Harry's on the Esplanade Overview

The view from Harry’s on the Esplanade, overlooking Cowes’ main stretch of beach, is nothing short of magnificent. Best of all, diners can admire said view whether seated out on Harry’s balcony or inside the dining room, adorned with objects d’art collected on the owner/Chef’s extensive travels. However, it’s much more than just the stunning view that keeps tables full; sunny service and mouth-watering food ensure Harry's popularity. Like Harry himself, an ever-changing menu is grounded in European tradition but inspired by fine local produce, meat and most notably fresh seafood. Trawler-fresh silver dory, King George whiting and crayfish might comprise the day’s offerings, which could also include tender aged Phillip Island eye fillet, cooked to your liking and served with pomme anna.
