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.

Busy and buzzing downstairs, quiet and comfortable upstairs, the food was excellent, and the service adequate. Service enthusiasm needs to be supported by some staff training but that is easily fixed. Fresh tomato soup and John Dore grilled too perfection, washed down with a cheeky Pinot Grigiot rose.

We had heard several good reviews about La Place and when one cold March evening I couldn't be bothered cooking we decided to try it. It was a disappointment for me, I am afraid. We went for their daily menu which was fairly good value but not as good as I would have done at home and although it was... More

Woke up fancying a Sunday roast and a nice bottle of red wine and La Place certainly didn't disappoint!! We got there early and had a table in the window, staff were very friendly and attentive making sure we both got our beef how we liked it! The wine was perfect and meant I got exactly what I woke up... More

We live a stones throw from La Place and aren't we lucky! It truly is a unique atmosphere, Seb and Gaël are so accommodating and go above and beyond to give a fantastic service. The food is fab, I had a goats cheese soufflé this evening and it was amazing. Well worth visiting, either for a relaxing glass of wine... More

Lovely building in pleasant location with a good atmosphere. Friendly greeting and good menu choices. Let down slightly by service (main waitress no charisma). Steaks were slightly better than mediocre puddings excellent.

Visited with group of friends on a weekend break in Winchester, love the casual informal atmosphere and willingness of friendly staff to accommodate our group moving chairs to fit us in. Food very good and great fun place to be, so much so that we ate there on three separate occasions, which says everything. Great place, will return when next... More

Once again, Seb, Gaël and the team surpassed themselves in the quality of food and the service. Such a marvellous retreat hidden in the back streets of Winchester. We can't recommend the new menu enough. Bravo!
