A short stroll from the Historic Dockyard, Gunwharf Quays and sea front, this long-established bistro (with outside terrace in summer) is a “reliable” option for straightforward fare that’s “good value for money”. “Excellent wines too”, as they run a bottle shop upstairs.

“Okay, so it doesn’t command brilliant views” but “on a sunny day, sitting in the courtyard” at this Old Portsmouth bistro is “delightful”. From a menu that’s “quite adventurous” results are “better than average”, and they serve “out-of-the-way wines” from their upstairs bottle shop.

In Old Portsmouth, and “well worth the effort to find it” – this cheerful bistro is “a regular haunt” handy for the IOW ferry and Gunwharf Quay. Above the restaurant they also run a wine business (Camber Wines).

“The independent answer to the chains in Gunwharf”; “consistently reliable on all fronts”, this “always cheerful” bistro gains particular praise for its “interesting wines” – no surprise given that “they have their own wine business (Camber Wines) above the restaurant”.
