“worth the wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

they were busy as they had a large group to feed but it doesnt mean other diners suffer for it, we went for lunch and was told a 20 minute wait which ended being 40 minutes, our lunch was delicious would go back

“Rumbles #1”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

This is one of the only places in Cowes (which I live) that I can eat without being sick. I'm immune deficient and love to eat here knowing that they handle food correctly. Love the menu, heeps of choices and the specials are great to indulge in. They cater for even the fussiest eaters such as myself and still have a smile..........Love Rumbles

“Average. And That's Being Generous.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

We came in here for late lunch after seeing the 85% rating on Urbanspoon. It's Cowes, we paid $15 per meal. We did not expect culinary greatness. We did not expect however, to wait 30 minutes in a not busy cafe, for what was described as beef pie topped with mash, to turn up in a bowl & more resembling baby food than anything else. Best thing about our visit on this occasion were the crazy menus!

“Big, fresh & tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

Had lunch at this little place tucked away at the end of an arcade. Food was superb, servings were generous and the service prompt. Worth discovering.
