Very nice restaurant, food was excellent, service was slow but the staff seemed very keen for us to go, whisking away plates before we had all finished. Very strange!
Nice decor but lighting too bright hence the room lacks any atmosphere . Light music in toilets but sadly couldnt be heard within the restaurant. Food very good & full of strong flavours. Chef Arren very personable, eager to please and passionate of his good food. Cannot be said for the 2 members of staff. The greeting and waitering was far too serious & austere for this type of venue. A more light and friendly approach would be more welcoming.
The friendly service we received from the moment we entered the restaurant was outstanding. The food was delicious and beautifully presented and the pudding was exceptional. The waitress was extremely helpful and pleasant.
From The South is a delightful Mediterranean restaurant situated on Commercial Road in Poole’s Parkstone district. This gem was set up by three gentlemen with a passion for the flavours of Southern Europe, and the food offering truly represents their love of food. The menu is uncomplicated, with Mediterranean-inspired dishes featuring lots of seafood, tapas options as well as some chef’s favourites like great steak and traditional beer-battered fish. If you’re heading to From The South for lunch, we highly recommend trying one of their famous French croques sandwiches, served warm with Béchamel sauce. Go for the Portuguese spin on this classic dish with Iberic chorizo and cured sheep's cheese, or try the decadent vegetarian option by the name of Ortolana which comes with garlic mushrooms, spinach and mature cheddar.
