“A Lovely Place for Lunch with Friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

My wife and I and our friends from England who we were visiting took us to Winchester for the day. Looking for a nice place for lunch we found La Place Bistro & Froggies Bar. Outside it's lovely to sit have a drink or a meal, inside very quaint with a wonderful bar area and another side with tables.
We had the Duck Salad and the Goat Cheese salads and how spectacular they were. The service was wonderful, the food was wonderful and it's just so charming and relaxing.
If you are ever in Winchester go and enjoy yourselves with good food, drink and service.

“Best ratatouille I've ever had...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

...and it wasn't even my dish! Would kill to have the recipe for the lamb roullade and ratatouille. Maybe overpriced for some, but worth every penny to enjoy this lunch surprise! Tasted more like an evening meal...my boyfriend wishes I hadn't enjoyed his meal this much! The hamburger/frites that I ordered was every bit as tasty!

“Lovely relaxing lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

Popped in here for lunch to catch up with a friend

Food was good rather than amazing, and some of the choices looked a tad pricey. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch though; had a lovely table in window. Service could have been a bit more attentive considering we arrived early but staff very polite & helpful when they did attend.

“Try the restaurant upstairs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

We have been here many times right back to the days when it was 69 the square. It's probably at its best now and not bad value. Thoroughly recommend the steak hache it makes a change eating decent well prepared steak. A bit of an attraction for celebrates we always spot someone there. Staff make an effort. One of the better locations for Winchester, there are lots to chose from but give this a go, it's right by the cathedral too.

“Over priced for what one gets”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Again this place is a bit of a 'rip-off' like so many restaurants in Winchester . seem to cater for tourists who are loaded rather than locals who just want a decent feed at a reasonable price
