Description: We are proud to work with a dedicated team of local Island Suppliers. Our meat is sourced from local farms such as Kemphill and Dunsbury by Island Foods Butchers. Our vegetable supplier "5 a day" is based in Ventnor High Street who works with an array of local farmers.. All produce is local and seasonal wherever possible, some grown in Ventnor itself. The majority of our fish is caught and supplied by Ventnor Haven Fishery, mostly caught the morning it arrives on your plate. Our mussels are rope grown in the River Exe, Devon. All our dry goods are supplied by the Island company Medina Foods. Gourmet Mushrooms are grown on the Island, as well as the tastiest tomatoes courtesy of The Tomato Stall. Our wines are supplied by Majestic Wines based in Wootton, giving us a diverse range of quality wines for your enjoyment. Locally baked bread comes from Sarah's House on Ventnor High Street. Thank you for making our chef's job that little bit easier!

Reviewed 28 October 2013 via mobile

We ate here after reading reviews and were not disappointed. Excellent salt and pepper squid starter for me and a stuffed portobello mushroom for my husband started off the meal a treat. Rack of ribs with delicious homemade coleslaw, pork belly with mash and a delicious jus for us and scallops with cauliflower puree and a small homemade burger for our children, all excellent. We managed to force down a hot chocolate dip surrounded by fruit and marshmallows and a chocolate brownie. Friendly staff were the icing on the cake. I wish we lived closer!

“Yum”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

I wasn't aware Phileas Fogg had any Ventnor connections, but it seems he has set up in the town and what a place he has!

We arrived without a booking on a Monday evening, although as we had a baby in tow we'd arrived as soon as they opened so there was no problem getting a seat. The menu looked fantastic and there was plenty to enjoy - all freshly cooked and lovingly presented. The staff were all extremely friendly and chatty, and didn't mind too much that our son, at several times, preferred the idea of dropping food on the floor rather than eating it. Still, he seemed to enjoy doing just that!

The deserts sounded amazing too but sadly a tiring baby meant we had to dash back to our hotel. Such is the life for the parents of a young child, but thanks to restaurants like this for making it an easy meal.

“Hidden gem... ”
Reviewed 12 October 2013 via mobile

Found this place on trip adviser as the menu seemed to suit our taste. Pleased to say that the food was great and staff were attentive. We were in Ventnor for a weekend and hadn't made a booking so arrived just before 7pm. We were lucky to get a table as the restaurant isn't that big, but were very impressed. Would recommend booking though as other people weren't so lucky.

“FANTASTIC!”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

What an amazing place. First, we had a lovely warm welcome to this beautifully appointed little gem. The server was well informed, accomodating and fun. Then came the food. The food! From the appetizers to dessert, we could not have asked for better. My scallops were done to perfection and the steaks the others ordered were succulent and perfect. Well worth a trip here. What a gem!
