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.

The restaurant was warm and friendly and the food was excellent. We've visited a number of times and will be going again in the future based on our experience. We went on a Monday because it was a birthday party; it was fairly quiet but still a good atmosphere. We used the £10 vouchers too, so it was even better... More

I was unsure as to whether I should leave a review as I don't normally bother when something has just been adequate. Myself and my wife went on Ladies night (Tuesdays) for our wedding anniversary. On entering we were told by the lone waiter to just sit anywhere we liked on a table for two, so no proper greeting and... More

It was our own fault because we did not properly read the menu displayed outside the restaurant. Our mistake was that we did not realise that only the a la carte menu was available in the evening and that we didn`t leave. We were too embarassed to do that. Our meal was adequate but not of a standard or level... More

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
