We always find a night to come here when we are on the island.

Fantastic meat and a novel way of eating it. The included-and-unlimited sides are great (chips, which go cold but you can ask for more, and salad) but the meat is the main event. We also love the puddings: the cheese board is fab and the sticky toffee pudding everything it should be. Plus there's always service with a smile.

Go. You won't regret it. Unless you're a veggie. Then you will definitely regret it.

The simplicity of this restaurant, hot stones and cook your own food, always amazes me and it is carried out so well. The quality of the meats and fish is very high and the endless supplies of fries and salad is great. Top that with scrummy desserts and the friendly/ efficient service and you have a great restaurant.

We visit here once a year, when we visit the Isle of Wight for my birthday.

It’s the highlight of our long weekend, and never disappoints. Chateaubriand, scallops and prawns, and as much Greek salad and fries as you want.

Lovely atmosphere on a chilly February evening. Just fab!

Good service, fun dining cooking your own meat and fish on a hot stone.
Only criticism would be the cheap bottled sauces served in little plastic pots! Spoils the presentation and taste of the food. Small ramekin dishes aren’t too expensive amd would make a big difference. As would a couple of decent Home made sauces.
