Description: Tucked away within the ancient city walls, Michael Caines at ABode Canterbury is an engagingly chic street-level restaurant with a buzzy, elegant vibe. The innovative menu of modern European cuisine is the perfect foil for the effortlessly contemporary interior, featuring regional produce in smart dishes such as roast sirloin of Kentish beef with wild mushroom purée, roasted salsify and Madeira jus and crouton-topped fillet of Hythe brill with golden beetroot and fennel cream sauce.

Superb, highly recommend these evenings, unfortunately Michael is no longer involved with Abode Canterbury but his legacy will continue in this lovely hotel. You can also enjoy such evenings at Abode Canterbury, Chester & Exeter & of g=course Gidleigh Park.

The food was fantastic, really well presented and tasted divine. Reasonably priced considering the quality. Service was good but not up to the standard of the food - some staff were better than others!

We had both dinner & breakfast here whilst staying in the hotel. The food quality was good on both occasions, service was good for dinner, terrible for breakfast, painfully slow. Dinner & drinks are quite pricey but the food was of a good standard but portions were not large. I only give 3 * as the breakfast experience was so... More

We went to this restaurant on a whim. We'd been to the champagne bar and having already eaten dinner elsewhere fancied dessert. Michael Caines offered us a 4 desserts taster menu for £22. We thought we'd give it a go...from start to finish we loved our time in the restaurant. The service was 5* all the way, in fact it... More

We enjoyed an excellent supper here on one of the nights we were in Canterbury. Fine dining with local foods that are well prepared without being fussy. Good staff. Definitely worth sampling.

Ambience ok, service excellent, wine list extensive and menu tempting - This is fine dining at a reasonable price. The courses we had were well prepared and presented with attention to detail. The portions were as you might expect in a fine dining restaurant so you will probably need side dishes with your main course. We found the food to... More

We booked a most enviable king room as it looked lovely in the pictures. We arrived early before our check in time and asked if we could leave our luggage with them so we could make the most of our time and explore some of Canterbury, The staff where very helpful and this was no problem they locked it away...
