Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Based on the brilliant reviews we booked a table for lunch on 17th May by email which was confirmed with a booking reference. So disappointed when we turned up to find the place completely deserted. Contacted owners to find out what happened but no reply....Very unprofessional and a waste of an afternoon.More

Absolutely amazing, a whole new experience from last year. They have definitely done the right idea and made the right changes to the menu. The fish tacos oh my word, outstanding. Interesting to see a lamb burger on the menu which we was going to...pick but opted for the Thai fish broth. Flavoursome and very tasty. Drinks were superior and cocktails made with flair. Service was top notch. Will be returning very soon and a very food experience for us all. Would like to see an online booking system to make things easier for when we come again.More

Called in ad-hoc for lunch, we had a salmon and prawn salad and a salmon and crab salad, both were absolutely delicious! The service was prompt and friendly, we were made to feel very welcome even though we were lugging our folding bikes around with...us! Would definitely recommend a visit here, the portions are large and the views are stunning!More

What a find. We had been looking forward to this and were pleased to be able to rebook as our initial booking was cancelled due to the Great British weather . Can't fault this place. Super smiley staff and menu full of tasty treats. We...went for the fishy picnic and the crab & salmon salad. I could quite happily have eaten the bisque all day. Stunning flavours. Our lunches both had a delicious side salad - not a limp leaf in sight (unlike so many places that dish up a sorry excuse for a salad.) Went for a dessert as well and these were also excellent. We've been coming to the IOW for the last 3 years and have eaten at many of the 'best' restaurants on the island as well as the mainland and can honestly say this is by far the best meal we've had on the IOW and one of the best lunches we've ever had . We will definitely be back to try out some of the other choices and cocktails too Lovely to go somewhere that is clearly fuelled by a passion for excellent food and service .More

Went there on a Sunday afternoon. Sun was shining. Food, drink and service was great. Live music from a mariachi band. 4 adults and 4 kids all enjoyed their meals. Would highly recommend

Lovely spot for a coffee. Food looked good, but too ‘fishy’ for me (Vegetarian). The staff were friendly, but the service was slow, we only ordered drinks, but they took over half an hour to be served!

What a fantastic place! We tried to visit Monday but the great rain caused the Beach Hut to close, we weren’t really given that much notice on the cancellation which was a bit disappointing as we could have ventured somewhere else. Anyway, we rebooked for...Friday (our last day visiting) and hoped for better weather. The sun was shining and the beach hut was worth the wait! Great service, busy and attentive staff, lovely drinks and the food was amazing! Huge portions, we looked around at what others had and I would recommend the platters over the other options. My only criticism is that the umbrellas on the bottom terrace could do with being about 2 or 3 inches shorter as to not block the view from the Astro but the Astro seating was much more comfortable looking so it swings in roundabouts!More

Lovely location, ambience and view. Friendly staff, and decent food. Limited choice for kids, and highly overpriced salad .. hence the score. Shame that so many restaurants disincentivise healthy eating. Still lovely restaurant that deserves a visit!
