About Cadet Beach Club
Modern, local seafood restaurant with Asian influences.
All good, but oysters outstanding
Really enjoyed the food and the casual atmosphere over looking the beach The food was super spicy but still enjoyable and different than your average menu. Not great if you want meat and two veg, and in my mind all the better for that. Pity they couldn’t serve tea or coffee after the meal because the machine was broken
Had a lovely meal celebrating my wife's birthday the food was wonderful my wife especially enjoyed the lobster & the coconut bomb pudding the service was really good too we would definitely return
Great venue , service and food
We loved it. Great view, lovely staff, and the food was fabulous - we’ll definitely be back!
Had Sunday lunch with daughter who should have got married last weekend so wanted to cheer her up. Excellent meal as expected. Plan worked. Thanks.
Fun buzzy atmosphere great staff very friendly and lots of them ! Food was also very good Would return definitely
Arrived to a pretty chaotic scene, service team frankly running round like headless chickens. Brief, not particularly welcoming greeting given, seated and given water. Then the farce began as we were asked 5 separate times by various staff if we would like to order drinks. Meanwhile loud row ensued right beside us between tall guy and an older team member about who should/was/wasn’t doing what. Totally unprofessional. We had no idea who was running Front of house service, it was impossible to tell, but the same tall guy who initially took our drinks order and had issued water returned to the table (the 5th attempt) and said ‘Sorry but the person who took your drinks order has disappeared and so we don’t know what you want”? In unison, all 4 of us at our table said in frustration “it was you!”... we then of course told him again! Farcical. Ordered food, starters came in a staggered fashion with mine coming some while before the others which was not ideal, quality was just OK in our opinion (S&P Squid/ Bao Buns). Food was delivered by a team member who had clearly just come back from a “cigarette break” as he absolutely stank of smoke (and I use the term “smoke” loosely). It was disgusting. Main courses were duly brought, but my husbands order had been taken incorrectly so he was issued with the wrong dish. Dish was duly returned to the kitchen then brought back out again with a message from the Chef that if he ate the incorrect meal he wouldn’t be charged for it! “Sorry, but he doesn’t actually like that dish”. The downside of not accepting the incorrect meal was of course that the remaining 3 of us had nearly finished our meal by the time his arrived. Oh and to carry on the chaotic, unprofessional approach one of the team members (same guy who had smelled of “smoke”) came up the table and said “it wasn’t me who took your order wrong was it?” We told him it wasn’t and waited for another row to kick off amongst the team as to who was/wasn’t doing the right thing etc.... 3 of us didn’t enjoy our main courses but this was probably down to personal taste rather than there being anything “wrong” with the food. The slaw tasted overpoweringly of mint, the chips we extremely over seasoned (and I like salt on my chips) and the Risotto, despite looking lovely, had no depth and was a very odd taste of citrus and overpowering coriander. Quite unpleasant actually. On a positive, my husband enjoyed his Fish and Chips, despite eating it after the 3 of us had finished eating what we had. We should have sent back the chips without doubt, but we just couldn’t be bothered by this stage. With the exception of my husband, our plates were returned with a lot of left over food. The lady in the red dress cleared the first 2 plates and clearly clocked there was a lot of food uneaten. She did not make any reference to this nor did she check on satisfaction (a basic in the hospitality trade). She did not return to the table after clearing the first 2 plates. Some while later the tall chap came to collect the remaining 2 plates. He did clock the excess remaining food and asked if we had enjoyed our food. One of our party said she hadn’t enjoyed the Risotto, it had overpowering Coriander and another said his chips were considerably over seasoned and the guy said he would tell the chef. I doubt he did as we didn’t hear another row break out... As I say, we should have asked for new chips but we couldn’t be bothered. We’d had enough of it all by then. We had read the reviews on here and were genuinely excited to be trying out what sounded like a new experience on the Island. It certainly was that. But not one that will be repeated for us. In summary, food mediocre. Service, dire. Value for money, pretty poor.
Couldn't fault the food and service, the buzz and atmosphere was Brilliant, The only minus was that in the current climate the seating was to close to each other although we were lucky to take the table for 2 near the restrooms if we were closer to anyone I Thank we would have had to leave as we are both high risk. Would we go again YES
myself and my wife came on Saturday night for our anniversary and we were delighted with the freindly service outstanding food and buzzing atmosphere will be using the cadet club more offten would highly recommend 😊👌
Fantastic restaurant, gorgeous food, and great staff. What more can I say!
From the reviews our expectation was high, but boy did you guys deliver! Couldn't fault our whole experience. We really enjoyed the whole meal but the bao buns with tempura soft shelled crab were a stand out, amazing, so delicious! We will be back next time we visit the island.
Great service and food- friendly but professional. though we did have trouble booking. It is great that Ryde has a seafood restaurant to rival others on the Island now - fresh, inventive and full of flavour
Music was a little loud for inside but it was noted and a different type of music at a lower level was chosen by a staff member. But....the seafood linguine was amazing. We can’t wait to return.
Delicious lunch, beautiful view.
The food was beautiful, as was the position right on the beach. Service was relaxed and informal. Music was a bit loud for us but that is personal taste. Unfortunately we were just visitors to the Isle of Wight but would certainly recommend.
Great atmosphere, excellent food, attentive service especially the barman .
Enjoyed the potted crab immensely . I would have liked a few more dessert choices please
Absolutely beautiful! Great service, great setting and incredible food!
Probably the best meal with have ever had on the island. Staff were very friendly and happy to talk us through the whole menu. Willing to make recommendations without getting annoyed if we chose not to go with them. We were after a full taste experience so tried lots of new things, all of which were extremely tasty. The portion sizes were very generous. The whole experience was a real treat. Will definitely be going back to try more things.
Food was delicious, great to have some high quality vegan options. Fun atmosphere and lovely view. Faultless!
The food was expectational and the best we have had on the island. Thank you so much
We had such a great time and all absolutely loved the food. The sushi was exceptional! The kids especially loved it! We will be back. Thank you
