The beef carpaccio and roast chicken are to die for. Lovely atmosphere too! Great wine and its an ideal place for either a date or with a big group of friends.

I was extremely pleased with the food and staff at Cafe Du Soleil during my first visit. The atmosphere was enjoyable and all of our dishes were incredible. I recommend the scallops with chorizo for starter, absolutely delicious!!

Husband is a pizzaholic so we tried it today and yep he will confirm their pizzas are delicious ... As is the cassoulet, cheese board, blackberry & ginger cake trifle, house wine and coffee! The kitchen is excellent and... More

No need to write praises, food, staff and atmosphere speak for themselves; have been many many times, and will continue to do so! Just go, you won't regret it!

Fortunately had booked for New Years Eve prior to our trip to Canterbury. Good quality food and good choice on menu. Friendly service and a very pleasant evening. Bit disapointed that they didn't do cocktails - so had to be content with just the wine

Good food ( and wide choice), excellent service and reasonably priced. Nice decor and atmosphere. Our meal was a a bit delayed but the waitress came to apologise before we had to mention it and didn't charge us for our drinks. Good experience all round.

... the informal dining, friendly service, tasty large pizza and supper sticky toffee pud. We dined at 615pm catching the early bird menu, so real good value ... And they even serve a good selection of 125ml glasses of wine. Ideal for the family.
