Slightly Quirky Decor, Friendly Staff, Chalkboard menu is a bit different to most. Something for everyone. Good Value Food. Choice of drinks is not extensive, but still can be enjoyed. Been many times, at all times of day for coffee, for drinks, for food.

Try here, it's an absolute must for anyone in a cowes, or Southampton for that matter, we jumped on the redjet for £9 return. First impressions of the restaurant are not what I'd call wow, it looks a little worn and tatty, but suppose that's...More

Five weeks in England and this is one of the BEST restaurants we ate at. Food is creative and perfectly cooked. We would go back to Cowers just to eat here. Very small place on the old high street.

Best food on the island. We had the place to ourselves as it was the first evening on that day for the season. A small spot so a reservation is recommended. Fantastic chef.

We needed a nice, un-touristy, restaurant for a celebration meal whilst on holiday and we found just the place. The manager was very friendly and couldn't be more helpful. The food was absolutely delicious - could have been more choices on the menu though. The...More

A Modern European Restaurant in Cowes Brawns is a small, intimate European Restaurant, located in the old quarter of Cowes town. Set in a Grade two listed Georgian building, sympathetically converted a few years ago. Charles Paul, owner and Chef, was trained in London, and having done a stage at the Fat Duck in Bray, went on to work for a high class restaurant in Cambridge. His inspiration for the food is to use high quality, fresh seasonal produce, locally sourced where possible. Diners will always find brasserie favourites on the a la carte menu, as well as some more modern offerings. The specials will change on a daily basis, to ensure there is something new to tempt you. Those looking for tasty food at excellent value can also choose from the set price midweek menu. The wine list will be small, but has been carefully chosen to compliment the food. Those on a budget will not be disappointed by the more affordable wines, as they have still been selected to impress.
