Not a lot to dislike to be honest, the food was presented with a smile and nothing was too much trouble. The window table has an open view of the boats in the water which is really nice

We ate here 3 times in a week - 2 evening meals and 1 Sunday lunch. The menu is superb.

If you are staying at the camellia Hotel too, please... More

We have lived in Southend for over 30 years and have driven past the Camelia on many occasions without giving it a thought - it was just another seaside hotel. Last night we went for a meal with friends who live very close by. We had an excellent meal after the obligatory G&T's in the bar before hand. The service... More

We went for the set menu which was great value for money. Really great size portions which neither me or my husband manage to eat .Food was nicely presented... More

Meals cooked to order and fresh vegetables - not too cruncy, not too soft. Pleasant service, and hot meals.
