Service was perhaps the best thing here, very welcoming, friendly and chatty. Breakfast of smoked salmon and scrambled eggs acceptable but nothing extraordinary. Furniture a little tired looking, although everything appeared clean. View over marina makes it a pleasant place to sit outside.

Then it's all downhill from there. Came here because of the reviews on Tripadvisor. Has this place changed hands or have the reviewers been somewhere else? The furniture is shabby and not in a shabby chic way, just shabby. The two staff members on duty during our visit dressed in t shirts, jeans, jogging bottoms and trainers. Again not trendy,... More

Yes I was also fooled by the good reviews for this place, the view looked in ticking, but once we sat down the attention to detail was evident, Sad plastic tables with grubby plastic table overs, but worse than that was the attitude of the owner , who constantly berated the staff in a very distasteful manner! Ruined my whole... More

Read the reviews on Trip Advisor-where have these people been eating? Our experience was of a very different kind, Brown meat crab, possibly tinned, processed bread, Margarine!!! Unbelievable that any one would find this acceptable. Would never visit again. Would rather eat at macdonalds! Yes the view is great-shame about the food.

Unbeatable view across the harbour. One can see France on a clear day! Good food - good company. I found the owner Gary to be stimulating conversation. I came from East Sussex for a weekend, and shall definitely return here. Regards, Nemo

My husband and I were walking passed and read the menu. We both love our crab. As it was bring your own we popped to the shop and then went back. We both ordered the crab salad, we both really enjoyed it. The view is beautiful over looking the ramsgate harbour. The owner likes to have a laugh a great... More

As all the reviews state, the owners are great hosts. We stopped here are reviewing trip-advisor and loved the food, setting and chat. I went for the Dressed Crab salad. It was excellent value at £9 and was 100% fresh crab. We bought a bottle of Rioja, from the local Waitrose. We were not rushed and stayed for a few... More

Chose to go here after seeing reviews on Trip Advisor. A real change to get real quality home prepared food and a unique local menu. We had a seafood salad and a crab club sandwich - great quality local food - a delicious Sunday lunch in a nice setting above Ramsgate harbour - would highly reccomend to anyone.
