“Excellent Lunch”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

First trip to this restaurant in the bustling precinct area of Southsea . Reasonable lunch choice , including their 'shared' lunch platter and bottle of house wine for only £22 . We opted for this . The platter included an assortment of succulent cured meats , a range of cheeses , pâté , warm bread , and a very tasty onion chutney . Very friendly and helpful waitresses .

“Lovely meal”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

I've eaten here several times and have always came away delighted.
Came here with my parter spare of the moment, we hadn't booked. The staff looked a little flustered when we came in and got the impression that they didn't really want us there, despite there being plenty of room in the restaurant.
However we were eventually seated and enjoyed a wonderful meal which was also great value. There was also some live music by a very talented duo which was an unexpected bonus!
The portions are always ample and cooked beautifully with fresh ingredients.
Will definitely be returning but will be sure to book next time!

“our 25th wedding anniversary!”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

my husband read the reviews on trip advisor before booking this restaurant. As it was a "big one" our 25th wedding anniversary he wanted to make sure everything was perfect.He booked a table in advantage and even called again to check the reservation was ok- which the lady on the phone confirmed it was!. On arriving at the restaurant there appeared to be a private gathering with people sat having a drink outside, we walked up and said we had a reservation for 7pm with that the reply came " we have no chef tonight" My poor husband was exasperated he explained that he had made a reservation but her reply was still no chef. We were absolutely appalled that no contact had been made even though my husband had left a contact number for himself and also reconfirmed the booking. We will never recommend this bar / restaurant because of the poor customer care given it totally ruined our special occasion

“Great Find”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

If you're in Southsea don't miss out on a visit to this little gem of a restaurant.
Visited on a Tuesday night & it was surprisingly busy, the locals are obviously in the know..... So we followed!
Food was excellent we both had fish dishes. Portions were ample, fish was fresh & flavoursome with some unusual combinations.
