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.

We often call into this lovely cafe for a coffee and decided to try one of their Tapas evenings for a Birthday treat. Lovely atmosphere, cosy and friendly and the food was excellent, very varied and extremely tasty. Also a great wine selection. Would definitely...recommend for Vegans and non Vegans who are looking to try something different.More

We were given a Tacos and Tipples Voucher for a Christmas present, so this was an outing to use this. The greeting we received on entry was friendly and welcoming, the menu options for this voucher were explained to us in a helpful manner, with...suggestions to help us get the best out of our experience. The food was very tasty and portions were generous without being too much. We would recommend this venue, as we thoroughly enjoyed our meal there, especially as we did not know this little gem even existed until receiving this present. Will look to return soon.More

Had Sunday roast here and wow it was so lovely. TEN different veg, mushroom and leek gravy and four choices of meat free accompaniment. I had the sweet potato roulade (yum). Very friendly service and home and all home cooked. Small and basic but well...worth a visit - very reasonable prices too.More

Have been here many times for breakfast and coffee (always 10/10) but this is only the second time I’ve been for tapas and it did not disappoint! Absolutely beautiful food, great atmosphere, will absolutely be coming back for tapas. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

Fantastic little gem tucked away on Sandown high street, this cafe gives you everything you want and more. The owner was so friendly and welcoming, stayed open longer for us when we arrived after closing time & didn’t hurry us along at all when choosing....Gorgeous vegan food & drinks and a great conversation with the lovely owner, definitely a highlight of our holiday & only wish we could take her back with us. Thanks so much ❤️More

Happened upon The Bay by accident walking back to the car but had to pop in for coffee and cake treat as not often we find vegan coffee shops. We were served by a lovely lady who took time you find out what we’d like...and customised the coffee for each of our tastes. A lovely place and delicious cake! Great to find somewhere like this so unexpectedly and whilst on holiday. Thoroughly recommend. If we were staying longer we’d be back again for sure!More

We needed to plan our wedding in 4 weeks, we wanted vegan food and had met Mel a couple of times before and ate at her lovely restaurant. We enquired if it would be something she could do. We were met with great enthusiasm for...the food she could do for us, flexibility on meeting up and discussing it further, and a wonderful, calm, can-do attitude. Mel is a positive, professional lady with incredible organisational skills. She quickly not only organised our catering to our taste but also arranged for me to have my lashes and nails done at short notice, she organised an incredible band last minute and put us in touch with Marquees IOW who were amazing. She also put us in touch with a lady to do our wedding cake. All within a weeks notice. Mel really surpassed our expectations, and we will be forever grateful for her and her amazing team for looking after us on our special day. Our wedding reception was at my parents' house, and Mel prepared a cold buffet for lunch. Then, cooked for 60 people for dinner, she used the kitchen and kept it clean and tidy. Everyone enjoyed the food so much and commented how tasty it was. Thank you, Mel, and your amazing team for your organisation, wonderful food, smiles ,laughter ,attention to detail, enthusiasm, and calm❤️More
