We have eaten here a number of times as we are locals and been very impressed. Unfortunately yesterday we were not so lucky. The meal we had, from the specials board, was a very average fish pie with what can only be described as a mountain of bread. It was very overpriced for what it was and we felt ripped... More

Sat outside as it was a lovely hot day. We had the fish and chips and a sausage butty. Both dishes were really nice. The fish and chips meal was huge and the Cumberland sausage used in the butty was really tasty. They were very busy when we were there but we didn't have to wait long. It's a lovely... More

We live in Ventnor and like to have breakfast out sometimes when friends and family come to stay.We haven't done so for a while and went here last Saturday. The service and food were even better than last time and breakfast was just great. Lovely staff too. So pleased to help. Thankyou

My wife and I arrived for a weeks holiday last week, and quickly discovered besty and spinkys after a stroll down the esplenade, looking for somewhere to eat. To cut a long story short, the service was second to none, and spinky was a very helpfull chap, after half an hour he was like your best mate. The food is... More

We called in on Sunday morning for breakfast. It was excellent, nicely cooked and plenty of it. I'm a faddy eater, I was offered alternatives for what I didn't want on the full English. The staff were very friendly and helpful. All in all a very enjoyable experience.

Hard to believe that some of the reviews on here are from the same Cafe/Bar as the Besty and Spinkys we know and love so much. We eat regularly at Besty and Spinkys and have done for many years. There is so much choice on the menu, and they will adapt any of the dishes to your special needs and... More
