Lunch with a friend visiting from college, service was fantastic the manager especially was great and really showed attention to detail! The setting was perfect right next to the boat yard and food was fab piping hot and came quickly despite the restaurant getting fairly...busy for a Tuesday lunch time… my friend had a pizza I had fajitas with chicken and beef which came with just chicken to begin with but was very quickly resolved (always a good sign) and delicious none the less! We also had coffees and desert again exceptional! We will definitely be back soon! Thankyou for a lovely afternoon banana warf!More

Simple, unsophisticated but satisfying dinner overseeing Port Hamble Marina. While my stir fry was a bit cold (and the chocolate fondue also for that matter) we did enjoy the ‘French personal touch’ of the Manager and the friendliness of the staff.

Went for lunch on good Friday with the wife and was greeted by the most arrogant rude obnoxious Frenchman I have ever met! Promptly told him where to shove his table and would never go back. Was admittedly very busy but no excuse to be...rude to a paying customer. Much better places to eat with friendly welcoming staff members.More

Chic modern dining overlooking Hamble. Great menu of quality food served with enthusiasm; hence pretty busy, so book if you can. Refreshingly good.

Everyone was really friendly, helpful and cheerful. It was so nice to be served by people who appear to be happy in their work. The food was delicious and plentiful. Overall our lunch was a complete success.

As a person who suffers with celiac it is a nightmare when going out to eat, however this restaurant hits everything that I am looking for! My needs have been taken care of by the team. The gluten free food was delicious and I was...pleasantly suprised that I could order majority of the foods on the menu as they provided a gluten free option for pretty much everything! The person who seemed like the owner is a ver pleasant and welcoming person and you can tell that a lot of effort and care goes into their delicious food. Banana warf if my go to restaurant. Thank you so much for creating a folder for thise with allergies so they can look into your ingredients list, makes life so much easier!More

What an evening! Service was first class and the food was excellent with plenty of it! Made all much better with the friendly banter of the French gentleman (sorry didn’t know your name). Will definitely be back very soon and be the last ones out...again!More

No - that’s the Gaff Rigger. This is in the Harbour further up the river. Both are excellent :-)
