Our recent trip to Hayling Island was rounded off by a fantastic meal in a lively restaurant that had great atmosphere and great food. We were served by Sophie, who was absolutely brilliant, and by Barry, the manager, who was also excellent. Highly recommended!

The Piraña Bar specialises in seafood. We were greeted very nicely and made most welcome. The food was excellent. The surf and turf was delicious The standard of service from Liz and Carl was very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. This was a special occasion and was made all the more memorable by sharing it here. Thank you... More

A fabulous summers day helped as we sat on the top deck and the views over the habour to the south downs were amazing. I would highly recommend the Fish and Chips. A good sized portion of Fresh fish and proper chunky chips. Service was good as well...We will be back.

Another review previously quoted some visitors as DFLs - Down From London. Sorry, we're DFOs. Down from Oxfordshire. A sailing friend visited recently and told positive stories and with a family event along the coast and a wedding anniversary to celebrate on the way home we decided to divert to what is the very farthest corner of Hayling Island.

Had a fantastic meal at the Piranha Bar with another couple last weekend. This was our first visit based on recommendations from friends. Our friends were certainly were spot on. The food was incredibly fresh, absolutely delicious and well presented. Between us all we tried the lobster (see pic), crab and steak and each was cooked to perfection. Staff were... More

Things seem to be slipping at Piranha Bar. We have eaten here before, but never has the service been so slow or so slipshod. The waitresses seem cheerful but in- experienced, while the Manager's body-language said "I don't want to be here". Items were missed from our order and it took an incredibly long time for anything to arrive. The... More

Title pity much says it all, party of 7 - 15 mins to get a waitress to take our drinks order, 2 starters came out, 1 completely forgotten. We waited over an hour for our main courses, waited another 10 minutes for condiments and that was only after me asking for them again. The manager did apologise after I complained... More

We booked a large table of 22 for a party in the evening and have to say it was brilliant. The location was stunning, the food was perfection (we received all 22 dishes some specials within 5 minutes of eacother), the staff (Rebecca and Rosie) were outstanding they dealt with the constant drinks orders, fussy eaters, special requests, multiple languages...
