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

Chose to eat at this restaurant as it was close to our hotel and looked the busiest of a number on the terrace overlooking the harbour. 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

First visit having seen lots of positive reviews. Sat outside and when I saw a 22 strong stag party was also present I did feel the service may suffer but not a chance. Excellent service, lovely place to dine al fresco and a real discovery for me. From the starter of a mozzarella and garlic bread, to the beautiful pizzas... More

Monday - Friday £9.95 buys you a wonderful two course lunchtime meal. You REALLY can't go wrong at that can you? You can choose from about 5 starters and 5 mains ALL of which are great. They are NOT your usual mass-market rubbish either; they are authentic Italian dishes cooked by Italians in a wonderful oven - perfect. Without doubt... More

This is a great place to spend time with friends and family, the view of the Ramsgate seacoast is privileged, the food is truly italian and the ambiance itself is an invitation for good times. Very recommended for the beautiful summer afternoons in the England's east coast.

My Husband and I visited La Magnolia for the 2nd time and were not disappointed. Though it was a Monday night and the restaurant was not as full as last time the ambience was still as relaxing and inviting as always. The service was excellent as it was before. The meal was absolutely gorgeous... We both had the Prawns coated... More
