A quaint building in an enviable position in Broadstairs right on the quayside. The upstairs restaurant is atmospheric, serves exceptional fresh fish in generous portions, perfectly cooked, well presented & excellent value - especially for big city visitors. Service is pleasant and fast and the only reason for only 4 stars is the reported resistance of the chef to a... More

It is close to the beach and is much like a traditional pub. It has dinning area on the first floor. However booking is advised as it does get busy. The meal was good with generous portion.

The restaurant manager was very accommodating to fit in our party of 4 at short notice. To make our reservation earlier to actually eat (our table was at 08:45) we consulted the menu and ordered in advance. The table was ready. We had a good view over the beach and harbour. But the service was strange. The girl serving our... More

Very friendly service. So much choice on the menu and specials. Fish was cooked perfectly. Will be going back to work my way through the menu. Was cheaper than expected, especially as we had wine and fish. Monkfish curry was lovely!

Being a greedy thing when faced with a choice between oysters au naturel and starters, I chose both. The oysters were the best I have tasted for a long time, plump with that gorgeous taste of the open sea. We then began in earnest with a rich tomato sauce on prawns and calamari, my husband and I were very impressed... More

Ate here last night & had a wonderful meal. Both myself & my sister ate 2 courses of varied fish dishes, all were delicious, beautifully cooked & well presented, main meals served with a generous selection of vegetables. Friendly service & wonderful views over Viking Bay. Best food I have consistently eaten in Broadstairs.

My husband and I visited tonight, as part of our holiday in Thanet. It was relatively quiet, only about a quarter full. Such a pleasant experience. We had to wait for our meals but we expect that with your sort of restaurant. The customer care was excellent especially as there were only two waitresses. The Lemon Sole was mouth-watering and...

Ok so we still went to the restaurant, 1 other couple also ate at the frigate. So 6 covers in total. We all 4 had a reasonable dinner, but service was not... More
