Southampton is a vibrant and diverse city and this is reflected in the bounty of restaurants to be found in nearly any cuisine you can think of. Known as Europe’s cruise capital, Southampton is also home to award winning restaurants that can take your senses (and belly) on an indulgent and delicious tour of Europe.
Offering up scrumptious Italian and Mediterranean dishes, Max’s over on Oxford Street is known for its seafood. It is easy to see how passionate they are about food (the chef’s hail from Napoli) and the chicken cacciatore is exquisite. Loved by the locals, Max’s is a firm staple for good quality food and has one of the best wine lists in the city!
A beautiful Spanish tapas restaurant in the heart of Southampton’s waterfront. Now in it’s 22nd year, there are over 65 tapas to choose from plus a good selection of main courses on the specials board. La Regatta has a very authentic vibe and beautiful décor to suit. Drinks menu is extensive enough to please different tastes but the sangria’s are delightful – as close to Spain as you can get without leaving town!
Nestled in the heart of Southampton’s Old Town, George's is the oldest family-owned restaurants in Southampton (77 years!). You will be sure of a relaxed and pleasant meal here. From king prawns in filo pastry to lamb kleftiko, the menu caters for all. Opa!
Love pretzels, schnitzel and bratwurst? Then you are in luck. Set out in traditional German style and with an authentic menu loved by many, Stein Garten is the perfect place to relax with a stein of beer and a wurst. Live music every weekend will really get you in the mood. You could even try the Stein Dog challenge and get your name on the Leader board. Fame!
