My boyfriend and I visited this little bistro on a Friday evening whilst staying in Camber nearby. We couldn't find a single fault with the place, food or service. A cosy room that was full, the atmosphere was perfect, lovely wine and the food was quite simply amazing. We are both pescatarians and luckily for us there was only one... More

We booked on Open Table as it gets busy at weekends. We both had the lemon sole. Delicious. Great service. You will not be disappointed.

You will not be disappointed if you dine here. The dishes not only present exceedingly well but taste equally amazing. I absolutely loved the pea and mint soup, my mouth is watering as I think about it and presented so beautifully. My lamb cooked in 3 different ways was delightful and the choice of dessert was appealing. There was a... More

Lovely lunch with delightful starters (pea & mint soup and scallop ravioli) and very high quality main courses (selection of lamb and pork belly, loin and sausage).

I have to share what a wonderful meal we had at the Landgate Bistro last weekend. The pork three ways was absolutely delicious, and the pea and mint soup was fresh and yummy, especially with the focaccia that was brought to the table (an extra bowl too free of charge!). My companions also ate marsh lamb and venison which they... More

Many thanks for this review. We loved it in the kitchen when your toddler enjoyed her food. The secret to our bread is that we make it fresh for every service. Hope to see you again soon. More

We booked this restaurant for my birthday having done some research ahead of a two night stay in Rye. We were very happy with the experience - it served excellent food with a touch of that something 'special' that we were looking for to mark the occasion. Service faultless too. On arrival we were given some bread and olives. The... More

We celebrated my partners 60th birthday here a few days early as we had somewhere else booked for his big day, but we were desperate to try the food here. We were not disappointed, the food was amazing , as was the service. The restaurant was small but had a great atmosphere. Both the lamb and duck were cooked to... More

Food was excellent. Both vegetarian and non vegetarian dishes very well presented and tasted good. Service excellent. We thought the bill was very reasonable. We did not have wine.

Lovely restaurant off the main shopping area. Both had the lamb which was presented nicely and cooked well. Pudding was pecan pie. Wine was a disappointment and cost £26. Tasted like a sherry. Quite and popular place with attentive staff. Bill for two £100.

The three of us booked for a late lunch on a quiet Saturday and, most unusually, had the restaurant to ourselves. The décor was nicely understated and restful, and the seats were very comfortable. We had the three-course Set Menu: Claudi served us a delicious Onion and Cider Soup (for two of us) and Prosciutto (for one), followed by Guinea... More
