We have read and heard many varied reviews about 36 On the Quay . We wanted somewhere for a special birthday meal and so decided to book and make our own decision... Wow what a fabulous evening we had here. Ambience, service and food amazing . Plenty of staff providing a very attentive but unobtrusive service, charming, professional but not... More

Spent one night at this quaint little restaurant with rooms on the quayside of this delightful little town. We were pleasantly surprised by the standard of the room and enjoyed the quirky little touches. The fun continued as we entered the dining room through a concealed door made to look like a cabinet...much to the amusement of the other diners.... More

The restaurant is, as its name suggests, on the quay and overlooks the harbour, although most of the tables do not have a sea view. However, the dining room, although fairly small, is bright, pleasant and clean. The same could be said of the staff, who were not only charming but also efficient and knowledgeable. The restaurant has at the... More

This was a very pleasant experience. I have lived in Emsworth for over 50 years but this was my first visit. I have always thought this restaurant expensive but they were offering a £35 tasting menu plus the wine to go with the food for another £28. The portions were very small but the food was delicious. By the end... More

Great boutique restaurant, we had visitors with us from Canada & USA, they have never experienced anything like it. Much better than the usual.

We stayed for 3 nights in the Vanilla room. It was expensive at £130 per night considering the bathroom is basic (no shower, just a bath) and a bit tired. Breakfast is either in the room or outside on the landing. Only continental. There's no mirror near a plug so you end up trying to prop it up somewhere within... More

I have pondered on submitting this review as it is negative but I hope that the owners take note of my comments We booked the 8 course tasting menu and the wine that is recommended to go with it. We knew that it would be an expensive evening but having eaten several other tasting menus both in the U.K. and... More

We decided on the taster menu for lunch and were very pleased we did as we got to sample lots of different flavours and textures most of which were delightful. For me the one that stood out was the 'swede and oxtail' which although sounds quite ordinary was one of the best things I have ever eaten! The razor clams... More

We had the Valentine's Taster Menu, it had a great start with the champagne, but the remainder of the meal deteriorated as each course went on. One of our scallops was tasteless, whilst the other was fine. By the time we came to the beef rib, it was tough and overcooked. The desert did not impress either, sadly. There didn't... More

The appetiser was very good and the bread although not warm was tasty and hinted at the strong flavours in the cooking to come. The scallop in the starter was very good, the pickled cabbage and other flavours on the plate were interesting....my main course of John Dory just didn't work. The flavours are adventurous so the chef should be... More
