My fiancé and I had been to Dover early that morning to watch the sunrise, and seeing as we had our rented car for another few hours we made the effort to look up a good seafood restaurant. Reading the reviews on this place we had high expectations that were met entirely.
Atmosphere: Stepping in through the door we were met with an instant atmosphere of a weather-beatan fisherman's cabin with a twist of quality and luxury in the details.
Staff: The staff were friendly, but seemed a little too casual (it was hard to differentiate the waitresses from the customers). Nevertheless they were rosy cheeked and wholesome looking which added to the character of the restaurant.
Food: we came to whitstable for the oysters as neither my fiancé nor I had ever tried them. We got the first ones on the menu that had been caught locally as opposed to farmed. Although we had nothing to compare it to it was a wonderful experience and finally all we had heard about oysters made a lot of sense. For main we had the salmon and the lobster... Both were beautiful, really beautiful. And that's all I can say!
Value: the high quality of the restaurant is without a doubt so a part of me feels the 4 stars I gave isn't justified. My main reason for doing this is that being a young person
(compared to the average customer in the restaurant that day) every item seemed slightly stretched price wise. Had everything been £2 or £3 cheaper I would have felt a little easier. Having said that the portion sizes were ideal and the quality was high... I suppose I shouldn't complain about lobster for under £30. If I could I would rate it 4.5.
Overall it was worth the journey and we would both recommend it!
