Established in 1988 as a family business, Andre’s Food Bar is Southsea’s oldest independent sandwich shop. We have been successfully feeding the city for over 30 years and are the place to go for the freshest filled baguettes, croissants and delicious tempting treats. Now being run by the next generation, Andre, the family’s oldest son has worked in the business since he could barely see over the counter, so it’s fair to say he knows his bagels from his baguettes! He’s also the guardian of our many secret recipes, including our famous garlic chicken, the jalapeno quiche and our home-made mayo. He can still be found working in the shop most days so be sure to pop in and say hello! So whether

Excellent beverages! for a quick cup of coffee and amazing treats and sandwiches, a little bit on the expensive side but the quality of food will be justified.

We have used this place frequently over the Summer for picnics etc and there's a fab selection of baguettes, paninis, salads and more. Always a friendly, professional service and very efficient. In particular I love the Steak panini, but must try their homemade quiches one...day. Big thumbs up!More

First timer. Ordered a bacon Brie and cranberry baguette. Bread was great. Brie was brie. But, the bacon was incredibly salty, with the consistency of tiny rubber beads; which was a disappointment. Cranberry seemed non-existent. Cranberry should enhance the flavour of meat and add zest...to cheese, but in this instance it did neither. Budget cranberry sauce perhaps? All sweetness and no zing. Regardless, it was lost in the overly salty mass of rubbery bacon bits. I'm not giving up on this venue though as the food was nicely presented, and the bread was perfect.More

I contacted Andre’s via Facebook for advice about allergens in their food. They were very helpful and responsive to the messages I sent despite the many challenges they must be facing in this current climate. I visited today and ordered an adapted version of a...standard baguette which they are not generally offering but did so due to my allergy. I had the garlic chicken baguette and it was delicious. Very friendly staff, helpful and lovely food, will definitely be back 😃More

Had the egg bacon and mayo, sliced tomato .. black pepper.. seriously got to be the best I have had. Worth the price tag of £5.50 . Normally would not pay that much but was recommended by a friend and was worth the visit ....Coffee is good, double espresso was 23 seconds and the correct amount. Worth the visit if your nearby.More

Loved Andres for years. The garlic chicken is a firm favourite and I’m delighted there’s a city centre Andres now just round the corner from work. Win!

Overall, we were not hugely impressed. This gives the impression that it is going to be a continental food bar, whereas it is in fact a bakery come sandwich shop. Nothing wrong with that, but it felt quite expensive for a couple of pastries. Pastries...were decent, but the whole place wasn't really what we thought we were getting.More

I'm guessing not as it's a good outlet. Normally they only allow guide dogs and the like. Give them a call on 023 9281 7911 :-)
