We took 2 friends here for dinner. Not our first choice, but managed to get a table ok over the bank holiday. In fact there was quite a few empty tables. Menu for me and our friends was good, my husband disagreed. He really wasn't impressed. I had warm goats cheese tart to start, loved it. Then sea bass fillets... More

We enjoyed a nice meal here despite the kitchen not preparing a steak medium well but medium rare. I am not sure how flexible the kitchen is because they could also not accommodate a special salad request. Perhaps if you have dietary specifications call ahead. The steak was taken off our bill which was appreciated (and the right thing to... More

Had lunch here yesterday with two friends. The place was extremely busy for a Monday lunch time - a good sign. I had the smoked haddock risoni, and it was excellent. There was very good quality wine by the glass. Service was friendly, and the atmosphere nicely buzzy.

Popped in for dinner on a relatively quiet Monday night. Varied menu and food quality was very good. Service was exceptionally good and overall very good value. Will definitely use again.

We ate here recently and had a wonderful meal. I had the prawn and avocado starter which was superb not freezing cold so you could taste the prawns and the avocado fully. Followed by confit of duck which was cooked perfectly falling off the bone (confit of duck is a well cooked dish). Nice reasonably priced wine too and friendly... More

We went to Froggies as a large group and we were very well looked after. There was no rush for us to be seated and we enjoyed a leisurely start to the evening in the bar. We sat upstairs which was warm but not too busy. The service was very good and the food delicious. We have already booked to... More

I have been meaning to try this restaurant for a while, but friends insisted on the other more 'celebrity' eateries in Winchester. But they should have listened to me, as this is by far one of the best meals I have had, and the venue & staff were also better than the other places. We arrived on spec on a... More

I've only ever been here for small plates and light bites but the food has always been good. As you might expect from a French restaurant, the wine list is good and has great ambience.

We visited La Place in early 2013 and the meal we had was terrible, so called prawn pasta was the most awful pasta we had ever been served, very few little hard shrimps in a cream sauce with piles of pasta. We did actually write to the restaurant to complain but have not yet received a reply. We did not... More
