Been here already 4 times and will certainly come back. Lamb meat is delicious and perfectly cooked (can't miss the lamb shoulder!), dips with pita very good, the side salades and potatoes are incredibly tasty! Portions are rich, ingredients genuine and dishes freshly prepared in the open cuisine. The service is friendly, a part from a slightly rude welcome once.... More

I came to this cute little restaurant in Bedford place this weekend for a catch up dinner with a friend. I was amazed to see so much authentic greek food on the menu having been to Greece and not found the same food in England! We had pitta, dips, falafel, greek salad and a Y-something (can't remember the name- but... More

I've been coming to this place on and off for many years. Originally called Mastouras, was run in mid noughties by a very charismatic chap. Food excellent and good atmosphere. Sold late Noughties to Spiros who was not everyones cup of tea. He changed the name to Fat Fig. I liked him but he had many 'Off Days' when he... More

I have to eat here at least once a week... The service and food is exceptional and value for money is unbelievable. Its brilliant that the kitchen is open and you can see your food being freshly prepared. If eating in Bedford Place then there is only one restaurant to visit.... The Fat Fig :-)

We visited this restaurant on a brief few hours in Southampton, in May, and stumbled across it, as I knew that Bedford Place has various independent eateries. I did not know anything about this restaurant before we happened upon it that evening, but the TripAdvisor rating that was displayed there looked promising! On entering the premises, my first thought was... More

We were looking for somewhere interesting for dinner in Southampton and we wanted to avoid the the very commercial restaurants on the seafront. We chose the Fat Fig as we thought it looked rather authentic and unpretentious. From the start we found the friendly young waiter helpful and polite. He answered all our questions about the dishes with knowledge and... More

We have been staunch supporters of the fat fig for several years, having always experienced great tasting and great value food. Last night was no exception, but with an extended menu (the original menu had been the same since we started going) came more options to choose from. All of the great favourites remain (the kleftiko and the skorthalia for... More
