haven't been here in a while, Sharon has totally transformed the place. had a wonderful birthday celebration here for Hubby's birthday. Sharon and her team pulled out all the stops for a great evening. I can definitely recommend Burlesque for a special occasion or a random night out.

We had the most amazing day at Burlesque today for my Nan's 81 Birthday. Sharon and her team out done themselves with a stunning table and the food was out of this world - compliments to the chef. Thank you for making this day a special one for us.

I recently payed a visit to my favorite little Café in the world and it is looking as beautiful as ever ❤ I can see that they have made changes in their decor and have added more food to the menu. I was as delighted as ever to be there again and will be back soon!

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!

A shabby chic French Cafe serving European and South African Foods with a strong emphasis on Organic, Fresh and Modern Dishes. A large selection of vegetarian, seafood and low carb dishes are served. Our menu is seasonal and our blackboard reflects just that! Ask about our fresh line fish delivered that day by our local commercial fisherman or the fresh vegetables delivered by our organic local veg supplier...
