The candle bill must be huge here as it seems they need them every minute they are open, I can see this having a romantic air in the evening but is just weird in the daytime. The darkness, the brick walls and the eerie glow of the wood oven make for a crematorium feel to this depressing establishment. The food... More

The Coast Bar is a cosy bar/restaurant with a modern interior and a fantastic atmosphere! We dined here for lunch and dinner with a party of six and we all thought the food and service was extremely good! The menu is varied with something for everyone and they have a super wood fired oven serving proper pizza and breads. After... More

Our first visit; other members of the family had eaten there and booked the 'Coast' for a family celebration. The venue is quite quirky and a lot of thought has gone into making it a little different. Age range for our party was six to 'very mature' and everybody immediately felt at home. Attentive service & they didn't turn a... More

Visited with two friends for a birthday meal. Service was slow and owing to several large parties the restaurant was exceptionally noisy. The bread for the starter was adequate however two out of the three mains were not well cooked and were left unfinished. The waitress was told of the problems but this elicited no response either from her or... More

Went with a group of friends on a busy Friday night. The place was packed - so it is quite loud. The service was excellent as was the food. A good selection - I went for the burger and chips, friends went for the venison - all well cooked, presented and tasty. The panna cotta was better than mine! So... More

Seven of us went to dinner. The vibe is great. The service was friendly and efficient. Our starters arrived quickly and were very good. My crab bruschetta was fab. The hummas was homemade and bang on. Slight quibble with the calamari being a little greasy. Main courses, I had smoked fish cakes with fries and wilted spinach. The fries were... More

We ate at this friendly, relaxed and well supported bar/bistro place in Cowes this week and also had breakfast and coffee there a couple of times. The food was not especially fussy, and was well put together and presented by helpful young staff. Can get very busy with a real buzz at weekends. Head & shoulders above most other places... More

I've been to The Coast many times and would previously have recommended it to anyone,however the last two times have been a real disappointment. The food is still very good but the service has gone downhill, and as a regular I know it wasn't down to new staff. I was in a group with 5 friends, it took over 30... More
