Lovely Tapas

We were staying in Southampton overnight and decided to pop in to La Regata for something to eat. The food was excellent and the atmosphere very welcoming. We finished up taking our wine outside on a beautiful evening and watching the sunset...

This restaurant puts you in the holiday mood as soon as you walk through the door. The range of food is fantastic and the fish and seafood selection is amazing. We visited as a table of 8 and everyone really enjoyed their food. The service is quite slow and relaxed but it seems to match the atmosphere in the restaurant.... More

We had seen great reviews for La Regatta,,,So we popped in after a great day on the Isle of Wight. We had not booked so did not know if we could be catered for., However the lady managed to find us a table for 2. Was busy. Thanks for that.The food was quickly served considering we had 6 different dishes... More

I've been going to this restaurant for a long time and never had a complaint about anything. The staff are very good, they are very friendly and the food is consistently good. We always come back here because it's what you know. Well done Antonio, you've got it right, thank you x

Superb food, four of us scoffed our way through a considerable selection of dishes, all of which were great. The Patatas, croquetas cocido, paella, calamares, & gambas pil pil were all memorable. Service was good & friendly. Drinks reasonably priced. Only criticism was that the cheese selection was a little disappointing & the waitress didn't know what the cheeses were.... More

Will start with the good, food always really nice and good sangria. Lovely decorated place with smiling staff. The bad, last night, big group of people sat upstiars totally ruined the night for most people in the restaurant. We didn't even realise there was music on in there till an hour in as the noise was so bad, people screaming... More

We wanted to eat out somewhere nice as we arrived in Southampton for a one night stay pre cruise and we wanted something within walking distance of our hotel - the Holiday Inn next to the Mayflower Park. We looked on TripAdvisor and online for La Regata's website and decided to go for it - we booked online but that... More

Had a lovely meal between four friends. Lovely friendly staff willing to input into our choice of tapas dishes catering for allergies very well. Cannot wait to eat there again soon!

Most recently visited last night but we have been on several occasions both as a couple and with large groups. I agree with other reviews that service can be slow but it's a chilled out relaxed atmosphere. meal is always reasonable too! tapas is beautiful. I recommend the octopus and the dates !

The food here is great, never had a bad meal. The fish dishes are particularly good. My only issue is that it is very noisy inside and extremely hot. So much that we sat outside to eat. Investment in air conditioning would encourage people to stay a little longer and maybe turn the music down a touch?
