Birthday treat

Just stayed in St. Helens for short break at local caravan site. Before coming decided to prebook a nice meal to celebrate my husbands birthday. We were delighted with the result. Food and service excellent. We will certainly be returning on our next visit to the island.

I hope Carla would now consider me a regular so, from that perspective, my review is entirely biased. This is simply the best restaurant around. The food, service and setting are superb. It's great to sit and listen to people enjoying their first meal here, amazed at the quality of what is produced. At our last visit over Easter we... More

My wife and I visited Dan's Kitchen on the last night of our holiday and it was a meal to remember. The staff were delightful and very efficient and the food was excellent. I decided on the fish and chips having read previous recommendations. Not an exciting choice when there were some other tempting dishes on the menu, but it... More

Travelled to the Isle of Wight for Easter and decided to book ahead thinking it may be busy. They were but they managed to squeeze us in for an early table. Lovely staff and the food was absolutely gorgeous. We had our young daughters with us and they made up whatever meals they wanted!! One had a burger (the 'best'... More

This was our second visit to St Helens - both times arriving by boat into Bembridge Harbour. On our last visit, the Harbour Master recommended Dan's Kitchen as a reliable and local place to eat. Sadly on this occasion (Feb 2015), the restaurant was closed. Our second visit was on Thursday the 2nd April and we had a success. The... More

Fantastic food, couldn't recommend it enough, I'd suggest booking in advance though as the restaurant is quite small. As well as some of the best food I've tried, the service was excellent too, in no way stuffy or too relaxed to care, the staff were very welcoming. All the dishes looked meticulously cared for so patience is required, dessert is... More

Had lunch at Dans Kitchen today (Saturday 4th April) the place was full but the wonderful staff maintained an excellent service and were very delightful. The food was spot on and cooked to perfection. Only managed a starter and main from a perfectly sized menu - which had so much gorgeous sounding dishes - this is a great excuse to... More

Just returned home after another great meal. We both chose the fish and chips followed by lemon sponge with lemon curd and lime ice cream. All were delicious. Would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant. Staff attentive but not intrusive.

3 wonderful courses, but I must tell you about the starter, as I was having meat instead off fish for my main course, I only wanted a light starter, but the menu appeared to be full of potential heavy dishes, so I plumped for crab cakes, not my usual type of starter and I wasn't looking forward to them, but...

We heard about this restaurant from friends but when we called they were fully booked but if we went early we could have a table as long as we were out by 8 pm. We snapped this up as don't like eating late. Ordered a deconstructed fish pie which was delicious although it could have been a bit hotter. For... More
