This European-inspired restaurant is an expert when it comes to the charcoal grill, and the meats on offer in this Southampton city centre spot are some of the best you’ll find anywhere. The restaurant itself is charming and rustic, and when you first enter there’s an overwhelming feeling that you’ll be in for a really good time.

For the main event, Diego’s really is a carnivore’s haven.

If you’re a seafood fan, the seafood grill selection is for you, made with a mix of sea bream, salmon, king prawns and scallops, and when washed down with an ice cold beer of one of Diego's premium wines, well, we can’t think of anything better really.

Another top night at Diego’s. Great food and friendly service. Fully recommend the wings or chicken to be fair anything! Thank you very much guys.
THE FOOD IS VERY GOOD, THE SERVICE IS GOOD AND THE STAFF ARE VERY FRIENDLY. THE RESTAURANT IS VERY CLEAN. I ALSO LOVE THE VARIETY OF CHOICES.
Amazing food with a great atmosphere the extra hot chicken and spicy rice was first class will be going back soon and recommend it to everyone
The food was lovely and the staff were lovely too. I was however not happy with my meal. Had to order two mains because the first was not enough. It was just two thin slices of beef and a small potion of rice. The rice potion was fine but there was nothing else on the plate to compliment the rice and the beef. Also the beef, I could have done with a thick decent steak not those two thin slices. I ordered an extra plate of quarter chicken, I’m not sure what kind of chicken you use. The quarter chicken looked like it was actually half of the quarter chicken. Otherwise I had a great time with my friends due to the positive atmosphere.
Food was average quality, I asked for a rare steak and got something that was tasteless and over done. The fried egg was forgotten and in order to pay we had to wait 15 minutes posts getting the cheque and asked multiple times for the card reader and was ignored. I'd heard great things about Diegos but think in future i'd give it a miss. THe waitress that served us however was SO lovely. If everything there was up to her standard then i'd definitely reconsider my decision to no return
Great food, great value, brilliant service. The only thing that spoilt it was the party upstairs. Being forced to listen to a large group of girls, all singing out of tune at the top of their voices for the duration of my meal was really off putting. Would have been top marks if that hadn't happened.
The chicken wings were delicious and the atmosphere was excellent. Looking forward to going back and trying other foods off the menu as all the plates coming out looked great. Definitely recommend for value of money too.
Fantastic service, the staff were fantastic, happily working with us when we had an extra person with us for the booking. The food as always was amazing, with a great selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks!
As always the food was amazing, the staff were friendly and genuine and the environment was pleasent. Only minor criticism is that the service was very slow and our table was forgotten a couple of times for extended periods of time.
