Whether you choose a three-course meal, a sandwich, an ice-cold beer or a bottle of wine to enjoy out on the decking, a friendly welcome will always greet you at this family run, chic-nautical themed bar and restaurant.

I've visited numerous times since Alan Staley took over Ocean Deck. As chef at the Royal Hotel in Ventnor I couldn't fault him in over 10 years of eating there and so, basically, I'd follow him wherever he was cooking!
So far at Ocean Deck I've enjoyed calamari, beetroot salad, whitebait, cajan chicken, pork belly, burger etc etc but the Sunday roast is the best I've ever eaten. It comes with a fabulous selection of beautifully cooked vegetables and they are kept fresh - how come they can do it when all other carveries can only offer grey, dead stuff, kept warm for infinity?
Even the kids fish fingers are little catch of the day fillets, freshly prepared in batter.
Probably visit here more frequently that any other restaurant on the island.

Chose this place as it had nice views over the beach, but when we got in and had already ordered our drinks were told the full menu wasn't available, just a limited 3choice lunch menu. Chose the lasagne as the other two choices were deep fried, it was home cooked, but not properly reheated through, far too many chips, large salad but soaked in dressing so my husband couldn't eat it.

Real food and great atmosphere, with friendly staff. A great combination that needs nothing else to explain it, it's now on our list of go to places on the island.
