Yummy!

We went here for a family meal and it was delicious. I called a few days ahead as my hubby has food intolerances and they were very helpful. It was a little cramped but we didn't seem to notice as everyone had a great time.

Beautiful venue where you can sit outside & view the harbour. Very busy, food tasty, scallops very good, average price for an Italian restaurant. Slight dampener though, when we sat at an outside table with no reserved sign on it & the waiter got cross as we hadn't 'asked' him first. Overall a good meal

Met up for Lunch, had pre-booked, so after a warm Italian welcome, were shown to our reserved table by the window. We ordered drinks, and while looking at the menu, a plate of freshly baked hot mini rolls and a dip arrived courtesy of the restaurant...delicious. There are lunchtime specials or main menu to choose from. We all selected various... More

I have visited Magnolia twice now, once with hubby and another time with friends. The food is delicious and the service efficient and friendly. If it is a pleasant evening, opt for a table outside and enjoy the great views of Ramsgate Harbour. There is a good variety of different dishes on the menu, including some wonderful pastas and pizzas.

We booked a table for 4 in the window on a Saturday evening, the weather was great so I expected the place to be busy and it was but our table... More

If you can get a table outside overlooking the harbour on a warm balmy evening I would defy anyone not to think they were abroad over looking the Mediterranean. Beautiful. Service and food lovely too.
