I am only sorry I have not visited this restaurant before considering I have my hair done at C.S Hair Studios next door. I had heard only good reports about the food and the friendly atmosphere and was not disappointed. The patron and his wife even presented my grandson with a birthday desert with candle and music!, The food was... More

Week long break in Hythe meant trying out many local restaurants during our evenings. We turned up "on spec" of the Friday night & despite being very busy the proprietor & his wife who was running front-of-house made us very welcome despite being fully booked. The food was extremely good, the steaks being on a par with our benchmark Italian... More

We went to Terracotta for Jackies birthday, and although we didn't tell the delightful Neapolitan host it was her birthday, he surmised why we were there and surprised her with a celebratory Tiramisu and quirky birthday song. She loved it! Food was generous and delicious. Home made puddings served in Kilner jars, such as pannacotta, tiramisu or chocolatissimo were absolutely... More

Decor fairly plain but great ambience,... More

Happy to find a late reservation on our visit to the South coast we were pleased to sample some excellent Italian cooking at Terracotta restaurant in Hythe. A very small place on first look doesn't do the quality of the food justice which was excellently prepared and cooked. Had a lovely evening where traditional style service provided personal touch to... More

We visited the Tei rracotta on Saturday night while we were staying in Hythe. We had been here several years ago and remembered the food as being fabulous and we were not disappointed. From the moment we sat down and were given olives and scrumptious fresh bread to nibble while we made our menu choices, we were really well looked... More
