Description: 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.

Spending as much time in France as possible during the summer months, come the winter we are in need of a little French fix. This is a small restaurant and easily missed if you don't know where it is. First impressions are that the decor is a little basic and it would be nice to see maybe some more references... More

My friend and I popped in, last minute on a Monday evening. As soon as we were in the door we knew it was a good choice. The menu had enough choice, but not so vast it was likely to effect the quality of the preparation. The food was delicious, especially the homemade bread. Decent wine list. I'd recommend the...

We arrived at truffles at the given time of 7pm to find it locked, after a few minutes the waitress unlocked the door as we entered we noticed it was very cold inside, I... More

We went to Truffles for the first time and chose New Years Eve to try it out. We were not disappointed the evening was most enjoyable, the food particularly the fillet beef was fantastic. We were very well looked after and as the restaurant was full there was a good atmosphere, although some background music would have been appreciated by... More

All courses were fantastic from start to finish. I was a bit worried about the fish course due to personal preference but... More

Visited with my brother and his wife over the Christmas period. We had booked lunch, and there were only four of us in the restaurant. The food was imaginative, adequate portion size and reasonably priced. The service was excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Parking is available,e at the Lysees car park, about 5 minutes walk away.

Recently ate at Truffles to celebrate our first anniversary, having taken my wife there for the evening of my marriage proposal. The restaurant and staff were still very warm and welcoming. Help was at hand for (brilliant!) wine recommendations which complemented our meal perfectly. Thank you very much for a great occasion. Sorry for not leaving the review sooner. N... More

This was a return visit for us and we were not disappointed. Our starters of Prawn Cocktail and Chicken Liver Pate with Sweet onion chutney were lovely. Our main course of Lamb with steamed vegetables was also very good. The service was friendly and efficient and I would recommend the house wine. We would definitely return

Four of us visited this place a couple of months ago. Heard a fair bit about it so went to see for ourselves. Starters were nothing special.. Pea risotto was ok but the mains were shocking. One steak left and asked for it to be cooked medium but was so tough it could not be eaten so we took it... More

It is so upsetting when we read a bad review from people who said that when asked (by my wife) that they enjoyed the meal. My wife said that she was chatting to them and they also said that they were in the same trade as us. I also cannot understand why it has taken them 2 months before submitting... More

After an amazing christmas meal with friends in 2013, we decided to return again this year. There were 11 of us in total. The service was great, but sadly the food this year was not as good as previously. I had the pate and although it tasted good, there was a thick layer of fat which put me off, my... More
