Where food & view say it all!


The Rex in Ventnor, on the Isle of Wight, is a modern and relaxed form of dining fine, run by the characterful, kind & funny Abdel with a wonderful kitchen team run by Zoe. No pretentions, just excellently prepared tasty Italian inspired food using quality produce, locally sourced where possible and prepared with homemade sauces and breads in our kitchens, served in a friendly style, with the best views of the headland of Ventnor Bay!


The Rex as it is today is an Art Deco styled building overlooking the sea from a prominent cliff location in Ventnor, opposite St Catherine's Church. It sits on the site which once held the Rex Cinema. The Rex  Restaurant is fresh, whilst retaining a deco feel with rustic and coastal ambiance and is excellent in all weathers.
