Dinner after a boat trip out

Dinner was excellent! Family of 4 adults and 2 children (6 and 8) plus the greyhound were all welcomed in. Children very much enjoyed their pizzas, older one had an adult size one and ate the lot. Recommend booking during peak season and a lovely place for food.

The relaxed atmosphere, pleasant and attentive staff, and delicious pizza made a business trip to the Isle of Wight so much more bearable. The pizzas were thin and crispy from the wood fired oven, and the chocolate brownie was rich and gooey. Delicious

We had read reviews on Trip Advisor for places to have breakfast in Cowes, this stood out. We were visiting Cowes on Saturday with friends, headed straight to The Coast Bar, only a 5 min walk from the terminal. It's an attractive looking venue with outdoor seating both out the front and to the rear. Inside the décor is very... More

We visited coast on a family holiday and really enjoyed it. The food was good all round and the service was excellent too. I'd be wary that they didn't seem to have much in the way of a children's menu as far as we could see but this didn't matter much to us as the children with us eat everything... More

Visited The Coast Bar on a sunny Sunday evening for my birthday treat from the hubby. Well what a birthday treat indeed! After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor my husband decided to book this place. It lived up to expectations. The food was so fresh and seasoned very well, the waitresses here are very friendly and accommodating. We ordered starters... More

Popped into this restaurant for an afternoon snack following an afternoon sailing. The place is decorated in a modern/antique style, staffed with pretty and young waiting staff, trendy soundtrack playing on the background. The menu offers a bit of everything: daily specials, dishes to share, starters, mains (including burger), pretty desserts, alcoholic drinks and a great selection of teas! We... More
