    Very attentive and polite staff. Superbly cooked steak (I am fussy, so many restaurants cannot cook them properly) The only minor downside, it got a little noisy at times with some of the younger diners but I guess they were enjoying themselves!

    This was our first time here to Number 73 and we had a lovely meal. We had a camembert sharing board and a selection of tapas. Everything was piping hot and so well cooked. We really liked the selection of toasted bread with the camembert. The gin list is pretty comprehensive and I tried a gorgeous cherry gin as well as having a cocktail. The service here is also very good. Our food came out in good time and plates were quickly cleared when done.

    Very friendly staff, and really helpful with my food allergy questions. Recommended a nice gin too! I loved the decor too! Only thing - for me at least - is that it was a little pricier than I expected, especially for Waterlooville

    Lovely restaurant/bar. Waiting staff could be a bit more attentive as it wasn’t busy yesterday evening. Can I suggest cook rethinks the chicken Caesar salad which I had. Chicken over cooked and rubbery, hardly any dressing and no cheese shavings. Croutons very hard.

    We booked a table for 7.30 on 17th July. I ordered a mojito and my partner had a lager, the waitress came back and told me they had no mint for themojito but could do it without the mint (mint is kind of a key ingredient!!!) So I declined and opted for a passion fruit martini which was mediocre, I don't think it had been shaken in a cocktail shaker as there was no froth, it looked like it had been poured from a can but it tasted fine so I didn't mention anything. For my main I ordered the smoked duck, mushroom and FIG salad, it was okay but it only had two tiny slivers of fig, there wasn't even a quarter of a fig in the salad which was pretty poor. We could't fault the waitresses as they were friendly enough and did offer to ask the kitchen for more fig but at this point I had eaten half whilst hoping to find some figs in the salad so told her not to bother. My partner had a plain rump steak which he said tasted very cheesy. He said it tasted like they'd cooked the steak on a griddle that they had previously cooked a cheeseburger on, so that spoilt the steak and it wasn't cheap! Finally we decided to share an Eaton mess which stated on the menu ice cream and broken meringue. Yet again the meringue was hard to find, maybe a teaspoon at most amongst the ice cream (when I last looked meringue is a KEY ingredient in Eton Mess). All in all very disappointing and we won’t be returning, No 73 really need to up their game if they want to compete with a far superior restaurant a few miles up the road where the food is always excellent.

    We had a very disappointing meal on a Friday evening. We chose 6 tapas plates to share; the patatas bravas were undercooked so had to be returned for a 'blast' and the rest of the food was pretty flavourless. Ever hopeful we ordered an apple pie to share for dessert which came out looking and tasting like it had just been reheated from the freezer (which it probably had). All in all we were incredibly disappointed. What I will say is that the waiting staff were very attentive so we couldn't fault them.

    Food took nearly an hour to arrive, while other people who ordered after us got their food a lot quicker. It seemed our order had been forgotten. Waitress did not tell us upon ordering that some items were not available. After finally receiving our food no one came back to see if everything was OK with the order. In addition no one asked if we wanted anymore drinks even though our glasses were empty for some time. I had to ask for more drinks. Overall the meal was enjoyable, but customer service could have been better
