We went on a sunny Friday lunchtime. It was busy, with nearly all the outside tables taken. There's plenty of room inside, but we stayed out to make the most of the warm October sunshine. We were told straight away that there was a one hour wait for food. The bar has 3 lager taps, but one was off. I... More

This is more than a cafe, more like a bistro. The offer is mainly locally sourced produce and fish caught by local fishermen. My wife and I started with goujons of plaice, new on the menu that day, - full of flavour unlike the frozen versions. We followed with Mediterranean prawns, larger and better presented than those we find on... More

It depends on your expectations I guess but this great location beach bar could be SO brilliant. I had mackerel to start and absolutely no attempt was made to disguise that it was straight out of the packet and chucked on my plate. We had fish and chips which was Icelands finest. Came with birds eye peas. The waitresses cant... More

Escaped the hell of local holiday park to go to the great laid-back atmosphere at Rye Bay Cafe. The owner is an excellent character who makes you feel extremely welcome and the staff can't do enough for you. One even tolerated my friend's interrogation regarding every pudding on the menu. The food is great- real sense that the cafe is... More

We had lunch here while on holiday in Camber Sands. Lunch was cooked to order, fresh and hot. Every meal in our party (6) was excellent, just a shame we found this gem at the end of our holiday!

We ate here quite a few times and Graham and staff could not have been nicer. The food was always great and make sure you book first so you don't miss out
