CXO is a vibrant, family-run bar and bistro situated in central Southampton, just a stone’s throw from Southampton Central Station. Proprietor Marco Bertacchini and his team pride themselves on serving freshly prepared rustic dishes in a relaxed and friendly environment. Just a couple minutes’ walk from the Mayflower Theatre, the restaurant remains a popular destination for theatre-goers, offering a calm and comfortable pre-theatre dining experience for both matinée and evening performances. If disappointment is to be avoided, it’s best to book in advance.

The restaurant’s menu pairs uncomplicated, seasonal bistro dishes with quality regional produce. The locally renowned CXO Burger is an especially popular option. It comprises an altogether impressive 8oz beefburger, cooked to perfection and stacked with smoked bacon, chorizo, Cheddar, red onions, vine tomatoes and fresh salad leaves, served in a ciabatta bun with hand-cut triple-cooked chips. If burgers don’t tempt you, CXO’s varied à la carte menu will certainly offer something that does.

CXO also offers an outstanding range of world wine, craft ale and an enviable selection of locally produced gin. If it’s just coffee and cake that you’re after, the restaurant also stocks plenty of teas and quality Italian coffee, complemented by a dizzying array of homemade cakes and desserts.

Those planning a special event can use CXO for their private function. Marco and the team are friendly and accommodating. They’ll help you plan your gettogether and see to it that all your needs are met.

In the warmer months customers can enjoy the outside seating area, taking in the impressive floral displays. This really is the place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city centre without moving too far at all.
