Rang up to order food to collect for working lunch and the manager answered. He was very rude and hung up. LOST BUSINESS.

We have tried this restaurant on a few occasions, both eating in and as a takeaway. The first time was eating in, and the staff seemed pleasant and welcoming, and the food was lovely. Tried again as a takeaway, as we don't live far from there, but this was not such a great service, we phoned up to order, and... More

I have been to many different types of resturants. I would say I am a bit of a foodie Fat Fig is a go to for a grest meal. The meat is perfect, food fresh, and staff incredibly attentive. Nicest family runs it. Family / child friendly.

I cannot express how disappointed I was with Fat Fig. I sought out a Greek restaurant as I love Greek food and atmosphere and speak some Greek but this was so disappointing. The food was average - oily salad but well-cooked meat. Not unusual for Greek food I guess. But the service was poor to the point of rudeness. There... More

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
