THE doors have opened to a new Southampton eatery Bistro at Shamrock Quay.

The Bistro is the latest venture by Sharon Costagliola and Mark Walters who previously set up the celebrated Bistro 8 on the Hamble River.

The new Bistro at Shamrock Quay has a large bar area, perfect for after work drinks or pre-match refreshments, and a 60 cover restaurant open seven days a week serving a section of a la carte dishes and local specialities.

It came about after Bistro 8 at Universal Marina had to close at short notice in mid October as they had to find new premises.

In just three weeks, the team have revamped and opened the new restaurant.

Mark Walter said: “The team has done an amazing job in turning around the new venue in just three short weeks. We can’t wait for customers to start enjoying the new venue at the stunning Shamrock Quay in Southampton.

“We will be ensuring that our customers favourites such as freshly baked pizzas and loaded burgers remain on the menu as well as introducing ‘catch of the day’ specials from the local fishmongers here in the Marina.”

The Bistro will offer weekday lunchtime specials for those looking for a quick bite or a takeaway to picnic out on the water and every Sunday there will be a seasonal roast complete with all the trimmings.
