Busy, vibrant restaurant

A very busy vibrant restaurant. Wide varied menu, Food was very good. We were a party of 8 of whom some found the music a little loud and the lighting too dark! Good atmosphere.

Booked a table for four friends, sadly it as Cowes week so very busy. Mix up with tables when we arrived but was sorted. We ordered two started to share which were great. We then ordered three pizzas and one catch of the day. Once served the catch of the day was cold as the pizzas were obvisouly not ready... More

This has such a lovely setting, really relaxed and well thought out. Lots on offer and a good selection of specials including fresh catch of the day which was Sea Bass when we were there and really delicious too. Have to say that overall it was a great evening, nice Kiwi Sauvignon and not too expensive. My only slight criticism... More

Had a great lunch. Two steaks cooked perfectly to order, one pizza, scallops and two portions of garlic bread. All had a great time.

My favourite restaurant in Cowes, I have visited with many different friends from the mainland and everybody has commentedon how great the food and atmosphere is. I've never had an "average" night in Coast, the food has always been excellent and the wide variety of different customers has made for many a fun evening!

Seeking shelter from the storm (as Bob Dylan said) on a very wet day in Cowes we ducked into The Coast bar for a quick lunch. It looks fairly recently refurbished, or converted from a shop or pub, and has that "exposed brick, bare floor" look. The place was crowded and from overhearing conversations around us quite a lot of... More

We have always meant to stop here but never have, we were so pleased we did today. We had a lovely lunch crab bruschetta to start followed by the most wonderful pizzas cooked in a wood fired oven. The restaurant has a very warm and cosy feel and the staff, service, staff and prices all very good. We will be... More

From the outside perhaps looks like a fairly regular modern pub with food. Actually very impressive. Food was imaginative, well prepared and presented. Pan seared scallops, minted pea puree and black pudding was excellent. Although they were very busy the service was first class. In many restaurants staff waste time with the large tables who never know what they want,... More
