Love this place!

We booked in for Easter Sunday (luckily got a cancellation) and, as usual, the food was absolutely delicious. I love the atmosphere here and the staff were great. They do a great kids menu too.

Beautiful evening with the sun setting. Drinks were poor, mojito was weak and lacking in flavour. We ordered a Thai seafood broth, a vegetarian choice and a Caesar salad. All three main courses were all in the own way very disappointing. The seafood broth was weak and lacking in flavour, the vegetarian spring rolls were tiny on a bed of... More

Me and my partner decided to go to The Little Gloster as the menu and reviews we read impressed us. We booked a table at the restaurant the night before for our lunch, and the booking went through fine. Around 10 minutes later we got a phone call from the restaurant saying the system hadn't updated and they needed to... More

we had a lovely 3 course dinner with the main course being lobster, they were too uniformed, not crunchy shells, dried out garlic butter on the main piece of meat, no she'll picks or extra tools to help, main claw shelled on top all identical to the other on the table all pointing to them not being fresh. The meal... More

What a haven from the wind and rain, we turned up without a booking and as luck would have it they had a cancellation so a table was available. Really well thought out menu and wine list with plenty of interesting choices. Enjoyed our lunch which was extremely well presented, a slight hiccup on the order which was immediately rectified...

This is the second time we have visited this restaurant and we were not disappointed. We were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff. We were seated immediately and our drinks order was taken. I am a Coeliac and my meal was adapted to my needs. The scallops were delicious and the Monk fish was truly the best. Definitely 5... More

A party of 12 most be a challenge for any restaurant - but Little Gloster handled it without any fuss and we were made to feel so welcome. Everyone commented o how good the food was and some thought that it was the best restaurant they had ever been to! Cheap - no - but you can't do this sort... More

Had an absolutely excellent lunch here over Valentines Weekend. The staff were very nice and very helpful, the location is absolutely lovely and overlooks the sea, and the food was really very hard to fault! I could really recommend the smoked haddock chowder - full of fish and very delicious. However everything we had was really excellent. I don't eat... More

Tina Turner had obviously been here to eat - the definite inspiration for that song! I have now eaten her a few times, each time seems to be better than the last! A fantastic variety of sublime food, flavour freshness, presentation cannot be faulted! The view is also awesome, particularly on a Sunday brunch watching the dinghys and on Cowes... More
