Having been in business for almost 30 years, Becketts on Bellevue Terrace in Southsea is a bit of an institution at this point. Spread over four floors, the team at Becketts Portsmouth have created an inviting restaurant that serves up gourmet cuisine with flair and finesse. Dishes on the a la carte include fresh mussels cooked in Guinness, garlic and cream with pancetta, onions and parsley; chorizo and butternut squash risotto with homemade rocket pesto, parmesan and sage crisps and veggie fish and chips comprised of tempura battered halloumi, pesto polenta chips with harissa and sundried tomato mayo. Oh, we’re feeling very hungry all of a sudden... If you love a good roast, be sure to book in for Sunday lunch at Becketts – they’ve got excellent meat and veggie options, and a decadent cheeseboard on the menu for dessert. Advance booking is recommended at this popular spot!
We had a lovely time thank you. The website just needs to make it clear that it is only the deli lunchtime menu available during the day as we had made the reservation based on the full menu, as it suited our various dietary requirements. However, the food was excellent and staff very friendly.
This was a wonderful fine dining expeience, very tasty food and a real treat. The service was impeccable and every employee was happy to be there (lots of smiling faces) I would highly recommend this.
Prosecco on offer at £12.00 a bottle, starters of Pork Croquettes and Mackerel, both lovely. Mains steak and lamb - both perfect. Service excellent, atmosphere great.
Steak wasn't cooked as requested and desert menu very limited and couple of things I would of liked were for sharing so couldn't have those, plus not enough privacy at your table.
