I was so happy when I found this cafe, it overlooks the harbour and sea front, a delightful location. The guy who was working there was very friendly and my coffee and pastry were delicious. My happiest find in Ramsgate!

6 of us ate on a Saturday night, sitting by the window is a great view of Ramsgate. The place was bustling but the staff were always very attentive and cheerful, we have one of their award winning reds from a great ( and well priced uncommon ) selection. Food was a little long coming but that may be due... More

I have been to La Magnolia several times, and I fully intend going many times more. The service is friendly, attentive but not at all 'pushy', the atmosphere is also friendly and warm and in Summer you can sit outside and look across the beautiful harbour and marina. Oh, and the food... I confess I'm not much of an expert... More

The portions were generous and the risotto was perfectly al dente. They also offer gluten free pastas (not pizza) and will happily adjust other dishes, where... More
