This is a friendly and welcoming restaurant, situated on the waterfront at Southampton. close to the Cruise Terminal. It offers an extremely comprehensive menu which poses a bit of a challenge as there is so much from which to choose that making a decision on what to eat and what to forego is difficult ..... unless of course, you visit...

Really enjoyable dinner at La Regata. We had a work dinner here which meant everyone chose 3-4 plates of Tapas and if I'm honest, every plate that came out looked delicious. The staff were really friendly, and everything I ate was really, really good. I need to go back and give this place a 2nd go, but everyone I know... More

We have known about La Regata for years and driven past hundreds of times but never visited. Today family from Norfolk suggested eating here after finding on the internet. We went with a slight reluctance..... the food is fantastic, unpretentious and full of authentic flavour. Service was very friendly and efficient. A very extensive menu and cater for all tastes,...

We love coming here, so much so that we call it "our restaurant" and every time I am stuck at the traffic lights I gaze over and remember lovely times spent there. The place isn't big, it's not quiet, but it is good and it's buzz and popularity attest to that. We have tried various items from the menu and... More

Had a meal for my birthday, the staff were very friendly and helpful. They even let us open the blinds so that we could watch the firework display at Mayflower Park, other diners also enjoyed it. The food was lovely and we tried things that we had not before. A good night had by all.

My family and I enjoyed a lovely evening at La Regata last weekend. The place was extremely busy but the service was great. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food....what can I say.....it was delicious!! We also enjoyed some nice wines and sangria. I would definitely visit again and would highly recommend this restaurant.
