Visiting family on the island who had eaten here before. Had a lovely table outside, close to the sea with beautiful views. Cocktail list was imaginative and drinks delicious. We expected to wait a while for food, but when it arrived it was all perfectly cooked. Catch of the day, plaice, was superb and accompanying chips with truffle oil and... More

Visited on a Saturday evening to celebrate the first night of our honeymoon, having booked in March I was hoping to have the best table but this wasn't the case. We were seated next to a very disruptive family who had children that were running around continually which didn't create the best atmosphere for a romantic night out. We ordered... More

Stunning views, excellent service and brilliant food. We had no booking and even though they were busy they slotted us in, it helped that it was a beutiful day so the views made it even more special, can not wait to return.

We had 2 meals here, lunch and breakfast. Both were very nice, lovely food. However we thought the breakfast was outstanding. The food was great, the service was great and the location was superb. I can't think of when we have had such an amazing breakfast, sitting outside and enjoying the views.

We ate lunch in a fairly empty dining room on a lovely sunny day. The inside of the restaurant is stylish and well decorated and has great views over the Solent. The food was very good, nicely presented, innovative and tasty. The service was mixed and slightly disappointing for a place of this price range. I was served a salad... More

Superb breakfast menu with friendly staff. Excellent location overlooking the sea. Both meals were fantastic and special mention of the attention to detail. Going back tomorrow for breakfast.

The restaurant is clearly very popular. I was a guest of some friends celebrating their 1st wedding anniversary. I called ahead to order some champagne, and there had been some slight confusion over the reservation time. I was informed 7.30pm from my hosts only to find when I was ordering the champagne it was actually 7.00pm. When I confirmed there... More

We went with friends recently for Sunday lunch. The restaurant is very modern looking with large open windows giving views on to the sea and bleached pine tables. The service was very friendly and the food excellent. I had the stuffed courgette flower which was divine and the others red mullet with squid which I was told equally good. Most... More
