Went there on a Saturday night, when Southampton was crowded with cruise goers for the next day. No reservation and they happily worked a table for 2 despite a packed house. Ordered from a large menu of tapas. We were not disappointed. The dishes came piping hot, fresh, and plenty to eat. Fish, ham, vegetables, a good wine selection, and... More

I can't tell you how many times I have walked/driven past La Regata.. Sunday night was not one of those times Being so soon after Christmas & New Year (and a Sunday) it was quite quiet, we were served drinks at the bar by Ellen - a firery redhead whose slightly dry sense of humour matched up to ours perfectly!...

I went there 2 years ago on a first date, and returned last night (with my other half) and my family, and both times were absolutely fantastic. Amazing food, great customer service, brilliant atmosphere, I would (and I do) recommend it to anyone and everyone!! Thank you for a great night! :)

Been twice now and look forward to a third visit. Food is excellent, there is a good variety of wines and other drinks, and the staff are efficient, friendly and happy to help you choose dishes you're unfamiliar with. We went with some family members who can be a bit picky at times, but they loved it too.
