Put simply, The Coast is our number one place of choice to go and eat! The food is great consistently, wether it's breakfast, pizza, steak or one of the yummy deserts or specials.... it's ALWAYS very very good! The service offered by the team at The Coast is friendly and relaxed and 100% suits the Coast brand. The team there... More

Pleasant decor, friendly staff, and the seafood sharing platter was excellent ... But then it went downhill! The boeuf bourguinogne and duck was great, but the roast pumpkin ravioli was horrid and the seafood "linguini" a disaster, tasted like a tin of spaghetti with added prawns and mussels - two of which tasted bad..

The pizza was amazing although I couldn't taste much pancetta on mine which came with pepperoni, mushrooms and peppers too. The place was quite loud too but it was a Saturday night. Starter and desert was fab and the staff were all friendly and helpful.

I ate here with a friend, just before Christmas. It was busy, but the service was great and the food was fantastic. There was a lively, cosy atmosphere. I will definitely be going back.

We live in Cowes and would of loved Coast to have been one of our favourite local restaurants. However I'm sad to say we have had many bad experiences ranging from reservations being forgotten despite being made weeks in advance. To food poisoning through bad mussels and absolutely no apology when ww confronted them the following day. Staff attitude is... More

We went in and even though we hadn't booked got a table. Very attentive staff. We had been previously and enjoyed the food so were looking forward to it. The steak was stringy. I had lovely pork belly but small portions for the price and the whitebait for the other member of our party was served 10 minutes after the... More

A popular restaurant with good food. Sadly, because it is so popular and crammed with many small tables, the noise level is much too high. I had to shout across a table for 2 and there was not enough space for the water jug which had to be put on the floor.
