Restaurants in Margate

You can’t miss out on its food when in town. It has numerous award-winning dining spots and world-renowned restaurants worth saving up for on your trip to try the flavors Margate boasts.

  • Angela’s: Margate is a seaside town, so you can’t skip its seafood with stunning beach views. If that’s what you’re after, you can’t go wrong with Angela’s, a Michelin-starred seafood restaurant specializing in local seafood and vegetable-based dishes. Depending on what’s freshly delivered from boats every morning, the menu in Angela’s changes. But some of the must-try dishes are rock oysters, mussels, lobster, and thornback rays.
  • Dory’s: Around the corner from Angela’s is Dory’s, a seafood bar serving raw, pickled, cured, and baked seafood cuisines and vegetable-based dishes. Like its sister restaurant, the menu changes depending on what’s freshly caught that day. However, what makes Dory’s different is its excellent selection of English wines. It also has the best view of the sea out of all restaurants in Margate.
  • Ralph’s: If you want to experience what an award-winning pizza tastes like, stop by Ralph’s. This pizzeria is a finalist in the 2021 National Pizza Awards, so you can raise your expectation when ordering pizza. Some of its best-sellers are the Fontina and Artichoke, Smoked Filetto, and Nutty Date for vegans. Besides pizza, there are also salads and cold beverages to complement your meals.
