Nice food, good local atmosphere

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.

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.

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

We discovered this place by accident and very glad we did as the food was of a high standard. We chose the early bird menu and a variety of starters plus mains which filled us so much, we didn't have a sweet. We will return as it is such good value and my suspicion that the chef was from Barnaby's... More

My partner and I have been here twice now for a Sunday Roast and I have to say that the food is top quality. Having visited various establishments in Southsea I have to say this is one of the best we have come across! We ordered a roast lamb each and pudding and the price was £13.99 each, great value...

I booked the upstairs room for a sit down three course meal for forty two people for my parents Diamond Wedding Anniversary which took place last night. What a wonderful evening it was! Guests chose various starters, mains and desserts and every single guest thought the food outstanding, not one complaint! Well done chef! The owner and her staff were... More
