Having dined and relaxed here over many years,I'm disappointed that the quality of food, wine and staff service has declined so greatly
On the whole, the young staff try to be helpful but are simply slow, inexperienced and untrained.
Perhaps I hit a duff day,recently but my 'awesome tiger prawns' were anything but.This is a dish I have enjoyed many times.On this occasion it comprised 5 smallish dried out husks for a cost of £9, The quality of the bread has always been poor-the cheapest pittas, those grim 'part baked baguettes, but I think it's really hit rock bottom now.Most other eateries in Ventnor now offer home made or artisan quality bread.
The last salad I ate there was a disgrace and very over priced for a tapas sized portion.Cheap flavourless tomatoes and half a tired old egg with some wilted lettuce underneath.
For a wine bar, there is a very limited selection of wine by the glass and the house reds are grim.
It's got a lovely ambience and great views, but, please try and get things back on track and think about some basic, quality ingredients..
