The only fault is the size of the venue. It's quite small but that is the only downfall. It's clean and had a wonderful atmosphere. The fish cake for the starter which was the most amazing fish cake I have ever tasted. We then had the surf and turf. Perfectly cooked steak and delicious lobster. The staff were polite and... More

I didn't even stay for my starter, if a place has that many offers and deals and you still walk into an empty restaurant at a peak time, thens something is wrong. Shame that it`s not as it used to be when it was Larry`s

Dear Keiron S, Firstly I would like to say that we are pleased that the other four members of your party where overwhelmingly praisful of the 4 starters & 4 main courses that they had eaten the evening that you dined with us which I believe to have been last Wednesday, when we have our two for one main course...

I love Lobster but very few restaurants cook it properly. Its either over cooked or over flavoured. Relentless always manage to get it right. It is a great place to eat and is always busy, so its wise to book. The staff are efficient and helpful and although its quite small and busy it is comfortable and not too cramped... More

When I moved to Portsmouth 5 years ago I never expected to find a "favourite" place to eat and I am thrilled to bits to have found this place. The restaurant is the perfect size with lovely decor. I love the dark wooden finishes. The staff are always excellent, the ladies can't help you enough. The chefs are spot on... More

Five of us went here for our christmas meal. We had 5 different main courses, all cooked top perfection. My sirloin steak was melt in the mouth. Every course was cooked well. Service was very good, very attentive but not stifling. All in all a very nice meal and well worth the £28.50 per head. Well done relentless we will... More

Had our office christmas meal here. All had different meals, 3 courses £28.50, without exception all were well cooked and served. Scallops, lobster and steak exceptional and not small portions that you usually find when more expensive options are on the menu. Chips amazing, everyone said 'Oh, I won't manage all those' but suddenly they're all gone! Service really good,... More

We'd heard a lot of good stories about this place from friends and family. We went on a Wednesday night when you get 2 for 1 main meals if you book a starter, so steak and lobter (surf and turf) was the order of the day. It would have been reasonaly expensive at £25.95 but half price made it a... More
