We really enjoyed our breakfast here, everything was delicious!
Top notch fry up! On the pricey end but very tasty. Friendly staff and fast service, thought they'd forgotten the bacon but they quickly brought over a plate with a huge pile of it. Might be worth booking as it was busy but they managed to get us a table after a short wait. Highly recommended.
Wonderful, delicious and generously portioned veggie breakfast with my lady this morning. A very stylish place to eat, thanks.
Exceeded expectations! I’m so sick of being disappointed by restaurants, many of which seem to be steadily reducing quality - but Forté was a delight; perfect poached eggs, generous portions (especially the maple syrup! Nice!) and a reassuringly small but imaginative menu. Recommend the sweetcorn fritters. If you’re a fan of the other breakfast place in Winchester then do give this one a try, you might be surprised. We’ll definitely be back.
Waitresses all smiley and helpful. We were seated promptly. Cannot fault their service. However, the food took 40 minutes to arrive. The beef burger was bloody and runny, causing the bottom bun to go soggy. The flavour wasn’t great. I felt really sick the whole day after eating it. The chips and slaw were good and the drinks were good. The cafe is located on the first floor with no lift access. It was extremely noisy and no music was playing. For the time we waited, the food quality and the atmosphere being a headache I would not recommend or return.
