Visited the island for the day and were ambling around Sandown looking for somewhere to eat when we stumbled upon Bellamy's. From the outside it has a French / continental feel, and with an attractive menu we thought we'd give it a go. Really friendly welcome from a team who clearly love what they do. It's very very popular with... More

This is possibly the best restaurant in Sandown. The food is freshly cooked and all the staff make you welcome. It is busy so it's best to book. Thank you for a great evening

We went here for an evening meal. It is a small place on the high street. We found the staff very obliging and friendly. The food was excellent and locally sourced. It is recommended that you book.

Popped in for another visit . Food excellent,Yvonne and Simon as welcoming as ever. Must be five years of eating here every time we come Deep South. Nothing has changed still top notch.

Having walked past Bellamy's many times we found a gem when we tried this lovely restaurant. Booking is advisable especially in the summer as the town gets very busy. The menu is varied with a separate seafood menu and specials board. The service is friendly, prompt without being invasive. We have always enjoyed the food, being well cooked and presented.... More

Very friendly and efficient service and a good menu to choose from, with reasonable prices. Their wine and beer selections are first class and not unreasonably priced. Highly recommended

Home cooking, lots of choice, mainly English. Worth taking note of the day's recommendations. Best steak on island, cooked exactly as you ask. Nothing too much trouble. Like eating at home without the shopping, cooking and washing up. Delightfully unpretentious little place, popular with both locals and regular holiday makers so it's really wise to RESERVE A TABLE. I believe... More
