Excellent and very patient service!

I visited Grande Cafe in July 2013. We were a party of 8 enjoying a Hen Night. We were greeted and then shown to a VIP area (which had been previously arranged) and we were served with 2 welcome drinks. These were very refreshing. The only problem was, our VIP area was also the same area used by... read more

We recent dined at the Grand Cafe Southampton. It is probably the best restaurant and bar in the city.The high ceilings, rich art decor and elegant swishness, exudes an ambiance that lends a sense of occasion to the meal. We found the menu varied, the food excellent and prices reasonable. We can't wait to find an excuse to return again.... More

Its not the first time i've been to grand cafe and it won't be the last. Top marks to the waiters for an unfloundering display of professional, attentive care - James in particular. It would be nice if vegetarians could be taken seriously, that is the only reason i am not able to award full points on the food front.... More

I went for a hen party and there was 23 of us! The whole experience was first class. No wait at the bar, the table was ready (and we could go in before hand an decorate the area), the food came out quickly and was absolutely delicious! The staff could not have been more helpful and made sure that we... More

I visited with a group of ladies for a hen do, with a table booking for 8pm. I arrived early so enjoyed a delicious margarita-worth going back just for that! When we were seated at our table, we found we were quiet tightly packed in. This made it tricky to get to the bar to buy our own drinks. We'd... More

The older style building really sets itself well, with beautiful chandeliers, lots of lighting and seating areas. Very vintgage chic. I was particulaly impressed with... More

I booked this venue for a surprise 60th birthday party and the restaurant could not be accommodating. All of the staff I spoke to both on the night and during the planning stages were excellent. We were well looked after throughout the evening and the food was good. Great atmosphere and although we had a 5 year old child with... More

...Just held a business / charity dinner at this venue and am delighted to recommend the Grand Cafe unreservedly as the finest venue in the city for dining and entertaining. I really do not believe you can find better in all of Southampton. The venue itself is beautiful... majestic grand Victorian splendour enhanced with stylish contemporary decor; as soon as... More

My husband and I took my parents to the Grand Cafe as a thank you for looking after our first child ALOT more than was anticipated in the first few months. I had booked the table a couple of weeks in advance and had arranged to drop some flowers and wine there earlier in the day to 'present' to my... More
