We had a dinner for two which was absolutely superb. The staff were efficient, friendly and very attentive. The food was amazing. The only slight problem was that the portions were very large!! Beautifully cooked and presented food in a restaurant with a really great atmosphere. We'd been meaning to go for a while but will not hesitate in going... More

We booked our Christmas meal here and unfortunately it was a bit of a disaster which is a shame as on previous occasions it has been good. We had a vegan in our party and we confirmed beforehand to ensure that this would be fine to cater for. However on the night they had forgotten and that meant a lettuce... More

Booked for a Sunday evening before Christmas. Excellent service and menu. Could not fault a thing. Forget the brand image thing and try here instead.

We found ourselves in Winchester just before Christmas at lunch time. Hadn't booked anywhere and all the likely looking places seemed very busy with pre Christmas parties. However La Place Bistro seemed a good place to try and find a table for two. Despite the place being apparently full they found us a table, and we expected to have to... More

We have eaten here often, great for lunch or dinner and for families or couples/groups. Management are French but not all staff are, sadly. Short on beers but a fine wine list and delicious food. Food is very much countryside French. We'll go back often too.

Six mature ladies who were all at school together meet for their Christmas lunch get-together. We were upstairs at a round table, perfect size so we could all speak to each other. Some of the party are veggies, and there was choice. The smoked haddock with orzo pasta was creamy, the turkey dinners looked very good, the goats cheese tart... More

Had lunch here today and was dissappointed by the experience as were the others in our group. The food tasted OK, but expected betterfor the prices. £8.50 for a cheese toasty anyone. The problem lay in the size of the portions. Not nearly anywhere near big enough to feed you. I left hungry. So much so we called into a... More

Lovely imaginative menu with beautifully cooked well presented food, and extremely friendly attentive service. Different from other restaurants in the city, and would thoroughly recommend it. We had delicious belly of pork which melted in the mouth served with bacon and potato mash and sauteed lentils, and sea bream with seafood and potato chowder. Desserts were also scrumptious. The food... More

Tried La Place's Beaujolais menu recently (2 courses plus glass of wine for £20), starting with the ham terrine, which was good, if a little on the lean side. The main course I chose was the boeuf bourguignon. The only other main came with new potatoes, but the boeuf just read "potatoes", so I asked if it would be ok... More

So pleased we chose this place in passing for a quiet meal. Prompt friendly service and an enticing menu. The food was beautifully cooked, well presented and very enjoyable. It's not cheap, but at the same time its only a little bit more expensive than average prices, and the quality is definitely well above average, so absolutely worth it. Pleasant... More
