First time at Webbe's and a very good experience indeed! The starters of prawns and courgette in tempura were very tasty and light. I ordered the lobster with linguini and it was absolutely delicious (I wish I could have had the other half of the lobster!) My husband thought the Fish and chips were good but not the best he...

Everything was excellent except the staff - the customer comes first and they should forget whatever problem they might have and try and have a genuine smile and a better manner towards their paying customers. It lets the chef down who has produced a delicious meal. The frosty atmosphere the waitress caused made us not have one of your delicious... More

The restaurant was lively and had a great atmosphere, thanks mainly to the head waiter who was friendly, efficient and funny. The food was very good, tiger prawn tempura and fish soup for starters, cod and chips and monkfish for mains and a delicious bread and butter pudding for desert. My only criticism was that the monkfish meal was slightly... More

The food was excellent and cannot be faulted. The service was efficient but... The greeting on arrival was very good, but thereafter the general attitude seemed to be one of smiling with the mouth, but not with the eyes. Nothing particularly wrong, just the bonhomie one might expect given the quality of the food (and cost) seemed lacking. There was... More

We stayed at a pretty little cottage in Rye for our anniversary and the owner recommended the Fish Cafe. As a surprise for my wife I invited my son, his wife and our gorgeous granddaughter (7 months old). The Fish Cafe is not the prettiest of places (a bit scruffy really) but we went there for the food, which did... More

We had a couple of meals in this restaurant during our stay in Rye. The food was good and fresh. We had fish and it was lovely. We CAN recommend this restaurant.

Had a late Sunday lunch at Webbes. We were sat quickly and given menus but the drinks took a while to be served, they were then delivered twice. Menu is good, the food came out in good time and was hot. I Thought the sauce for the mussels was a bit watery, but still tasty. My Partner ordered the Surf... More

Anyone who enjoys fish and seafood could not do better than a visit to this excellent restaurant. Being largely locally sourced the fish is fresh and beautifully cooked. For a starter I had the Thai sweet and sour prawn soup, which was piping hot with a good balance of flavours, followed by a superb plaice dish, which had been recommended... More

Booked on line an hour or two earlier - all straightforward. Delicious starter of tempura prawns and veg. Main was gorgeous oven roasted monkfish wrapped in pancetta. Hubbie had Bouillabaisse followed by Dover sole. Great advice from maitre d re portion size and whether side dishes needed. Puds delicious too. Best meal of our week in Rye area. Would definitely...
