The waiters make the place zing. The food is good, the location excellent. The tables are a bit small for the sort of dishes used.

We ate at La Place on the Saturday evening, you would need to book a table for a Saturday night as its not a large restaurant and was busy. We had a table for the evening and had a lovely unhurried meal with good food and wine!. The staff are really attentive but don’t hurry or hassle you. Just a... More

Keep meaning to upload a quick review and after visiting on Valentine's day lunchtime I am pleased to say that once again the food was fabulous and the service friendly. We've been dining here for many years and always feel welcome and always comment that it's a bit like being in France.

this is an outstanding genuine French restaurant run by a very French Gael and his friendly staff. Great location at the end of "The Green" by the Cathedral.

We had a very enjoyable family celebration for 34 guests recently. The staff were very helpful and friendly. They were very accommodating and relaxed about any last minute changes. The service was a bit slow to start with but once we'd been given our starters it flowed from there on. Food was tasty, enjoyable and well presented. House wine was... More

My husband and I visited La Place Bistro, in December, whilst staying in Winchester, firstly we were given the worst table by the front door in the restaurant, so spent most the evening shutting the door as other guests kept leaving it open, the starters were OK but the main course, a turkey meal, was obviously microwaved with very poor...
