An impromptu stop while passing through Ramsgate looking for a place to have lunch. We were given a warm welcome, great service and delicious meal. Was a real pleasure. Well done ladies, all so cheerful and friendly. Food was really good!

Burlesque used to be my number 1 restaurant on the South Coast but not anymore. Something went wrong. They jacked up their prices. The Menu got smaller and the prices are nearly double. I had their Prawn/Potato Burger. The bun was dry and not a bit of butter on the dry bun. The very nice garlic potato wedges were replaced... More

We have been to the Brulesque Restaurant before and it was excellent. However our experience tonight was disappointing. The menu has changed and it does not offer French or gourmet dishes anymore. The whole menu is printed on a A4 and options are limited and if you want to eat any Beef your options are a Beef Lasagne or a... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of having lunch again at Burlesque on Monday, 21 November 2016. We chose a table outside in the garden which was the perfect place for a relaxing lunch. Service from our waitress was very friendly and efficient. The wine list boasted a small but efficient variety. We had a bottle of Caresse Marine... More

Great atmosphere. French decor makes this place something out of the ordinary. Food was excellent, but be prepared to pay a somewhat hefty price. This is not a cheap restaurant. Highly recommended.

It is not always easy to find restuarants with a variety of Vegetarian dishes!. Well, you have to go and visit The Burlesque Cafe. I still believe the best Vegetarian burger in the world, can be found there.
