Just happened to be on the Isle of Wight and had been told about this restaurant by people on the ferry last year, so thought we would see if they had any free tables as know they get booked up!! Well it was 5.55 pm (they open at 6.00 pm) and the doors were open and one table was occupied.... More

Went on Wednesday for first sitting 630 and we all had chateaubriand. It is delicious and is shared between 2. You get salad and fries and a selection of sauces to choose from. I have to say before when people use to say lets go I use to think why would I go out and cook my own food but... More

This is a well-established restaurant in Yarmouth that does one simple idea very well - hot stone cooking or Pierrade. There is a choice of beef and seafood eg prawns, scallops, swordfish. It's not a huge selection but it's enough. It has a great atmosphere and is suitable for families or groups of friends. The staff are very friendly and... More

The Good lady dined here on Saturday night. Great concept choose you meat and you get unlimited fries and salad. The meat is of good quality and the staff are great. Only little downside I don't like working for my dinner as you have to cook your own meat on a hot rock, but that's my fault for not researching... More

A great experience - cook your choice of steak, tuna, swordfish or prawns on a big hunk of heated rock. The sizzling creates a buzz around the restaurant. Think it was £21 for sirloin and add £6 for surf n turf. This was a typical price for steak in the area. Desserts were lovely too but they quickly disappear off... More

We had a great night out here with family celebrating a special wedding anniversary. We all ordered the sirloin steak and none of us were disappointed. Beautifully tender, IOW beef which tasted amazing, and obviously cooked to perfection as we could cook it just as we liked it. Each mouthful was perfectly hot & eaten straight off of the granite...

This is a lovely resturant were the food is brought to the table for you to cook on a hot rock. Lovely atmosphere and polite friendly staff. We had the mixed fish which was excellent with a bottomless bucket of fries which my son loved!
