I have been to La Regata a few times now and must say the food is absolutely fantastic, authentic and amazingly tasty surrounded by a beautiful and typical decor. It feels like being on a getaway in the heart of Spain. Ellen, our waitress, is very nice, funny and just generally helps spreading that good atmosphere that reigns at La... More

Have visited Southampton many times but have always walked past this tapas bar. Visited last night,hadn't booked but we managed to get a table as long as we could vacate by 8 pm- no problem. Food was excellent,I think we ordered too much really and couldn't be tempted by desserts. Stuck to the tapas menu and had a couple of... More

When we arrived we were shown to our booked table where we were given our menus, at this point the waiter disappeared before we could even order drink. Shortly after this the waitress looked me up and down with an unapprovingly look. Myself and my boyfriend, both young professionals were treated like children and were mocked when pronouncing a dish... More

My wife and I have over the years eaten with friends, or I have taken business colleagues to La Regata. The ambiance, the food and the service are of the highest quality. One of my well traveled friends joined me for lunch, where we had the Dover sole my friend remarked that having traveled around the world, this was one... More

Delicious spanish food, good ambience, clean, and friendly staff! From starters to desserts- all good! My favourite is the saefood paella. And for the dessert- the Tarta Fantastica is to die for.

My wife and I ate here on 22nd June 2016, staying at The Pig in the Wall and the menu not being quite to our fancy and the Grand Harbour just dirty and poor service. We walked in and although very busy because it was the last night before renovations, we were happy to sit at the bar and had... More

Visited here with my boyfriend, I've been here twice before but wanted to show my boyfriend how amazing the food was in this restaurant. Very friendly service, the waitress was very helpful and accommodating. The menu was massive, so much choice for tapas. We had 6 tapas between 2 of us, which in hindsight may have been a tad too...

Dinner with 20 colleagues with a predefined tapas menu composed by the restaurant. Food was great with a mixed assortment that felt genuine and well prepared. Only remark is the noise levels that virtually made it impossible to have a conversation, so some room for imp on dining environment. Otherwise great service and friendly staff. Recommended!
