Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Totally AMAZING! We have lived in Fareham for many years and knew of the reputation of Truffles but some how managed to miss it until yesterday. This has to be the best in Fareham for an intimate dinner with friends or just couples. I guess...there were about 16 other diners in the restaurant the ambience was just right. The main event, the food! Each and every course was cooked and presented to perfection. Hake, Pork Loin and Venison - excellent. The Velouté was out of this world and the desserts amazing. The cheese board packs some flavours and the presentation brilliant The service and welcome (same friendly lady) was warm and attentive. Our total spend of 3 courses for 4 with wine, water and a couple of 0% beers was around £50 per head. Don't miss it!More

The restaurant was delightful We were here for my birthday dinner. We were the only 2 persons booking dinner, but it was a lovely evening. The food was delicious, we were full, but my husband ordered a sweet for him to take home. We had...a great evening! Will look forward to going again.More

We visit this restaurant regularly as a couple, but for our last visit we brough a friend along who was as impressed as we were. The small menu, which changes every couple of months, ensures that the food is really fresh and of a consistently...high standard. One of us is a non- meat eater and the creative vegetarian dishes are some of the best I've eaten. The restaurant itself is small, so it always has a nice intimate feel. The service is attentive, without being intrusive. I can't recommend it highly enough.More

Simply excellent food! Ate here with friends and we were all thoroughly delighted with the food - the restaurant itself is small (probably 20 covers) snd modt other tables were occupied but bur service was good, and the food arrived in good time. Pork &...Mustard Croquette and then Roasted Cod were my choices - both were delicious, and even had room for a chocolate brownie. Wine choices excellent and vegetarians catered for (although slightly limited choices). One recommendation would be wider choice of alcohol free drinks...More

Amazing food! Lovely, friendly service; a really positive experience all round! I am coeliac and dairy intolerant and it was all no problem! I had a delicious dessert of coconut milk pudding with pineapple and chilli salsa and a coconut tuille!! Awesome!! thanks for a...lovely evening! The art on the walls by G Bowaitch , (I think!) is also really inspiring and fits perfectly with the decor!More

We was invited to visit some friends who just moved to the area and they selected this restaurant and what can I say the food is absolutely unbelievable I’ve not had such fine dining in many of years if I lived closer, I would be...a regular customer from the moment you walking to the moment you leave. It’s the best experience of service and food cannot wait to visit again.More

Some indicators of a really good restaurant:- Small menu with no specials, meaning that all the menu items are special:- check Good wine list with carefully thought out options including local options where appropriate:- check Food doesn't appear immediately, in fact takes long enough to...have been cooked from scratch:- check Portion sizes are just right, not so small as to leave you hungry and not so large as to leave you bloated :- check The food we had was, quite simply, superb. The service attentive but not overbearing, friendly but not overly so and helpfully informative and, whilst not the cheapest restaurant I've been to extremely good value for money. We went on a Saturday night, for my birthday, as it happens, and had a wonderful time. I cannot recommend them highly enough, definitely for gourmets not gourmands!More

My family were all very satisfied by both the service and the food in Truffles. The staff was very welcoming and helpful, and the food was great. Some dishes from different menus were fairly similar, but distinguished enough to both warrant being tried out.

This small and intimate restaurant in the High St, Fareham is a little gem. The food is outstanding. On speaking to the owner we were advised that the menu changes fortnightly. If you haven’t eaten here, you must give it a go. You won’t be...disappointed.More
