That was the claim of the waiter and he was correct, great cup of coffee and fabulous Apple tart. The service was friendly and all at a reasonable price, lovely 11 o clock treat.

Came here for dessert after deserting another restaurant in town because food so bad. We had the best ever Creme brulee (always on their menu). Served by a friendly and entertaining member of staff. This place is always great.

We have been here a few times, the food is great and the atmosphere is really nice. The staff are attentive and helpful. I enjoy the steak here, we always have good food at this place.

Spent most of a lazy Saturday afternoon/ early evening sat outside. Brilliant location, on a little square overlooking the cathedral gardens. If( like me) you're happy to sit and watch the world go by, whilst having a nice glass of wine, some exceptionally good, honest food and a bloody good coffee, this is the place to take up an outside...

Spent three years in France with work, La Place takes me back there every time. Classic French dishes beautifully cooked and presented. A chef with real talent. Love the relaxed atmosphere and the bar area. Exce;lent in the summer months early evening and if you can, grab a table outside, beautiful views over the cathedral

Bistro overlooking the cathedral in the old heart of Winchester. On two floors the bistro serves French food in a light and airy restaurant. On good days outside tables are available. Food ranging from Steak Hache to more challenging fish dishes are well executed and served. Reasonable prices for Winchester.

My good friend took me here and treated me as its one of her favourite places to eat in Winchester. The service was friendly and the restaurant was clean but I wasn't sure what to order so I followed my friends advice and had the steak, it was so tender and melt in your mouth and the vegetables were cooked...
