Visited Elliot's on Tuesday for lunch; came away thinking we had eaten just a first course. The service was slow and slapdash; the crying baby during the entire lunch made any conversation impossible. Whilst the food was good the portions were minute; our waitress concurred with our comments. We anticipated that it was 'cash only' due to a lack of... More

Had a wonderful meal last night. Enjoyable from starter to desert. Food tasted very fresh: my cod was amazing! Waiting staff was polite and very pleasant. Had been for lunches and they have always been great too!

Had a fabulous roast lunch at this good little bistro in Whitstable. Wonderful friendly staff and great value. However what spoilt the experience was, having called for the bill we were told that they only accepted cash...! In this day and age it seem to me that its only builders and drug dealers who take cash and for obvious reasons.... More

After a winter's walk along the beach we wanted somewhere to warm up. Situated near the end of Harbour Street closest to Gorrell Tank this café looked inviting. Coffee was excellent and my wife was very happy with her tea. A friend seemed quite content with his hot chocolate. My wife and I had cake - I had coffee and... More

This is a great place to eat. I usually pop in for a coffee and a cake. My husband booked a surprise meal over Christmas. The food was excellent. I really enjoyed the smoked salmon. We will definitely be eating here again. Eat here you will not be disappointed. Excellent value for money.

We visited on the basis of reading good reviews but were disappointed. Waited ages for menus and had to hunt down our own. The salt beef sandwiches we had were fine (although I'm used to salt beef being hot) but the pot of tea I ordered tasted fishy. There was a large group with children next to us who were... More

What a wonderful NY experience! The best NY meal we have enjoyed for many years, and it was the highlight of our short vacation in Whitstable. Phil and Sarah have definitely discovered the recipe for success - original recipes, coupled with genuine and caring service - oh, and first class produce cooked to perfection!
