Fantastic experience! Highly Recommended..We dined at Urban Reef on Sunday 30th October at 12.00 and had a great experience. Urban Reef really had a challenge to impress on this day as we dined with friends each of us from 4 and 5 star Hotel Management including The Mayfair Group of Hotels, Devere , Hilton, Guoman Hotels..We booked online using the website, the minute we entered the perimeter of the Restaurant we were immediately greeted by a member of staff who was dressed nicely, warm and welcoming. He asked our name and led us upstairs to the main Restaurant.
Our reservation was checked and taken to our table, satisfaction checked and given menus. We were then greeted by our waitress and drinks order taken which arrived promptly. We ordered a bottle of White Wine which was served in a clean wine bucket and served at the correct temperature by our waitress in to clean and polished glasses..Our order was then taken and satisfaction again checked. I ordered the New Forest (Nanny Williams’) blue cheese & beetroot soufflé with smoked paprika oil while my wife ordered the Slow braised Dorset rose veal shoulder on onion risotto with rocket pesto & truffle oil and friends ordered the Baked Somerset camembert served with herb oil, homebaked focaccia bread & house chutney to share..For the main course I ordered the locally caught Fish and Chips while everyone else opted for a Beef Sunday Lunch.
The starters arrived, served on clean plates again our satisfaction was checked and wine topped up. There is no way to criticise the food it was simply great, we all enjoyed every mouth full..Once we had finished our plates were cleared and satisfaction checked again. We were again asked if we would like any more drinks, water or bread. We attempted to pour our own wine and told "put it down it is Sunday, relax" and the wine was poured. Great Service!.After a nice break between courses of approx 15 minutes our main courses were served and once again very difficult to find any fault, each dish was served on a clean plate nicely presented on warm plates and each tasting absolutely great. Again satisfaction checked, wine topped up..Main courses were cleared and desserts offered, we ordered a couple of desserts which again were great and served promptly. Once we had finished we were asked if we would like anything else at which time we asked for the bill which was presented to us, our satisfaction again checked and we paid..The Restaurant itself is presented lovely in a great location with Sea Views with well thought out decor. The Restaurant is clean and all staff presented nicely with branded tops..The toilets are kept to a very high standard with paper towels, scented and maintained throughout. I have struggled on this occasion to find any fault with this Restaurant and congratulate the owner on a well deserved score..Great Service, Great Food, Great Atmosphere and Clean! Well done.
