A pleasant lunch

Good service and good food. Not spectacular, but hard to fault. I had the pepper soup which was very good, much better than the plaice to follow (too much butter). Pork medallions tasty but I wanted loads more veg Great service !

I have eaten here a few times now and each meal has been delicious. I love french cuisine and La Place offers only the best. Steak frites is one of my personal favourites and creme brulee definitely follows any main. I love the atmosphere in here, the staff are always very attentive and friendly. Great wine selection and a very... More

We have been to La Place a few times. The food is good quality bistro - not too fancy but well prepared ... a bit like a very good Cafe Rouge. Prices are reasonable too. I recommend it.

This is a largely French restaurant, pictures of France on the walls and escargots on the menu. It is well situated in the centre of Winchester opposite one of the museums and there are some tables outside which are ideal for a warm evening.

This is a really good restaurant serving French-style food. The atmosphere is friendly but unobtrusive and you get the service and the intimacy you might want on a dinner date. The food is very well prepared and presented and the wine list is also good. Top marks!

Found through trip advisor when we arrived late on a Friday night. In the old centre of town. We had a premier cru Chassagne Montrachet for £50. Most expensive of a good wine list, and utterly delicious and real value for money. Good goats cheese salad starters. Veggie stuffed peppers were outstanding, really tasty. My sea bream with seafood stuffed... More

Spent many happy times here. Always friendly, with a great atmosphere. Food and hospitality always good. Highly recommend it. Set in the busy square right by the cathedral, a lovely setting.

We sat outside La Place in the sunshine on Saturday, for lunch. Was a lovely spot opposite the cathedral. The food was perfect and the service impeccable. This place is simple and understated - and very relaxing. You will never feel rushed. Thank you.

The staff are great- always friendly and welcoming, the food is consistently good and in a perfect location. The wine list, the atmosphere, the cosy bar or formal restaurant are all perfect.
