I enjoyed lunch at La Magnolia - we shared bread, olives and a plate of cured meat - my son had the mozarella garlic bread which he adored. Both the main courses, sausages with mozarella and the mixture of grilled fish were good. The house white wasn't very pleasant - not actually nasty - but anonymous and unimpressive - it's... More

Jumped in a taxi & asked him to take us to a good restaurant that serves late evening. He surpassed himself!! Lovely view over the marina, indoor & outdoor seating, traditional, authentic food. What more can you ask for? There was a small blip on our order, but we were brought a complimentary garlic bread. Think pizza base, melted butter... More

Food was very sub standard béchamel sauce was cold and jelly like, sauce on chicken was poor. Pasta was too al dente. Just an utter disappointment. Expensive for what you got. Won't be back

Nice restaurant with a great menu, based on Napolitan cuisine. Just one thing concerning the food: adding some spice or maybe just a little salt wouls upgrade the whole dish. I tasted two dishes and founf them both to be somewhat 'bland', but hey, that is just my idea !! Staff was very friendly and efficient. It is however not... More

I booked La Magnolia for a surprise for my daughter’s 21st birthday. I’m delighted to say that this was the perfect choice. I had arranged for balloons and a birthday cake as a surprise, which added to the birthday celebrations. From the moment we saw La Magnolia and its perfect location overlooking the harbour and the décor of the interior... More

We dined at "La Magnolia" today. The restaurant is well located with a view over the Ramsgate harbour. It's got a family restaurant feel and the waiters are well informed and professional. The food nevertheless varies quite a bit from excellent to inadequate. My wife took the "Pan fried chicken escalope topped with Parma ham,spinach and mozzarella". I had a... More

Lovely, authentic tastes (Parmesan butter sauce on spinach and egg tagliatelle!) and charming service! Very accommodating for a birthday and a beautiful view.

Because trip advisor will not allow multiple reviews of the same restaurant this review covers 5 visits. We have enjoyed 3 lunches and 2 evening meals, each of which was superb! The lunch time meal deal ( 2 courses for £10) is a must!! Evenings do not have specials but the food is superb and the new menu very nice... More

I had a pizza which was okay and nothing to write home about. My other half opted for the Italian sausage with pasta and found... More
