French cuisine might not be the first thing that pops into diner’s minds when they think about Southsea. But for those that want to get a delicious taste of local history, there’s only one destination for dining out in Portsmouth. Named after the city’s French founder, Jean de Gisors, Gisor’s has become an important part of the local community, serving café classics with relaxed European flair.
The charming restaurant is just a stone’s throw from the sea. It would make a fine option for families seeking casual places to dine out in Portsmouth after a day at the seaside or exploring Southsea Model Village. Locals will also find it ideal for a post-shopping meal. While theatre buffs will find that it’s just a five-minute walk from Kings Theatre.
Mismatched vintage furniture, warm lighting and friendly service are just some of the reasons that have made Gisor’s a favourite haunt, not to mention one of the most charming Portsmouth restaurants. This is a place that’s made for diners that want to eat out in Portsmouth without feeling rushed. And in the spring and summer, their outdoor terrace will make a wonderful retreat.
Perfect for a light meal or lunch break treat, Gisor’s serves a delicious selection of French café classics. Diners that want to sate their sweet tooth can indulge in options like banana and caramel crepes, crème brulee and fresh tarts to give elevenses a French twist. Or for something a little more savoury, ham and cheese-topped waffles and seafood salad should do the trick.
