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

This was a few years ago a lovely environment to eat some brilliant vegetarian food. They now have NO veggie food available at all. So Xmas meal at this place impossible.

Ambrette K, Manager at Ambrette Restaurant at Rye, responded to this review

Dear nanajay2015, I do not understand what has led to you leaving such an unfounded review of us. All of our menus have a range of vegetarian options to suit different tastes, and here at The Ambrette we in fact pride ourselves on our ability to cater for all dietary requirements, whether that be someone who is vegetarian, vegan, or...

Different, fresh and really interesting food combinations. Every plate of food was a surprise, including the little amuse bouches. The service was excellent too with helpful knowledgeable staff.

Fabulous food, charming service. Exquisite flavours, making us savour each bite. Several unexpected small courses - soup, sorbet, delicate sweets. And everything gracefully presented and described to us.

The food and service here are amazing. The young ladies who served us knew every last detail about the food they were serving. Don't go here expecting a curry, this is not what it is about. I have visited India on three occasions and have to say that the food here compared well, especially the dhosa.

As a vegetarian, I can honestly say this was probably the best vegetarian meal I have ever had! The food is exceptionally good, with a very creative use of ingredients and each course was beautifully presented. We could not believe how very good our meal was - from the amuse bouche to the complimentary Granita. The value for money was... More

Although recommended, with friendly, helpful staff who are attentive yet unobtrusive, the restaurant lacks atmosphere. It is a Goan restaurant and so the menu looks interesting. I enjoy an adventure with food, savouring different flavours, but the food here, sadly,did not fulfil expectations.

Spotted this place on TripAdvisor and it looked interesting. Had a wonderful meal on a quiet night. Really excellent food, even for a vegetarian like me. The food was off a consistently high quality with great attention to flavour but with a subtlety that sets it far apart from the conventional Indian (Bangladeshi) restaurant. This is an amazing place to... More

We were fortunate to visit on a lovely sunny evening so the patio doors were open overlooking the old atmospheric stone wall and church windows opposite, which set the scene for a lovely family meal. The waiter was attentive all evening despite the restaurant getting quite busy. The food was perfect and they provided dishes for the children in our... More
