“Birthday Dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

I was taken here as a treat for my 50th Birthday. The restaurant is small - only baout 10 tables, but it feels a little larger than that. The Menu is a set price and had a wide range of options. I went for Mushroom Ravioli followed by Calf's liver and both wer sublime. We enjoyed an excellent premier cru that was not over priced.

My only slight issue (and I am being very picky with this) was that the service was a little too quick for my liking.

That aside this is an excellent restaurant set in a beautiful part of the world over looking a huge Gree.

“2nd visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2014

The restaurant is situated in the delightful village of Bearsted Kent. There is a nice garden with tables and chairs for warmer evenings, unfortunately we visited in March and the night was quite cold.Both times we have visited we had the set dinner, comprising three courses. I preferred the food on our first visit but this may just be the menu choice. The food was very tasty and well presented and the staff were friendly and attentive.The restaurant is quite small and therefore fairly intimate but it was a bit cold when we arrived (we were the third party to arrive) and only warmed up after about an hour of our arrival. All in all our visits have been enjoyable experiences and I have no doubt we shall return.

I've eaten here three times now and can never find fault. The service is brilliant, staff attentive and the food sublime. I took my Mum here on Sunday and she was throughly impressed.

“Fantastic Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014 via mobile

We booked Souffle for our parents 25th wedding anniversary as we wanted something really special and had read the good reviews . It was fantastic, a lovely little restaurant with an intimate setting. The waiting staff made us all feel really special and made sure our parents had a great time.

The food was excellent, we all had different dishes, all of which were thoroughly enjoyed. A nice touch was the amuse bouche served just after ordering and the pre dessert served after the main. They were also able to offer gluten and dairy free options for one of our guests.

We will be back next time we have a celebration.

Thank you Souffle :)
