We enjoyed a really good fish meal with friends last Saturday night. The atmosphere is casual and the service efficient yet informal. The pricing is reasonable given the quality of the food. They have a really good range of local beers and ciders. Well worth the visit.

A warm welcome on a very wet day! Once seated were presented with homemade bread accompanied by olives both of which were delicious. Starters of brown shrimp croquettes were enjoyed. Main meals ordered where mussels - small for a child and an adult portion, 3 x Dover sole with a mushroom filling with a selection of seasonal vegetables, child's cod and frites. All were enjoyed. Some of us went on and enjoyed dessert - the children loved the chocolate ice cream and chocolate sauce ... they were in chocolate heaven! Having eaten here on many an occasion this was yet another enjoyable meal in a great setting. Staff friendly who are welcoming and helpful and very obliging to adapting the menu to children's preferences! Many thanks! Will certainly be back soon.

We are a group of friends who like to meet and chat over some good food. We picked Le Petit Poisson on recommendation of one of our group and were not disappointed. The food was of excellent quality and very good value. We had lunch there after a pleasant stroll along the coastal path from Reculver. We may not be going back as a group but certainly I will be making an early return visit.

I went to this restaurant with family on a Saturday lunchtime...we all had the set lunch menu, apart from my little girl who had the biggest and best pot of mussels she has ever tasted......:-) the lunch was exceptional!! High quality food to Michelin standard and a very good price. The oysters that we decided to have with our aperitif were fantastic and very fresh...the starters and main courses were great, well cooked and extremely well presented...faultless. The front of house staff were also very friendly and attentive with a good ambience created with the background music.

This restaurant is definitely worth a visit..as for the few unpleasant reviews on here, ignore them and see for yourself.....

Had a lovely meal on a very windswept and wet Thursday night.. Very appealing interior with plenty of choice for seafood lovers. Had the raw scallop/oyster starter which the waitress did warn me was raw, definitely not bothered by that, as I regularly love sushi! Very nice and followed by the cod with lobster bisque.. All very well cooked. Struggled to make my choice so have to go back!
Bread selection and olives free..
Service was also very good. My only comment is 'what's wrong with people not venturing out to watch the waves get blown up onto Herne Bay??' - we were the only table in there..
Will be returning on my next trip down..
