This small, cosy restaurant is hidden away in a corner on Bath Street. The menu is literally only 3/4 choices which is great as sometimes you can be overwhelmed by too much on a menu. Food is really fresh, service is good and all in...More

A great restaurant with wonderful food. A small menu - matches the restaurant! But the food is really good and the staff are friendly and welcoming. A visit to Cowes is not complete without a meal here.

I wandered in one night on the expenses account and wasn’t expecting much but I was seriously impressed. The beef ragu starter packed a serious punch and the lamb main was delicious! Highly recommended !

This restaurant is one of our favourites anywhere. Food is beautifully cooked and presented. The menu is imaginative but not pretentious and the atmosphere is warm and friendly. I’d eat there every day if I could get away with it!

A real gem, slightly hidden away at the top of the High Street. Lovely husband and wife team who produce amazing food in a lovely room. The beef ragu pasta was as good as I have had anywhere - wanted to lick the plate. Good...More
