Dover


...has a great variety of restaurants to offer, so dining out can be a real thrill. There is excellent choice available, enough choice to delight all sorts of tastebuds and at all sorts of price levels, from the very good value to the expensive. Pictured here are some of the local delights. On the left hand side the all newly designed Olive Tree Restaurant at the plush Ramada Hotel, certainly worth a visit, a venue for those who love international cuisine, and ideal for that special occasion.

Left to right below.....two central and very popular restaurants of different style...La Salle Verte, and Chapter 8 Chinese. See listings below.

    Last night I once again dined with Karen at The Marina Hotel and once again we were treated to an evening of fine dining with excellent service. I have yet to eat anywhere that compares with this experience, it's like being a judge on the finals of one of the Masterchef programmes, absolutely perfect.6 January 2013   15:34

    "Cat among pigeons, on a delightful bed of garden fresh rocket..."

    A poser, I know, but, is there, can there be some news of the delights awaiting we vegetarian visitors?
    [I am that shameful chimera of a vegetarian in that I enjoy cheese, but not eggs. Not, however a Lib-Dem vegetarian. I don't alter my diet to differentiate between 'power' lunches and the ordinary sort.] 11 March 2011   12:16

    Well done with those reports there Bern. You could be our roving food critic..very interesting. This is a quiet page and hopefully mostly up to date but although a quieter page has still generated something like 17,000 viewers.11 March 2011   09:45

    We have just had dinner at The Allotment for the first time. What a fab place! The food was proper food that tasted of what it was, the music was at exactly the right pitch, the service was impeccable and charming. The amuse bouche beetroot salad was earthy and tasted of real beetroot - sounds funny, but beetroot is often over cooked or pickled and this was real beetroot. It was a delicious meal in really pleasant surroundings. We will be going again soon, and when we have guests it is the place we will take them. A truly enjoyable experience.4 March 2011   21:44

    Just one more: What is up with Cullens Yard? Lunch there yesterday was such a disappointment. The young waiters were charming but not very skilled, the maitresse d was charmless and socially inept and appeared reluctant to go the first mile never mind the extra mile. The panninis were rubbery and tasteless, the moules were great but served without bread, spoon or fingerbowl (which we had to catch the MDs eye for as no-one seemed to feel the need to ask if everything was good for us), the seabass was served without veg and was way too small a piece of fish and lacked any special flavour. We have tried it out now on different occasions, maybe 3 or 4 times to give it a chance, but we will not be going back ever - I was embarrassed for my guests.27 February 2011   20:16

    On a really positive note, one of the best breakfasts I have had in Dover I had at Jermaines. It had been recommended to me (as someone who cannot resist a decent brekkie!) but I had not previously had time to check it out. I am rather glad I did check it out, Fab Brekkie, Top Gaff!!27 February 2011   15:49

    Hi Guys

    It is good to see this on DF. We have eaten much good food in Dover and had some great service in the dozen years since we moved here. I have blogged recently about Amina's and about some restaurants, cafes, greasy spoons and B&Bs around Kent and Ireland.

    But if you want to wait 2 hours+ for a takeaway that has been promised within the hour the White Cliffs Tandoori is the one for you. We ordered before 7.30 this evening and called a couple of times after the promised delivery time to see if there was a hold up and eventually cancelled when we had waited 2+ hours. And the person we called to cancel had no apology but tried to blame the delivery person. Newsflash: if you are delivering a service and it goes wrong, it is down to you. Apologise, make it up to the customer, suck it up.

    A late dinner isn't a big deal or a deal breaker, but it is poor service. Make it better, guys. 26 February 2011   22:32

    Good to hear from you Merlin's Mistress. We try to keep it up to speed but always worth ringing first to make sure all good. Would like to do your website idea but alas dont have the manpower. So many good ideas but nobody to put them into action...no resources.10 September 2010   06:16

    It is good to see lots of information on where you can eat in Dover on this page...... BUT...... some of the places listed are no longer open, some are not restaurants at all and some have changed hands. Could this list be regularly checked so that it is up to date and maybe carry a link to a restaurant/cafe's website if appropriate? Just a suggestion

    Many thanks6 September 2010   15:16

    This is by way of a test. We have activated this area so that the posts will be spotted more easily. When a post is made this section will pop to the top of the page in the ALL RECENT FEATURES section. Its by way of making it a bit more active if people want to post about their favourite restaurants or their favourite nights out, their posts will be more readily spotted. We have sort of amalgamated our old archives into the more modern setup. Many thanks to Chris Tutthill as ever for the extra work.

    If anyone has any queries let me know.22 April 2010   16:09

    Tez the County Hotel was already there included in our list, but have now added the name Christo's to it ...thanks for that info. County Hotel is under C rather than The. Glad you enjoyed it. Hope they do well over there, they've had a lot of uncertainty to contend with over the DTIZ development.

    Thankyou for earlier post God !lol We can always use a bit of help from on high!17 April 2010   18:55

    How about Christo's at the County Hotel Paul?? Really had an enjoyable experience down there today and its open to non hotel guests, see below:

    Hi all,

    Just thought I'd post about our experience today at one of Dover's restaurants.

    For a change we decided to go out for Mothers Day and booked in for the Mothers Day menu at Christo's Restaurant in the County Hotel. We've never actually been there before as we've never been inspired by the outside of the hotel being that is hidden below Burlington House but once you've stepped inside you have entered a clean, well decorated and welcoming place. All the staff at the restaurant are welcoming and there for your every need. First of all we went in the bar for a drink and were welcomed by the barman who had an asortment of drinks for you to enjoy and then we enjoyed the ambience of the bar which was clean, welcoming and well decorated with pot plants and wood pannelling.
    Afterwards we were taken from the bar and into Christo's Restaurant where we were all made welcome. The waitresses were very quick are taking down our orders and also very nice to their customers. The room itself is huge and cleanly decorated with wooden pannelling on the walls, and artistic pieces of work to make you feel relaxed and comfortable. The view outside where we were as well was nice even with Townwall Street outside as we could see the seafront.
    All the food was freshly prepared with fresh vegetables and an asortment of meat for the carvery - beef, turkey and pork as well as a vegetarian tart option that my mum really enjoyed. The chef was also really helpful in helping us dish up our food and allowing us time to choose what we wanted and try new options.
    The whole place is welcoming, friendly and has a warm atmosphere. You do not feel rushed and are allowed to relax and enjoy the food cooked on the premises and just have a nice time in a very nice setting.
    Even though the outside is unappealing, the inside is welcoming and friendly, the staff are the same and extremely helpful and the food enjoyable.
    I recommend Christo's at the County Hotel to anyone and give it 10/10 as we also very much hope to go down there again. Todays menu of a starter (we had soup), carvery (turkey/beef/pork or vegetarian option) and a desert (strawberry cheesecake/chocolate gateau or lemon merangue) plus tea/coffee with chocolates at the end cost 12 each and I very much recommend you all look for the deals as the place is really nice.

    The reason The Arlington wasn't on the list was that they had closed down and the restaurant had been empty for at least six months to my knowledge, I hope the meal in December was as good as previous. Thanks for the info I will contact them for their opening times etc.7 February 2010   10:46

    Didn't see it mentioned on your list but me and the wife went to The Arlington along Snargate street the other night, had a great meal and great service, although it was a quiet night with only 2 other guests it was a really enjoyable evening.

    And before you ask, we have booked a night in December, we are both having the Festive menu
