Visited Ramsgate for my Husband's Birthday and chose to eat here after looking around a bit. I'm so glad we did - it was divine! The setting is just glorious, overlooking the harbour, and had it only been a warmer evening we'd definitely have sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful vista. The service was excellent. I couldn't decide what to... More

There were 4 of us and although we all had something different, we all agreed that the taste and quality was superb! The atmosphere was very relaxing with no loud music and the staff worked as a team, if you needed anything anyone was willing to assist.All this plus very reasonable prices, will definitely go again!

This really is a real taste of Italy. The pizzas are absolutely excellent - cooked in a real wood-burning oven, great starters, excellent ice cream, and real Italian beers. The food is first rate, and not overly expensive, either. The waiting staff are friendly and pleasant, although they do not speak much English (they are Italian - how authentic is... More

I was so happy when I found this cafe, it overlooks the harbour and sea front, a delightful location. The guy who was working there was very friendly and my coffee and pastry were delicious. My happiest find in Ramsgate!

6 of us ate on a Saturday night, sitting by the window is a great view of Ramsgate. The place was bustling but the staff were always very attentive and cheerful, we have one of their award winning reds from a great ( and well priced uncommon ) selection. Food was a little long coming but that may be due... More

I have been to La Magnolia several times, and I fully intend going many times more. The service is friendly, attentive but not at all 'pushy', the atmosphere is also friendly and warm and in Summer you can sit outside and look across the beautiful harbour and marina. Oh, and the food... I confess I'm not much of an expert... More
