Phileas Fogg’s Restaurant in Ventnor serves up world flavours with local flair, and its menu tends to offer the freshest catch of the day all year round. The staff work closely with local suppliers to ensure that all meat comes from local produce, fish comes from the surrounding waters and even the vegetables are grown in the area.
Because the restaurant’s emphasis is always on providing the freshest local produce, the daily specials board changes to reflect the tastes and flavours of the season. Who said Sundays have to be about traditional roast beef? Phileas Fogg’s opens for its Seafood Sundays, and diners have the choice of the fresh catches and seafood found on the specials board. Regulars on the menu include mussels, seafood platters and (now here’s a real favourite) the seafood pizza.
This is the kind of restaurant where diners take their time and pore over the papers while they wait, so it’s a popular choice for those with families or who just fancy award-winning food in a relaxed environment. It’s the kind of restaurant that will make room for a new special on the menu because a supplier recommends something new or rare, and if you love seafood you won’t want to miss out.
