“What a great find - thanks Trip ad”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2010

After reading reviews on here, my wife booked a table here for Saturday evening (if going on a Fri/Sat - best book in advance - closed Sun). It was totally full and had a nice atmosphere, great service and a good choice of beef cuts and lamb, plus seafood. Interesting point to all is - YES - you cook your own dinner! Its great fun, you get a huge bowl of the best ever fries and a big salad to share....we loved it! Local's, families, couples and a mini B/day party all going on together...great!

“'Best steak in Britain.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2010

My girlfriend and i are regulars in Yarmouth but tonight was the first time we have tried this restaurtant and what can i say?....Fantastic!!...I was in Argentina before on a ranch and i can truthfully say the meat i had tonight was the best i have had since leaving that ranch a few years ago. Well worth a visit, if we had not had to rush for the ferry i would have stayed for dessert and coffee....next time though for sure

“Fantastic, unique experience but lots of fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2010

We went on our last night of a weeks holiday in Isle of Wight. We had been recommended to go but thought it was just a seafood restaurant. We had a great time and although there was no childrens menu there was something to appeal to our two children (aged 4 and 8) and grandma. The fillet steak was the best I have had for many years and the puddings were also fab. Although I initially thought it pricey the main course includes a starter of bread and oil/balsamic dip and the food really was top quality. Would definitely return. Booking is essential!

“A great meal out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2010

We had a great meal here.

The meat was lovely, really good quality beef.
The waitresses were really friendly and very helpful. You get really big portions. A massive bit of meat with salad and the biggest bowl of chips ever to share between us two. They offered to fill the chips up as well!

It is a great night out as you get a steak cooked how you want it because you cook it yourself!

They do various fish options as it is right by the sea.

When we go back to the Isle of Wight we will be going back here!!!!
