Seafood restaurant recommendation: OCEAN VILLAGE NEWS

For guests staying in our Ocean Village apartments we'd like to recommend the Jetty Restaurant» at the Southampton Harbour Hotel & Spa. It gets a great 4.5 rating on Tripadvisor, lots of votes for its lunches, as well as high praise for its evening dinner menu. It offers spectacular panoramic views across Ocean Village Marina and, with warmer weather in mind, an extensive outdoor terrace with luxury 'relaxation pods'. As is fitting for its location, the menus have a strong emphasis on seafood serving dishes such as the Jetty Mix Fish Grill, South Coast Crab Croquettes and Turbot Oyster & Shrimp – but with a good sprinkling of meat meals and reasonable choices for vegetarians and vegans too.
