Quick trip to France without crossing the channel!

The food was very good and the staff were all French, I believe. We were a party of four- the restaurant was quite crowded and noisy on a Friday night. It was a meal worthy of a good bistro and would definitely go again.

Very obliging staff found us a table, though we hadn't booked. This is clearly an extremely popular restaurant. I was a bit worried because I generally don't like French food but there was so much choice and our lunch was absolutely delicious. Not the cheapest but generous servings beautifully presented by polite and friendly staff. This is a true example... More

We found ourselves in Romsey with our son and wanted to have lunch. We tried three pubs in the town and none of them served food - almost unbelievable these days. We came across La Parisienne and went in. It was very busy but the guy we saw, whose name was Luc, went to a lot of trouble to find... More

We, a party of six, were greeted and seated very efficiently and menus were handed out with big smiles by courteous waitresses . We were given plenty of time to make our choices and our orders were taken without problems. I must say I thought that the menu choice was excessive. My starter, the Onion Tart, was not what I...

We love this adorable restaurant, it really feels like you have stumbled upon a bistro in a back street of Paris. The staff are all rushing around talking in French to each other. The tables in the restaurant have proper linen on the table and the finishing touches to the table feel authentic ie the little salt, pepper and mustard... More

Went there for my birthday meal which included a FANTASTIC steak and french fries main course. It was delicious and could have eaten it again! Very busy both in the bar area and the restaurant but service was good considering how busy they were (Thursday evening). I paid a visit to the ladies loo and the aroma of grilled steak... More

This is a packed, noisy place. Don't go there if you wish for quiet conversation. The menu is quite good though. The portions are a little on the large side for my taste. The service is good and attentive and they have a reasonable wine list. My onion tart was really nice but the confit of duck was really strange.... More
