It's very quirky and may be an acquired taste so you'll either like it or hate it. Until you go in and try it though, you'll never know, so if you're in Ramsgate for more than one day, make sure you go in. We go in their from time to time both to eat, have one of their many beers... More

The Belgium Cafe is a bit of a Ramsgate institution. Dog friendly, student retro dishes such as corned beef hash and a retro decor to go with it. I once went in for dinner and ended up surrounded by belly dancers! There is a phenomenal selection of Belgian beers, open all hours and great waffles .... what more do you... More

I never been in a cafe/restaurant/pub with so much, color, different chairs/tables and so many paintings, which are even overlapping. Even on the ceiling there were film posters.......to to to to much! I like quirky, but this was beyond quirky. The food was not bad, but certainly not special. In a cafe you expect a drink in a glass and... More

Worth going in occasionally for an expensive beer, but honestly, there is not a huge amount of attraction here bar the very early opening time. The food is ok but I'm not convinced by their hygiene standards.

We have been to the Belgian cafe several different times and we have never been disappointed. The pizzas are amazing!! Sunday roasts are amazing!!! The beer selection is amazing!!! Service is friendly and welcoming. If you are in Ramsgate you should visit the Belgian Cafe.

There were 4 of us and we all had different meals which arrived together , all the meals were excellent and huge plate fulls. The staff were all friendly and polite.... More

Booked for 4 people a Sunday lunch, we.got there at 12.30 we were shown directly to our table...drinks and main meal taken promptly. Drinks come...then one meal...5 minutes later the other 3....I would have preferred to all eat at the same time....apart from that the roast was beautiful..just like a homed cooked dinner...well worth its money.
