As always Charlene's service was fantastic! Worth coming here just to see her. Fantastic food and drinks. Watch out for Scott on the bar, he's brilliant especially during 2 for 1. Can't wait to come back.

The cocktails here are good, during happy hour time it's 2for1 in the same cocktail...if you can get served at the bar, we waited for half an hour, was worth it. Every table we came across was dirty however but I'm sure that is because they were busy. All in all cocktail servers were skilled but tables could do with... More

I have been here a few times and had the 2 4 1 deal on cocktails, they seem to me to be very weak and short of alcohol. A couple of times I've eaten there and found the food to be disappointing and also had to complain of overcharging on my bill, twice! When I reported this to their complaints... More

There aren't a huge range of high quality places to eat in Southampton for a place of its size. However Turtle Bay is always busy, has a great buzzy atmosphere and the food is consistently fantastic. Cocktails good too. Definitely one of the best places to come in Southampton.

This place is always busy but the service is good, made even more popular by serving two cocktails for the price of one and there is a great selection. Lovely ambiance on a warm summer evening

Description
Situated in Guildhall Square only 15 minutes from the train station and close to West Quay Shopping Centre and Guildhall. Turtle Bay is perfect for a big night-out, a quiet dinner for two, lunch with work-mates, somewhere to dump all those shopping bags or just somewhere to break the journey home.
