Went for Sunday lunch. Waited 1 hour for meal, which was tepid as it was served on cold plates. Requested water, didn't come. Requested extra gravy, came as we were finishing. Requested tooth picks, never came. Very disappointing.

I recently visited here with my boyfriend. We had the Camembert starter which was delicious and I had the fillet beef for my main which was absolutely fantastic! I actually couldn't quite finish it as I was so full but it was so good the boyfriend finished it for me! Would visit here again!

Had a Christmas lunch here and it was outstanding. The whole place smacks of stylish quality, the food is top notch and all delivered with warm customer service. This is a very special bar-restaurant - it's also the only place we go to for the best fillet steak in town! Highly recommend.

Visited with a friend one Friday evening. Being near to Christmas the restaurant had two big parties in the main restaurant so we chose to sit at a table in the bar. The food was very good (I had whitebait to start - my friend had the prawns). We both ordered the fillet steak for a main course - this... More

This is yet another quality restaurant in Southsea. We are so lucky to live here! It was a busy Saturday night and we hadn't booked but we were immediately welcomed by friendly staff. We chose from the a la carte menu and it was all beautifully cooked and presented. Quality wine and service. Highly recommended. Thank you Restuarant 69.
