Island Harbour / The Breeze Restaurant & Bar

Anyone else tried this place?

We took a trip over to Cowes today and decided to go up the Medina beyond The Folly Inn as we'd read good things about 'The Breeze' restaurant at Island Harbour.

Called the marina in advance and was told we were welcome to moor on the waiting jetty for the marina lock in return for a small donation in the collection box for the Sea Cadets (which we were delighted to do).

On a sunny day like today it's an idyllic spot to spend a couple of hours, and we had a welcome drink and a very good (and reasonably priced) meal before heading home. Mrs NSS said it was the best meal we've ever had on the island, and we've had a few!

Might be a good spot for Ribnetters to meet up sometime.

PS: I have no connection with Island Harbour or The Breeze (in case anyone was wondering )

Yes a great spot, but almost dries on low water, at springs last weekend several of us had to hold on festival transfers to that pontoon. Last run in was three foot and don't cut across, go to outer starboard buoy 1 turn to port 90 degrees to mooring pontoon, same on exit if low water

Yep, the channel is not expansive, but we arrived mid-tide and had been warned by the harbour master of the approach needed so had no problems. It has a really nice 'feel' about the place.
