Popped in for a quick coffee/drink on a Monday mid morning. A few tables filled, ours was sticky, crumby and stained. Decor is rustic verging on grubby. Asked for a menu, which was promptly presented but only listed breakfast items - no drinks. Ordered two Americano and one juice. Juice was basic, from carton and came with half a glassful... More

Went on a busy Friday evening, but even though the place was packed, we had excellent, prompt service and the food was delightful. Good quality food, good value, good wine list, good service. Would definitely visit again if I return to Cowes.

It was a Friday night and it was busy. Busy can = a bit noisy but don't let that put you off. There is noisy and noisy and this was noisy but acceptably noisy; fun noisy; quite jolly noisy and that along with good food, good wine and good company makes a place worth visiting. The only negative was that... More

We booked this restaurant after finding it on the internet and we were not disappointed. We were shown to our table situated on the first floor and our drinks order was taken straight away. Soon after our food order was taken and each course arrived in good time but not rushed like in a number of other restaurants we have... More

My spatchcock chicken was the best ever, so so moist. My sister had two fishy starters and said it was the best she'd ever had! There were 8 of us, we had a little wait for food, totally understandable, but the Kids enjoyed watching their pizza's being handmade! Thank you guys and girls we loved Coast!

After strolling around Cowes decided to eat here. Good decision, lovely restaurant, great food. Sat in the garden as it was sunny, had the crab bruschetta and figs and Parma ham to start, the seafood risotto and sea bass with chorizo for mains, all excellent.

I had spaghetti with seafood; my husband had the rib-eye steak. Both were presented in a delicate layout. Good chef, we both polished our pates. I had hot chocolate brownie and cream; my husband had ice cream. Again, we weren't disappointed. We are both very impressed with the staff, who can manage so well in such a busy environment. The...

Wandered in around 1pm on a Sunday and got a table straight away. The food is not cheap but if you're the sort of person who doesn't mind paying a bit more than you'd pay in your standard Beafeater type place then you will not be disappointed. I had their burger and my partner had the roast beef. Beautifully cooked... More

We chose this as a birthday celebration for one of our crew during Cowes Week. They were understandably very busy, although the service was friendly and attentive, but the food took some time. Even so, it was very good. I wouldn't usually order chicken in a restaurant (to influenced by Anthony Bourdain most likely!) but the spatchcock chicken proved me... More
