We all love a good restaurant to share a plate of food and a laugh.

Since reopening their doors we've been steadily showing our support by eating out and have saved ourselves some washing up in the process.

We asked our Facebook group, We Grew Up In Bournemouth and Poole, what restaurants from the past they miss the most.

Dozens of food lovers responded, each of them eager to share their memories.

Scroll down to see if your favourite is among them.


Bournemouth Echo:

We all love a good pizza!

Luigi, located in Wimborne Road, was a firm favourite among locals.

Mrs T's Supper Rooms

Bournemouth Echo:

Who could forget Mr's T's Supper Rooms in Poole Road?

They didn't have a menu as such, just one allocated sitting time. If there was anything left over, they would dish it out for seconds.

Mr Pangs

Bournemouth Echo:

A good bit of Chinese grub!

This restuarant, located in Holdenhurst Road, was extremely popular while it was open.


Bournemouth Echo:

Salsa was a Latin bar and restuarant with Latin spirit and flair.

The Charminster Road eatery served great Mexican food.

Casa Pepe

Bournemouth Echo:

Perfect for meat eaters!

Casa Pape offered plenty on their menu but were most loved for their steaks. This Holdenhurst Road restaurant offered rump, fillet and sirloin as well as steak specials.
