I have been here twice and found the experience to not be very relaxing. The first time our food took ages to come out and when it did our order was wrong. There seemed to be a lot of confusion with the order and our table was close to the kitchen so felt quite chaotic. If you want a steak... More

Taken here by a work colleague. Good job I was starving as the name does it all for you. Not for the faint hearted. Don't let your eyes roll too far over the menu and let the staff guide you!

We ate at the elm grove est a while back and it was very good. Since then we've been to the port Solent on a few occasions. It is excellent, the best steak in Portsmouth without doubt. On Sunday we had the carvery (which I have read is overpriced at £14.95) you will not get a better carvery anywhere. There's... More

It was a Monday lunch time, which is obviously not the busiest time to eat at a restaurant. However my friend and I were the only two people there, and the service was still awful! We were served by a very grumpy lady who did not look at all impressed that we had come to eat. Once we were seated... More

My husband took me to Relentless for a birthday treat - we had the surf and turf it was first class. The Ribeye steak was tender and cooked to perfection, the lobster was juicy and tasty - service was also first class considering there were lots of Christmas Party's in - the restaurant was packed - the only drawback to...

I pass the Restuarant almost everyday and there doesn't seem to be any lights on during normal working hours, as I wanted to take some friends out the other night, having eaten there before the food was excellent - so are you guys open or what?
