Anniversary dinner, tagged ourselves on Facebook, get sent 2 glasses of Prosecco!!!

After a last minute decision to go out we popped in and they accommodated us even though they were obviously busy, we had a drink, ordered food then got the free drinks! Excellent pizza, good humoured friendly staff, well recommended.

The building and way this restaurant/wine bar is decked out is fabulous. It is definitely one of the best venues to sit and eat in on the Island. The decor, surroundings and comfort of the place is bang on. Sadly, the food and service doesn't match the facade. Apart from a burger (which I am a tad bored of now)... More

Whenever I'm in Cowes I'm always drawn to this place & having dined at most of the outlets in Cowes this one fails to disappoint. My friends, partner & myself have enjoyed coffee, drinks, breakfast, lunch, snacks & dinner here several times & it always gets it right. Casual comfortable informal & reasonable prices. Great music, attentive service & usually... More

We visited a number of restaurants during our trip to cowes for the Round the Island weekend. Many other restaurants failed to cope with large numbers of people, undercooked the food in a rush and did not live up to expectations. The Coast bar was excellent- the service, food, wine were spot on and the prices reasonable with a good... More

Recently picked this restaurant after reading reviews on here for my mum's 60th birthday. We had 2 children with us so ate early. They accommodated our party early in the evening and all food and service was good. Did feel slightly rushed as our table was required after us which we knew upon reserving and reminded throughout dinner. Over all... More

Great tasting coffee in relaxed, café bar surroundings and enjoyed whilst cushioned on a soft leather sofa just watching the world go by. Very appropriate background music enhancing the ambiance. Two coffees and a fresh pot of peppermint tea later ... and it was suddenly lunchtime. We decided we needed only a small light and chose their Cajun spiced chicken... More

They have a way of making you feel like number one, I have had a number of meals here and they always make you feel great. The food is first class and I have never had a complaint. Keep up the good work, a big thank you to all the staff.

This sophisticated and modern dining room blew Cowes into the twenty-first century with a fine changing menu of well prepared and presented food. Good service, good wine list and well trained knowledgeable wait staff make this place a pleasure to come to every time. You'll need a reservation most nights though... worth the phone call.

I visited with my daughter on her 19th Birthday on our way home from the I O W Festival. I booked here because of previous good reviews and I wasn't disappointed. Normally when I eat out I am disappointed and feel I could have done better myself. On this occasion I was plesently surprised. The decor and atmosphere were nice,... More

This is a lovely place set in the heart of Cowes. We arrived and weare seated on a very cramped table, there wasn't enough room for our glasses etc once the meal came out. Elbows were all touching each other and it was difficult to eat. The food was however of a good quality, fresh and tasty. The pizza and... More
