After reading some of the reviews thought we would give it a go, it wasn't bad for a mid week dinner three courses for £12.95 with 5 options for each course we both had white bait to start then meat pie and chicken and for pudding cream bruee all the food was nicely presented and hot.

This was a very enjoyable visit and a pleasant occasion. The restaurant was busy for Sunday lunch but the service was very good and we were not left waiting for long, before the food was served. All the food, without exception was piping hot and the meat was cooked to perfection with ample portions. The plentiful amount of vegetables were... More

We chose Restaurant 69 for our last meal of the week in Southsea. Whenever we passed this restaurant during our week it was always busy and vibrant. They offered an 'Early Bird' menu as well as an al a carte menu. The EB menu offers 3 courses for £12.95 with a great choice for each course. We both ordered the... More

I ate here a few months ago, the service wasn't the best, the waitress didn't know what the soup of the day was and she was a little slow taking our order. Also, the food took longer than average to come. But when it did come, it was absolutely delicious. My steak cut like butter and was perfectly cooked and... More

Great music and a good vibe. Really enjoyed another good evening here with friends. Although really busy it never takes too long to be served and the clientele are always friendly.

We were looking for somewhere to eat and found this little restaurant - it seemed to have a buzz about it with quite a few locals at the bar, and the menu looked interesting and good value. We weren't disappointed, the meal was very nice and the staff really friendly.

Between the two of us we had the mussels, salmon and pork belly with a cheeky little white from Chile. Without doubt, the best meal in UK on our trip to date!

We were told about this restaurant by a friend so we decided to try it. Last week we had lunch there and tried the sharing fish platter. It was very good, tasted fresh and reasonably priced. The waitress was extremely friendly and it was obvious that it has a regular band of diners. People were popping in to say hello... More

Having become regulars at this restaurant and cooked our own Sunday Roast to perfection and thought we would be left feeling disappointed if we ate out we decided to do exactly that. Booked in for 1 pm, I had the beef, my wife the lamb. Perfectly cooked and an ample portion, roast were excellent, and my wife's favourite way of... More
