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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Had a nice brunch here, wish we had had time to return. Coffee was good, full breakfasts great and the poached eggs lovely. I had waffles with strawberries which were really nice

Great place and friendly helpful staff. Couldn’t fault a thing. The kids meals were good sized portions , I had a fish finger sandwich and other half had a breakfast which were all good quality. We will definitely return.

I had the vegetarian breakfast and swapped the tomatoes for extra toast. The breakfast was lovely and tasty. My friends also enjoyed their waffles and yogurts.

Excellent bar/cafe to stop at for a light lunch. The crab sandwiches were good, but the scampi was fantastic. Happy kids = happy parents!

Had a takeaway as kids were playing in the adjacent splash pad. Scampi and onion rings were absolutely delicious and the kids demolished the chips. A tad pricey but very convenient for splash pad visit

Stopped off for a light lunch whilst walking the coastal path. A simple soup was delicious with loads of bread. Friendly manager and lovely setting made for a perfect stop. Totally recommended.

A visit to Besty’s is a must when we come to Ventnor. The service is superb as is the food. The gent who appears to run it is always friendly, efficient and remembers us every year. The full English breakfast is a must, and if...your arteries can handle it, have the fried bread too - delicious!More

So we have been a few times now and always had fantastic service....till today! The attitude of the girl that served us was absolutely shocking. Our order was all wring and when we called her over to discuss, we were told we were wrong and...we had what we ordered. We argued back with the menu, she disappeared and she never came back to discuss it with us. 15 mins later the missing items came out and the food we had already was cold. It pains me to say we won't be returning due to this which is so sad as the place is awesome!More

Perfect. It was like the med. Children played within sight of parents, while the grownups could enjoy a tasteful drink in the micro climate of the Ventnor botanic Gardens. Some lovely local drinks on offer. Divine. Everyone was happy and we could have been anywhere...exotic in the world, it would have felt just the same. Highly recommend.More

The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Our daughter put what we all thought was salt on her lunch, it turned out someone had put sugar in the shaker as joke. When we made the staff aware they couldn’t apologise or do enough...to make it right. They replaced her meal straight away with extras. Will definitely be returning.More
