I found this interesting website about the historic port city of Portsmouth, with many great photos. The site is quite informative for visitors (it lists accommodation, food and drink apart from the tourist sights) but what makes it special is the way it is presented and the beautiful pictures. Makes you want to go now.
This restaurant has recently opened in southsea.
The food is of the highest quality and the service is second to none. I have been there twice now and am so excited about having my birthday there! If anyone does go there you have to have the pork, it is like no other meat dish i have ever tried.

I had a gorgeous Sunday lunch at the King Street Tavern the other day, and now I know why all the locals rave about it! Really tasty food, friendly staff and prompt service. Nice atmosphere too as it's was busy on a Sunday
It's a small cockle stall selling, yep you guessed it, cockles. But they also do the MOST amazing hot chocolate with bits of Mars Bars floating in it and topped with marshmallows. Very indulgent and naughty but a great winter warmer.
The Hard, Portsmouth. Between Portsmouth Harbour train station and Portsmouth Historic Dockyard's entrance.
Stan, who despite the name is a real French bloke, cooks some fantastic, unusual and delicious rustic French food and loads of different sausages and mash, veggie options too. All of this is served at Little Johnny Russell's. It's a great pub in Albert Road, Southsea. Visit it... good food, great music, lovely staff.
A little French cafe in Southsea. Amazing food, friendly service and fairly cheap prices. It's a place to relax, enjoy your food and hang out with your friends.

Gunwharf Quays is a designer outlet on Portsmouth Harbour. It's a great place to pick up a few bargains with outlets by Paul Smith, GAP, Next, Burberry, Nike, and loads more including some "kitchen" shops. The day we were there, there was a skateboard event on that kept my 7 year old nephew very happy, and the week before there had been a Food Festival with Ken Hom, so seems there is always something happening.
Had lunch at Strada - there are lots of restaurants to choose from, including the usual Burger King up to Loch Fyne and other "good restaurants". Would recommend for a family day out, or just to break the bank shopping!
Recently opened fine fresh seafood stall selling cockles from Whitstable, whelks from Donegal, jellied eels, seafood mixes, prawns, mussels and crabsticks. Food is quality served by Dave and his family. New business and already looking to expand.
Opposite war memorial on Clarence Parade, Southsea ,Portsmouth. Plenty of parking.
