We visited the Tartar Frigate on our first visit to Broadstairs, many years ago and had fish & chips and couple of pints. It went down in our memories as "the best fish and chips ever". We have visited Broadstairs many times since, and had great fish and chips in many different locations around this lovely town, but for one... More

Lovely food, beer and service in this cosy pub! After a walk on the beach (a few yards from this pub/restaurant) this place comes as a welcome stop.

Heard many good reviews of this place,fairly quiet after Christmas so decided to try.Not disappointed,service very good and food well prepared and presented. Well worth booking in advance as quite small but cosy space. Bar downstairs also worth a visit and lunch menu for bar is also prepared by restaurant kitchen....

My family and I visited the Tartar Frigate for lunch today. We had visited many years ago and have always said that they do the best fish and chips we've ever had. They had a lot to live up to! Well, without a doubt, they still hold their crown! We were warmly welcomed and served immediately. Food was piping hot... More

We enjoyed an outstanding Christmas dinner at the tartar frigate, made all the better by the service provided by Lymoni and the girls.

We booked a table for 4 during christmas party season, and despite the restaurant being very busy, the service we had was exceptional. The food was of excellent quality, beautifully cooked and a nicely varied menu, even though it was set choices. Looking forward to another visit in the new year.

Food was of an excellent standard, the staff were lovely and couldn't do enough. Special mention to the manager who found the time in a busy restaurant to make us feel welcomed and that we were of no trouble. Will definitely return.

We were directed here from a local micropub when the restaurant at which we had booked dinner in Margate rang us late afternoon to cancel our booking due to staff sickness. The meal proved to be very good - I had crab & avocado tower to start followed by monkfish curry, both of which were very tasty. A very good... More

Great meal all courses were splendid. Do recommend the fish curry. Great flavours. The staff were very attentive and nothing was a problem for them. Found it a bit. Pricey in this day. The room was very hot and at times uncomfortable.
