Great food!

excellent vegan pizza but I would deffo ask for half the cheese on it next time; as another reviewer said just really a bit too ‘creamy’ but still delicious. Lots of vegan options on back page of menu.

Pros: Great vegan options, super authentic, fab staff and atmosphere

Cons: limited wheelchair access; 3 tables, no loo

Lovely second visit

The food in this restaurant is brilliant, as always. So good to see a separate vegan menu. The atmosphere is amazing. Busy even on a Monday night in January

Pros: A full vegan menu

Lovely food, great atmosphere

Loved the food, and the staff were very attentive. Sadly the only vegan desert was not available, but there was sorbet

Pizza was delish!

It was so great to find a restaurant in Broadstairs with a separate vegan menu and so many options. It was buzzing, really popular. There was a section with a sea view.
I went with my non vegan family and we shared 2 vegan starters: the bruschetta which was so yum and garlicky, and the MISTO CONTORNI which was ‘Chargrilled and marinated aubergines, courgettes, sun-dried tomatoes, carrots and olives’.
For a main I chose a pizza.. ORTOLANA with a
Tomato base, mozzarella, courgettes, aubergine, mixed peppers and basil.
It was super tasty, a bit too cheesy for me, very generous which was great but just a bit too creamy for my taste. It was huge and I couldn’t finish it.
I’d definitely recommend a visit. The staff were lovely and it’s in a great position. My family really enjoyed their food too.

Pros: A separate vegan menu, Lots of options, Great buzzy atmosphere

Accommodating and delicious

We started with the lentil and spinach soup and bruschetta, both of which were well seasoned and generously portioned. Followed by the vegetariana pizza with vegan cheese, a mushroom risotto and a balsamic foccacia. These were also well flavoured and cooked excellently. The only negative was the risotto being slightly over salted but when that's the only bad thing you can find it's doing pretty well.

Pros: Dedicated Vegan menu, Generous portion sizes, Good distinct flavours

Cons: Slightly over salted risotto

Delicious pasta

We had a lovely lunch here. The filled vegan pasta was fantastic! A real treat. There is a whole separate vegetarian and a separate vegan menu. Staff seemed knowledgable. Highly recommended.

Starters were lovely. Both mains were undercooked. We complained to the waiter and he came back and told us the chef disagreed they were fine! Has a separate vegan menu. They need to work on their customer relations

Pros: Separate vegan menu

Cons: Rude staff

Great place

Great place with a vegan and vegetarian menu, including soups, starters, pizza, pasta and dessert.
Would be a good place if you are eating out with omnis. Nice location as well, especially if you ask to be sat on the balcony in the summer. The only downside, and the reason for 4 stars is that by mistake my partners pizza got put down as vegetarian and served with normal mozarella, got thing I have noticed that it looks way too realistic and the replacement pizza arrived fast. Would go there again and recommend.

Pros: Full vegan menu, good location , nice view

Cons: Got served vegetarian food at first.

Huge Vegan Range and Outstanding Service

I can’t recommend this enough- there is a huge vegan range of starters, mains (pasta, pizza and risotto). The rosemary focaccia was a real winner. They are kind and friendly- we ate there three days in a row. While we waited for our takeout pizza, they let us sit on their chairs outside.

Pros: Big range , Best service in Broadstairs , Have seating overlooking the sea

Cons: None!

The best Vegan Pizza

This was the best Vegan pizza I have tried the vegan cheese melted perfectly and the taste sensation was that of authentic Italian pizza. Lots of options for vegans at this place.

Pros: Lots of Vegan options, Amazing vegan pizzas, Child friendly

Cons: Quite expensive, Limited beverage choices no fresh juice options

Separate Vegan Section on Menu

Lots of choice for vegans and vegetarians. Separate area on the menu for both. Suggest that make clear when ordering that you want the vegan version as the dishes are similar or if you want the vegan Margherita ask for vegan Margherita rather than pointing to the menu and say Margherita (I know it seems obvious but avoids any misunderstanding). The only issue was choosing what to have. Meal was delicious and service was good. Price was good for the standard. Stairs to toilet may be an issue for people with mobility issues as they are quite steep! Will come back. Would give it 5 🌟 if I could

Pros: lots of choices for vegans, lovely staff, great views of the sea

Good options, lackof care taken

I ordered the vegan cheese pizza, but was given a non-vegan pizza.

At the time I was suspicious but put it down to my lack of ever trying vegan mozarella (it looked, tasted, and had the texture of exactly the real thing). I'm aware many cheddars are extremely different in all those ways, but just assumed they would never confuse such an order and vegan mozarella must just be really well made.

I'm lactose intolerant, so a little while later my suspicions were confirmed and i proceeded to have a horrific rest of my evening. :/

Pros: Really good options

Cons: Unforgivable mistake made

Editing to add: I specified explicitly that I was vegan and wanted the vegan pizza, as agreed the dishes that aren't vegan have identical names bar 'vegan', so be careful!

Book a table

We weren't able to get a table (it was a bank holiday weekend) but the staff were helpful and offered us take away. We opted for pizzas and sat on a bench with a view over the bay which was lovely in the sunshine. I opted for the vegan version of the pizza verdure was fabulous - proper Italian pizza.

Pros: Separately vegan menu, Proper Italian pizza with vegan cheese, Take away available

Cons: Not all veg*an, Need to book
