Had an early dinner last weekend with relatives visiting from abroad. Top marks to the restaurant for both food and service: bread = super fresh ciabatta, lobster bisque rich and spicy, seabass fillet juicy and lobster with saffron sauce an absolute treat. Childrens' dishes high quality and tasty. A few comical moments added to the charm: "What's Whitstable mess? [Server] It's like Eaton mess, but … [A family member from overseas] Hmm …" A detailed explanation followed. The bill for 3 adults and a child for 3 courses plus wine and juice £100. No service charge on the bill.

Went here on Sunday night and had a great meal which all 5 of us really enjoyed. A very cosy restaurant, excellent friendly service and fabulous food. Can highly recommend. I left my mobile there and they kindly met us at the restaurant in the morning so I could collect it.

Just finished lunch here after managing to grab the last available table. Relaxed but efficient and friendly service from the two front of house staff. Happy to go off menu and mix things up my daughter and I had pan fried skate with lobster butter and a steak with salad and fries. Finished with a chocolate mousse. All delicious.
House white wine by the glass was cold and good quality. A very good experience and we will be back.

WOW! God going to Birdies reminded me what good food and amazing service feels like. The service was best I have had in ages, Grace was warm, friendly and made us feel so welcome and so accommodating. Both waitresses we gorgeous and couldn't do enough for us. The menu changes often so the food is so fresh. It was delicious. I can not rave about it enough. Also I have to say the price was shockingly cheap! I have already booked a trip to go back to Whitsable so we can come here again. What a fabulous memory.
