Being out in the town and having read good reviews of this place, I decided to drop in for a simple Tapas lunch. Sadly it was disappointing. the Calamari was fine although not particularly crispy and sadly the Paella was very average, a real disappointment particularly when you'd think that this would be something they would be proud off. I'll... More

Having moved to Southampton 3 years ago and always wondering what the La Regata was like we finally went in on Friday evening. It was worth the wait!!!! Excellent service, great atmosphere and fantastic food and wine. Will go again with a big group.

Perfect location easy to access and close to the Red Funnel Terminal and Ocean Village. Bar area seating worked well whilst making our way through the massive menu, almost too much but we settled for the a la carte. Service was quick efficient and served by a team of well organised and very pleasant staff.

La Regata restaurant has been a good restaurant for many years now and I have been popping in for a very reasonably priced and well cooked steak a number of times. Antonio the owner has always been a fine host and created a warm Spanish atmosphere. His son Jamie has since taken over his fathers business and has done a... More

The staff are friendly, the décor is in character, Estrella is on tap, the Sangria hits the mark, and the food is to die for. It's not cheap. But you get what you pay for.

Eating on a Saturday night we were glad we'd booked as the restaurant was full. This made for a great atmosphere and we were well looked after by the waiting staff. Having been shown to our table on the upstairs level we were given food & drink menus and alerted to the “Specials” boards. Being a Spanish restaurant we ordered... More

Ate here with friends as a pre cruise evening meal. From the moment we walked in we felt extremely welcome and the service attentive and helpful. The choice of food was outstanding and very reasonably priced. Wine was lovely and again not overpriced. The Tapas is lovely, full of flavour, the fish was outstanding. A truly lovely place to eat.

I've been visiting La Regatta for more years than I can remember and I have never been disappointed. Go there for a drink and a snack, a business lunch, Christmas party, post boat show jolly with friends, or just fancy some great tappas and a decent bottle of wine, (as was the case last Saturday), it's always 100% reliable.

La Regata restaurant is well placed across the road from Town Quay. Although there is no on site parking there are pay & display car parks close by. The restaurant is spacious with a choice of 2 floors. The décor was tasteful with Spanish influences. There was a variety of different sized tables which were well spaced. The waiting staff... More

I have been to this restaurant a number of times, most recently with my mum for lunch. I had only ever been for dinner before and think that going at lunch time may have been even better as it was quieter than a busy evening dinner service. The food is always delicious and serviced in hot dishes which is great... More
