Good quality, well priced tapas

This is a bit of a find - a lovely, traditionally furnished Spanish restaurant in old Southampton. The menu covered all bases with a good selection of tapas and some nice sounding specials on the board. We stuck to tapas for lunch; these were lovely - simple with good quality ingredients.

So lucky to have this on our doorstep. Amazing food ,although the menu is huge ,which can sometimes mean a compromise on quality. Not so at La Regata. Every course stands out and the great selection of fish was a real treat. Absolutely loved the swordfish, but we were spoilt for choice. It was busy , however we were not... More

On arrival, we were greeted almost immediately, and although it was a busy evening and we had not booked, it seemed that there was no trouble, and a table was found for us. There is a huge choice of meals on the menu, from traditional tapas(ah Madrid) and very generous portions of main meals. We choose to share several tapas... More

I came here with friends to celebrate a 30th Birthday. A great Spanish traditional feel to the decor and tables were well spaced. An amazing menu with choice of tapas or a la carte meals. Quality food service and price. Thank you I will be back !

I am disappointed with La Regatta, it looks good close to the waterfront in Southampton but the experience does not match the expectation. I asked for the Pollo Al Chorizo in tomato sauce £5.95, Potatoes Aioli £3.80 & Tomate Y Manchego £5.95 The chicken was dry the tomato salad would barely fill a coffee mug. It was all served on...

Good range of dishes both tapas and mains, relaxed service time to chat and savour . never hustle you for the bill. One visit never enough.

Only live a few minutes away but had never been before, hubby asked if I'd like to go as he had been before with friends. It was very quiet but think this was because it was a cracking day so everyone was at the beach or the park (I am not a sunbather as I fry to a crisp, so... More

I was staying in Southampton on business trip and happened upon this restaurant having been originally recommended the restaurant next door which was Italian. When I saw the menu I was smitten as I do miss lovely Spanish food. The food was excellent and the restaurant itself had a lovely ambience. I would love to have given this place a... More

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
