Excellent meal in delightful surroundings


Reviewed by Kirsty Evans on July 3, 2017

We have visited Ganders on many occasions with family and friends over the last few years and have never been disappointed with the standard and quality of food. Everything is freshly cooked and the staff are always friendly and efficient. If you are looking for somewhere with great staff and food, this is certainly the place. We shall look forward enjoying their cuisine on many more occasions.

Very good quality food

Enjoyed a family dinner there today, and I must say it was the best resturant I have been to. Service was very good, very reasonable prices, but. The cooking was excellent, first class! Will go again next time I visit the Isle of Wight. Well done all the team at the resturant.

Good old Ganders

We live in St Helens and have been to Ganders on many occasions. We have never been disappointed: well cooked food using good ingredients served in an informal but caring manner. Good for kids too. Recommended.

Never had a bad meal in Ganders

The one thing you can rely on in life is that you will never have a bad meal at Ganders ! We have been coming to the Isle of Wight for many years and our first day is always rounded off with a meal in this cosy and friendly restaurant in St Helens. We have also had many “special occasion” meals and have never been disappointed. Everything is freshly cooked and of the highest quality. The crab and red pepper soup we had in September was to die for. Looking forward to coming over in October and tring something else from the menu !

We have dined at Ganders on many occasions and have always had delicious, beautifully prepared meals in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The owners, Iain and Kim, and their staff are friendly and efficient and we are looking forward to enjoying many more meals with them. We have also had several family occasions at Ganders, all of which have been excellent.

Fantastic Food

This is a fantastic restaurant, every year we come to the Isle of Wight and always visit Ganders a couple of times. The menu is so mouth watering that my husband and I cant decide what we want as we want to try every thing. This is by far the best Restaurant I have ever been to I just wish is was near my home

His puddings are soooo good


Reviewed by Mrs Pavett on April 22, 2010

We have been going to the Isle of Wight for a few years now as a family, every time we visit the island, we always have a wonderful meal at Ganders. The service is second to none, maybe a bit slow sometimes but that is only due to the number of customers in the wonderful resturant. It it also very popular with the islanders. I would recommend Ganders. The IOW has its own Ivy, OXO etc.. Keep it up Ganders, see you in a month or so for the IOW festival. (PS, his puddings are soooo good)
