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.

This is our second visit to this restaurant and on both occasions we had wonderful service, the staff were really friendly and efficient. We sat outside and although there is not a great view it was very peaceful. A good varied menu. The breakfast was exceptionally good and unusual too. Egg, mushrooms ,baked beans, grilled haloumi and chips. Well worth... More

We popped in for a quick lunch and I was truly amazed at the quality of the food. Both the Calamari and the King Prawns were stunning and the Meze generous and tasty. I will definitely return here.

I have visited this restaurant a number of times for breakfast and lunch and the staff have always been friendly and helpful. Food good and presented well, not over priced. If you just want a coffee they will oblige, but ideal for breakfast or lunch.

I visited to lounge quite often, whether it be for chilled drinks, birthday celebrations, entertainment or comedy nights and I have recently started working there as a part time front of house whilst I look for full time childcare work. I have always loved the lounge and found the staff and owners welcoming and friendly and couldn't do enough for... More
