Freezing cold in restaurant, food just really average and bland. Not hard to do a decent burger (just dry and unappetising) and decent steak (half of it was soooo chewy it just wasn't edible). Gluttons for punishment (excuse the pun) had a dessert and creme brûlée was separated under a rubbery topping - almost inedible. Banoffee pie distinctly average again.... More

A very relaxed and unstuffy place. Not pretentious but welcoming and a very nice venue for good food, especially fish and steak. 8 of us visited Carey's last night and all of us were pleased with the result. We will certainly come here again.

After a walk along the beach on a day when the cold January wind was blowing our party of 4 were looking forward to a lunch time meal and found ourselves in Careys. The restaurant was empty which was slightly off putting, but we were assured that they were serving. Service was good, and the meals arrived in a reasonable... More

One of my favourite seafood restaurants to visit. No fancy surroundings just good honest food. One of my favourites to visit even when the weather is vile outside

Reserved a table for two for one sunday lunchtime with my fiancé. We both had 3 courses, all of the food was very good and there was a very good choice. The service was very good and we found the prices very reasonable. Even though it was quiet we would go back again without any hesitation, just surprised considering the... More

Called in for lunch after a stroll around Rye. Staff welcoming and attentive. Restaurant quite plain but with interesting artwork on walls. Menu limited but we ordered the scallops with black pudding and the whole plaice. Both dishes arrived together and were piping hot and perfectly cooked. Couldn't complain about anything - would go back.

We have been there on a Friday night, it was very quiet, both waiters very nice and helpful, the food was very good, the only down was that they didn't have tequila!

I thought this was a spacisoul, light airy restaurant, but not many in it so was lacking a bit of atmosphere. The walls had artwork of local artists adorning them which I liked, both a lot of the artwork and the fact that they were promoting local artists. The food was very pleasant, the fish obviously fresh. We had garlic... More

As our first choice restaurant was fully booked, we thought we would give Careys a try. It is not a very inviting restaurant - cold inside, harsh lighting and the most uncomfortable seating. There were not many people eating and so there was no atmosphere at all - there was some music playing somewhere in the background but the overall... More

Nice food but we were the only people in this restaurant and it is quiet large so felt rather lost, felt a bit sorry for the staff. Ate in another one on another night and the atmosphere was so different maybe they need to look at what they are maybe doing wrong to be this empty, shame because as noted... More
