About CXO Bar & Bistro

If you’re looking for a perfect pre-theatre drinking and dining spot in Southampton, look no further than CXO Bar & Bistro. It’s just two minutes walk from the Mayflower Theatre in The Polygon and a stone’s throw from Southampton Central station – truly a fantastic location on Nelson Gate. It’s an extremely stylish restaurant with contemporary decor in mind, a theme which is complemented perfectly by the continental food on offer. Some CXO classics include the handmade giant ravioli and the philly steak sandwich, but there’s plenty more besides in the way of burgers, wraps and jacket potatoes. CXO Bar & Bistro is perfect for when you’re on the move but also a great space to relax. See what the fuss is about and reserve a table now.

Food was excellent and the staff were very helpful and attentive. We much appreciated this as my wife is a wheelchair user. Will definitely go again the next time we are in Southampton.

Love eating here, lovely freshly made food, attentive staff without being overbearing. It was a busy pre theatre lunchtime when we went, so glad we had booked or we might have missed out. We shared a bottle of wine. On reflection I should of asked for a jug of water but that was down to me. Loved the bacon and Brie baguette I had and the chips were crispy on the outside and soft inside. This is definitely my ore theatre go to so I will be back

Easy access to the train station and Mayflower Theatre. Good choice of food - wraps, baguettes, baked pots, omelettes as well as starters and mains. Friendly staff. Small so booking recommended if you want to be sure you'll get a table. We were there at lunchtime and it was full, a bit noisy due to low ceilings. Well worth a visit. Take away available too.

Really impressed with the quality of this small restaurant. An interesting selection of meals including the specials and all reasonably priced. The quality of the food was excellent and a very nice house red to go with it. Very well laced to go to the Mayflower Theatre after the meal

This is the perfect location. A few minutes from the Mayflower Theatre and just across the road from the station. My friend and I both had a lovely dinner here. The food was excellent as was the service. So looking forward to our return visit.

This is a great place to meet and eat/ drink with friends or colleagues. The staff are friendly and service is prompt. The food was cooked to order and really tasty. Highly recommend the smoked salmon with scrambled eggs. The portion size is good too!

Excellent food and very good value. My friend and I both had burgers, which were delicious. It is very close to the Mayflower and the service was quick meaning we could eat and then get to the show on time.
