Southampton Central train station is also a half mile walk away from this Nando's.
Parking: 
Parking in Southampton is plentiful, easily found/signposted and reasonably priced, but does differ between places. For example, your nearest to Nando's is the Civic Centre priced at 60p/30mins, £1.60/1hr and £3/2hrs (max 2-hour stay) and is a couple of minutes walk away. Other larger car parks include the Marlands (£1/1hr, £2/2hrs, £2.80/3hrs, £3.50/4hrs and £5/day), West Park (£2.50/2hrs, £3.30/3hrs, £4.50/4hrs and upwards from there) or Grosvenor Square (£1/1hr, £2.50/2hrs, £3.30/3hrs, £4.40/4hrs and upwards) - and are all within a short half mile walk away.

The wait for the food let this branch down but out of the two Southampton branches, this was the clear winner.

Got to this branch just after half 3 and before kick off of the home game between the Saints and Chelsea. We'd just had a drink in the second Wetherspoons that had quietened down as people left, possibly to go to the stadium. We'd also spent about a half an hour in Brewdog playing Connect 4, which I won about 20 games.

The best part of a horrible evening in Southampton for footballing reasons was definitely a visit to a new Nando's after 3 previous visits to the city without managing a single Nandventure!

This is the newer of the two Nando's in the city, although I wasn't particularly inspired by the decor. It had a nice feel to it, but nothing outstanding and some weird bird figurines lining the wall in rather mysterious fashion.

Heading back from the IOW allowed me to stop in on this newest of all Nando's, in the shiny new Arts Quarter development around the new O2 Guildhall. Parking in Southampton is plentiful, easily found/signposted and reasonably priced, but does differ between places. For example, your nearest to Nando's is the Civic Centre priced at 60p/30mins, £1.60/1hr and £3/2hrs (max 2-hour stay) and is a couple of minutes walk away.

This new Nandos in the new and uncompleted Guildhall arts quarter in Southampton is quite nice, however getting to it is a nightmare. In part this is because it is amoungst the first store to be finished and open and thus is in a building site with the road and a lot of the pavement outside still a hoarded off building site. You have to walk down a narrow gap in the hoardings from the north side to reach it.
