My wife and I hadn't visited La Magnolia for a while and were not disappointed last night. Every course was amazing! The staff were very friendly and attentive. The setting was perfect for a romantic meal for 2, or equally a group. Will definitely not leave it so long for a return visit. Truly amazing!!!!

Great service as usual, nothing too much trouble. Great food freshly cooked, not reheated factory prepared rubbish. We've been several times. Great to sit outside overlooking the harbour.

A great friendly welcome on entering. Service is good. A nice touch we were given a free appetiser. The food is fresh & cooked well. If you like Italian food & in Ramsgate look no further! The price is reasonable

We regularly eat at La Magnolia and every time it seems better than the last. The food is always fresh, tasteful and generously portioned! The staff cannot do more for you, they are always smiling and kind. Easily our favourite!
