Description: The Met is about relaxation, quality tapas and fine drinks; bringing a little of the Mediterranean to the beach-front at Ventnor on the Isle of Wight. Enjoy a taste of our continental style hospitality outside in the sun on our paved seating area overlooking the glorious Ventnor beach. Alternatively why not come inside and enjoy our sumptuous leather seating. Drop in for a coffee or a glass of wine and you'll be certain of a warm welcome from our friendly staff and a truly memorable experience, any time of the day. Our light and airy bar also serves ice-cold specialty beer and cider to cool you down after a day on the beach. Whether you are planning a big night out or just popping in for a chat with friends, The Met is your perfect venue.

They have a minimum card payment of £10, which when you just want a couple of drinks is outrageous - just a con to get you to buy more of their stuff.

I can understand a min payment of £5 to cover bank fees but not £10.

Sloppy inconsiderate service to top.

Would not recommend.

We popped in here for a little hors d'hoevres/aperitif. We had olives with feta together with pitta and dips which were half houmous, half alioli. The portions were generous to say the least and very tasty. They also have an excellent wine list. We washed down our preprandials with a lovely bottle of Sylvaner, unusual to find on most lists. The staff were really friendly and the supervisor on duty that evening really knew her stuff.

We found the Met by chance when having an early evening look around Ventnor. Intention was to just sit outside for a brief drink, but it was so pleasant there overlooking the sea, and the food looked good, so we stayed a bit longer.
We enjoyed our meal, service was good, location superb. We'll be back on our next visit to IOW.
