Arrived here for pre-show dinner, shown to a dark & dingy table in the corner (despite it being virtually empty), the table was filthy and the waitress who showed us to our table was disinterested. We didn't even sit down it was so awful and...More

A mixed family group of six. Nibbles then main course salads, curry and pizza. Sensibly priced and copious desserts. All in all, an excellent meal, enjoyed by three generations of diners. We will no doubt return another day.

Gusto Lounge Bar & Bistro is at the heart of Southampton's cultural centre and the gateway to the City. If you are a visitor to the city using the busy central station, the ever popular Mayflower theatre which is home to most of the biggest west end musicals and plays or the newly opened sea city and titanic museum you will find us ideally placed. Our lounge bar is located on the ground floor. This is a casual dining environment. The ‘All Day Menu’ is served here on a walk in only basis; so casually walk in, sit down and then order at the bar. Our Bistro is located on our first floor; here you can enjoy a more formal dining experience. Between 5 – 7 pm, the kitchen prioritises the Bistro due to the proximity of The Mayflower, so particularly if you’re a theatre visitor, this is the place to dine.
