It is just like being in France as soon as you walk into this place. It really feels like a little corner of Paris with the pictures on the walls and the french staff. We enjoyed a romantic supper for two on Valentines night, the menu was varied and the food presented and cooked well. Try the Magret de Canard... More

Having visited this restaurant a few times over the years, I'm still of the opinion that it is like walking through the door into a Bistro Restaurant in France! The restaurant was full but despite that, the service was excellent and food delicious as always. If you're visiting Romsey this place is a must!

I visited La Parisienne today (23 January) with our U3A French Group. While the atmosphere was pleasant, the staff weren't particularly welcoming. I had the set menu £20.95 (starter, main and choice of dessert or coffee). The French onion soup was good to start with. My main choice was escalope of chicken. I asked the waitress what came with this... More

We dined here on Friday night. Our first time here and we'd heard good things. The staff were welcoming and the bar and restaurant area have soft lighting with vintage prints of France doted about and dark furniture. It's very, very acceptable :-) I appreciated that all the other diners were spread out across the restaurant. I noted that everyone... More

Luckily we'd booked as being the week before Christmas the place was full. We've been going to La Parisienne for many years and watched Luc move up through the ranks. Sadly now after many years he's left to open a delicatessen elsewhere in Romsey. Anyway the patron is still there and welcoming as ever. It is amazing just how French... More

Ate here on a Saturday night with 4 family members, glad we booked as it was heaving in the pre-Xmas rush. Excellent friendly service and really good food. Ate off the set menu which was good value and we ate a variety of meat / veggie dishes and also had starters and deserts with some good wine. It's a really... More

We had a lovely light lunch in the bar area - croque monsieur and chicken liver salad. Ther is also a restaurant are for full meals. The owners and staff address you in French, you could be in Paris!

I had lunch with a colleague and was impressed with the atmosphere, it was buzzing, the food was served in a reasonable time and was very good however I found the staff overstretched and quite surly with not a lot of respect for the customer.

I don't normally write reviews but having paid a return visit to La Parisienne last night for the first time in many years and had a very average meal I felt I must let other people know how overpriced and mediocre the food is. For example my wife had French onion soup to start with which was so lacking in... More

Classic French bistro in the heart of Romsey. French staff, French decor and French food - all parfait!
