Was initially impressed, had a lovely atmosphere and was nicely decorated although a little too dark. Things went downhill as there seemed to be bad communication between staff and we were asked the same questions several times by various staff member. My friends waited half an hour to receive the glasses of wine they ordered which was unnecessary as it... More

We've been coming here on and off ever since it opened - like most people in Cowes we were delighted to see a decent restaurant opening in the town after many years. Sadly it's gone downhill lately and is in dire need of a revamp. The menu is the same, tired one it started with several years ago (it's amazing... More

Stll the best in Cowes for food quality, service and atmosphere. Always our first option when we are in Cowes (which is a lot). However, dogs are allowed to wander around and annoy customers downstairs (and you don't want a table upstairs). Otherwise five star. But dogs have no place in a an establishment that sells food.

Popped into this restaurant - no booking - on a very busy lunchtime today. We were lucky because a table had just been vacated - what a treat. Lovely warm atmosphere, very friendly, superb food - what more could I ask? Will definitely be back.

As always the coast has it spot on! Fabulous Christmas menu at a very reasonable price for three courses. Cosy atmosphere with festive touches like crackers and decorations. Lovely evening thanks!

We visited on a Tuesday evening and it was nearly full, which we took as a good sign! The wine and food was lovely, the scallops were cooked to perfection. Our waitress was brilliant, nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely be visiting again, loved it.

Went for a spur of the moment lunch last Tuesday had a lovely meal but it was somewhat spoilt by the manager who had a rather abrupt attitude to us and other customers I believe his name was Sam [ not sure] would happily go again on his day off ......

Enjoyed a very tasty meal in a very popular restaurant. Seemed to be the most busy venue in Cowes on a Thursday evening in December. Well looked after by the friendly & helpful staff.

The wood burner and the Christmas tree both add to the atmosphere in the best of the Cowes bar/restaurants

We went here after we left Mojacs just for a drink. Atmosphere was buzzy and were impressed with Chris making cocktails (he didn't stint on the alcohol), my wife had a 'Long Island' which was lovely.
