“"Wow what a place"”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

We ate at the Terracotta on 13th June 2014 and were so impressed again on the 14th June 2014. The food we found to be outstanding, and this is backed up with exceptional service. We went here after reading the reviews on this site and all I can say Is they are 100% right. We would not hesitate to recommend the Terracotta and are looking forward to our next visit

“Excellent Italian food.”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

We visited this restaurant on the evening of 21st May and were delighted with both the service and the quality of the food. The restaurant is much larger than it appears from outside but still retains and intimate feeling. The proprietor and his wife could not have been more friendly and helpful. My wife ordered the Calamari for starters and received a large plateful which she said was absolutely delicious. The same was true of my parma ham with cherry mozzarella balls. The fillet steak that I had for a main course melted in the mouth. It was fortunate that the proprietor 'dissuaded' me from a side order of vegetables; the green beans together with the potatoes were more than sufficient. The house wine was very good. As my wife does not drink I had 2 glasses of the house red, but for others there are some excellent wines available at prices rising to £300+ per bottle. However there are also plenty in the £20 to £30 category. Excellent food, excellent service. I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant.

“Still very good!”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

I wrote what was then the first Trip Advisor review for this restaurant in June 2011. I found the Terracotta very good then, and judging by the recent reviews and my own experience there this week, it has maintained its high standard. Hythe is fortunate to have several good restaurants and this is one of the best. Good Italian food cooked up by the owner and served by his wife, who always make their customers welcome. Recommended.

“Beautiful food , relaxed atmosphere”
Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

Such a lovely relaxed atmosphere, informal dining at it's best.
We started with the mussels (huge portion) and the roasted pepper and halumi .
Mains, seafood spaghetti , chicken rolled with spinach and mushroom . Had to keep trying each other's as it was all amazing. Came to about £20 each (until we added wine)
My only regret ..... I couldn't squeeze in one of the homemade puds !!
Would happily recommend to couples and families

Thank Jenny H
