A taste of France without the ferry! We've brought the continent to you at Gunwharf Quays in Portsmouth Harbour. Soak up the sea air and enjoy some classic French fare. There's a large seating areas for big groups and small spaces simply perfect for that romantic get together. On warmer days you have to take advantage of the fabulous outdoor dining areas... a glass of Sauvignon Blanc and some sunshine is just the way to while away the day.
