We had a young waiter looking after us and he was so accommodating and friendly, he will go far. The meal in the... More

We ate here last summer, sorry for the late posting! We were having a few days in Canterbury and on our last night decided to splash out with a meal here. It was a graduation day and the restaurant was full of happy families celebrating which made for a lovely atmosphere. The food was excellent, the service a little slow... More

Went with friends for a long lazy lunch. Cocktails pre-lunch were lovely (service wasn't quick but fine..). The lunch was fantastic with great service from our waitress. This is fine dining, beautifully cooked and presented, do not expect huge portions...

We have had lunch here a number of times and the quality of the food has been great. At lunchtime they offer a set menu which is reasonably priced for the quality of the food on offer. The building and decor is impressive so worth a visit if you have quality guests! :-)

Another lovely meal at the ABode - the food was excellent, the fresh fish risotto starter was the best risotto I have had. Good atmosphere and the staff were in good spirits. Great start to our family celebrations We will be back!
