I've been to this restaurant twice now and cannot fault it. The food is really wonderful and the service is great. The portion sizes are just right so you can take advantage of having 3 courses and the prices are reasonable.

We had arranged a re-visit to our friends favourite restaurant who was awaiting a heart transplant but passed awy on that morning. But we perseveered as he would have wanted us to. This bright clean and welcoming venue is a tret. The lunch menue of two or three courses is too tempting to not have all three. Great Food, Wines,... More

Great location, stones throw from superb sea views in Tankerton, understated no nonsense fine food, with friendly, attentive staff, delicious, fresh food. It was seemingly simple but it also abundantly clear that a great deal of expertise had gone into the ingredients, prep and cooking. Highly recommended!

We had booked a table for two for a birthday lunch and we were not disappointed. The waiter was friendly and attentive. The food was beautifully presented and flavoursome. We enjoyed the parsnip and coconut soup with onion bhajis and the stilton souffle with celery and grape salad. The added touch was the homemade bread and breadsticks served with olive... More

This restaurant ticked most of the boxes. Welcoming twinkling fairy lights, an even warmer welcome by the staff, pristine white linen table cloths, and a great ambience. Everything you could ask for. The service was exceptional, and the muse Bouche and breads etc a great touch. However, we really wanted to say the food matched this, but although it was... More

Lunch here last Sunday which was a delightfully refreshing surprise for the taste buds! The unassuming exterior hides a bright welcoming interior and the equally bright welcoming staff were an encouraging start which was then echoed in the food. Though a Sunday (& only 2 of us) we were able to choose from the a la carte , the Sunday... More

I would have to rate this restaurant certainly in the top ten restaurants of East Kent. The food presentation just added to the wonderful flavours and the freshness of the food - no plastic bags here. Our party sampled both the fish and meat and as there was 11 of us we were able to see the really high quality... More

We found the East Coast Dining Room very close to our hotel and checked their website to ensure we would have a nice selection to choose from. The menu is not huge but we had no problem deciding on our meals. The tasters were just that - tasty ! Each of the dishes we were presented with were flavoursome with... More
