Truffles Restaurant Francais Fareham has been serving French cuisine for the past 26 years. The restaurant is located in the older part of Fareham and is a listed building with bundles of character. Inside, the lovely French inspired decor, soothing warm colours and soft candlelight set the mood with starched white table cloths and background music sets the tone for a perfect evening. Also, for your comfort, Truffles is fully air-conditioned. The menu changes with the seasons but each day the Head Chef Dallas Rossie, offers market-inspired specials to add variety and surprise for our legion of regular customers.

One of Fareham's best places to eat

I've eaten here many times over the years, usually on ladies night. The food is to a high standard, but when busy the service can be slow.

Me and my friend booked to go for a meal at Truffles for the 2nd Feb at 7pm - the booking was confirmed (and we gave an email and tel contact) and when we arrived last night they where not even open - honestly I can't even believe that they were closed its ridiculous. We arrived just before 7 and... More

When we arrived most of the tables were not even laid up. We were crammed in at the back. The service was inept and the food poor. The fish fillets were full of bones and the vegetables tired to the point of exhaustion. We skipped the dessert. We had to pay in cash as the card machine was broken -... More

We booked a table of 4 for my wife and her sisters birthday for Saturday night. Throughout the time we were there, only two tables were being covered, ourselves and a party of seven. This seemed unusual for a saturday and I kept looking over my shoulder for the tumbleweed to roll through! For our starters, three had mussels in... More

When we arrived, at Eight on a Saturday, Two weeks before Christmas, we found a half empty restaurant, with just a table of Eight, a table of Two, and us. This did not concern us, as we had had a...

Booked a Christmas party meal for 14 people last Saturday and we had a wonderful time. The 2 servers were quite young, one in particular was quite nervous, but they couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome and looked after. The food was excellent as always, we had a variety of meals off the menu and they were all... More

Booked on line for our office Christmas Meal and received an acknowledgement. We had selected our choices from the Christmas Lunch Menu online although we were not required to advise the restaurant in advance. On arrival, no table was available for us so the waiter pulled some apart. We were handed a menu which we noted differed from that on... More

As per a previous review, I booked this table with plenty of notice for a works night out. Despite the Head Chef making a comment on social media about wanting my contact details I have yet to hear anything. This just demonstrates how bad the service is at Truffles Fareham
