A taste of Spain in Southampton, always a pleasure and never a chore

I have been to La Regata several times over the last few years and wanted to leave a review. I have been with family and friends. No matter what the occasion, it never fails to disappoint and it would be one of my first choices of places to eat out in, in Southampton. We have mainly had... read more

This was possibly our fifth or sixth visit to La Regata Restaurant but this time it fell a bit short of our expectations. The service is poor, as the staff are constantly chatting in Spanish among themselves. The atmosphere was even more depressing than a burial. Treat the staff professionally i.e. not as friends, or else they will gossip about... More

Can be both excellent and dissapointing in equal measures. The staff are, however, always very friendly and accommodating.

We decided late Friday night that we wanted to go to La Regata on Saturday. A quick email to Jamie (the owner) & a table for 2 was reserved. We decided instead of a large juicy fillet steak which is what I normally have I'd go for Tapas. I've eaten in La Regata many times but never taken advantage of... More

We have been to La Regata a coupe of times in May and we will be going again soon. the food is excellent, service fast and friendly and the proximity to the ferry terminal is a huge bonus. The restaurant is authentic Spanish unlike some tapas bars. it is well worth experimenting with a few new dishes.

My parents found La Regata during the last Southampton boat show and recommended it to me. I have since returned 3 times (for both lunch and dinner), with family including an 8 year old, with friends and on a date so I would definitely say it is appropriate for all groups and ages! The food is fresh, authentic tapas and... More

We have eaten at this restaurant a couple of times in 2014 with good experience. However, this was with good friends visiting from London and the atmosphere was very relaxed so we focused more on the food & wine and they were both excellent. We choose a few specials from the board, a couple of favorites from the menu and... More
