Pay a visit to the Nativ restaurant in the seaside town of Bournemouth, where patrons are served a selection of authentic African dishes that are mouth-wateringly good.

The Nativ restaurant is a family-run business which first opened its doors in 2011.

Adventurous diners seeking something a little bit different to awaken a jaded palate will be delighted by the dining experience served up by the Nativ’s talented chefs.

All food is cooked to order so customers are assured of the freshest flavours and authentic textures. The expertly spiced dishes are seasoned to cater for everyone’s palates, from mild, medium and hot. A range of fresh ingredients grace each plate, with star attractions such as curried goat, chilli salmon, jollof, and jerk chicken among the many featuring proudly on the menu. Team tasty mains with dumplings and plain rice to achieve a well-balanced and filling plateful.

The service is relaxed and unhurried; allowing patrons to savour each delicious mouthful without feeling pressuredto vacate the table promptly. Like the food, the décor also remains faithful to its African roots with colourful African artworks adorning the walls to bring the sunshine indoors. The homely venue is a draw throughout the year where guests can expect quality food whatever the season.

Try something refreshingly different at the Nativ eatery in Bournemouth and embrace the vibrancy of Africa’s cuisine.

    Waited 2 hours for a black side dish to come out completely burnt, inedible
    Then the starters came 10 minutes later...well only one starter which were the lamb kebabs and you could not even bite it where it was just pure fat, also inedible.
    Then told 2 and half hours into the evening now that they will now prepare our main meal!! Hadn't been able to eat anything up to this point so we just walked out in the end.
    Funny thing was we were the only people in there! Unbelievable.

    Actually came here before a while ago and the food was nice, it's totally gone down hill in an epic way, actually made me feel sick!!! "
