Good food, including a wide choice of vegetarian dishes.
Friendly service.
Good selection of wine, but a bit pricey!

We didn't knew really where to go in Cowes, but this was an excellent choice. The people were very nice and so friendly! The food was really good, and for a good price. We got our food quickly and the service was very helpfull and nice. There was nice music on the background but definetly not too loud. It's a cosy and lovely place to eat!

I wanted to book for valentine's night but didn't want a faux, overpriced menu so I phoned the Red Duster and they were doing the normal menu, however, they were full! They took my name and said if there was a cancellation they would phone, the following night they did just that and we booked. We were greeted with a very cheerful staff and a glass of champagne, and also told to take the Rose from the table. There were two menus one table d'hote, the other a la carte. We could have a two course from the first for a very reasonable £16.95 or pick and choose from either. We chose whitebait in paprika flour, followed by chicken with bacon on lyonais potatoes, both were superb and served really hot. There was no rush, no hassle and the right amount of humour. All in all a perfect night.
