“Great food, good value for the money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

Never visited before so popped in for lunch menu. I had a very well cooked and tasty steak, my wife had the Sea Bream. Attentive staff and happy to cater for allergies (my wife is lactose intolerant). Two mains, one dessert, two coffees and a White Wine came to £37. Would visit again.

“A fantastic place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

What a wonderful place! I visited here with some friends following an evening out yesterday (Saturday). While we did not eat, the clientale of this establishment is second to none. Considering its location - opposite the lively night-spots of Southsea - this was serene, pleasant, ambient and, just an all-round great place to spend an evening. While the blue flashing lights alerted those opposite that the police were around, the evening continued with no issues inside this outstanding bar/restaurant.

I believe the food here is also excellent - a good range of dishes and all extremely well received from the people I spoke to.

Would highly recommend this place!

“Amazing Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

We were recommended this restaurant by the owners of G Boutique hotel in Southsea where we stayed for 2 nights on a short break. Everything from the welcome to the food cannot be faulted . We both had the slow cooked Belly Pork as a main and it was absolutely out of this world as was the whole meal to be honest. We would highly recommend this restaurant if you are staying in he Southsea area.

“A culinary gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

Had dinner here during our stay in Portsmouth. We were really impressed with the quality of both the service and food. The portions are very generous without sacrificing quality. I had goats cheese starter with lamb for main course. My wife had the moules with pasta for main. All excellent. Very popular with locals so need to book if dining at the weekend. Have heard the sunday roasts are great too with live music.
