Seven of us ate at the Ambrette on a Tuesday evening recently. It was our first visit and we were impressed with the service and food. The young ladies serving had been very well trained in customer service. They were smiling, helpful and professional. The food was of excellent quality being very well cooked and presented very stylishly. The fusion... More

On a recommendation of some friends we visited this delightful ,modern restaurant in the town of Rye. The welcome was nice and we were led to our table in the conservatory with views into the walled garden below us. The food was served with a confident and detailed description. The food was a unique blend of tastes and the extras... More

Since the move to the new location we have been twice. The first time it was within the first few days of relocation. The second time it was the Two for One offer. The food seems to have changed, not as carefully cooked and presented. The ambience has altered, much 'colder' and the staff less friendly. In all we will... More

Fantastic food, fantastic service and price not ridiculous. Would recommend to anyone, and even worth a bit of a trip to eat there.

An easy review to write. First visit to the new premises. Wonderful innovative food, lovely surroundings and brilliant staff. This must be one of the best restaurants in the South East.

We really enjoyed the setting, the service and the Kent/East Sussex meets the orient fusion food. We recommend the Ambrette to all Rye visitors. Our one gripe, as folk who live locally, is that the standard set lunch menu we normally go for has remained unchanged for so long. We'd come back more often if some changes were rung more... More

Stayed in Rye for a couple of days looking out for a couple of restaurants to book stumbled upon this after reading many good reviews and boy I was not disappointed, I went for the tasting menu with accompanying wines, every course was stunning and the matching wines were brilliantly balanced with each course, the service was attentive and I...

Wonderful experience. Why must this be 100 characters at least. My review of tripadvisor is that it is a pompous operation dictating what I have to do and say.
