This relatively new restaurant overlooks the sea front and beach of Margate. You enter into an informal seating area with a log burning stove and sofa and then go up onto a higher level which has tables for dining. There are wooden floors throughout and there is a lovely feel to the decor.
We arrived at about 2pm for lunch, the staff and owner looked slightly alarmed by the fact we were 6 adults and 6 small children but were very friendly and accomodating. We had a superb lunch and can highly recommend the home made burgers. The menu had a lot of choice and there are daily specials. The children had hummous and chips; there wasn't a children's menu but there are things on the menu that you could share with children. Most of the main dishes were around £7 or £8.
I have found it hard to find out about places to eat in Margate which aren't takeaways or fish and chip shops, so was really pleased to find this restaurant. I haven't seen anything so nice in Margate before. My only slight criticism was that we were charged £2.80 for some milk for a baby's bottle which we thought was steep. But... given they had tolerated our 6 children we paid up! We will certainly go back to the Harbour Cafe.
