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.

Best Calamari. Great Chicken bites. Only popped in for a lighter meal. We will return for something more substantial. Lovely staff too.

Visited Harbour Kitchen for lunch on a weekday, booked online just in case and the place looked half full. We got seated upstairs at a cosy little table. The food here is amazing, we had calamari and cauliflower bites to start which were incredible and...served really quickly. I had the chicken hash burger (chicken burger with hash brown and chipotle mayo) and fries with cheese and peppercorn sauce. Absolutely delicious. My girlfriend had the classic burger and fries with their honey mustard slaw, again they were amazing. Staff were friendly and attentive, thanks in part to these little order cubes at the table which you can use to ask for service or the bill. Prices were in the mid-higher range considering burgers come without sides as standard, but the variety and quality made it all well worth the money in my opinion. I'd recommend Harbour Kitchen to anyone and I'm looking forward to coming back!More

We happened upon this place on a rainy night and what a treat! Love this kind of place - good quality food done well, with a simple menu that sticks to their strengths. The ham and cheese croquettes were to die for, and my husband...loved his burger, while I really enjoyed my steak salad. We then had a milkshake and hot chocolate for afters - both delicious. Service was good and it’s a nice atmosphere/decor. Would heartily recommend!More

Wanted to eat here but online reservations suggested no availability. However we rang direct and they said if we popped down they'd squeeze us in. It looked like an old fashioned chip shop downstairs with tiny kitchen but we were seated upstairs which had a...different style entirely. Our burgers were extremely nicely prepared (I had the halloumi) and we both ordered fries. Note ... the portions were extremely generous and we should have gone for one fries to share. As we left utterly stuffed and had to go for a lengthy walk to try and work some of it off!More

We attended here for a birthday meal and the service was abysmal. I will say, the food was good and the place was averagely clean. However, we bought a cake for my friend and asked three times for it still not to be bought to...us (and no, it wasn’t busy) and again multiple times for the bill. We ordered drinks we never got but yet they appeared on the bill. If you can tolerate poor and slow service I’d recommend. Otherwise avoid. We attended the compass bar after and unsurprisingly the service was equally as poor.More

We had a wonderful meal here. The burgers were amazing and the chicken tenders that my daughter had were delicious (she is normally a fussy eater). Can highly recommend eating here...yum.

Harbour Kitchen is truly a hidden gem in Cowes! Its an extremely spacious restaurant, while still providing a homey feel. The food is brilliant and super fresh. Their award winning burger is something you have to try! Staff were really attentive and accommodating.
