Good lunch

Had a good lunch here on Sunday. The staff were attentive and food was good. The place was busy and had a good atmosphere we didn't book but would probably be an idea as we were just luck to get a table

Went here on an off-chance during a day trip to the Isle of Wight. Lovely, clean venue tucked away all of 10 minutes walk from the ferry terminal on Cowes high st. Food was very good; a combination of excellent seafood and great steaks all reasonably priced. Best thing is the staff who were attentive, cheerful and ready ot help... More

I've written reviews of The Coast before. But this venue evolves; the owners are always makingit a bit better, refining this, replacing that. For me, a restaurant is an experience which should touch all of the senses. This elastic criteria includes, in equal measure: atmosphere, how the staff make you feel, decor, food, service, value and the x factor which... More

Popped in for a quick spritzer and as usual, loved it. Great atmosphere, people my age so felt at home. Very busy so book ahead if you wish to eat. This couple have really worked hard to get this off the ground. Hats off to them, a real must for anyone visitng Cowes.

What a find right on the high street but be warned you need to book so you dont miss out. Great interior and caters for all from hungry sailors to the little ones. Varied menu and food very good indeed for both lunch and evening together with great staff and great atmosphere!

A great find! Excellent food & wine selection served by attentive young staff in a casual atmosphere. Obviously it is a successful and popular place right now in Cowes and I am sure will remain so as they do everything right! Serves everything from nibbles to complete 3 course meals of quality and variation. Pizza kiln too!

We are fast growing to be regular customers of this friendly and comfortable bar/restaureant. The last two visits have been for breakfast and in both cases were great experiences. Lovely food, most locally sourced - all freshly prepared, good coffee and delightful service. Welcoming, dog friendly, and competent.

Whilst visiting Cowes we stopped at the Coast Bar and I must say we were most impressed by the friendly service and good food. Only one negative and that was the lack of a disabled toilet - two flights of narrow stairs to negotiate which was in constant use. Other than that I would definitely visit again.

We booked a meal at The Coast based on other people's reviews in Trip Advisor. Again, the power and usefulness of Trip Advisor. Earlier in the day, my wife had injured her ankle, but insisted we go out. Not feeling very well, she only wanted a starter. The staff were very solicitous and tried very hard to make her as...

We came here last night (Saturday) and ate upstairs which was a lovely room - downstairs was buzzing, looked good to either eat down there or just have a few drinks. Service was good, all the staff were really friendly and helpful with food options (they had obviously eaten the food themselves which is a good sign!). I had the... More
