Great restaurant and atmosphere. Only trouble is that you do have to wait quite a while for your table even when you have booked. However, if you can accept that, it is good value for your money. DO NOT like the fact that dogs are allowed!!.

I am lucky to live near to this most enjoyable restaurant. Busy though out the year and always with a buzz. Having visited most of the Cowes restaurants this in the top 3 for consistency of reasonable food. Menu is a little limited but what they do is normally good.

This was the first time on our holiday that we decided to head over to Cowes and we soon discovered that - as it was Monday night - most places were shut. As we got into our "we'll take whatever we can find" mood we happened across The Coast. The food was lovely, staff were very hospitable and they even... More

After too many cheese baguettes for lunch and some horrible pub dinners in Cowes, I was excited to try a nicer place in The Coast. This restaurant was so fantastic that I ate there two nights in a row with friends. Be sure to make a reservation as this place fills up on all nights. The food was fantastic especially... More

Saturday lunch. Sat down, and within minutes our order was being taken. Really nice personable and cheerful waitress. Drinks came nice and quickly, and food arrived in good time. Pizza and Brochetta. Sensibly priced, all tasty, and an all round success. No hesitation going back here any time.

We were recommended to this restaurant whilst in cowes. We sat outside and had a lovely lunch with a bottle of Pinot Grigio blush. The pizza was delicious and the crab bruschetta very nice indeed. Excellent service, nothing too much trouble. I asked gor a cushion for my back and was quickly brought two. We thought it was very reasonably... More

Other places in town are not consistent ie opening times, new eating establishments have ratings on here that are untrue!

Our table for 11 was booked a number of weeks in advance by telephone and an inside table requested for our hen party. When a phone call was made the night before to check the table booking and to confirm the numbers we were told there was no booking!!! Apparently a new computerised booking system had replaced the telephone bookings... More
