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.

We booked a meal here as it was our 30th wedding anniversary and needed a change from the normal gastro pubs. Even though it was a Monday evening, we booked as you never know how busy places can get. There was a group of 6 I think, diners and another group of 4 when we entered and that was how... More

See the review below titled. "better service at truckstop" We were the couple opposite...." Overall our food was OK. It is the service that lets this down. The owner rang to confirmwe were still going and asked us to be prompt for our 7:30 booking as he had a busy evening and wanted to ensure that all guests had a... More

Having been to this restaurant previously my friend and I were looking forward to going back, but what a disappointment. We ordered the cod starter which was so overpowered with citrus you could not taste anything else, my second course was the CRISP belly pork, which was as rubbery as an elastic band. The waitress asked us how our meals... More

We are sorry to hear that you were not happy with some of the dishes ordered. The cod is actually cooked in lime and oil which is why it will have a citrus taste. The pork belly is our number one seller and everyone who I speak to at the end of the evening says how nice the pork was.... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant, based on the favourable reviews on Tripadvisor. The restaurant can best be described as intimate, an ungenerous person might describe it as cramped. There were a number of largish parties in that evening and the atmosphere was certainly convivial, helped by the genial host. We enjoyed our meal, although some fingers of... More

It was my partners birthday so thought I would take her out to Truffles, based on the number of good reviews and the fact it holds a high rank in position on Tripadvisor. Booked the table for 7:30pm and we arrived a little late at 7:45pm. We had called ahead to advise that we would be late....no problem. We were... More

I find it very insulting stating that there is better service at a roadside cafe. Their booking was for 7.30, they phoned to say that they would be 10 minutes late and actually arrived at 7.55 which was 25 minutes late. We note in our diary what time people arrive so that we can ensure that everything is served according... More

I visited on a quiet Monday evening with my parents for the first time and we were all impressed with the food and the service. The owner who served us was very friendly. The food were pretty good. We ordered mussels, snails and mushrooms in garlic cream sauce for appetisers. We had plenty of mussels, which was great considering the... More

Booked a table here for our 17th wedding anniversary, coinciding with my husband's last day in the Royal Navy, so wanted it to be really special. It really didn't disappoint. All the staff were just lovely, the owner was very friendly and recommended menu choices that were delicious. The overall experience was exactly what I would have wished for. Highly... More

I have been to this restaurant a number of times and always given 5stars but this time we both felt let down. It started with the drinks having decided not to have wine I asked for the cider but they returned to say they had none. I asked for bitter and got a glass of warm very tin tasting liquid... More
