We had an excellent meal. I enjoyed a wood fired pizza. My son and girlfriend are both vegan and had a vegan pizza and a appetizer. Staff were sure to let them know what was vegan and not. Everything was fresh and tasty served hot and on time. Water was filled several times and service was friendly.

Best cocktails in Cowes! By far! Service was amazing, very quiet night so the staff definitely had the time to be attentive. Great atmosphere. Had the veal special. So over cooked it was tough. Struggled to cut through. But the flavours in the dish were delightful. My partner had a steak, also over cooked. Over all will come back for... More

We were surprised by the quality dishes this restaurant have made. Can surely taste the freshness of the seafood, amazing! Nice & soft background music were enjoyable. The restaurant is very clean. And the service is the best, 10 out of 10! Very friendly and thoughtful, the first time ever someone asked to wash our toddler's bowl and cutlery after... More

This place has something for all members of your dining group whether you are dining with your other half, a group of friends or the family. Great pizzas for the kids and some more upmarket dishes including a divine morton bay bug risotto I enjoyed their recently. Good wine list with local wines.

Tried one restaurant in Cowes but after brief enquiry left and just happened into the Fig and Olive. A stroke of luck as it turned out to be simply excellent. Staff very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Good wine list with realistic prices. Only issue food was a bit slow in coming but they were very busy. Food well and truly... More

Had a great lunch. Chose the special of chicken skewers in honey and stout and it was delish. Followed by gorgeous pannacotta dessert. Yum yum

Very lively night out. The food was delicious. The staff attentive but not overbearing. Each meal was loving prepared by the chef (had a view of the kitchen). Only negative was the over all noise it seemed loud.

After a friendly greeting by the young woman on arrival we ordered the seafood spaghetti & seafood paella for lunch. What a delight to eat what was one of the best dishes of their kind we have ever eaten anywhere. The food is genuinely sensational. All credit to the kitchen. Totally unexpected in a small tourist settlement. Would match the... More

The food was very good, packed with loads of flavour. Their children's menu is reasonably priced. The children demolished their spaghetti. They have high chairs and colouring in for the children also. The staff was friendly and helpful. The acoustics in the restaurant was really good. We could hear our own table well, but not the others in the restaurant... More
