I booked a table for 18 which was a hassle free experience. The service and food was excellent. No-one in the party had to wait for their meal. Will return again

The wife and I travelled down to Southampton from NW London meet a business collegue for lunch. He suggested Ceno and we had no idea what to expect. First sight wasn't very encouraging - exterior seemed somewhat run down, but inside was clean and very spacious in the dining area. Staff very friendly so made to feel welcome straight away.... More

Comfortable seating, light and airy, and contemporary decor. Lots of choices on the menu for all palates. Delicious vegetarian selections including homemade veggie burgers and lots of good vegetable sides. Fried food is a little heavy for some palates. Would definitely be a neighborhood favorite.

Went for the first time on a night out with 'the girls' - nice atmosphere, great service, great menu and nice food. Good wine menu as well. Probably best for special occasions as it is a bit pricey - but worth it. Will be booking again.

The Ceno (from coena - Latin for supper) is a restaurant with a soft atmosphere and food of reasonable quality but expect to pay more than the norm. Nice position for outdoor eating in warm weather

The food here can be very good - on the rare occasion I had a problem the management was very quick to sort out the issue- which was a cold meal. The large bar area makes this a good place to sit and have a drink and the outside decking is a pleasure on a warm summers evening after work.
