Customer Reviews for Shorties - Portsmouth

Great Food! - review added on Tue 27th Mar 2007

I have been to Shorties on a number of ocassions and have never been disappointed. Their food is excellent and my favourite garlic mushrooms are not one to miss. Diane sauce on my fillet steak is also what I always order. It is yummy with chips. As for desserts, there are loads of classic style tall ice-creams in every flavour you can think of. The place is cosy and not like anywhere else. It is quite the opposite of a modern, flash, bland, poncey restaurant. It has character and service with a smile. The waitresses are always happy to see you with service you can't fault. The bosses must treat their staff well! This is undoubtedly the best restaurant in Portsmouth and all those who go to Shorties know that.

Best steak in Pompey - review added on Mon 1st Sep 2008

I travel to Portsmouth through work at least once a month, I used to stay in Gunwharf and frequent the very expensive Strada restaurant but I now stay at Pembroke Road which is 1 minute walk from Shorties. This restuarant is excellent for its quality and prices, I love the garlic mushrooms, but the chicken wings are even better. I have had the fillet on a few occasions which is fantasic, I now tend to go for the massive 16oz T bone though which I adore, never have room for a desert but they all look divine. Staff are dead friendly and they even gave me a cocktail on my birthday!!
