Terrible, unclean premises, expensive and too much on the menu. We ordered pork belly Italian style and chicken parmigiana, crackle on the pork wasn’t and there was absolutely no love in the Patmos, dry and very tasteless! Avoid at all costs.

We always eat at Pino's 1 night, when we are in Cowes & are never disappointed. Great selection of food & quality meals. Don't be put off by the "no booking" policy, you only ever wait 10-15 mins for a table. Great night out.

Very friendly and welcoming restaurant which served great food. Young staff who were helpful and knowledgable whilst the display cabinets would be a bikers dream i am not but was extremely impressed. Left with full stomach and hope to revisit someday.
