The Ambrette in RYE has shutdown, our friends had booked a table for 6 and the restaurant has closed with no explanation. As we had travelled to Rye to eat at the Ambrette we were all disappointed and frustrated that no one had contact us to say it had closed

Visited last week and had an enjoyable meal. Interesting menu with some unusual dishes. Excellent presentation and great quality dishes. Best to pre book from the internet offer or a tastecard as the standard menu is expensive. Would go again if visiting Rye.

Went for my birthday and ate 5 courses of excellent, beautifully spiced food. They also gave us free Kir Royalle aperitifs and a birthday cake.

The service was great, food came in good time. Meals were gorgeous and a bottle of wine was good too. I would love to give it five stars, but I really wish it had more of an atmosphere, maybe some originality to it. It wasn't plain, just lacked a little "something"...

This is a very attractive restaurant in Rye in East Sussex. My adult children and I ate here early in October and had a most enjoyable evening. The food was intriguingly spiced: my and my sons sea bass and my daughter in laws venison were delicious. Various amuse bouches arrived between courses and except for the tomato soup which was...

We have visited the Ambrette in Canterbury twice before and rate it highly. Food, service and the exceptional additional dishes provide for a good night there. This is our first visit to Ambrette, Rye. A pleasant restaurant and great front of house staff. The food was every bit as good as at the restaurant at Canterbury but the experience was... More

A spontaneous choice turned into one of the best meals we have ever had. We had different choices and each looked and tasted fantastic. I don't think we will eat anything so good anywhere else in Rye or indeed elsewhere. Well that's a challenge I'm up for !

I had visited the branch in Margate back in May and enjoyed a meal there. The branch in Rye did not disappoint. Lovely flavours, beautiful Presentation. Must try Canterbury next!

The two courses for £19.95 deal (anything from the a la carte menu) is great value as the main courses priced separately are £18-25. As well as starter and main course, we were treated to three complimentary dishes - a complimentary pre-starter, soup and granita. The food was beautifully presented and the staff very attentive and professional. The only negative... More
