We found this restaurant on a very disappointing and horrendous holiday at Pontins Camber Sands. It was a delightful contrast to the awful camp. We found another holiday place local and had a much better time. We came back here after our pleasant first experience and were not disappointed. Great food, good ambiance and vibe, good service. Highly recommended.

Feeling hungry early Saturday evening in Rye we came across this restaurant by chance. The restaurant was clean, spacious and airy, the staff very friendly and helpful and service was prompt but not too fast. Our chosen starters – Tiger Prawns in garlic, sardines and soup of the day were all well presented, piping hot and very tasty. Our mains... More

Two visits to Carey's in three nights. On both nights, the food was very good. On the first, my scallop starter, and sea bream main, were both simply, but beautifully cooked. My wife loved her prawns, and the service was excellent. On the second, my marsh lamb chops were a highlight of our trip to Rye! Two massive, tender chops,... More

Nice enough staff but really we went here for seafood and I think I'd have been better off going to Iceland. The fish platter was a vile defrosted plate of the cheapest fish from around the globe. Poor quality and a million lightyears from fresh - I'd have paid £16.50 for them to take it away from me. Scallop main... More

My partner and I had a seafood salad with lettuce, small and king pranws, mussels, sardines and salmon. The appearance was nice as well as the price and the taste was acceptable (considering this probably was frozen seafood). After lunch we started to feel bad, having nothing else than this salad...

Second visit and felt it was nowhere near as good as the last. Friendly staff and fantastic selection of fish and seafood but portions a bit mean. We went for lunch on a Saturday and my wife ordered the scallops from the specials menu. She got three and not that large. We had sole and seabass for mains and a... More
