We stopped here for breakfast on the morning we returned to the mainland mainly due to the good reviews on here. We were not disappointed. The food was plentiful and delicious and the staff very friendly.

Great choice with friendly staff. There really is no need to go home hungry. Add good value for money and views out to sea and there is nothing to complain about.

Stopped off mid cycle ride for a drink and bite to eat, nice setting right on the sea front with attentive but not over baring staff. Food was a good portion although we only had a few snack dishes.

The breakfast is first class from ingredients to service. Good coffee and dog friendly too. Staff couldn't be more helpful, nothing is too much trouble for them. Certainly the... More

Amazing place to visit if you are in ventnor on the isle of wight, me and my wife visit regularly and they always try to accommodate my wife's dairy, tomato and strawberry allergies, they will change how they cook things to help.

A hungry family were more than satisfied with dinner with a sea view. Seafood on the menu, chose scampi. Café owners advertise local boat trips. A nice spot indeed.

Well what a little treasure this turned out to be the wife feeling hungry whilst on a day out (we live in Ryde) and this was the first we came to first impression was typical cafe style clean and pleasant enough with great views over the harbour/channel with the usual offerings of full English breakfast @ £5.99 but trust me...
