“My first visit but other 3 had all eaten here before”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2012

I have known about this restaurant since it opened but had not eaten there until last night.

Every thing about the place is good the staff smile and are very busy looking after all the customers. Every table full.

Very nice wine list with good selection of wines, The wines are slightly expensive.

The choices of food is excellent, There is something for everyone, well cooked and thoughtfully presented. The sorbet was a nice touch.

All in all a very enjoyable evening.

“Excellent warm but unfussy service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2012

Was busy with at least 3 parties going on at lunch time, but still gave us lots of attention, water and fresh bread brought automatically.

Light goat cheese tart perfectly cooked veg and lovely textures in the chocolate caramel torte. This and then Deesons were my 2 favourite meals during a week's stay in Canterbury.

“The Restaurant that makes you feel special!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012

Went with friends over on holiday and we wanted something a little more upmarket than the usual in the area. Couldn't have made a better choice. A set meal with a very good choice. Lots of little extras and the attention was second to none. Not rushed at all. Wine list very good, but was a little expensive. The sort of place you feel you can really "dress" for.

“Excellence is normal here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012

We are regular visitors of this establishment and we keep going back because we love it so much! It's a bit pricier than usual for this area but worth every penny. The staff are great and they make point of getting to know their customers, nothing is too much trouble and the service is excellent. The food is always superb and the menu changes regularly. This is not a meal to be rushed, it is a dining experience to be enjoyed.
