Southsea seafront needs more of these little type restaurants as it make the area so much more appealing.The Southsea Beach Cafe is in a great location right on the seafront not to far from South Parade Pier.When visiting here we went for the Fish n Chips which we both enjoyed.The fish was very big white and fluffy and cooked to perfection.Maybe could have done with a few more chips but most places now you only get a handful anyways.service was a little slow but it was a busy day so can’t complain to much.would most likely return in the future.

My daughter and I were spending the day on the beach and decided to have lunch here. My daughter had been looking forward to the crab Mac & Cheese, it was a disappointment, £12 for a small shallow bowl was delivered, we were convinced it was not fresh crab, had no crab flavour at all. Looking around it was a popular dish, most of which had 2 nicely toasted bits of bread, ours had one piece of untoasted bread. There was a very bitter side salad with no dressing.
My beef sandwich was tasteless about from the sun dried tomatoes, the sticky onion relish was very average. The bread was fresh but far too thick and dry. Again a very bitter side salad with no dressing.
This place is in a stunning location and we’ve been before but this was by far the most disappointing and expensive.

Dropped in about 8:30 on a super sunny Sunday for breakfast with the kids. Never been before and the location and ambience was great;like being on the south coast of France! Sadly so was the service....ie indifferent.

Food was of a good standard,if a little on the cold side. Service was quite poor, they could have done with having at least 2 more staff members. Took 15 mins to take our order and one waitress was pretty surley about the whole thing. However to be fair the guy who welcomed us and eventually took our order was full of smiles and very genuine.

I would go back though, with a location like that, the average food and service experience is well made up for by the view and good vibe the place has. Maybe it was just an off day.

This is a great place to come and eat as couple or family. Having breakfast, lunch by the sea couldn’t be better. Chips are different in presentation a bit funky in a good way, certainly enjoyable. Dogs can join you which is cool this is of course if there is room in the area set aside for people with dogs.
