A hidden treasure awaits as you pass through the fishmongers & find this beautiful restaurant, from the moment we were seated the staff were an absolute joy & very knowledgeable about the food they were serving, the presentation & flavours of the food was outstanding with each mouthful bringing a new flavour. We can honestly say this was the best... More

A group of 4 of us came to Milford-on-Sea for a holiday in April and we were keen to either try Verveine or La Perle for a nice dinner out, having read the Tripadvisor reviews in advance. When we checked the menus of both on arrival, we opted for Verveine, and couldn't have been happier with that decision! We actually... More

What a revelation! This small restaurant hides behind the fishmongers. The decor is simple but clean. There is a big window that overlooks grass and the vegetable garden. The menu is ingenious and very well thought out. We all had the a la carte but the fixed menu looked very good value. Your main course is from an extensive list... More

A great find and happy to review this restaurant. Menu is somewhat different, can take a while to choose, albeit not extensive, you'll see when you get there! Staff are friendly, helpful to explain the menu and service is quick. Food is excellent, cannot fault, so gave our compliments to the chef as we left. Loved the attention to detail,... More

Incomparable food, Michelin standard, with friendly atmosphere and attentive staff. Very much a fish restaurant, with a twist. I ate scallops, with belly pork (crispy as could be) and a selection of beautifully cooked veg. To start was Arbroath smokie with egg (yummie) and to finish an assortment of honeycomb, sorbet and raspberry. It'[s the little touches that make this... More

We were looking for a place to eat a light lunch. At two restaurants we were already been dismissed because of our dog. But not at the Verveine. The chef was very friendly and offered to have a table on the patio prepared. The service was very attentive and personal. The food was absolutely delicious and consisted of the freshest... More

This was a lovely place, lovely food and great atmosphere. The service was also good too. We had the John Dory with the soy dressing which was delicious and the scallop starter all well presented. One of our party found the portion not enough but overall very enjoyable. Good selection of decent wines and the raspberry and honeycomb desert was... More

We decided to venture out and experience fish cuisine in this little restaurant tucked at the back of a fishmongers. We can only describe it as out of this world. The whole evening was a journey for the tastebuds - surprised till the end. The staff, the food and the ambience, everything to perfection. Thank you so much for a... More
