All the food was cooked to perfection. We sampled several meat dishes - steak, lamb shank, beef and chicken; all were tender and expertly cooked, and well presented. Portions were generous. The atmosphere was relaxed and service was exceptional. We visited 3 times within 5 days; the first two visits without a booking, but we were 'fitted in'. We booked for the third visit, but due to a personal emergency, we arrived nearly 45 minutes late. Again, staff were accommodating and we were the last to leave, as the restaurant does close around 10.00pm. DO NOT MISS THIS LITTLE GEM.

I know this review is late almost 3months late but really you must try this hidden gem!
Tried for the first time last year and ended up going twice in a week !
Down in Weymouth this year celebrating a 50th birthday with a party of 10 well it was better than previous year!
It's small but very welcoming and often the chef is on hand to have a chat after service.
The food is all good with generous portions..do book because this hidden gem is not so hidden now!!
Go and try you will not be disappointed!

The food at Restaurant 43 is simply wonderful. It is a small and welcoming restaurant; we were very well looked after by our young waiter. The wine was served quickly (always a plus point for me!) and he was attentive throughout. We started with smoked salmon parcels with avocado salsa and scallops with cauliflower two ways; the scallops were cooked perfectly and the cauliflower puree and tempura were delicious! We had the special for our main course which was smoked haddock with spiced potato cake and buttered peas, beans and strips of cabbage - all cooked to perfection. The portions were a great size too. Please go and eat here, you won't regret it.

Last night we had a fabulous meal, the duck as a starter was superb and the steak was fantastic, topped off with homemade onion rings. We will definately book here again.

came here with friends. we were shown to table by a young man. 3 of us ordered steak and my husband had paella. The steak was ok but not cooked to how I had asked. I wanted medium to rare but it was more medium to well done. My husband said paella was nice but could have a bit more seafood in. The cheesecake for pudding was delicious tho!
We felt the service wasn't great. We weren't asked if we wanted anymore drinks throughout our meal or asked if everything was ok with be food. So service could be improved.
