Decided to eat here after looking at several nearby places.There is a good selection of food and drink to suit all tastes and all reasonably priced.We all ordered the fish and chips which were served with mushy peas and tartare sauce,the food arrived quickly and tasted great.With great views of the solent and a good atmosphere i will definitely be returning .

On a day trip to the coast we decided to have something to eat at the Southsea Beach Cafe. We were very pleased with our choice as the Cafe exudes atmosphere with a superb view of the Solent only to be followed by an excellent lunch. The menu is very comprehensive, with something for everybody, but on this occasion we both chose the Ploughman's Lunch which was very tasty. All the meals being brought out looked inviting & next time I think the fishcakes will probably be my choice. Specials were available, on the day, so we think everybody would have found something they liked. Thanks to all for providing us with another great lunchtime beside the sea.

Amazingly good choice of well cooked and imaginative food with friendly service in quite a plain café. However, the prices are good the menu including today a 7 ounce steak with trimmings, or roast hake with sag aloo and curry sauce show imagination. My golden& purple salad with feta cheese was good as was my flat white coffee. My granddaughters enjoyed their pulled pork with pancakes and roasted vegetables, my daughter and wife enjoyed the fishcakes with salad and mini pancakes. Apple juice, smoothies, milk shakes etc all very good and service was helpful, friendly and unobtrusive. Do NOT be put off by the plain exterior.

Great little breakfast place right on the beach. Fresh orange juice available (£3.50) but check out the French toast - it’s massive and will give you your calories for the day!!

Staff pleasant - toilets available.

After a lovely walk from Old Portsmouth to Southsea, we stopped of at the stylish, well- positioned Beach Cafe for our reward... and it was indeed a super rewarding lunch. The menu is very tempting with a good range of choices plus a special of the day. Good to see healthy options as well as mouth-watering beautifully cooked favourites such as fish and chips. The pulled pork tacos as delicious, light yet filling. The Earl Grey and lemon drizzle cake for afters was a delight - yummy. We chose the cafe because it is doggy friendly with a whole section of the cafe allocated for dog walkers. They are given a bowl of water without even having to all and treats such as doggy ice cream are available. As the cafe is right on the beach the location is ideal. Staff were very friendly, efficient and great at recommending choices to suit you. I didn't need dinner that night... Just a light supper. Great venue, highly recommended.
