I had the misfortune of going to number 3 in cowes on Friday of last week never again!!! The service was sullen and unhelpful, the food appalling! The lamb was supposed to be served pink but it came out overcooked and tough the vegetables were the opposite, the broccoli so hard you could barely get the knife through it and... More

this is an extremely small restaurant ( no more than ten small tables ). its location is very convenient. All of the food was excellent. The atmosphere is somewhat unusual as it is clearly a family owned business with a little bit of a Fawlty Towers vibe to it. I would definitely go again. It is not like any other... More

Friends treated us to a meal here tonight. Small and friendly. Food was superb, well presented and delicious. Bread had beetroot in it which was different but very tasty.

Consistently high quality food - as good as any michelen starred place. We have been to Number on quite a few occasions now and it never fails to please. The portions are generous but not too filling and its just very well cooked and delicious food.

Small restaurant serving great food. Fantastic service which is friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Best to book to be sure of a table.

I visited Number 3 with friends at the end of Cowes Week, they were very busy (as you'd expect) but we had a lovely night. We weren't rushed - we had the table for the night, and found the atmosphere to be buzzing and lively. The food was super - we shared amongst us various starters including venison with beetroot,...

As Barbara's comments below, except she forgot to mention the wine! The Rose was acceptable although slightly expensive for what it was, however, the White was totally unacceptable at £50+ bottle.

Having read some of the other reviews, only one can be about the restaurant we went to on Thursday of Cowes week, our 3rd choice as both Mojac's and Murrays were full - should have been enough of a warning that No. 3 had space! Had seen it several times before and thought the menu looked interesting. We are not... More

Many times we have walked past and tried for a table but always disappointed as they are always full, but we booked ahead this time and now know why they are so busy. Food was top notch, service was top notch. prices were what you would expect from a quality restaurant. Menu was small but offered good choice. definitely the... More
