The Boathouse Seafood Restaurant
Steephill Cove, Ventnor, PO38 1UG - 01983 852747
A popular place to eat for locals and holidaymakers alike, this excellent seafood restaurant is set above a small, shingly beach. Try freshly caught crab and lobster landed only metres away by the cove’s fishermen, Mark and Jimmy Wheeler, which is then served with crisp salads and fresh bread. Eat out on the deck as you soak up the fantastic views of the sea. Open lunchtime only, except Wednesday, from the end of the May bank holiday until the first week of September. With only 30 seats, booking is advised.
