The hotel cowes is in a great location and was very busy. The mains we ordered were just average but quite expensive, the service was good but when we went to pay we were overcharged by $35.00,there was no real apology either. I know it was busy but this should not happen, I've learnt good to check your receipt at... More

Lucky to snaffle a table outside on the footpath. Girl who looked after us was brilliant; she got all our drinks and took our food order. Food was all good. Passing parade was good people watching.

This is a perfect place to experience lackluster Australian service and not so good food -- at prices that should command a lot more. This restaurant is obviously resting on its beach promenade location because lining up for drinks and dealing with servers that don't have a clue about the menu is not worth the prices being charged. Don't sit... More

I'd love to say we had a great experience here... But I can't.... Why ?Because we called and called and called you trying to order takeaway but couldn't get through. Was the number on your menu we grabbed when we walked past so we know we called the right number. After an hour of trying ... I gave up and... More

The Dough is too thick and raw. Too much cheese and too much oregano in the Margherita. Capricciosa had too much items and poor quality ingredients. ROLL OUT THE PIZZA MORE THAN THAT!!!!

Probably hasn't if the number of people attending is anything to go by. Frankly, it has some terrific qualities in décor, design and layout. It's a cool place no doubt. Could do with a freshen up though and a serious clean. I know, pubs, which is exactly what this is, tend to have beer split everywhere and so it goes.... More

A beautiful day to sit outside and eat! I ordered the hotel beef burger. It was HUGE! Delish thick patties made from scratch! Such good flavor but it was way too much for me to finish the whole thing so I let my friend help me out. Some of the staff came to chat with me while I sat outside... More
