We were staying in a nearby hotel whose restaurant was in total chaos on the night in question, so venturing further afield we came upon this gem of a neighbourhood restaurant. Nothing fancy here, just a cosy atmosphere, welcoming staff and good simple food. We...More

I spent about 5 days ringing at various times both the landline & the mobile but neither were answered and then a friend said it had closed. Just so no one else wastes their time!

Turned up without a booking on a Monday night, to find an already very busy restaurant at 7pm. Had the Swordfish off the specials board, followed by home made Tiramasu. Very good quality and highly enjoyable! I’ll be back the next time I’m in Portsmouth.
