Wide ranging menu mostly British and European influences. Six of us each had different starters and mains - every one of us thought that their own two dishes were excellent. Good portions, good value £35 per head including drinks, coffee etc. The waiter and three waitresses that served us during our meal last night (Monday 15th Sept) could not have... More

The location along the canal would be romantic -- except there are pigeons everywhere. The pigeons make the area dirty and scary. The service is spotty at best. The two men at the front desk were as different as night and day. When we told the man at the front desk our names, and told him we had a reservation,... More

We held a lunch in Cafe du Soleil's upstairs room for 25 people on a weekday. We gave everyone a two course meal and half a bottle of wine. The meal was to follow our wedding in Canterbury Registry Office that morning. In the run up to the event, the staff could not have been more accommodating when we had... More

We have been here for lunch and dinner and haven't been disappointed yet! The set lunch menu is really good value and the portions on the set menu didn't seem any smaller than the 'real' portion. The staff always seem lovely and very helpful, and the ambiance is very good. Sitting outside in the sunshine of summer was nice, although... More

Visited for lunch - great surroundings and a pleasant atmosphere. Varied menu so really something for everyone. Attentive and friendly service. Food was prompt and very tasty - no complaints at all with the quality. Would say it's a little pricey though comparatively.

Set alongside the river in Canterbury, this unassuming restaurant is spacious inside and has a lovely little seating area right on the riverside for those lovely sunny days we've been having of late! So, we had booked to be here for lunch as a group of old work colleagues, plenty of chat but the waiter was quick (but not too),... More

We didn't want much to eat but did want it to taste nice. The restaurant did not disappoint. We had excellent service from the moment we arrived. The food was delicious, and well presented and there was a good range of wines. We had one of the cheaper bottles and it was really nice. The atmosphere and decor was very... More
