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

Had a lovely evening here last week with a group of about 25 delegates to a conference from all over Europe. Food was great, service great and lovely atmosphere, thanks

Visited here for a family Fathers Day Lunch. A nice warm welcome, good ambience and interesting menu greeted us. Our initial order of drinks was swiftly delivered. A request that I always make of ice and lemon with my mineral water was also delivered; most restaurants fail to do this even after repeated requests. From such a good start things... More

Very tasty French dishes, good service, good value. Would have liked a Café Gourmand to finish but had to settle for coffee on its own. Less calories so all is not lost.

Have visited this restaurant many times and it has become a firm lunch time favourite. Menu is always varied, beautiful french style bread and service is excellent. Butternut squash or mushroom risotto is to die for ! French coffee is wonderful There is a little seating outside cafe style that over looks the cathedral park Thank you !

Myself and 4 friends popped in here on the off chance of a table on a bank holiday Sunday lunchtime. Fitted us in and even better we had a round table. Good selection of food including veggie choices, sweets were delicious. Staff were friendly and we would definitely return

We were wondering around Winchester looking for somewhere new to try and saw the board outside this La Place offering a 3 course meal for £16. We had a great meal with very good service and would recommend it to anyone looking for French food at good prices.

A second visit yesterday (and quite honestly, I don't know why it isn't well into double figures!) but spontaneous lunch with my son. Walk-ins, given a lovely window table for two, and excellent service. I knew what I wanted to order - the charcuterie a la plaque - I am sure the review will give a link to a previous... More
