Keep meaning to upload a quick review and after visiting on Valentine's day lunchtime I am pleased to say that once again the food was fabulous and the service friendly. We've been dining here for many years and always feel welcome and always comment that it's a bit like being in France.

this is an outstanding genuine French restaurant run by a very French Gael and his friendly staff. Great location at the end of "The Green" by the Cathedral.

We just had coffee. The staff were very welcoming and did not mind us bringing a dog and provided water for her.

We had a very enjoyable family celebration for 34 guests recently. The staff were very helpful and friendly. They were very accommodating and relaxed about any last minute changes. The service was a bit slow to start with but once we'd been given our starters it flowed from there on. Food was tasty, enjoyable and well presented. House wine was... More

My husband and I visited La Place Bistro, in December, whilst staying in Winchester, firstly we were given the worst table by the front door in the restaurant, so spent most the evening shutting the door as other guests kept leaving it open, the starters were OK but the main course, a turkey meal, was obviously microwaved with very poor...

Went there Tuesday for our firm's departmental lunch. Can't fault it, absolutely perfect. Have been there before but despite being busy this time of the year they dont compromise either on quality or service. Excellent. Thank you.

We visited on 3 December and had a wonderful meal. We didn't have a reservation but they managed to find us a table as someone had booked but didn't turn up. The staff were very nice and extremely helpful. The food was delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant and the next time we visit Winchester we will certainly make... More

We visited La Place for an early lunch before walking around the Christmas Market. The location is excellent being in The Square near the Cathedral. We did have to book a table, however it was worth it for the delicious food. The courses are reasonably priced with a fairly good choice although the menu is quite brief. The staff were... More
