Cantina Ventnor, Isle of Wight

Cantina

Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions Cantina’s opening days and hours have changed. Fridays to Mondays we offer a small sit down and take away menu equally suitable for breakfast or lunch between 8am and 3pm.

From Fridays to Sundays Cantina becomes a bar and bottle shop in the evening. Come in, browse our unique selection of wines, buy one to take with you or choose to drink it at Cantina for a small corkage fee of £6. Alternatively enjoy a couple of cocktails from our by now classic range or a chilled beer. A small selection of snacks is available.
