A light lunch

Sharing a light lunch on a table outside watching the world go by!!!! A great place to relax and enjoy the sun and fresh air. A light lunch at a reasonable price...just have to make sure the seagulls don't get any A good spot for tourists too.

This is simple honest cooking. We had a great, casual dinner here and came back for a yummy breakfast. Staff were friendly and helpful. Quirky but very comfortable restaurant. Coffee is decent too.

Taste of the food is good. Portion given also big. Easy to find as it located along the roundabout. Service is good also. Overall good place to have dinner or lunch or even breakfast. Recommended.

After a stroll around Cowes we decided to check this place out. The service was quite poor. They only take cash to start with. Then I struggled to actually get served. When I asked for a minor modification to the dish (chips instead of salad) I got a horrified look. They wouldn't give me a glass for the drink I... More

Fantastic selection of breakfast dishes. Reasonably priced. A few wasps hanging around the outside tables. Plenty of tables inside. Always busy.

Having been here a few times my wife and I called in for a late light lunch.I ordered the smoked salmon focaccia.Unfortunately the focaccia seemed more like a bun that you,d get with a hamburger and it was slightly burnt.Also we were harassed by 2 determined sparrows.Lovely ambience still but seems to have gone off the pace a bit

We had breakfast ( bacon & eggs, tomatoes) here the food was good BUT served on a cold plate so it gets cold quick. Friendly service, outdoor seating, seagulls waiting for leftovers but can't be helped. The price is was not to bad, enjoyed the food..

I would not go back to Gullivers if I was paid. Upon entering this excuse of an eatery not once were we greeted or acknowledged. We were served very abruptly and told we were to put sugars in the coffee ourselves. We then explained we wanted our coffees in take away cups, the cashier then agreed to pop the sugars... More

I think not great is a polite way to sum this dump up. Very very very ordinary. Staff were friendly enough but the food and drink quality needs a helluva lot of work. I think the owners need to start getting the basics right and build up from the bottom... because at the moment they cannot sink any lower.

It appeared that this business may have recently been sold it seemed disorganised. Too few staff. Long wait times. Don't even start me on the toilets - filthy. Hopefully however just teething problems since is a great location. We had breakfast there.
