Date night. Food was excellent. Service and ambience was friendly but not intrusive or overbearing. Cost was reasonable. Altogether a lovely evening. We will be visiting again soon.

We enjoyed our lunch at Truffles, but perhaps the 5 star reviews had led me to expect too much, as I wasnt blown away. Straight to main, so cant comment on starters and desserts, the venison and lamb in our respective dishes were both excellent, but I was sl underwhelmed by the parmentier potatoes and fennel accompaniments. My potatoes were neither plentiful nor piping hot. Nice glass of Malbec helped. The restaurant was very quiet on this Thursday lunchtime, but the service was excellent - cheerful, friendly, helpful and prompt. So, prob 7/10, veering towards the 4/5!

My husband and I both had the beef and whilst his was cooked well mine was very dry, when we pointed this out the waitress asked if we wanted more gravy! We asked for a new piece of beef, 20 minutes later a new piece was brought out that was just as dry. By this point my husband had finished and I wanted to go home.

Lovely family owned and run restaurant. Excellent attentive service - nothing was too much trouble. The food was absolutely out of this world!! The flavours on the beautifully presented plate of fresh local produce were sublime. Atmosphere was friendly, warm and cosy... cannot rate this local restaurant highly enough! Thank you

An unpretentious but truly delicious little restaurant - not many tables or posh decor, but very, very good food, well presented and with excellent service. Judging from some of the other diners, a "hidden gem" with a loyal and well-satisfied clientele. We'll be back!

Lovely find in a cosy restaurant. Service good, but a bit cold with air on jet above us, bit like being in a jet. Lovely food.

Arranged to meet a friend for lunch at Truffles. I had been there before but my friend had not. We had the fixed price lunch menu. The food was outstanding and excellent value for money. We enjoyed it so much that we booked a table while we were there for our next catch up. I would 100% recommend Truffles to anyone who enjoys fine food, it really is the best restaurant in the Fareham area - and the only restaurant of its calibre.

First time we have been to Truffles and we were pleasantly surprised.
Lovely meal in pleasant surroundings. Pretty good service considering front of house was one lady on her own - coping with a full restaurant. However that made for a relaxing evening.
Will definitely go back and maybe try one of their “specials” evenings.

The lady doing the service worked so hard and always with a smile. Food was excellent, I had the beef steak and requested well done. Usually this means tough and taste less. Not in this case...it was moist, full of flavour and very tender.
My husband had lamb for starter and main. He said it was the tastiest lamb he had had in many years.

Food and service were outstanding. The whole experience was fantastic and I will definitely be going back. I think the place has just been re decorated because there was a faint smell of fresh paint and no mirrors in the closets but don't let that put you off.
