The waitress explained the food in detail which was beautifully cooked and tasted exquisite. The atmosphere and setting was calming and relaxed. The back drop of an old church wonderful.

The Ambrette is one of the best restaurants in Rye. It is also probably the best Indian restaurant in the South East.

This was a wonderful surprise on a rainy evening. The restaurant and menu looked enticing from the street - and then there were many surprising extras that made this an excellent meal. The flavours were all completely delicious, and the variety was very good, even for a vegetarian. And the staff were polite, helpful and knowledgeable. I'll be back soon.... More

I wanted to take a weekend visitor out for a meal in Rye where they would be surprised and impressed by one of our local establishments (she is from London!). The Ambrette was my first choice because it is somewhere different and exciting. The food was, as usual, delicious and delightful. The waiting staff are extremely well trained - attentive,... More
