We went here last night, the food execution and quality was outstanding and the service and welcome from Faith and her husband the chef was very personable. We will be back soon and would definitely recommend, thank you for making us feel so welcome.

Absolutely the best in so many ways, the host looked after us, and also entertained with her dry sense of humour. The company and the quality of food made for a sublime experience. faultless.

What a privilege! We decided to have four 'half' dishes and each one was a tribute to taste, attention to gastronomic detail and care. It was a straightforward pleasure and an unforgettable birthday treat for me very gratefully received! Highly recommended

Have just returned from a truly delicious birthday lunch with my husband. This was some of the best food we’ve had in a long time. It’s a small menu with 4 choices and we shared all 4 as small plates. Everything was beautifully cooked and...More

We regularly eat in Kent’s best known restaurants – The Sportsman, The West House, etc. – but the cooking at Apicius beats them all hands down. This shouldn’t be surprising given it held a Michelin star until temporarily closing in 2015. From conception to execution...More
