Was persuaded by the menu price to eat here...which is not something we usually do. Live jazz playing was great. The service was very good, honest and friendly. The food really good especially for the price. I highly recommend the cod with chorizo risotto. A great afternoon experience and I can't believe its position, because we have eaten at most... More

My husband and I enjoyed a very nice Sunday lunch here. We had three courses for £16 and it was excellent. The staff were friendly and service was very good too.

Staff are nice - verging on the familiar but that's just friendly in others opinions. Wine - virtually everything was unavailable. Ended up with something god awful and undrinkable Food - dry, poorly prepared and without soul. It wasn't even late in the evening but the salad was dry, veg tasteless and cheese as though it had been refrigerated since... More

My boyfriend and I decided to try somewhere new for a quiet meal out, and after reading the previous reviews we thought we'd give Restaurant 69 a go. On arrival the waitress was very friendly and polite and we were seated almost immediately. One of the main reasons we had chosen this restaurant were the impressive mains shown on their... More

The platter included an assortment of succulent cured meats , a range of cheeses , pâté , warm bread , and a very tasty... More

I've eaten here several times and have always came away delighted. Came here with my parter spare of the moment, we hadn't booked. The staff looked a little flustered when we came in and got the impression that they didn't really want us there, despite there being plenty of room in the restaurant. However we were eventually seated and enjoyed... More

If you're in Southsea don't miss out on a visit to this little gem of a restaurant. Visited on a Tuesday night & it was surprisingly busy, the locals are obviously in the know..... So we followed! Food was excellent we both had fish dishes. Portions were ample, fish was fresh & flavoursome with some unusual combinations.
