Dinner for 4

Good food, wine and service. If you sit upstairs lovely view of the Cathedral. I enjoyed my rose wine, crayfish starter and mushroom risotto. All light and refreshing for summer.

We had an excellent dinner at La Place, which has a wonderful outlook overlooking the Museum grounds yet is close to the High Street & the Cathedral. The atmosphere was great, just like a French bistro should be. Service throughout was friendly and attentive but unobtrusive. The food was of a high quality, and the rib-eye steak was particularly good.... More

Dropped in here for a bite to eat whilst shopping with a friend. Chose the goat's cheese and pine nut salad at £9.95. A few salad leaves, cherry tomatoes, 3 very thin pieces of toasted baguette topped with one and a half thin slices of melted goats cheese. No sign of the pine nuts which i had to ask for... More

Went there for lunch today after eyeing it up on here for a while. Staff were very welcoming, very good structure to the menu and good prices. We only went for lunch but it was very good and we will be returning for dinner when we get the chance. Also a very nice wine list ;) Go try for yourself!

Our second visit to this restaurant on a busy Saturday evening - we were not disappointed! First visit was as a couple, but this visit included other family adults. Not an incredibly complex menu, but nicely separated into price groups so that one can choose from a reasonable bistro list or spend more for a la carte special dishes. (Or,... More

I regularly eat here, with friends, for work or simply on my own and always have a great experience. The two Frenchies that run the place are very experienced and great fun and their staff are well trained and create a great atmosphere. Having eaten at all the restaurants and pubs in Winchester I would have to say this is... More

My wife and I went for the set lunch and were not disappointed at all, the food was very well presented sophisticated and extremely tasty. Service was attentive without being over zealous. Overall we enjoyed the experience a lot and would return. The set meal was excellent value and if you visit without prior expectations you will be pleasantly surprised.
