Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Popped in on feb 13th with our small dog..There was large selection of food on the menu. Prices were very reasonable and service was excellent. Staff really friendly and helpful. Food was cooked lovely and was piping hot.. (some classic tunes playing in the background)...not to loud as to spoil our meal. Would definitely recommend for breakfast 5 out of 5 I will definitely pop in on our next visit Broadstairs.More

We visited this restaurant on 5th October for lunch and both decided on the seniors roast lamb, an excellent choice. Plenty of lamb, beautifully cooked accompanied by carrots, cabbage, sweetcorn, peas and broccoli plus roast potatoes, all perfectly cooked and accompanied by a bowl of...mint sauce. Served with a cup of coffee all for the price of £11.99 each! Served by very friendly staff in a clean establishment. 100% recommend this restaurantMore

Amazing find. We had the most enjoyable meal over the weekend. Myself and hubby had Haddock and Chips, this was definitely the best Haddock and Chips I can ever remember having. Homemade Chips and the freshest tasting fish. Children both had children portions and they...looked a decent size and they both enjoyed them. Son had Cheeseburger and daughter had scampi. Staff were so friendly and helpful too. Can't wait to go back and have fish and chips again. Might even get to try a dessert next time too.More

Fish was so fresh and the batter crisp and light. Service was very good, been here before and wasn't disappointed once again.

After reading all of the positive feedback we thought we would try the food, was we disappointed, I ordered omelette and chips with peas, the chips were luke warm and soggy, the peas were dry and hard, the only thing that was edible was the...omelette. Not an enjoyable experience.More

Found this by looking on trip advisor, it was clean and cosy and seemed to have lots of regulars in there, all ready to recommend. The service was great and quick and food really nice, will definitely go back there again.

Down on holiday and went for fish and chips in this restaurant, as advertised on a board outside. Not busy, and found a couple of single seat options, either of which would have suited. An older lady came out from the kitchen and told me...off for not having waited at the door to be seated. I apologised and left. Disappointing as a first impression.More

I have eaten in and mostly have take-away. Food is very good quality, staff are all friendly. The chicken and mushroom pie as a roast dinner is fabulous.

From start to finish, service was excellent. Food was fresh and tasty, fish and chips best in town. Staff very friendly with a nice touch of humour, made the visit with family from Canada very enjoyable.

A beautiful tea shop in the main towny bit of Broadstairs. We only went for desserts but these were very good and served in an efficient and friendly way so we ended up staying for wine etc. Decor is aqua, as might be expected.

Found this little gem today after doing the escape room around the corner which we had been to for my daughters 9th birthday treat. The food was delicious, freshly prepared and piping hot. The staff were so lovely and when I asked if we could...have the cake we had brought, they took it from me, put the candles on it and came out with music playing all singing happy birthday! They gave us plates, a knife and little pot of cream to have with it. Very reasonably priced and worth every penny. Will definitely go back.❤More

We came here for lunch a few days ago. The meals were generally ok and certainly fresh, but the chips were just awful - there was a strange smell coming off them and when I tried them, they tasted of old, rancid frying oil. I...couldn’t eat them at all, neither could my daughter. Such a shame, as the fish we had was very fresh (even if the batter was rather orange!), but without good chips, what’s the point? I appreciate they were home cut chips, and that the cost of cooking oil has rocketed, but you can’t fry in old oil that leaves this kind of a taste, without spoiling the rest of the meal. Really wanted to love this place given all the reviews and its history, but sadly won’t be going back.More

We were looking for somewhere to have Sunday lunch after our walk. We’ve been to Aqua 43 before for great fish & chips so were delighted to see they served roasts. We were starving so had chilli & mango prawns to start with which were...excellent. I had beef and hub had chicken. Both came on large plates with generous portions of meat, a great selection of veg, Yorkshire, stuffing and delicious gravy. Excellent value too (half the price of some venues) so thank you for feeding us so well on a cold dayMore
