I went with a group from The Chaine des Rotisseurs and we had a superb meal. Chef Patron Ray and his Head Chef Gary had created a wonderful menu full of great flavours which were slightly different without being zany. We started with a pea broth which had slivers of scallop lurking within. A Cod Brandade was a froth flavoured with onion and garlic which worked well. The star was the ragout of guinea fowl within a ravioli casing. Braised beef cheek, cheese and crème caramel with a difference seemed almost mundane after that - but of course weren't. Although the menu was a one off creation with wines to match, the quality and consistency of the food and the imagination behind the courses will be reflected in their menus. Service is efficient but maintains a level of friendliness that is often lost in some fine dining establishments. Highly recommended with confidence.

This was our second visit, this time as part of a party of 30. The standard experienced when we were last here as a couple was also met for this large group. The menu of six courses was thoughtfully put together and all six were outstanding. Highlights were the scrumptious "Cod Brandade" and the "Ravioli of Guinea Fowl". Food was accompanied by six excellent wines chosen by the restaurant. Service was good and everything was under control throughout. Top class.

We stayed at Restaurant 36 on the Quay in the Cinnamon Room (one of the five rooms they maintain) and ate in their Michelin starred restaurant that evening (a birthday celebration). Emsworth is small but perfectly formed. The marina is small but has great views (we had a partial view from our room) and there are number of nice little pubs in the town (the Bluebell being by far the best). The room was great. The owners have been very clever in how it has been neatly fitted into what is obviously an old building. Consequently there are some low doorways and odd angles but it was nevertheless, extremely comfortable with all the fixture and fittings one comes to expect (Wifi, en suite shower and bath, tea and coffee facilities etc). There is a separate entrance for the rooms so you can come and go as you please without traipsing through the main Restaurant. The Restaurant itself is comfortable and quite intimate without being over powering and the food was very good, although our starter (pigeon) was a little too bland for my taste, but the main course (we both had fish) was absolutely excellent. The puddings were just as good and were accompanied by some excellent desert wine. They have a good wine selection (bottom end was around £25, although as it was my birthday we had a £40 bottle of Chablis!! ) and I have to say that the staff were absolutely brilliant - excellent service at all times but nonetheless, unobtrusive whilst still being attentive. The whole experience including the room was around £280 which was good value given the quality of the room, the restaurant and the picturesque location. Highly recommended.

Great setting in the lovely town of Emsworth. The quality of the food and service against the cost is difficult to beat. Great interesting wine list with some unusual inclusions. I will definitely be going back

I had been put off by some of the negative reviews but we decided to try the restaurant to celebrate our 55th wedding anniversary. It was very well worth its Michelin star and the cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant we have encountered. All the dishes we ordered were exceptional; although the individual helpings were not large, we left the restaurant replete. The service was excellent, attentive but not over-fussy and waiting times were short. The wine-list was a little pricey but the house white was excellent. The table settings were attractive and the general ambience very appropriate for our celebration.
