Been here three times now and always had a great experience. A wide variety of cocktails, the mojitos are lovely. Great value, well cooked food and good service. Attractive interior design but try and get a table on the balcony if the sun is out.
A great addition to Margate.

Me and my partner are quite fussy when it comes to choosing place to have a drink and nice meal. We loved this place as soon as we entered through the door. Beautiful decor, friendly staff, amazing food and huge selection of yammy coctails. And there is a small but cosy balcony overlooking beach where you can enjoy your drink. The little detail that we loved was that you can cuddle up into blanket supplied if the wind was too cold... Also, as we have a two year old son it was lovely we were given a colouring paper and pencils to keep him occupied while waiting for food.
We will definitelly love to be back to this place!

Decided to try out the new restaurant, so I went in personally to book the table. The greeting was very welcoming and the booking went smoothly, asking questions of where i would like to sit for my booking. I decided to take coffee and sit outside on the balcony, the service was great, and the coffee lovely, so much so I ordered another. Looking forward to the meal now!

We first went there this week and went back to have a snack. The food was present well and was tasty. The weather being very hot it was a fantastic place to watch the sum go down and have a few drinks and relax. We were all so friendly on the balcony that couples were asking strangers to join them on the balcony to enjoy the atmosphere and make new friends. It was very busy - as this is a new venture please give them time to replenish stocks and realise what is popular with the drinks. Several bottle's of wine were out of stock - but I am sure this will be resolved as time goes on.

Visited Rickus last Saturday in order to sample the food and enjoy a drink or 2 whilst watching the sun set over beautiful Margate.

The finishing to this new bar is extremely good indeed and is sympathetic to the Victorian building. The bar has a quality feel about it is welcoming and overall very pleasant. To watch the sunset on the balcony we had to reserve a table, which was good advice and to be honest fair. Food was a good quality, great taste and very well presented and I would strongly recommend the chili-prawns.

Drinks are very reasonably priced with bottles of wine ranging from as little as £10, cocktails from £6 and spirits with mixer on par with most bars. The staff were attentive but need to learn their menu and drinks better. Bar tenders seem to be more knowledgeable and suitably skilled in making creative cocktails. The whole ambiance was nice which was complimented by nice mixture of deep relaxing house music and non-mainstream dance music.

Keep up the good work I can see this bar becoming even more popular than it is at the moment, and it was very busy indeed.
