Authentic Spanish food, served by polite and efficient staff. We always have our office nights out here and it's just the best.

A super restaurant that is more casual inside than it looks outside. The staff were really friendly and engaging and the food was very well priced. Perfect for a light lunch or a boozy dinner with friends!

This is a Spanish style restaurant that makes good honest food from fresh ingredients. Particularly good fresh fish. It is family owned - not a chain, which is a rare treat in Southampton, and this shows in the care that is taken with the food, the atmosphere and the customers. The staff are mostly from Spanish speaking countries, and mostly... More

La regata provided a great welcome, warm, friendly atmosphere and brilliant food. If you can't be in Spain, this is the next best thing. We had a wonderful night.

Ive been here many many times and the food is always superb, Tapas to die for. The staff are very friendly, even when exceptionally busy and the Owner/Manager Jamie treats you like an old friend. Nothing is too much for them. If you like Tapas or even a great steak you have to try this place.Its simply Fantastic

Heard good things from friends about La Regata before I visited and they weren't wrong! This is a wonderfully authentic tapas restaurant - it really is like a piece of Spain in the middle of Southampton. A very warm welcome, excellent service and most of all the food is superb. Also very impressed with wine list. I would return in... More
