We walked in without a reservation early evening and were instantly greeted with a very friendly waitress who seated us. The restaurant looked very pretty and was clean. We weren't rushed for our order; in fact the waitress came and went at exactly the right time. She even allowed us to have a food order offer that had expired 10... More

Although in a nice location, the sign on the front of the building suggests a low-end spanish style chain experience (eg La Tasca). However, once inside it becomes clear this is something much more. The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. The food is really good. Lots of surprises on the menu and the quality of both adult and children's... More

We spent our last evening in Canterbury at this restaurant. We were a little bit disappointed in the beginning, as it was not the same restaurant anymore that we had been to, some years ago. But at the end we were very happy we stayed and ate at the Café du Soleil. The staff was extremely friendly and the food... More

From first contact to final bite, this was one of the best dining experiences ever. I'm always a bit anxious trying to book a restaurant for a group of 35 people, all of varying ages and appetites. And long distance, sight unseen? It's a gamble at best. But the staff at Cafe du Soleil were all that is amiable and... More

I honestly can not fault this restaurant! We went there for Mother's Day lunch. Four adults, and we were all thoroughly impressed! Food is slightly expensive but it is cooked to perfection and is such high quality that it is worth the money. Staff were all friendly and attentive and we will definitely be back soon!

We found this restaurant by accident, we were struggling to park and managed to find the car park next to here by chance. It was tipping it down with rain and the Cafe was very well lit in a lovely setting on the river. We walked in, in the hope to get a table at 8pm on a Thursday evening.... More

We went here for a mothers day lunch today, there were 6 adults and 3 children. I hadn't been before but it was a lovely setting and an attractive restaurant. The menu was varied and some of us had the starters, calamari was delicious. The garlic bread was an extremely small portion though and not worth the money charged. I... More

The food here is of a very high standard, the setting is nice, and the service was good with the exception of an issue with the bill. All 3 courses were very good, it was on the pricier side but despite that it is good value as you can tell that the ingredients they use are of a high quality.... More

We enjoyed an early evening meal on a Monday, we were welcomed warmly and seated in beautiful surroundings. Our meals were perfectly cooked, beautifully presented and reasonable value for money. The service from the staff was excellent, very attentive but not pushy or intrusive. We would definately go back again and recommend highly to friends and family.
