My husband and I have been wanting to go here for ages. We finally got here on our 23rd Wedding Anniversary. Fantastic location, stunning views over Sandown Bay. Lovely seeing the old Bandstand brought back to life. The food was amazing! The quality and freshness of the food was gorgeous. Would recommend this . The service is excellent. Thank you to Paul and his team for a beautiful evening

This is situated just across the road from the beach so has fantastic views. The food was lovely although there is not a big menu, and the staff were very friendly, One downside is that the chairs are not very comfy and are very hard!

We came ver from the mainland to visit mum and she insisted on treating us to lunch, she recommended the bandstand and we are very glad she did. The food was great and the staff very friendly. On the whole the food was perfectly cooked and presented. The only negative and it is picking... was the amount of cheese on the sharing cheese board. The quality and selection was fine but I have had, on many occasions more cheese on a board for one. That being said we would happily return to try some more of your lovely dishes

This is a fantastic place to have lunch or dinner. The food is excellent and the staff are very attentive. We went here for a birthday dinner, marvellous choice of food that night as is usual here. Always have a specials board. Would really recommend, even their sandwiches are great. Would recommend booking in the evening as they have now got a very good local reputation and get busy.

Let me save you the searching.

If you want the best location, views, food, service and people in the area eat at The Bandstand right on the waterfront.

We tried a variety on our holiday but this place really does tick all the boxes.

Please do yourself a favour and avoid major disappointment. Try this first DO NOT leave it until the end of your holiday because YOU WILL WANT TO GO BACK!
