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.

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

Me and 13 friends booked here for our Xmas meal. None of us had ever been but had heard good things about this restaurant. The service and the food was top notch. Nothing was too much trouble for them. All of us said that we would be defiantly coming back here.

This is the second time that we have visited Truffles, and we were again very happy with the experience. We arrived at midday on a Saturday, and the service was very responsive. The menu is simple BUT that's a good thing, especially when compared to some restaurants with a menu the size of a telephone directory. Between us, we had... More

I, and 3 friends, had lunch at Truffes today. I have never rated any restaurant 'excellent' because there is always room for improvement, but Truffles is definitely'excellent'. The food is superb and the service cannot be bettered. One of our party is coeliac and we do find it almost impossible to find restaurants in the Fareham area that cater for... More

I have visited this restaurant a number of times but the last time I was disappointed and said so in a review but having just tried it again it was excellent and I have no doubt the problem was a one off. The service is polite, attentive and efficient. The food was very tasty, well cooked and nicely presented and... More

I booked Truffles to celebrate my 60th birthday with 16 close family members. The main reasons for selecting Truffles was the cosy atmosphere and of course the excellent food. If you also add in the friendly service it is almost as though you have been invited round for a meal in a little french cottage and you feel more like... More
