“Great tapas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013 via mobile

A great selection of tapas, all at reasonable prices. Lovely setting, and a good atmosphere during the week.

“Our favourite restaurant in Southampton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

This is our favourite restaurant in Southampton. The staff are always so friendly and it's easy to get their attention if you want to order more tapas during your meal. I've only ever eaten the tapas - which I can't recommend more highly. The desserts are delicious too. We always go with friends - the food is best when shared (so you can try a wider variety of dishes!) the bill always surprises us in being lower than we would have expected. Brilliant range of dishes and so tasty:). If you like Spanish food it's a must.

“Bit of a let down”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Ok, firstly I had a great night due to the company I was with.

Decor is ok inside, not particularly Spanish.

Staff. Man from Seville was chatty & friendly but he knew nothing about the wine and couldn't recommend anything.

Waitress with glasses. If you smile it won't hurt love!

Food. Patatas Bravas was awful. I make it at home and what they served was not authentic.
The meats looked like what you can buy in a platter at your local supermarket. Some of the tapas looked like it was not fresh but frozen. The mushrooms in Stilton was tasty but such an easy dish to throw together.

Best tapas dish were the figs. Lovely.

Would I go back? Yes but not in any rush

“Everything on the menu!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

We went to La Regatta for their tapas as we had eaten there before. It was a celebration for 6 of us so we had everything on the tapas menu!!!! Every dish was delicious - because we all have varied palates every dish was eaten. Washed down with a fabulous Riocca and a couple of bottles of Chablis we all had an amazing night. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was great, We will be back but we will be a bit more conservative next time!
