We had a business dinner in The Tartare Frigate and it was superb. The manager and the staff looked after us superbly and the food was fulsome and delicious. Definitely recommend the rack of lamb! A must visit place right on the scenic Broadstairs coast.

Very steep stairs to climb to this restaurant but well worth the effort. They have two sittings on Sundays, 12.30 and 3.30. The staff work very hard because the place is full. The menu is great and 4 courses cost £19. The staff are very friendly and efficient - the food is great! Wonderful place with views out over the... More

The fish dishes we ate for our lunch were imaginative, well cooked and flavoursome. Service was great too. Would definitely recommend.

We picked this restaurant for the TripAdvisor reviews - spur of the moment trip to broadstairs so didn't know the area... very friendly welcoming staff - they deserve 5 stars. The food was ok, nothing remarkable or exciting on the menu .. it's like the decor very traditional, very boring vegetables. Walking back to the car I wished we'd picked... More

We love seafood, and we certainly weren't disappointed with the food we had this lunchtime. I'm not going to detail everything we had, suffice it to say that we ate from both the a la carte and daily specials, and we certainly weren't disappointed! The staff had the perfect balance of being attentive without being intrusive. As this was a... More

We visited the Tartar Frigate on a Friday night in November having booked an hour or so before. The pub was very busy - with live music on - but the upstairs restaurant was pleasantly full. I had two courses - a main (Fish Pie) and a desert (Panna Cotta) from the excellent value set menu. My partner had two... More

Absolutely great. All aspects were top hole. Be it quality, quantity, service, decor, or value for money. Could not fault it. The deep fried squid starter was to die for. I advised Limone our house manager of this and she stated that this was normally part of the Al la Carte menu. We actual took Sunday roast dinner. As stated... More

Our first visit to the Tartar Frigate and we were extremely impressed. The food was perfectly delicious: A selection of breads was put on the table first of all. Homemade Vegetable Soup was served with croutons and crudités. Sirloin steak was cooked to perfection – no extra charge for the sauce! Skate was delicious. Chips, potatoes and vegetables were served... More
