I ate here with my family on the 16 of April, Easter Sunday, we arrive just before the kitchen was closing, I only noticed this once we had already sat down however the waiting staff seemed more then happy to take us (table of 5). As we sat down we were given slices of sour dough, butter and some very... More

I knew something was wrong when I looked at the menu, which used to be a brief but well-thought-through selection of inventive and delicious seafood dishes. This has been replaced by a brief list of very ordinary and uninspiring choices. I love a fish finger sandwich, but can probably just about manage to make one at home - I don't... More

I visited the restaurant today with my son and daughter. First time and only wanted coffee as we'd booked to have lunch somewhere else. My son had a latte, which was just okay but the staff didn't appear to know how to make coffee let alone distinguishing between a cafe au lait and an Americana.In fact the group of waitresses...

We were visiting Herne Bay for the day and fancied fish and chips. We came across Le Petit Poisson and we weren't disappointed. The fish and chips were beautifully cooked and the salmon burger was delicious. The children's menu is excellent value too. Service was good; attentive and very polite. The manager also came over several times to check everything... More

Good food. Very helpful staff. My daughter loved the Moules. On a very busy sunny Sunday, we didn't feel rushed or pressured and left feeling full up and ready to take on the crowds!

We have been to this restaurant many times and have always enjoyed it. Today was different. A lovely sunny day in Herne Bay so obviously it was very busy. The restaurant was busy but not crowded. Our order was taken promptly and our starters were served within a reasonable time. We then waited an hour for our main course whilst... More

We have been going here for many years as a treat and have really enjoyed a high level of dinning but boy we're we disappointed on Mother's Day at lunch time. The menu is now very sadly limited with none of the creative and surprising items that we expected such as a mixed fish anti pasti or brown shrimp croquets.... More

I would like to apologise if you felt the meal on Mothers Day was not up to the usual standards you should expect from us, however I would like to clarify a few of the points you have raised.. The menu had 6 starters & 6 mains + additional specials, which we felt was manageable for a fully booked non... More
