The Alchemist Portsmouth - Gunwharf Quays

Enjoy a celebratory bottle of Moët & Chandon Champagne on arrival for £65!

One of the best Gunwharf restaurants is The Alchemist, which overlooks the the canalside of the quays. You may know the sultry spot for its showy concoctions and beautiful boozy sips, but their food menus aren't to be passed up either. From a bangin' weekend brunch to plates of steak, tacos, bao buns and more, you can eat your way across the globe here.

Sant Yago

Serving up tapas inspired by flavours from across Europe and beyond, Sant Yago stands amongst the best Southsea restaurants when you're craving everything from a light bite to a full feast. Fronting everything from lentil coconut curry to Moroccan lamb, there's meaty, vegan and gluten-free options galore.


Piled-high pancakes? Vintage chic surrounds? Succulent Sunday roasts? Just when you thought beaut spot Becketts couldn't get anymore divine, you find out that the quaint garden tables make it a top pick for Portsmouth restaurants with outdoor seating too. Better yet are the killer cocktails to wash down your meal, including a punchy chilli and blood orange margarita.
