Restaurant In Southsea, Portsmouth

Hello, we’re Andrew & Yvonne. Welcome to our restaurant!

Minnies is a lovely family-owned restaurant in Southsea, Portsmouth with warm attentive service, delicious beautifully-presented food and the most incredible wine!

[You might remember our Chichester restaurant Amelie and Friends.]

Go on, treat yourself to a fun, elegant lunch.

Or reserve one of our sought-after tables for a fabulous Friday or Saturday night dinner.

Or why not round up family & friends and all come for a lazy luxurious Sunday lunch?

To Book: phone Yvonne on 07910 432 311 or email

[Don’t be put off if it looks like we’re full – we’ve got plenty of tables in our stylish upstairs dining room.]

What can you expect at Minnies?

  • A warm welcome from Andrew & Yvonne
  • Delicious, freshly-cooked, beautifully-presented food
  • Friendly, attentive & efficient service
  • Luscious wines hand-picked by Yvonne

There is 1 step up to the front door.

Our tables on the ground floor are easily accessible.

Unfortunately, our toilets are upstairs.

[If you find stairs a struggle, please request a downstairs table when you book.]

Will I be able to meet Yvonne & Andrew?


Andrew is usually at the restaurant whenever we’re open.

Yvonne is usually at Minnies except for Friday & Saturday lunch. (That’s when she’s looking after her wine shop: Cheers!)

We’re looking forward to seeing you soon!

Do you have gluten-free options?

Yes, most of the food on our menu is gluten-free.

What vegetarian & vegan food is available?

We always have at least 1 excellent vegetarian option for starters, mains and desserts.

And chef can usually adapt dishes to make them vegan – please just ask.

Yes, every Sunday we serve a choice of roast meats: usually beef, pork & lamb, plus golden roast potatoes, fluffy Yorkshire pudding, perfectly cooked vegetables and oodles of gorgeous gravy!

Sunday lunch is served from noon. Our last booking is at 2 pm.

Do you have a children's menu?

No, we don’t, unfortunately.

Children are always welcome at Minnies and we’ll look after them extremely well, but the food and drink we serve is mainly aimed at adults – that’s our speciality and what we do best.

I've heard that Yvonne has a wine shop...


Cheers! is her pride & joy!

The shop is located in Denmead and stocks all the wines we serve at Minnies plus a fantastic selection of gins & spirits you probably won’t find anywhere else.
