Went for lunch with my husband. Not really knowing what to choose, we decided on the SELECCION DE TAPAS VARIADAS (mixed) meal for 2. Which was delicious, a good choice and ideal for lunchtime. Although I did think that the price of £29.50 was rather expensive. Surroundings are very pleasant with a little outside seating area to sit and take... More

La Regata is easy to find being at the bottom of Southampton opposite the Isle of Wight ferry. They offer a wide selection of tapas with good sized portions. The service is friendly and the food consistently good and authentic. Recommended are the Pan Catalan and Patatas Con Chorizo, amongst others, and the menus are online. They close between 2.30...

We'd never been here before and we were surprised to see how lovely the restaurant looks. It has some lovely open space, some excellent decor (including trees on the inside, I was quite pleased with that) and a bit of seating outside that I should imagine is lovely in the warmer weather. We were seated straight away and we ordered... More

Went to La Regata in March for my 21st birthday celebration. First of all the price is not bad at all, so no dramas about that. The food was incredible; the selection of tapas that they offer caters to any tastes, and it's all delicious. Sangria wasn't bad either!

I suggested we go here to some friends as previously I was impressed with the food and service. What a mistake!

This restaurant is situated right opposite the Quay and it's great to have a walk before or after your meal along the front. We were a party of 7 and we all had 3 Tapas dishes each which we then shared. The food was delicious and the atmosphere great. This is definitely the best Tapas I have eaten. All the... More

We ate here late on a Friday night and so the place was very busy, but we were still seated quickly and our drinks orders taken with no delay. We chose a selection of tapas and particularly enjoyed the chicken and chorizo, the pimentos fritos and the squid with alioli. I was really impressed they had Crema Catalana on their... More

We entered the restaurant and were eventually met by a rather surly young man who said that he would be with us in a minute. He checked out a table and then informed us that there was no tables free, whereas we could see two free tables. He didn't even apologize. He obviously wanted to go home early.
