We had prebooked and pre-ordered our food as we were a large group of about 26 people. The food was tasty but unfortunately the service was abysmal. Drinks took over 30 minutes to arrive even though we had just ordered bottles of eine. The food was brought out with large gaps between meals but worst of all desert took over... More

After a long holiday of two weeks on the island we were awaiting the arrival of our ferry home, we had left reasonably early that morning and decided we needed something for breakfast and this beautifully designed restaurant was perfect! Admittedly the service was slower than we would have liked but the amazing atmosphere and the pleasantness of the young... More

We found this thanks to trip advisor and were looking for something a bit different to a pub where we could take our dog. The pretty garden out the back was a real find - it's small but nicely planted and has a Mediterranean feel. The service wasn't particularly quick although we assumed that this was because our food was... More

I had a steak, my friends fish and pork belly. The food was excellent. There was a small timing issue with dishes arriving more that 5 minutes apart but the place was heaving and the manager recognising the problem offered a round of drinks on the house and could not apologise enough. I would definitely go here again.

Stopped on the way past for a quick snack and a drink at lunch time on a Saturday and they were quite happy to accommodate us. We sat outside and ordered the mussels and mushroom soup. We then asked to move inside as it was getting chilly, the girl who served us was brilliant and was very happy to move... More

Lovely atmosphere, very relaxed and stylish. We didn't book but luckily got a table upstairs. Food was delicious, service was spot on and was reasonably priced. They are family friendly which was great, but I would love to see a small children's menu for next time we visit. When we're back in cowes we will definitely visit again.

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.
