I could write an essay on how bad this place is but I don't wish to spend anymore of my time then I have to as this restruuant has already wasted my money and time when I visited. Service - rude/grumpy manager (young bar staff were ok) Drink prices - very expensive!!! Food - worse thing of all, lasagne was... More

The food was very expensive for what was simple food. The restaurant is very blandly decorated and reminds me of a canteen. Hardly fine dining.

Do not expect fine dining, though it is expensive for the offerings on the menu. It can be a hit or miss in this popular place. Some of the dishes definitely have added ingredients from what is expected thus your order may be somewhat dismal. The outside seating area is a great meeting place with the heated canopies though it... More

Visited as part of a group of 9 people for a family friend's Birthday on a Friday evening. It was pretty quiet on the whole with only one or two other tables occupied. Starters arrived fine, but when it came to the main courses four of us were left without our orders. After much faffing and confusion from the many... More

Had dinner with friends on a busy summer evening. Service was a little slow but once the food arrived it was enjoyed by all.

It has taken me a while to write this review, as I wanted to have time to reflect calmly on what was supposed to be a family celebration but turned in to a disaster! We visited the Hamble Banana Wharf on August Bank Holiday Monday. 29th August to be precise, I know because it was my son's birthday. He had... More

Having eaten here on a number of occasions with the insistence of friends. The food has been disappointing when they bring you the item you order. Staff are more important than their customers needs and this is due to poor training if any which is so typical these days. Expensive for a limited choice Menu and no proper beer.

Late in the season, so not too busy, this smart-looking restaurant is ideally placed for a leisurely lunch. Although the staff were pleasant and the surroundings picturesque, the food was quite average and the wine expensive (a French Pays d'Oc was £20). Plenty of wealthy boat owners around to add to the pretentiousness, but this place just didn't do it... More
