I love this place. My partner and I visit regularly and never leave disappointed. The food is lovely although being a vegetarian means only a few options to chose from. Cocktails delicious and service always attentive and pleasant. We came in here last after a long day of shopping across the water and it was the perfect place to sit... More

A restaurant is an hollistic experience. A cocktail of ambiance, friendliness, professionalism, stylish surroundings, relaxation, great food and unobtrusive but attentive service. All wrapped up in a napkin of good value. Many restaurants fail at one or several of these. Take Mojacs in Cowes - great food, very dull room that has had a style by-pass. I wouldnt choose to...

The food, atmosphere and staff were all very nice; I would encourage everyone to seek this place out and I will book a table when I next go to the island.

Enjoyed a really nice lunch in this very relaxed but professionally run restaurant. The staff were very friendly and the food was inventive and freshly made. The restaurant floor was busy with a really good atmosphere prevailing. Will certainly look to return when I am back in the area.

Just had a lovely Pizza today from a varied menu with something for everyone including the kids. Great atmosphere created by the staff and only 9 miles from Fishbourne so not too far to travel from the Wightlink Ferry Terminal. Good wine list too - very good value for money. Thanks Guys!

Food was enjoyable, well presented and to a high standard. Service was attentive and friendly at all times, which... More

Had a quick dinner here as we were visiting friends - but I can say this place really does lovely food - and the sweet potato fries were addictive! Only complaint was the place felt a little cold - and the staff felt slightly robotic - but I'm guessing they've got their rules and regulations...
