Rye Scallop Week

By good fortune our visit to Rye coincided with the above. Webbes at the Fish Cafe are not miserly on portion size and I failed to do justice to a delicious main course of scallops after an equally delicious starter of prawns and vegetable tempura.

Webbes at the Fish Cafe are not miserly on portion size and I failed to do justice to a delicious main course of scallops after an equally delicious starter of prawns and vegetable tempura. I'd love to return to Rye one day and would definitely return to this restaurant.

We visited this restaurant on Wednesday night. The food was very nice and the waiter and waitresses friendly and professional. I was very pleased because the chef even changed two dishes from the tasting menu for me because of my allergy.

We visited Webbes again especially for the scallop festival and enjoyed tasting scallops with black pudding, raw salmon and scallops, and scallops with Vietnamese salad served in their shell with soya. We also tasted the crab and prawns. One of our party had cod and chips. Everything was delicious. The chips were unusually large and the only thing which wasn't... More

Staff, service and ambience was very good but the food a little bland. We have had better flavours with our fish dishes in the Midlands where we live!

We ate here on Valentines eve. The scallops were superb as was the sea bass. I was warned not to order sides as the portions were large . I should have listened. Would return. Book an early table as parking is a nighmare if you want to park near. Lovely chatty friendly mine host. Well worth a done

We return to this restaurant each year as it is consistantly good and we always leave more than pleased with both the food and the service. The dishes are freshly cooked and serve by the hardworking staff. Generous portions and always hot. The menu is reasonably varied and the homemade ice cream is delicious. We attend Webbs while the Scallop... More

This was our 3rd visit to Webbe's and yet again an excellent standard of food. Average prices for a very good meal. We will return again.

We have booked the scallop taster menu during the scallop festival on several occasions and always been delighted with the service and quality. It is well balanced and paced over the multiple courses and tastily inventive in the many ways scallops are presented. It's not cheap but it is excellent value. In fact a near perfect performance apart from one... More

Don't get me wrong food is great! But the service and the environment is miserable. The waitress need to learn what a smile is. A restaurant is only as good as its manager, and the manager needs improving there's a feeling that he and his waiting staff are board and that doesn't make you feel welcome. This is not the...
