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.

Excellent food - normally very good service.

I would have given this restaurant a "5" but last time we ate there we had a new waitress and things were a bit muddly. On being told that our first choice of starter was no longer on the menu, we both chose another starter and she got mine wrong. However they were very about their error and did... read more

Took my parents to Truffles for the first time ever on Sunday and we had the set Mothers Day lunch. Very disappointed to be seated in the dingy and rather scruffy area nearest to the toilets & kitchen but didn't ask to be moved as we assumed all the other tables on the upper level were booked - many of...

Once again a very pleasant evening at Truffles, but not fantastic. For such a nice restaurant it is a shame they do not have more experienced front of house staff, the two girls 'flitted' about the place without any air of purpose and I think they would definately benefit from having a uniform. The food was, however, delicious as usual... More

Ordered snails and mussels but they didn't have any! (Tesco round the corner does). Confi duck was roast duck. Then they tried to give us desert when we hadn't ordered it. Only item on the menu was the wine and that was shiraz not merlot as ordered!! Not impressed overall.

I last visited this restaurant in the late '90s and it was excellent then. I booked for a party of six for last Friday and can honestly say that we were all delighted with the food and the service. I don't know if the present chef is the same as on my last visit ( he didn't appear this time)... More

Celebrated my Wedding Anniversary here with two family members. Great food, all well presented and cooked. The one young lady waiting on our table was delightful and knowledgeable. The restaurant was initially a little cold but soon warmed up. The cost was quite acceptable and once again the food and staff were excellent. My only complaint, would be that the... More

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...
