This privately owned restaurant is well situated in Southsea shopping centre, on a street leading to the sea. We went there for lunch, between shopping, and had a very good lunch at a most reasonable price. The staff is dynamic, efficient and most welcoming, the dining areas well decorated and stylish. There is a good choice of dishes on the... More

We shared the charcuterie board and a bottle of house wine as an early dinner before a show. Excellent, one of the best we have had. Warm bread, meat, cheese, salad and chutney. Absolutely delicious. Staff were friendly, polite and helpful.

We had a delicious meal here - would definitely recommend the pork belly! The service could have been faster (we would have had coffee but gave up in the end!) and the desert wasn't quite as nice as the main course. However, the staff were friendly and we would highly recommend going here.

Pitched up this evening in a group of 11 for our belated Christmas dinner! We ate at 6 and caught the early bird set menu -a steal at £13.95 for 3 courses. Across our group we tried a variety of dishes and, without exception, each was delicious! The steaks were succulent and cooked to perfection, the brûlée was to die... More

Mains was a steak, fish n chips, salmon and mushroom tagliatelle. We were so full only two had dessert. We were early enough for 'Early Bird' Menu which was... More

First time visit and liked the look of the decor and was expecting great food, and certainly things got off to a good start. We had a table of 8 to start then as more turned up (works reunion) we asked to add tables and the waitress extremely accomodating and stated they were used to big groups. 2 of the... More

Went for Sunday lunch. Waited 1 hour for meal, which was tepid as it was served on cold plates. Requested water, didn't come. Requested extra gravy, came as we were finishing. Requested tooth picks, never came. Very disappointing.

I recently visited here with my boyfriend. We had the Camembert starter which was delicious and I had the fillet beef for my main which was absolutely fantastic! I actually couldn't quite finish it as I was so full but it was so good the boyfriend finished it for me! Would visit here again!

Had a Christmas lunch here and it was outstanding. The whole place smacks of stylish quality, the food is top notch and all delivered with warm customer service. This is a very special bar-restaurant - it's also the only place we go to for the best fillet steak in town! Highly recommend.
