Harden's says

MSC-certified "catch of the day" seafood, seasonal vegetable dishes, a wine list comprised largely from English vineyards and eco-friendly credentials make Angela's a place that makes you feel good in a multitude of ways.

“Very dinky” it may be, but Lee Coad & Charlotte Forsdike’s relatively new café-style restaurant is “just brilliant” in all other aspects; “the food is fantastic, delicious and characterful” (focusing on the “freshest fish ever”), and the location makes it “handy if visiting Turner Contemporary”… in fact, the “only complaint is it's so popular it’s hard to get a table!”.

Lee Coad and Charlotte Forsdike’s “homely” three-year-old is proving “a great addition to the local food scene”: “a tiny (so slightly cramped), bright, café-style resto” (26 covers, plus open kitchen) “near the front in the chic part of hipster Margate”. The focus is on fish and “sustainability is at the heart of everything they do”; the end result is food that’s “unussy” but “sublime” alongside service that’s “warm and friendly” (if “at the limits of what’s possible in the space”). “Hard to get into but definitely worth persevering!”

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"Local fish and seafood are the keynotes, beautifully cooked, often with an unusual aspect, plus modern-style wines and local beers, all correctly served by pleasant and helpful - when needed - staff. Small bright restaurant with big bright ideas."

"The freshest fish, cooked to perfection. An interesting and reasonably-priced wine list which changes regularly. Very friendly and engaging staff. Probably the best fish restaurant in the Southeast."
