“Excellent meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

An overnight stop chanced upon this delightful, friendly and authentic restaurant. An excellent meal for both of us from a sensible menu. Good value, pleasant wine and charming surroundings.

“A Hidden Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Gorgeous cosy restaurant with a mezzanine. We saw the reviews on this site and decided to give this little restaurant a try whilst staying in Dover. The service was excellent and the food amazing. Would recommend this place to all.

“The best for a special night out.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

What a place, the attention to detail given to the food is so good. it is like watching an artist at work should you look through the open front kitchen. The wine selection is first class. There is no hassle the table is yours for the night. And as for value for money this has to be the best around.

“Great food with consistent quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

I’ve eaten here maybe a dozen or so times over the past few years, and I reckon it’s the best restaurant in Dover. The food is consistently excellent, the cosy ambiance of the place is appealing, and the wines I've drank here have all impressed. I’ve never eaten the same thing twice (maybe except for the superb calf’s liver) but eating here has always left me with a great feeling of satisfaction and pleasure. I’ve particularly enjoyed mussels cooked in white wine and garlic, and a deliciously glutinous and tasty beef risotto. Value for money is very good. Keep it up, guys!
