This is my second visit to La Regatta, the first was 6 months ago, and the food, wine & service was just as good second time round. The staff are friendly and helpful, but the food is just brilliant! My favorites are the goats cheese,...and the cheese stuffed dates wrapped in parma ham. The others in our group had lots of fishy options and loved them all. We were the last to leave the restaurant but did not feel rushed at any time. I just wish I lived closer!More

My girlfriend & I visited La Regata after reading the great TripAdvisor reviews.
We were not disappointed....we were in a bit of a rush as we were seeing a show at 7.30pm & we booked & arrived dead on when they opened at 5.30pm
Very...quickly it got busier, so we were pleased that the food came quickly & was all superb & tasty.
We had 6 tapas between us:
Pollo & Chorizo
Salt Cod Croquettes
Pork Crackling with Apple Sauce
I had a lovely Sangria to drink, which was the best example of this drink for a long time, including when I've been recently in Spain!
Can't wait to revisit this restaurant on our next visit to Southampton.More
We have been visiting here for 6 years plus, every visit has been fabulous! We were sceptical with lockdown etc wondering if still as good and will it still be the same staff? Our 5 hour drive was without worth it! Food is still amazing...the place was packed! The young lady that served had only been there two weeks she said , she did a grand job and most staff still the same 😀 we will be back again we loved it!More
Been wanting to go here for ages and whilst it didn't disappoint it didn't quite live up to the hype! Reasonably priced which was a nice surprise but many dishes very oily and many I wouldn't order again if I returned which was a shame....Sangria, delicous!More
We love visiting this consistently excellent restaurant. Our most recent visit was on Mothering Sunday when we thought my Mum would like a taste of Spain for her day. The restaurant was busy when we arrived and we were seated upstairs which gave us a...nice elevated view. Lots of choice on the menu and for the 3 of us we chose a selection of 8 Tapas dishes all of which were perfectly cooked and were enjoyed very much by us all. The Calamari was particularly good in its lovely light batter. Super efficient friendly service as we have come to expect. La Regata remains our favourite restaurant choice in the city and we look forward to returning.More
