I took a customer for a meal to Cafe Du Soleil a week ago and I was very impressed with it. The service was relaxing and the surroundings was very nice. The menu is quite varied, we both had mussels to start which were scrummy and the duck for the main course. The restaurant was quite full for a Wednesday... More

The food was fantastic, the service great and the surroundings were very pleasant. Everyone was delighted with their meal, and the waiter was very thoughtful and helpful. The wine list was very good to suit a wide variety of tastes and pockets. I'm very surprised to report it was one of the best meals I have ever had. I can... More

My boyfriend and I visit Cafe du Soleil every two weeks, as he is at University in Canterbury. We loved it from the first moment we arrived, friendly staff, wonderful atmosphere and the food is outstanding. The varied menu allows you to have something different every time, and still be excited to try something the new on the next visit.... More

We've eaten here 3 or 4 times now, both lunch and dinner. Attractive surroundings, excellent and considerate service, good food at a reasonable price. They catered well for a vegan friend as the waiter clearly understood the parameters of her needs, recommended what she could order and indicated that the kitchen were used to catering for vegans in general. However,... More

This is a nice warm restaurant with well prepared and tasty food. I have eaten there at least 10 times in the last two years. The food is dependable, not daring. The menu has hardly altered over the last two years, but I have always enjoyed the food. On the wall there is some dreadful "artwork" which really does spoil... More

Got taken here for lunch today. Really impressed. Good food, nice surroundings, lovely staff, and to top it all were given free desserts because they're having a door fixed and there was a bit of banging in the background. We'll be back! Thanks guys!

This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend on Twitter. The location is beautiful, over a stream and I was fortunate enough to park in the car park just outside. The staff were attentive and professional, the atmosphere was that of a very quiet Saturday lunch time but it allowed us to converse without a lot of noise. We... More
