Great service as usual, nothing too much trouble. Great food freshly cooked, not reheated factory prepared rubbish. We've been several times. Great to sit outside overlooking the harbour.

A great friendly welcome on entering. Service is good. A nice touch we were given a free appetiser. The food is fresh & cooked well. If you like Italian food & in Ramsgate look no further! The price is reasonable

We regularly eat at La Magnolia and every time it seems better than the last. The food is always fresh, tasteful and generously portioned! The staff cannot do more for you, they are always smiling and kind. Easily our favourite!

Our Hotel restaurant was unexpectedly closed, so looking for a restaurant in Ramsgate and tried this place. The service was prompt, with no problems. The starters are all around £8 and overpriced for what you get. My main course was the Italian sausage, with spaghetti, which was good. My wife had a pizza which had hardly any cheese on it... More

We booked on a whim for our anniversary as we were staying in Ramsgate for a couple of nights, and glad we picked La Magnolia! The place itself is nicely laid out and comfortable, the menu is extensive and the staff were friendly. We ordered too much - two bread-based starters when we only needed one, followed by two tasty,... More

Had heard great reviews and looked forward to trying it out myself, now wouldn't say it was a waste of a babysitter as the food was ok, but I expected something wow, both specials had already run out at 7.20 pm so went with the prawns which were mushy, my friend had a meat dish and half of this was...

This was the only restaurant in a parade of eateries near our hotel that was open on a Sunday evening. The main courses were excellent, although lacking vegetables or salad garnish. The menu does have words to the effect that the description of each dish is exactly what you get, but one still might have expected some greenery or a... More

Went with my parents who we're visiting for the weekend. They've been before and recommended it. As soon we walked in they were fabulous! Food was outstanding and when my 3 year old started climbing the walls, they took him off and showed him round the kitchen! Pencils and colouring books at hand, allowed us to enjoy a fabulous meal.... More
