Newest Review: ... has changed hands, however, the staff seem to be less enthusiastic about the menu. The portions can waver between generous and not enough. You can get really good value for money when you have a large starter, a main and a 'chocolate junkyard' for instance. The 'dinosaur bones' have lost their appeal as they used to be much bigger and come with a prize of free drink if you finished them! The ... more

It's my girlfriend's Birthday!...she's Brazilian, so I think a South American restaurant would be very apt.We turn up and order some beers, and are seated within minutes.We waited just under 30 mins for our starter, and I was downing beer to try and ignore the fact that my missus was looking upset.We decide to ask for our main to be delivered in a doggy bag. The staff agree, and about 30 mins it arrives.We go back to our hotel, and open up our food..........AHH!....disaster!My Fahitas consist of a crushed and cold mixture of Guacamole and grated cheddar and a couple of wrinkly old tomatoes.My girlfriend's 'Mixed Grill' consisted of....Cumberland Sausages (not Mexican)....bits of shrivelled Beef (not Mexican)...and wait for it.......CHIPS!!!!!!!0/10

Dos Amigos, situated in Ryde on the Isle of Wight, is a Tex / Mex style restaurant. The decor reflects the theme with cacti, and various cowboy based effects on the walls. The menu is fairly limited, but service is quick and staff are friendly. In my experience, the food is of fair quality - but not exceptional. As a starter, their nachos with cheese and chili offers good value for money - but by comparison, the other starters are quite small and a little disappointing. Again, the dessert menu doesn't offer much variety, with about three choclate based dishes and a cheesecake offering. Perhaps a speciality board would offer a bit of ... Read the complete review

The food was disgusting. Absolutely awful - so bad that I've only given it a star because I have to give it a rating.
