Nicholsons Restaurant Southsea, exterior


Nicholsons is situated in the increasingly popular Albert Road area of Southsea and offers some of the best value to be found locally, with a great selection of authentic Spanish tapas dishes and main courses including paella (served in a traditional paella pan), fresh fish and steaks. Open every day from 12:00 p.m till late Nicholsons is situated close to local bars, theatre and music venues and is just a short stroll from the seafront.

Established in 2005 Nicholsons was the first tapas bar in Southsea. Over the years they have improved their menu and now boast over 25 freshly prepared tapas and paella all prepared using authentic ingredients and recipes developed over the years. Nicholsons has gained a good reputation among the locals who know a thing or two about good value with early dinner deals before 6:30 p.m every day and 2 for 1 on drinks before 7:00 p.m Weekdays.

They aim to provide a friendly and efficient service in a relaxed and informal atmosphere where you can enjoy our unique cuisine while they look after you and your guests.
