Harden's survey result
“Lifting the area of Margate!” – this family-run bistro boasts large windows with sweeping views over the sands and an outside terrace for sunny days. All reports are of “fantastic” food from the menu which majors in fish and seafood.
“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”.
Buoy & Oyster Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Delicious al fresco lunch on their terrace overlooking the Sands. Interesting menu, majoring on seafood, and some good Kent wines. I particularly enjoyed their Margate Mess dessert, an imaginative version of Eton mess but including candy floss and Margate rock! You can't book tables on the terrace, but they serve food there Monday to Thursday if the weather allows. Well worth getting there early in order to get a table on the terrace and enjoy the views over the beach. Service was outstanding - both friendly and efficient but not intrusive."
