Was in Southampton for the football and a family birthday so decided to try the Fat Fig as all were keen on Greek food. Food was fantastic. Freshly prepared with large portion sizes. The service was first class. Great value for money. See you next year!

Popped in for dinner and had the calamari and "Fat Fig Special Mix". Big thick chunks of calamari on a bed of lettuce - simple but exactly what I wanted. The Fat Fig Special Mix was a nice selection of meat, salad and lovely chip shop style chips - very satisfying. I'm looking forward to coming back when I'm hungrier... More

Traveling down from Leicester with my partner and 17 week old daughter we googled 'vegetarian restaurant' - cut a long story... We didn't find it and stumbled upon the Fat Fig. The food is home made, authentic and delicious! To top it off the owners wife comforted our daughter, walking her up and down as we ate. It was the...

Went there with a couple of friends, it was a quiet evening, but it did't stop us from having a good time. Staff was pleasant, the food came out in generous portions- and served with lovely homemade chips. The cost of the evening was surprisingly cheap for the quality we received. Would definitely recommend.

Used to go to the Fat Fig some years ago when it was run by a rather melancholy man ( I liked him but aware he was not everyone's cup of tea). Stopped going as they gradually cut down the number of authentic Greek dishes they served e.g. stuffed vine leaves. Heard recently that it had changed hands and as... More

I go here a lot, I'm completely obsessed with the tzatziki, I won't eat it from anywhere else! Atmosphere is cosy, and the staff are friendly.

Friend had booked 4 of us in for 8pm on a Saturday. First impressions are that it is 'cosy'. Food was very good indeed, had the Marinated Chicken Souvlaki, the Sheftalies (spiced Pork sausage - yum, very nice), whilst friend had the mixed Souvlakia (Pork, Chicken & Sheftalie). Unfortunately the last Moussaka had gone to the birthday girl behind us... More

I took 22 people here on a Saturday night as part of a social group night. From start to finish the service was brilliant, we were there from 8 and they were still serving us at 12.30 and nothing was too much trouble for them. We all had the Mezze, and lost count of the many dishes served between the... More
