When it comes to eating out, Portsmouth’s best restaurants aren't quite what you’d expect. Instead, they’re a fun collection of Indian, Latin and American joins that create a diverse culinary landscape. Adding to the run of unusual places to eat is Huis, a Belgian bar and kitchen found in the sweet surrounds of Southsea. This spot is just outside the city centre, down towards the sea, and offers up a famous promenade, a long stretch of beach and the famous Victoria pier.

You might be wondering how a Belgian restaurant translates on the UK’s south coast, and we’re pleased to say the combination is a happy one. Here you’ll find the best seafood and cosy comfort food, all with a disctinct Belgian flavour. Small plates are the ideal way to kick off your meal, and act as a great way to create a convivial atmosphere around the table if you’re happy to share.

To start, the bitterballen are a must. These beef and beer sourdough balls are wonderfully moreish and served with a honey mustard dips that takes them into addictive territory. Elsewhere there is a range of croquettes (think crayfish, dill and beer, or porcini, Parmesan, and truffle) plus loaded fries and moules mariniere with garlic butter, white wine and parsley, served with toasted sourdough.

If you’re visiting at lunchtime you might like to try the range of croque sandwiches, all served with fries, mayo and salad. The Croque Monsieur is of course the classic, but other delicious combinations include the Reuben with cheese, pastrami, sauerkraut and Russian dressing, and the Royale, which is made with smoked salmon, fresh spinach, and cheese all topped off with a fried egg.

Heartier fare includes a whole moules et frites menu section as well as traditional mains like steak frites, duck confit or slow roasted belly pork.
