Harden's says

A family-run restaurant and cocktail bar overlooking the beach, with lovely sea views; chef Simon Morriss specialises in fish and seafood, much of it caught the same day, and traditional roasts on Sunday (with a vegan option).

“A lovely new addition to Margate”, “this light and airy bistro tucked off the High Street has wonderful views out over the Sands and out to sea (and a great balcony terrace for fine-weather dining)”. It’s family-run by the “passionate owners”, who use “high-quality ingredients”“go for the deceptively simple-sounding fish dishes”.
