This was our first visit to Bournemouth and our first visit to Neo.

We had a great day visiting friends and pub crawling. Our friends highly recommend we visit this restaurant as it is a great place for food and cocktails. We were not disappointed.

From the first moment we walked in we were warmly welcomed and taken to a table. First thing first..... Cocktails!!!!! Wow.. just amazing !!
The barman knew his stuff and there was no lack of choice !!! If I knew this earlier I would not have gone anywhere else. THANK YOU SIR.

As for the food,we had steak and it was cooked to perfection. The menu itself is very intensive with great choice that would leave anyone wanting more. Staff were very friendly and helpful. I can not recommend this place enough.

Great place to be and we will definately be seeing you soon.

I can honestly say that in many trips up and down the UK I have never been more impressed.

From what I could see this place has simply got it right.

As someone who works in the industry myself I often over critique places I eat, coming here though it didn't matter; immaculate presentation of property, tables and staff, the manager (Florin I think) was exceptional . He spent time talking with us as well as others nearby at the table but not for too long as to be intrusive, he was also very courteous when asked for assistance by a member of his team and very graciously parted ways, something many managers get wrong.

The food was to die for (chateaubriand served medium) and the cocktails were by a mile the best in the area where did they find this mixologist !!!!

If you chose to eat somewhere else you are honestly mad.

Would return again every night (if I could afford it)

It's been a awhile since we've been out as a couple so we wanted to spoil ourselves.

Neo's has defiantly left an impression on us. Just a perfect treat. Absolutely glorious food. We had the cheese souffle, followed by the sea bass paired with an amazing bottle of Sauvignon Blanc - Whale Watcher I believe as recommended by our waiter. The service was very attentive and considerate for our romantic evening. Just a dream dinner, all cooked to perfection.

We continued to the bar for their signature cocktails, absolutely divine!
We will defintaly be visiting again. Thank you

We started off our evening enjoying two really excellent cocktails are the bar. We then moved up to the restaurant and enjoyed delicious oysters, steak and pork belly, along with lovely wines - with very attentive service from start to finish from Marie (thank you, Marie!). Our dessert of peanut butter cheesecake was also yummy. A really lovely evening in a great location.
