The food is exquisite, the service excellent. This restaurant produces Michelin quality food at incredibly reasonable prices. The 30 hour pork belly is the best thing I have ever eaten.

A family gathering for Sunday lunch and what a great meal it was. The spacious dining area means that tables are well spaced but somehow still manages to feel intimate. The service throughout was excellent and matched the exceptional food on offer, the chefs take on Traditional Sunday Roast was innovative , beautifully cooked and full of flavour , every... More

We finally managed to book a table on a Saturday night and were looking forward to the food. I say the food because the decor is nothing to write home about and it lacks a little atmosphere. We weren't disappointing after selecting the tasting menu 1, it delivered what we expected, top quality ingredients, well presented, fantastic taste and served... More

This was a Saturday evening in August, we joined friends and both our men were celebrating their birthdays - what a brilliant idea, we chose the 'Taster Menu' as not sure what to expect - we weren't disappointed. Even 'liquid pastry' which conjured up all sorts, tasted 'wonderful'!! Try it, if you're a true 'foodie who enjoys good taste' you... More

One of the best resturants in Portsmouth. The service was great , staff very attentive and food was fab. The only problem is you have to book well in advance for a saturday evening.

Dinner for 4 here whilst the lovely wife's parents were in town. A wonderful front of house team takes care of the dining room, the service is amongst the best we have ever experienced. The kitchen is incredible, the chefs are consistent with quality, delicious food delivered for every course. Thank you Restaurant 27

This is our 3rd visit and as usual we enjoyed every delicious mouthful. Service is as smooth as gravy, surroundings relaxed and sophisticated. This wonderful place is better than some overrated and stuffy Michelin star restaurants we have been to. I hope 27 never gets a Star, even though it well deserves one, as I fear it would lose its...
