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

We prebooked a table for a birthday but when we arrived at the Fat Fig the waitress wasn't interested in showing us to a table and the table wasn't laid. This should have been a warning! Whilst the food (when it arrives)is reasonably good the waitress's level of competence is diabolical to say the very least. Drinks for our party... More

I have only ordered room Fat Fig but the food from there is simply great. I always get the Lamb which has been cooked all day, it also comes with salad and potatoes and it's delicious!

My boyfriend and I decided to try this restaurant, with high hopes, as it looked like a genuine Greek restaurant. The food was ok, but what spoiled the evening was the waitress. She constantly flirted with my boyfriend, completely ignoring my meal, and brought him our "special surprises", ignoring the fact that there were two people at the table. Her... More

I had great hopes for this restaurant, as there are few truly authentic restaurants (apart from British) in Southampton. The place itself is nice - a cozy and bright space. There were a few tables occupied apart from ours. My biggest criticism would be the service - there was only one person to manage all the tables. This would have... More

We had olives and hummus to start. lovely homemade hummus. I had the mixed grill type dish (pork chicken and sausages with salad and new potatoes) and my partner had the barbequed trout. His fish was exactly barbequed but he did get two fillets of it with a massive plate of salad and potatoes. my homemade sausages were amazing and... More
