The owner is a friendly and welcoming fellow. His food is always amazing and I always enjoy my visit every single time. I am so sad that he is looking to sell because this really is a firm favourate of mine.

The owners give a really personal service and will make what you want - I'm not keen on bacon, so had one of the pininis with brie and salad! Always a lovely atmosphere in here - I take everyone I know here when they visit!...More

Went here recently with some friends. Lovely brie, cranberry and bacon sandwiches, good coffee, friendly staff. Would possibly go back... but a note to the noisy kitchen staff - try not to slag off the 'lazy' teaching profession at the top of your voice, you...More

As from the 22nd March 2013 Lilly's Bistro has changed ownership. Ian & Jules Darker-Larkings would like to thank all customers for their support and business over the last couple of years. We have had an amazing time and met many fantastic people, some of which have been gracious enough to take the time and write a review on here. As Lee & Tina take Lilly's forward we really hope that you all continue to show your support to Lilly's and continue to visit when you are in Margate. Thank you and Goodbye. Ian & Jules Darker-Larkings
