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.

Booked for our wedding anniversary, as this used to be an excellent restaurant under the old management. It was a Saturday evening and we arrived at 8pm to an empty restaurant which remained so until a table of 6 arrived at 9pm, and that was the total number of diners in the restaurant. The food was of mixed quality, but... More

As a french, I was surprised by the quality of the food. Mussels was cooked correctly with the right creme Duck and pigeon were also really good We drunk a cotes du Rhône of 2013, a Red wine too young but ok for drinking with duck. I give a bad point for the bread that was coming directly from freezer... More

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 not... 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
