Matt and Cat say...
We love Salty Willy's: fish fresh off the boat. Bellamy's for traditional dishes. Beach Shack: home-cooked seafood and decent coffee.
Sandown is the archetype of the British seaside resort. With miles of soft sand and one of the Island's remaining piers for 'slots of fun', it also has some great cafes. Sit beachside at the Beach Shack for home-cooked seafood. The chef's crab and lobster stack is a speciality. Bellamy's in the High Street menu has your traditional English dishes, plus seafood favourites. New last season is Salty Willy's, a street food shack with pretty excellent seafood, plus local condiments from the Garlic Farm.
