I would love to leave a good review, however, my online booking was confirmed yet when we came specifically to Winchester the restaurant was closed. I understand that things happen beyond planning and control but I feel there could have been some contact to inform me of this once you knew that you were going to be closed!! Therefore unable to review completely!

First time eating at Winchester, usually go to Southampton. Staff were very friendly on arrival and seated us to our table promptly. Service was very quick, drinks took a little longer but that’s expected as it was busy. Ordered food and next minute it was being brought to our table which was excellent. Great food and drink as always. Would recommend coming her to all my family and friends, can be a quick bite to eat or a 3 course dinner. Great customer service by all the team.

The staff were useless, lost of people wondering around looking pretty. Really disliked the cocktails and the fact that our drinks arrived after our food. Staff weren’t that helpful from me booking the table to us paying the bill. Poor over all wouldn’t go again.

2 persons booked for 13.15 on a Saturday. First impressions was of a dirty floor, food debris under tables and chairs. Not an inspirational image to be met with at that time of day ( or at any other time of day). Handed paper menus, one was covered in a red sticky goo. Grabbed another menu from an adjoining table, that was also smeared with the remnants of a previous diners meal. Drink and Food order taken effeciently and served in an acceptable time frame. Both of us were pleased with the quality and quantity of the food. Audio system only turned on toward the end of our meal. Aah, at last, some ambience relevant to the restaurants theme. In short: up the cleanliness, certainly for visual impact and play da moosic.

Disappointing. Far too loud - we couldn’t even chat at the table. I specifically requested a good table when booking as was a double family birthday. We were shoved in a corner where there was very little room...two small tables pushed together for five people. No personal touch - fair enough but then don’t ask for special requests when booking. The toilets were shocking. Dirty and in disrepair. Food was nothing special & everything else ruined the experience.

Our waiter was rather slow who didn’t seem to know or understand the menu and also had to recount our receipts and cash around 6 times before he was happy to let us leave

the service and meal was very good, what let you down was No Savignon Blance wine, No Prosecco, we don't like Chardonay, Also the music was too loud, with a lot of guest people were having to raise their voices to be heard.

The cocktails were expensive and I've had much better. The meal was very tasty, but portions are small. Fine for me, but friends were left hungry. The atmosphere was good tho be prepared for loud music inside. Overall nice enough but I wouldn't rush back.

Excellent food and cocktails, superb service from the staff. We've been inspired to start cooking Caribbean food at home! It got a little smokey inside from the kitchen grills - that's the only point I could make for improvement.

A voucher I received for free drinks was a little ambiguous and implied my friends and I could each have one free drink- the manager disagreed and was quite short with us. The waitress however was very sympathetic and more than made up for it with her excellent service, a smile goes a long way!

Soooo noisy, couldn’t hear my friends speak. Food was mostly lovely but our waiter forgot I was gluten free and served my starter prawns on flat bread. Service was slow. £8.95 for a glass of wine is too expensive. I had a voucher for a free drink and was surprised I had to add more. Then the toilets broke and we all had to queue for the single disabled toilet. Not my best night out

Service could have been a bit slicker but very friendly and helpful staff. Food and drinks were very nice and made a nice change to the usual Indian, Italian or Thai options for eating out.

Having visited a few times, our family loves the food and atmosphere of the Turtle Bay restaurant in Winchester. The one issue letting them down is a lack of organisation or perhaps coordinated delivery of service. If you are unlucky then you can be waiting for 40minutes before your drinks order is taken. This can happen even when it seems the restaurant is not busy. Overall I think management should be dealing with this.

Loved it - great atmosphere and good food at reasonable prices. The service was a bit slow though - you could have sold us another drink or two had it been faster!

Myself and my friends all commented on how slow the service was. We seemed to be waiting a long time for plates to be cleared between courses. The guy who initially took our order was polite, but not very attentive.
