We ate here last week with our teenage daughter and niece. We all enjoyed our meals. The entree of mixed mezze was awesome. The service was quick and friendly. Enjoyed our experience here. Pricing was reasonable at $195 for 4 with wine. (Bit disappointed that they didn't have the local Pinot Gris as it was out of stock).

Definitely pays to book, as people catching on. Service was excellent from the minute you walked in. Not a large menu, but covers all bases. Great pizzas and pastas as well as others choices. Arguably, the best food in Cowes

We bought the kids to the Island for lunch after previously coming here for an anniversary dinner. Great service, delicious food and the kids licked their plates clean. Thank you for another wonderful experience.

Brilliant food, friendly staff and the decency to store a couple of dozen beers in their fridge for us for later on! Don't go past the pizza breads and tapas to start. 5 stars.

We had dinner here late March 2014 before heading off to see the Penguins. The restaurant has a lovely ambiance to it, very comfortable and warm, great lighting. The food was very tasty. We had the following dishes: - Crispy calamari (salt and pepper) - very tasty, great batter. $15 - Wood fired garlic prawns with chorizo, napoli sauce &... More

Wonderful food and a sophisticated atmosphere. Came here with friends and was quite pleased with both the food and the service. It did take a while to get our meals though but it was quite busy at the time

Really good restaurant ! The atmosphere is really nice and the food really good :) I took a pizza and it was amazing directly from the oven wood. The service was not really present but otherwise it was a good place

A lovely restaurant; we had the tapas platter as a shared appetizer between two and by the time we were done, we were full and satisfied, and almost dreaded our main course which was too good not to put away. Good wholesome food.
