Well cooked food served by friendly staff. All in a cosy little cabin with great sea views. Just a couple of yards from the beach.

There is a delightful incongruity between the appearance of this place - hut-like, plastic tables and chairs outside - and the food, which is fantastic, and the wine list, which is superb. What could possibly be nicer than guzzling on fresh lobster and chips by the sea, washing down your meal with a bottle of crisp white wine? They even serve Dom Perignon!

The staff are fantastic, though a little pressed at times, and the view wonderful. It's great value. Everyone should go.

This restaurant has recently 'changed hands'. The staff are young, keen and pay particular attention to detail to your needs.

Their seafood is caught daily by a local supplier (who we also purchased seafood platters from). Really couldn't fault the service, presentation and attentiveness.

This is also an incredibly 'child-friendly' restaurant with amazing views of Bembridge Lifeboat Station and the solent - brilliant for watching the huge liners departing from the mainland.

There is a small car park, which you have to pay for before 6pm and, at present, you need to use the public toilets in the same car park.
