The Jetty is closed for the season. We will re-open in November 2021.

Located on the foreshore in Cowes, The Jetty certainly has got it all going on.

By day, enjoy relaxed cool beach vibes, great coffee and perfect beachside snacks. 

Every Friday and Saturday night, get a taste of Spain as The Jetty transforms into a Tapas Bar that locals and visitors love! We have 1 sitting available at 7pm on Fridays and Saturdays.

This was a fantastic place to celebrate our 10th Wedding anniversary. The atmosphere was fun! The staff were welcoming and friendly. The view was amazing! The paella was the best I’ve had since I was in Spain.

We were lucky enough to book in for their last night of the season, and it was definitely worth it! The food was so tasty, delicious and generous.
We can’t wait to go back in November. Highly recommend The Jetty!

The boss wasn’t there, and the paella was not as good as usual & the service was terrible.
Very disappointed as it is usually one of our favourite places to go when visiting the island.

Hubby and I out for dinner without the kids! We felt so lucky getting a bench seat overlooking the pier at high tide watching the sun go down to the west. Our second time dining here.. the paella certainly didn’t disappoint! Better than Valencia in Spain!

With fantastic views and authentic Spanish food, you could be forgiven for thinking you were on a beach in Spain, rather than the bottom of Victoria. A welcome addition to the dining options available on Phillip Island during summer and will definitely be back!

Food was fantastic, and a great venue to sit, have a meal, a few drinks and overlook the water.
Friday and Saturday night Spanish Tapas is well worth the trip.
Highly recommend for those that haven't been here before.
Thumbs up for the service as well

This is the place to chill out, especially on Friday and Saturday evenings for tapas and paella, looking out over Westernport Bay, watching the sunsetting and the waves lapping. Great selection of tapas.

Dinner was ruined by terrible service and communication. The waitresses had absolutely no idea what they were doing, manager was frazzled, paella took over 1.5 hours to be cooked and had we been told it would take this long, we would not have ordered. I would never go back here.
