Proper French Cooking

A wonderful way to spend a summer evening-a table outside the restaurant with a magnificent view, friendly service and an interesting menu cooked with skill. Not the cheapest restaurant in Ramsgate but excellent value for money given the top quality ingredients used. We'll definitely return soon.

Small, friendly restaurant, above the harbour. Lots of fish available from the menu as well as meat. we had sea bass, mussels and the pork belly - all very good. The white chocolate crème brulee was very tasty.

This was a great find close to our hotel (Royal Harbour), the restaurant is really cosy and lovely. The service and food was excellent, I couldn't fault it, nice extra touches with olives and bread and palette cleansers between courses. We went on a Friday evening and just managed to get a table but I would advise booking if you... More

This is a superb little restaurant overlooking the harbour. An excellent range of food wines and good service. I am just sorry when I was here at the start of this month it was not open for Sunday lunch which it is during Bank Holidays and Ramsgate week.

You simply have to taste it to believe how well this chef infuses French flavours into classic English dishes. Rustic atmosphere and fantastic view overlooking the harbour. Don't miss this dining experience if you're visiting Ramsgate.

Dropped in for an evening meal. Warmly greeted and free bread and dips appetiser. We had chicken and cod dishes which were both very good. Did not strike us as particularly French, we'd say generally wide breadth of food. The cod for example was served with a tomato salsa spicy sauce and had a nice onion bhaji (I think) with... More
