Great place, great view, great service. Interesting dishes and wonderful seafood when it's in season. Some of the dishes can be expensive but many are affordable - great lunchtime specials. Give it a try

Our daughter and her husband treated us to a meal here for my husband's birthday. It was a lovely evening in a very intimate environment, overlooking the harbour. The menu was varied, with an emphasis on seafood for the starters. The mains were beautifully cooked and decoratively presented. My venison wrapped in panchetta was pink in the centre, cooked to...

A snatched afternoon together ends in cullenry delight. A fantastic menu with something for every taste. The service was faultless and the food was superb. Cooked to perfection and just enough to be value for money whilst leaving enough appetite to share desert. Booking for an evening meal would be a must.

Visited today for lunch and it was really pleasant. The waitress was friendly and efficient, all three courses for both of us were delicious and there was great variety for more adventurous tastes too. And the bill was under £85 even though we ordered on of the most expensive dishes and had a bottle of wine. Thoroughly recommend.

Gourmet food Tonight our eight course dinner in Bon Appetit was stupendous. I travel all over the world and this was without doubt the highlight of my year. Mark Donna and their family produced an outstanding series of courses not to be bettered. If you are looking for gourmet food beautifully presented you cannot do better than this.

Came to Ramsgate to visit family. Had a really nice freshly cooked meal. The food was honestly great. I rarely go places that I could cook better myself, and this was tip top. The chef came out to say Hi to everyone. Nice chap. Good location and good views - make sure you book in advance!!

I had a wonderful winters evening meal tonight, the freshest produce I've had in a long time and fantastically cooked. There is a great ambience and the staff are kind and helpful.

Quite apart from the stunning location this has to be one of the best restaurants for food and service I've been to in ages. Nothing was too much trouble for the lovely waitress and the kitchen didn't even blink to accommodating the always difficult dairy intolerant me! Will be back when next in sunny Ramsgate
