We visited Kent for the British Open and stayed just up the road from the restaurant. It was a very busy time but the staff were very accomadating for us and although they were busy they managed to fit us in and still deliver good service and food. We ended up going twice as it ticked all the box's for us. The atmosphere is quite authentic, we love our red wine so we appreciated the wide range on offer from many regions in Europe.
If you are in Ramsgate and looking for a fun night out I would totally recomend it.

It looked busy compared to the other restaurants, so we thought it must be a good place. The reason it was busy was because they were so slow serving! When will these places realise that if the customer has a drink, they will be happier and more patient. The beers eventually arrived (after near on 30 minutes) but we gave up waiting for the food order to be taken. The waiter was just rude and slow. We ended up eating a few doors down, took our drinks with us - when we were midway through our mains at the other restaurant, the table that were sat next to us in the Italian were getting there food!

I can't tell you anything about the food as we didn't stay that long. We sat outside and waited to be served. We had to wait 25 minutes just to get a drink. Then another 20 minutes later the manager came to take our order issuing lots of apologies. Then mid way through the order, and without even a single word in our direction he left to suck up to a group of locals that had arrived. He slobbered on them for 15 minutes and looked like he had no intention of completing our order so we took our custom elsewhere. I felt extremely embarrassed for our host in Ramsgate. The manager should be ashamed of himself for such rude and thoughtless behaviour.

My friends and I spent a lovely afternoon in the sun sitting outside of La Magnolia on Sunday afternoon. We had amazing Crab Gnocchi, Lobster Ravioli and a very meaty meatloaf dish for the man in our group! The food was well presented and absolutely delicious - the gnocchi is no longer on the menu but they are happy to still make any previous menu items if requested! The staff were very friendly and attentive - Alfred and Luca made our afternoon so enjoyable that we stayed several hours. Beautiful views over the harbour and a family feel to the decor of the restaurant. They also have their own pizza oven. Highly recommended - thank you Alfred and Luca for a lovely, lazy Sunday afternoon.
