I love this place but…..Have been many times now to both the restaurant downstairs and the cocktail deck upstairs. It’s a great place for sundowners but I believe the establishment is trading largely on its location as the food and service are pretty average and the menu hasn’t changed in aeons. What is really dumb is that you can’t order food from the downstairs menu if you’re sitting upstairs, although on occasion they will graciously permit you to do so if you go downstairs and pay separately from your upstairs account(and provided they’re not “too busy”). Further, the upstairs menu doesn’t offer anything for people with dietary allergies or preferences. So they’re restricting their market, which in a retiree-heavy location makes no sense at all, as relying purely on the tourist trade is a recipe for failure going forward.

Ordered Captain Morgan dark and they served up Brandy on two occasions, Fresh oysters were rotten, seafood pizza so oily the oil was dripping from the pizza. Got terribly ill. The staff were un-helpful, don't know what has happened to this Restaurant it used to be brilliant and unfortunately i have to rate it zero.

Food was substandard to what we would expect of a seafood restaurant in such a prime location on the beachfront. Jumbo fish and grilled fish was terribly over spiced/salted. Prawns were tiny and not great quality. Chips seemed to have been fried in old oil. Steak was dry and bland. Vegetables (spinach and butternut) were not wonderful either, butternut was much too sweet for our liking, though some may prefer it that way. Waitress service was not completely terrible, but from the time we received our main meal to the time we walked out she had not visited us to offer to top up drinks, we had to get up and ask for the bill eventually and when we walked out our plates had not even been cleared nor had we been offered dessert. Wine selection was decent, and our chardonnay was very nice. One of the worst parts about our experience was that no one had advised us that if we sat outside, our food would be swamped by flying ants. The light above the table drew the flying ants overhead and they were falling into our food whilst we were eating. Our waitress was nowhere to be seen. We tried to find out whether perhaps there were citronella candles available but to no avail. Had we been advised of this when we chose to sit outside we would perhaps have averted the situation by sitting inside. Save to say with terrible food, poor service and a less than pleasant atmosphere amongst the flying ants - this is not an experience I would recommend to anyone, and much improvement is needed.

What a bad experience. First off, we were served by a trainee waiter, or this is what we assumed since he was very nervous and we had to repeat the most basic orders. It would have been nice to have been informed that he is actually a trainee and if there was just more communication from their side. Then at least you know what to expect. We waited super long for our order despite the fact that it was only calamari and a pizza, which were puzzling since the restaurant was very quiet. And to make matters worse, on the way out the waiter dropped the tray with all our food. It wasn't even the trainee. It was the experienced waiter. They did offer to make more, but we did not want to wait this long again. Needless to say, we decided to leave. We were not impressed with the service, nor with the fact that the prices were a bit on the steep side or the way management dealt with the fact that our food landed on the floor.

We order 3 pizzas which I am really sorry about. Asked ham and chees pizza we just got a chees pizza, steak pizza was bland and tasted just salty, then we asked for a spicy chiken we got a plain chicken pizza. Really bad.

This is another spot in Ramsgate that has a stunning view of the beach and ocean. Since retiring here it has become our favourite place for sundowners. The food is delicious and the service good. It is a vibey venue and we always bring visiting family and friends here to enjoy the view. However, this is almost always spoilt by the thumping music that is so LOUD you cannot have a conversation, or even hear what the person sitting cross from you is saying.

Very good food specially the calamari and the grilled hake. The service was outstanding with very friendly staff. Definitely worth a visit when you visiting south coast.

Beach view, we sat on the verandah. The kids enjoyed the Margherita pizza, fish and prawns were well cooked. We were given an extra hake to compensate for the size of the very very large hake. Staff were not very attentive and were a bit slow although the restaurant was not too busy. No cutlery was brought to the table and had to be requested along with plates.

haven´t been there for food, it was a rainy afternoon, had a couple of beers in the "smokers" bar, great place with a view to the beach - also for non smokers ;-)

Next to the Beach. Food was medicore, but not blown away. I ordered the Line Fish which was yellowtail, and it was overcooked, and you could taste it was frozen before and not fresh at all. Ginger the kitty enjoyed my fish more than I did, so at least he didn't go hungry that night. My husband and daughters' food was better than mine.

Such a bustling, fun filled place. Can see that this place is very popular in Margate. The sea food is delicious. The servings are huge. Generous. We enjoyed the prawns and jumbo fish. Service. Well the staff are cheerful and quick. But the kitchen took an age to send out the food. Bar is well stocked. We loved sitting out on the verandah… good breeze from the ocean.
