Does any restaurant serve fresher seafood?

Having seen other diners eating fantastically fresh lobster at The Court Yard in the past, my wife was determined to try one here. The advice was to phone in the morning (as it all depended on what the fishermen had caught) - we did and we phoned back within 5 minutes to confirm that there were... read more

Our first visit in over a year and the food is still as good as ever. Calamari cooked to perfection and the haddock and salmon fish pie was really excellent with plenty of fish inside. Desert delicious too. 2 starters, 2 mains, 1 desert, bottle of water and a nice bottle of French wine all for only £77. Excellent value.... More

Came here twice in one week for the pasta and paella night,then for sunday lunch. This is a sweet restaurant with lovely decor and ambience. I have been here before for movie nights,and those are always brilliant. The paella was so-so but the pasta was incredible,then I had chicken escalope and it was lovely. Will definitely go here again.

A favourite restaurant of ours when visiting Deal. The staff looked after us well, the choice of food means you want to come back again and again. It's so lovely sitting in what seems to be the open air. It's a great place to spend an evening with friends as the food is fantastic and you're never rushed.

We sat in the courtyard which has a roof that slides back which made for an nice open air effect. The menu was very good value for money. My calamares in spicey sauce was tasty but my seafood pasta for a main was excellent. Pasta was piled high with seafood and the creamy sauce went with it well. Others had... More

Really love this place, the food, the ambience and the owners. Only glitch for me is the bill never adds up correctly and always in favour of the bar. Although it is always rectified with an apology, for me, it has spoilt the experience of going there. If they could get this right, I would go there very often.

Our visit to this restaurant last year was the fifth time we have been there for a special occasion. The food is remarkably good, as is the ambience and the attention by the owners and staff to ensure you enjoy your experience. In our opniion, this is one place NOT to be missed.
