No passion in the team , no systems in place , terrible service , slow with the coffee, undercooked food, tinned food, white bread........ Need I say more.. This place has to be the best position in Cowes with a lovely building to boot.. This should be a gold mine and busy beyond belief , but I am afraid a change of management would be its only saving grace. Pitty it has a certain charm........

We have got a light lunch and we are satisfied. The fish combo had a very good brochette with scallop, prawn, squid and fish and was very good. The ambiance is nice and we also had woodfire close to us. Maybe a bit expensive for what we have got. Service on average, nothing remarkable

If this place wasn't situated on the most prominent corner in the heart of the CBD it would of closed down ages ago.

The care factor of the team here is low and it is reflected in everything they touch...from the poorly made tasteless coffee, greasy food, messy unwiped tables, and the I don't want to be here attitude of the staff.
We had coffee delivered to our table...I request sugar? "It's over there" the waitress responds in a gruff - get it yourself style tone as she walked away from our table...and no, she wasn't busy. And I'm not suprised.
Plenty of options for a good coffee and meal within a minutes walk of here...My advice...keep walking!
