Review on Le Petit Poisson

Le Petit Poisson situated between the road and Herne Bay promenade, is a cracking little seafood restaurant and the real deal for holidaymakers and fish-loving visitors alike. It looks and feels like a family-friendly café, with a blue awning above the frontage, big windows and an outdoor area (with parasols) looking out over the little harbour.

The menu is chalked on a blackboard and it's pretty much fish. Proprietor Philip Guy has his own oyster beds (in Scotland, apparently) which provide top-notch bivalves, but just about everything else is from the Kentish day boats. You might begin with char-grilled sardines on tomato and balsamic salad or pan-fried baby squid with soy, ginger and coriander, before trying tandoori monkfish with couscous and cucumber raita, pan-fried sea bream on stir-fried noodles or a bowl of bouillabaisse. To finish, it's a straightforward choice - perhaps summer pudding, or caramelised oranges or strawberries in red wine. The concise wine list is right on target for value and quality.
