We went through on the 2nd January for a family meal with some UK guests and unfortunately a very poor experience. 3 of us ordered the bone marrow starters that had minimal bone marrow, one we had to send back as it had no marrow...at all and they advised we replace it with the mushroom starter due to the time it took to cook the bone marrow. ONE mushroom came 40 minutes later (pic attached) mains we ordered fillet medallions and one portion was not not fillet medallions due to the fat running down thw side of the full length steak. We questioned this with the guy in the dirty shorts who I assume is the manager and he asked to taste the meat and then proceeded to tell us it is fillet, very odd. The waitress was lovely.More

Wow, wow, wow. I am fussy when it comes to restaurants, but I am super happy to say that Chefs on Marine exceeded all my expectations. The setting is wonderful and stylish, and the waitress was excellent and very knowledgeable. She went out of her...way to provide the best service. But it was the food that clinched the deal. We had the fillet mignon, the beef brisket and the lamb shank, and all 3 dishes were exquisite. For dessert we had the malva pudding and the creme brulee. Oh my, heaven in a dish. Despite the definite superiority of the food, though, Chefs on Marine does not break the bank, and they are honestly cheaper than most other restaurants. This is a true gem, and if you miss going there, you surely miss out on one of the best dining experiences ever. PS. Had the milkshakes on a 2nd visit and it very well may be the best on the South CoastMore

The owner's son is running this restaurant and it is now open in the evenings. The staff are very friendly and efficient. However we did not think it was appropriate or professional for the son to be wearing shorts in the evening. He made no...attempt to welcome us to check later if we were happy with our food. Although we have eaten breakfast and lunch here on many occasions, we were disappointed with the meals we ordered for dinner - rather overpriced for what was served.More

Just love this place. We often go for breakfast and there are some great choices. The omelettes are superb. So is the breakfast bow with fruit and yoghurt.

We had the American burger and Alfredo pasta for mains , the flourless chocolate cake for dessert. Food was OUT OF THIS WORLD DELICIOUS. Tasty, fresh and well presented. On top of all the views are spectacular and the whales gave us a 'show' too....Pennington restaurants can learn a lot from this restaurant.More

I'm afraid Chefs On Marine, an ex - 4 star restaurant in Ramsgate, has lost the plot and become a 2 star eatery of late. They offer two beers on tap on the menu and had neither when I ordered, with no coherent explanation. The...waitress's command of English and communication was so bad that I understood about 10% of what she said. Surely they don't expect customers to speak Zulu to make themselves understood. The chef or waitress certainly didn't understood the concept of 'soft eggs'. When I complained about the well done eggs, the waitress merely turned her back and disappeared, not to be seen again until I called for the bill. "Chefs" gets 1 star for the setting and 1 for my wife's food, which was ok.More

Worst service I have ever experienced. Waiters running around in chaotic disorder & a manageress clearly out of her depth & hiding from customers. Waited over an hour & a half for food that never arrived, whilst 2 tables (of comparable size) were seated after...us, gave their orders, ate, paid & left & still not a glimpse of food for us (& our order was 2 x fish & chips & 2 x American Burgers, so not exactly complicated). Eventually had to leave, so canceled our order & left, hungry & fed up. Total train wreck...More

I'm sorry to say that today's restaurant choice provided my single worst dining experience ever. Admittedly the restaurant was busy, it being boxing day, but the lack of service and communication was staggering. Our family ordered our food and waited. And waited. After an hour,...with zero communication from management or staff, I enquired as to the status of our order and was told that there were still another 5 tables before our order was due to be plated. I asked to speak to the manager who had no explanation or indeed a proposed solution for getting our order to us apart from further delay. We had watched at least 3 other tables arrive after us, dine, and leave while we were waiting for our food. Eventually we cancelled our order, paid for our drinks and left. I will never again visit Chefs on Marine.More

Lovely breakfast at a restaurant with the views of Ramsgate Beach. The make their own croissants which are buttery and flaky. They also bake their own bread. Portions are good size and it is good value
