Staff are the stars here !

Always a very warm welcome from the staff, the wines and spirits are international, but given local competitors, more effort on local beers might prove a winner. That said.....it is a French based restaurant / Bar !! The food is good but probably over priced for what comes out....again no... read more

Popped in as place down the road had a half hour wait for coffee and a bite to eat! Nice interior, warm welcome. Took a while to get our food but the coffees came early. Nice and cosy, quite French, so we willed away the time as you would in Paris. And why not, it was cold outside? Had a... More

Food fine in La Place. Wait between courses very long though. Sat down at 12.30pm - left at 3.45pm! Menu fine. Quite expensive especially for those on our group who bought extra drinks. Good atmosphere - plenty of customers.

Re-visited for lunch after some years, when we were in Winchester for Christmas shopping. Winchester was crowded and I suspect that if we hadn't been in quite early, not very long after 12, we mightn't have found anywhere half decent for lunch without reservations. The Bistro was certainly packed by the time we left. It's in a pleasant little square... More

I have never been to La Place before and thought I would give it a go with my friend and my two daughters. I was disappointed with the coffee. It was very bitter and didn't have a very good after taste. Lovely place, lovely staff just a shame about the coffee and with as much competition as they have that... More

We had an evening table booked for 8pm on a Thursday. initially we were a little concerned as the restaurant did not look busy. A dish we both would have had from the menu card in the restaurants window when asked was not on the menu.Thankfully the courses we did have were really good and all cooked to order. To... More
