The Dandelion Restaurant is linked to the Hope Anchor Hotel at the very top of Rye. It offers a very chic restaurant with a limited but very special menu. Starters included dishes such as pate, soup, moules, or salads while the main courses ranged from ribeye steak and chips, through Romney Marsh lamb and on to Spanish fish stew and vegetarian aubergine and couscous. The desserts were well balanced and delicious (poached pear with sorbet plus many others - yum). Tables are well spaced and the room combines nautical and Italianate design. The view from the windows is stunning. Our waitress was excellent and made a perfect balance between efficient service and responding to the humour of our (affable) group. The chef met our requests to adjustments to the dishes (thin cut steak and gentle spice) and the food was well presented and superb. [This venue is in an old building with many stairs, so not wheelchair friendly]. We have visited before and chose this as our venue for a special dinner with friends after a day in the area. We were not disappointed and will certainly return.
