Local island produce and seafood, reimagined through a Pan-Asian lens.

The Smoking Lobster Group begun with Smoking Lobster in Ventnor in 2017. Chef Giancarlo "GC" Giancovich's Pan-Asian creations WOWED the Island, against a backdrop of breathtaking beachfront views. In 2020, GC and his sister, Cinz, introduced Little Sister, Drunken Lobster, a Japanese-inspired Izakaya bar which show cases excellent cocktails and Japanese Robata Dishes in a tapas style of dining. During the pandemic, we worked on the Big Sister, Smoking Lobster Cowes, earning top accolades in the famous Yachtsman’s town. 

Now, we are thrilled to introduce Smoking Lobster at Foresters Hall on Sun Hill in Cowes, a captivating pop-up restaurant, offering a British menu and Sunday Roasts. 

The Asian influence stems from the owners, brother and sister Gc and Cinzia who’s father is Chinese and Italian. Both of which have been passionate about the industry their whole lives, growing up on the Island as keen fishermen and travelling the world, especially Asia.
