La Regata is a great little restaurant opposite the town quay. From the moment you walk in you feel like you are in Spain. It is a little tight for space on some tables but the food is great. I would recommend the Calamari to anyone. It's a top tapas bar which won't break the bank and the staff are... More

The only thing I can say is the started cheese was ok. The meat balls looked a week old. The goats cheese tasted off. The chorizo was under cooked and couldn't eat it. I was gutted because I heard some good things about the place. I even had to go for a pudding with was vile. Very gutted. Never again.

Amazing tapas dishes. Advice is to try the different ones you might not have had before. Great with a bottle of Rioja or 3

This restaurant is wonderful. I was recommended it by colleagues and so glad I went. The food is fresh and plentiful and the prices reasonable. The staff are really friendly and will explain the menu if needs be. This is one of the best restaurants in Southampton and I will continue to visit for years to come.

I have eaten here once before, for lunch, so it was nice to go back for dinner. I chose Concha Mediterranea to start which was delicious, and my friend had Agucat con Gambas. We then both had their Dover Sole Meuniere, which they kindly filleted for me. It was amazing! The service and atmosphere were great too. I'll be back... More

I sometimes find Tripadvisor s little miss leading. La Regata should be at the the top of Southampton's restaurant rankings. I've eaten in most of the restaurant's in Southampton & I have to be honest La Regata beats most of them hands down. Look at the facts. It's a family run restaurant using fresh local produce. Everything is cooked from... More

For main course we both chose from lemon sole from the specials board. The fish was exquisite , but was let down by the... More

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
