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

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

Slightly strange experience, felt a bit uncomfortable at times - the chef was very friendly but the lady who owned the restaurant seemed to be a bit on edge & big problem with condensation which made us feel quite claustrobic. Would have to really think twice before going back. Shame as the food was very good.

Although our first impressions were poor, with the front of house lady being pleasant but not that friendly we ended up having a lovely evening. It was a shame that the waitress couldn't accommodate my husbands request for peas or beans rather than mixed green vegetables. However the venison starter was superb aa was the crab mousse and the monkfish... More

The food was delicious. Wine in my opinion was over priced. Service good portions for me a little small.
