The pizza was amazing although I couldn't taste much pancetta on mine which came with pepperoni, mushrooms and peppers too. The place was quite loud too but it was a Saturday night. Starter and desert was fab and the staff were all friendly and helpful.

I ate here with a friend, just before Christmas. It was busy, but the service was great and the food was fantastic. There was a lively, cosy atmosphere. I will definitely be going back.

We live in Cowes and would of loved Coast to have been one of our favourite local restaurants. However I'm sad to say we have had many bad experiences ranging from reservations being forgotten despite being made weeks in advance. To food poisoning through bad mussels and absolutely no apology when ww confronted them the following day. Staff attitude is... More

We went in and even though we hadn't booked got a table. Very attentive staff. We had been previously and enjoyed the food so were looking forward to it. The steak was stringy. I had lovely pork belly but small portions for the price and the whitebait for the other member of our party was served 10 minutes after the... More

A popular restaurant with good food. Sadly, because it is so popular and crammed with many small tables, the noise level is much too high. I had to shout across a table for 2 and there was not enough space for the water jug which had to be put on the floor.

Staff are always attentive without being intrusive. Food consistently good. Great atmosphere. Have eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner here, not on the same day, and often drop in just for a coffee, which is excellent.

I live in Cowes 10 minutes walk from this trendy eaterie. This was my second visit (I can cook most of the things they serve so never really felt the need) - my first was for a cup of Americano. This latest visit was to discuss business for a few hours. The venue itself is very pleasant, relaxed with friendly... More

Good service and food well presented are the two positives. Had some potato skins - undercooked, burger and chips. Burger ok ish but the chips had been round the frier more than once - dry and wrinkled.

Lovely place, nice food , reasonably priced and SO WELCOMING! The staff is exceptional ! They are all so kind ! We had breakfast and dinner many times and we never have been disappointed.The decorum is cosy (some would say shabby chic ?)... a nice touch bringing some fresh air to Cowes dining scene. Anyone could find food they like...... More

Had two dinners in Coast Bar & Dining Room and both were great. The venison was particularly good.The place is buzzing, even on cold nights in January, so would advise booking in advance. Have to admit that the tables are a little small and close together, but this didn't spoil the overall experience.
