Modern and Friendly

Visited a few times and have not been disappointed. Modern style décor, comfortable and clean. Very convenient for the sea front. The meals are well presented and are good value. The staff are very friendly and most importantly children are welcomed.

Have dined here a few times and have never been disappointed yet. The Sea Bass and the Garlic Prawns are to die for and the Salmon Fishcakes just sensational. Service has always been tip-top but haven't been when it is really busy. I wish it was just round the corner from where I live. One point however, is that the... More

Popped in for lunch on a sunny Saturday. We were ignored by all three of the staff, despite fetching our own menus, until we walked out. No idea what the food is like.

Local bar/restaurant with live music most nights. Food is varied and reasonable for the price. Menu is a little limited especially for veggies. Staff are very friendly and attentive

Cod and Chips, al fresco, freshly cooked, very tasty and good size portions, friendly staff served it with a smile. Plenty of places serving fish and chips, however we are pleased that we chose this one.

Just of the sea front in Tankerton, Whitstable, sits the Lounge Bar and Restaurant. A little gem serving freshly prepared food, with a smile. Whilst they serve all the regular light meals one would expect with a sea side bar and restaurant, they also have a selection of Mediterranean foods including grilled haloumi cheese and other Cypriot dishes. The staff... More
