Loved the meal, we were seated almost immediately as we had booked, it was very busy so it's advisable to pre book. I thought it was going to be more expensive than it was after reading other reviews, but we had two pizzas, olives, a pint of beer and half a carafe of wine and it was £38. They brought... More

Lovely place to eat. Good menu and good food. Either with friends or an intimate meal. We went on a Saturday evening which was even better as the car park was free.

I visited Last Magnolia based on reviews from TripAdvisor and was not disappointed. The seafood starter and main were fantastic, having excellent fresh ingredients. The atmosphere was very welcoming and staff very attentive. I would happily recommend to anyone visiting the area.

Had 3 course meal here. Food was much better than average and portions to suit. Was a little pricey for me but don't mind if the quality is there. Will return again.

Visited this restaurant on a Sunday evening with some friends who live locally. Very quiet, only two other tables occupied. The menu is typically Italian of course, but I felt overpriced, considering outside Central London. All the starters at £8. I chose a stuffed portobello mushroom but was given a very small flat head mushroom swimming around in some flavourless... More

We have been regular visitors to La Magnolia. It was, and is, an outstanding dining experience. The food is great, the staff pleasant and attentive, and the premises spotlessly clean. However, it used to be a great , and possibly the only, place to have dining out experience at an affordable price. Now however, the restaurant has had a facelift,... More

Despite being busy we were able to sit outside and enjoy the view . Service was polite and food arrived quickly . Good choice of dishes and ours was of above average quality .... More

Took my Missis there for her birthday and they looked after is well. Food was really nice but the seafood dish my other half got could have had a bit more seafood about it, but seasoning and flavours were fantastic as was the service.....best restaurant on the parade.

We stayed in Ramsgate for a few days and decided to have dinner at La Magnolia. For starters we had king prawns, thinly sliced beef and bread and garlic butter. All very tasty although portions a little small! For main, I had duck salad which wasn't the best salad I've had, lettuce leaves were turning a bit. My partner had... More
