La Place to be

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!

We happened on this place after a visit to the Cathedral and we were well rewarded. We enjoyed a Caesar Salad and a Smoked Haddock Risotto. Both benefitted from very good ingredients and excellent execution. The Smoked Haddock Risotto with a poached egg was faultless. We really did not need anything else but decided on sharing a Rigodon!

The food here was excellent on both our visits when in Winchester recently The set menu (Mon to Thurs) was very good value, as was the a la carte at the weekend. The staff were very helpful and friendly , and the atmosphere in the restaurant lively without being intrusive.

Really enjoyable meal, cooked with super skill. Nice atmosphere with mixture of visitors and locals (inc eccentrics!). Lovely view across to the Cathedral. Fair price for great quality.

Went for lunch with my family and was so pleased with choice of food on the menu. We all had the beef which was so tender and the rest of dish was authentic French cuisine. The brioche dessert was so tasty and my husbands cheese board which was served with bread looked first class. My son had the chocolate plate... More

My previous review of Froggies, a restaurant my wife and I have always liked, was far from complimentary because of pretty awful service. This time we went for lunch without booking. A gracious welcome. Instant attention from three members of staff. Food delicious and wine reasonably priced. You are forgiven, and thank you for enhancing our day.

The menu offered a great choice, our dinner was delicious and the service was good. My parents recommended the restaurant and we travelled 60 miles to enjoy our evening there
