Authentic and delicious

I visited La Baronia with my godparents and their friends as part of an 'around the world' series of meals out - we arrived at half 7 and stayed for around three hours!

We visit regularly and this place doesn't disappoint, sometimes the service is a bit slow if they are really busy, be prepared to wait a little and sit back and enjoy a margarita or two, the food is worth the wait

We stumbled across this place whilst on route to another restaurant. This was the best fine ever! The food was amazing! The service was brilliant! The experience, second to none! This will be our go to place for Mexican food from now on.

We wanted something a bit different and Portswood has quite a lot of food options so we thought we would try Mexican for a change. We were lucky to get a table for two without booking as there were some large groups with reservations. The staff were very friendly and our food order arrived swiftly. The menu was interesting and... More

La Baronia has never failed in hosting a good night of food and entertainment. Great detail in there decor for the restaurant and bar, easy to find by car with its hanging flowers and outside seating. Meals that come out at the same time when the group is big. A menu that is interesting as it covers many regions of... More

Southampton is something of a desert (as in arid rather than a pudding) for restaurants and La Baronia just goes to show how mediocrity is thriving in the city. Took our son and his girlfriend for supper and left bemused by the experience - how anyone could give this restaurant 5 stars defies belief. On a positive note, the place... More

I've done a couple of reviews of LA Baronial but feel compelled to add to the list every now and then when I have an exceptional evening. We have just returned from a Monday night visit where we both had outstanding food, great service, personal attention from the owner/chef to help with allergies and generous portions. Do yourself a favour... More

We came here to eat at 9pm after booking. Our table wasn't ready so we waited at the bar. As we waited, it eventually got a lot louder (table next to us was a mixed hen and stag do, VERY loud/screaming/rude language) and no one said anything which was disappointing. They ruined our meal, we could barely hear each other... More

This is one of my favourite restsurants. The food is freshly prepared and the atmosphere is really fun. The food is great value for money and the service is excellent. I would highly recommend this. If you are catering for a special occasion they are great at catering for this as well.

Heard good things about the resturant and generally enjoy mexican food. Went with a friend and we both had the Chilli Beef Chimichanga. We both thought the dish very tasty. Also tried some Guacamole as a benchmark....this was also spot on. The atmosphere and character of the place is very inviting with lots of little corners to sit and enjoy... More
