It is varied and beautifully cooked, with attractive presentation. We feel it is one of the best restaurants in Dorchester. The wine is quality and... More

Dined here a few times now and each time has been superb. The food is exceptional and matched by the service. I would not hesitate to recommend No 6 to anyone.

No 6 was recommended by our hotel. On the whole it provides French cuisine. We had moules mariniere, the mussels were some of the best I have ever tasted! I then had sea bass and my husband had sirloin steak both of which were very well cooked. Very friendly and efficient service. The lighting in the restaurant was far too... More

We have now dined here three times over the last few months and this place has not let us down. The home cooked bread and the 'Moroccan' paste stimulate the taste buds before you tuck in to your choice from the menu. There is no doubting the emphasis on fresh fish and, having dined at Rick Stein's only a day... More

We went on Tuesday and had a great meal with a Groupon voucher. My husband is vegetarian, and although the menu is limited, the food was delicious. My husband had mushrooms as a starter, followed by pasta.I had baked Camembert, followed by chicken and leek pancakes, they were yummy. What really made it special, was the waiter Sam. A very...

We both had the crab bake starter which was delicious. Then we both had the duck breast in cider and apple sauce which tasted wonderful. The service was great and we had a lovely evening. Well worth driving 30 miles for!

My fiancé and I had very good meals here. We had a really flavourful Portland crab bake and fresh squid as starters. Our mains were skate wings and pheasant stew and both were equally delicious; best meal to wrap out tiring road trips!

Description
No 6 is just a stone's throw away from the town centre - come along, sit outside and sip an aperitif with some juicy, marinated olives. Order your Buckland Newton venison steak, Lyme Bay kings scallops or the freshly delivered Gurnard and indulge yourself with an exceptional dessert. Even, if you are in for a short lunch, there is plenty on the menu to get your taste buds going.
