We have previously had a lovely experience at this restaurant.
Unfortunately, with all the Bugs around at the moment, we had to cancel our romantic meal for two on saturday night.
L'Ortolan does not provide an ability to cancel the booking less than 2 days before, and you cant talk to anyone if you ring the number on a saturday ("Mon - Friday only ") ..
SO, they have decided to charge £80 for the experience.
You have been warned. Only Book if you know you are definitely able to attend. Otherwise they will charge you.
Absolutely fabulous service and fantastic food. Great atmosphere, all staff were very attentive and made the meal even more special. 10 out of 10 dinning experience. We had the 6 course tasting menu and especially enjoyed the venison which was cooked to perfection.
Overall, a very good experience. The food was out of the ordinary compare to traditional restaurant with some excellent flavours and textures. This was our anniversary and we were expected a gesture from the restaurant, dissapointed.. Also, my partner had an upset tummy the next day.
Great meal! Amazing selection of cheese which were all fantastic. Will be revisiting.
Delicious food, great service and excellent value for money as we did the £95 deal for a 6 course tasting menu and glass of fizz for two. A real treat and we will definitely be back
I was still hungry so had to order a second basket of bread. I felt the wine waiter was a little too frequent to ask did I want to order a second bottle of wine. I did ask for 2 glasses of house wine & subsequently discovered they were £28 for the two. When three people eat with one bottle of wine and two extra glasses the bill comes to just under £400 and I still hungry I don’t think I would recommend this to my friends. Nice food but not value for money no.
Delicious food, great service, relaxed atmosphere. Perfect for a special occasion, great value Menu Du Jour. Having now seen the cheese trolley will have to give that a try next time!
Wonderful food and excellent staff, we look forward to returning as soon as we can.
Amazing food very good staff but the interior ( Toilets) 6 out 10 it just not up to rest of the restaurant needs work
Another wonderful meal here. Just the choice of dessert was a slightly dense caramel slice for the tasting meal. But still one of our favourite places and highly recommended.
No problem at all with the food- most dishes very good with one exception -a rather tasteless and simplistic pre-dessert. But what robotic service - we were there for a birthday celebration and would have appreciated more friendly staff to make it a happy occasion. The food was rather dumped in front of us by miserable looking staff, including my wife's birthday slate, without even a 'Happy Birthday' . We've all been waiting staff, its a tough job I know, but I had to try and be pleasant and chatty to earn the tips - the same should apply here. Imposing an unreasonable 12.5% service charge gives the staff no such incentive. But I would recommend for a business lunch - or after a funeral! We'll go elsewhere.
Favourite restaurant and excellent, as always. The place to go for a special night out! Hampshire’s hidden gem!
We simply had an awesome gastronomic experience. The food was outstanding.
The menu changed! The portion was tiny!! Taste pretty average!!! Why Michelin star??? In simple word abs CRAP!!
I was not blown away as he hoped to be it was very nice but that’s all. The ambience in the conservatory is pretty limp no real atmosphere and on a dull day rather dreary. I didn’t like the waitress calling us ‘my dear’ all the time o found that a little personal
Exceptional service and amazing food. The staff are warm and friendly and extremely knowledgeable
Wonderful as always, L’Ortolan exceeds expectations. Delicious food, fantastic service, amazing wine (recommendations from the sommelier are always excellent). A truly special and memorable dining experience. Thank you!
The service was very poor to indifferent. Staff were either absent or over familiar - complimenting a male guest on the colour of their shirt and when one guest indicated they did not want wine served to them the request was challenged with - but don't you want some for a "can chin" - totally bizarre and inappropriate.
Always wanted to go to L'Ortolan and it didn't disappoint. Excellent service with beautifully presented food and very good value from the tasting menu.
Excellent from the Pre lunch Cocktails to the Sweet. The food is presented in a modern and stylish way and offered superb tastes throughout. The waiting staff could not have been more attentive and the ambience most comfortable. Highly recommended and it was a truly wonderful dining experience
This was our 8th visit in the last year always incredible food and excellent service ,just cant understand why they only have 1 Michelin star when compared to others . We look forward to many more superb meals at the L'Ortolan.
I cannot fault this wonderful resterant. The food is divine - we had the 7 course taster menu - and marvelled over every course. The staff are extremely professional and also quite funny which means a really relaxed, but special atmosphere.
Out of this world food but a stuffy atmosphere. A great evening but the staff lacked any character as did the dining area itself. It is a must do restaurant but I wouldn't rush back.
Very nice. Attentive and very helpful and fun staff. Beautiful food with so much art and love put into each bite. Beautiful surroundings
Very close to perfect. Nine diners with everything eaten!
A lovely Xmas lunch with my best friend
Took my partner for a surprise birthday meal and had the 10 course surprise taster menu with wine. The food was exquisite with amazing wines that complemented each dish. The staff were attentive and very friendly giving the impression that nothing was too much hassle for them. Needless to say my partner had a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
Amazing food. Would steer clear of the Sommelier wine reccomendation
I never thought such incredible food could be created from sometimes such everyday foods...... congrats to the minds behind thee menu and food, it’s just amazing!
I took my parents for a Christmas treat and had a wonderful time. The set lunch menu is great value and the staff are so attentive.
