Food looks gorgeous and tastes just as good. Seems fish may be very fresh and local. lots of dishes I'd like to try. Belly pork was cooked to perfection...meat tender and great crackling.... More

This little restaurant is a real gem! Booking is a must as the restaurant has very limited space, however don't let that fool you, the food is absolutely amazing. Portion size is very decent and the quality of food is that you would expect from top end restaurants. Presentation and value for money is high, this little restaurant will not... More

Always very good food, excellent choices across the menus on the board and on the specials board, always so well presented on the plate. Very good house wines + a very good wine list. We and our friends always enjoy eating in Bon Appetit because it's small and cozy. We have eaten there since Mark first opened the restaurant and... More

What a little gem to find in this small area. Fantastically cozy atmosphere, with knowledgeable and happy to help staff, not forgetting the awesome view. It... More

We visited on a Saturday evening. The earliest we could get a table was 8.15pm. I was surprised at how small the place is. However very cosy and has a great view of the harbour. We were really impressed with the menu and even more when the food arrived, it was fantastic. The staff are friendly but unobtrusive. We would... More

Very small but very popular as food is excellent from chef/proprietor. The mussels were probably the best I have ever eaten and I have had a lot! The monkfish was also outstanding. Lamb's kidneys and pork are good. Service is good and prices are reasonable. This place is clearly a gem and perhaps a shame it is so hidden away.... More

What a lovely restaurant, it overlooks the harbour at Ramsgate & offers a good selection of food. My partner & his Mother had a delicious paella, whilst I had an excellent vegetarian dish.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel - Albion House, as it was our first time in Ramsgate. The restaurant itself is quite small and nothing to write home about. However, the food was absolutely spectacular. We had the Chicken and the Monkfish as mains. Both were as good as we have ever eaten and the food was beautifully presented.... More
