Milton, Southend-on-Sea
10/06/2019: Organised a meal for 12 people. the service on the day was excellent which was personified by the awesome young lady who dealt with my table of children and parents.
07/06/2019: Went with a group of friends and it was fabulous.


Red Chillies

Westborough, Southend-on-Sea
16/06/2019: It was our first visit and I have to say i was truly impressed, the staff are extremely friendly and very helpful atmosphere is lovely. I’m a vegetarian my husband meat eater we were recommended to try the onion Bhajis and spinach bites they were amazing. My husbands main dish was a lamb shank which was a special and mine Aubergine Theeyal with a side of rice and Beans Thoran. All these dishes are authentic and nothing was greasy you didn’t get that stodgy feeling like you can with some foods. Even better they offer Vegan nights too. I will happily be returning and even getting a takeaway. Look forward to seeing you soon.
16/06/2019: Very good food with the excellent service. It’s very reasonably priced. Lime soda is definitely worth giving it a try.


OakTree Vegetarian Bistro

Chalkwell, Southend-on-Sea, <20£
15/06/2019: It was our first visit but we won’t be returning. We’ve ordered lasagna, pad thai and katsu curry and chips. The lady who served us couldn’t explain why sweet potato fries aren’t gluten free, what are they made off, wheat? Katsu was tasteless, rice cooked without salt, meal tasted like microwave meal from supermarket. Restaurant looked a bit dirty especially the floor, dirty dishes on the table and it wasnt even that busy.
10/06/2019: Food is ok but not great and it's nothing exciting, nor original. If you don't know any better, you'd prob like it. I have eaten here a fair few times but the food has progressively become more disappointing. But having tried other vege/vegan restaurants, the Oaktree just doesn't cut it anymore.


Nuvo Cuisine

Leigh, Southend-on-Sea
18/06/2019: Once again a faultless evening, food was great, Govan was as charming as ever and fitted us in at very short notice. Maria serving us was also good fun. Never get tired of eating here.
15/06/2019: We had been recommended the restaurant by several friends and family members, and it did not disappoint. The food was very good, generous portions and high quality ingredients. The atmosphere was buzzy and the staff were all great. I didn't catch the name of our waitress but she was very funny and a great host on a busy night.


Il Pescatore

Milton, Southend-on-Sea
16/06/2019: My favourite restaurant in the town, if it's a special occasion we always go to Il Pescatore! I've been going there for over 30 years
10/06/2019: We all had a really lovely lunch in this lovely restaurant. There is a good menu with a huge choice of dishes and a board with specials on too. Everything was freshly cooked with good sized portions and delicious sauces. The wine complemented the food perfectly and was also a reasonable price. The staff were very friendly and attentive and the whole place scrupulously clean. Well worth a visit.



Leigh, Southend-on-Sea, 20-30£
12/06/2019: Went to my favourite Italian again at the weekend. The food honestly just seems to get better and better. The service is always so warm and friendly and very very efficient. Always a great atmosphere inside the restaurant and the prices for the quality of food are so reasonable. If you have never been to Cucina I would urge you to pay a visit as you won't be disappointed!
12/06/2019: An unexpected lunch to Cucina-we were going to another venue further away, but it was wet and cold, so we went close to home. So, I had mussels to start, my +1 had baked Camembert with fig, both had the King Prawns in a lovely tomato and garlic sauce with vegetables and we both had amaretto ice cream. Really excellent food and superb service. The table next to our started chatting because they had overheard us saying how good it was, and they had different choices but agreed theirs was excellent too. We floated home on the quality of the food (only one small drink each)!!! must must must go back soon.


Van Looy's Fish and Chips

Milton, Southend-on-Sea
08/06/2019: Fish and chips takeaway. Have eaten probably at 100+ different places but very few can compete...they also serve a variety of drinks including alcoholic / non-alcoholic.
28/05/2019: VanLooys is not just a basic fish and chip restaurant. The staff/owners are friendly and accommodating. The food and service is excellent and the prices are very reasonable. The menu is varied to include more than fish and chips. The restaurant has a welcoming and friendly ambience and is the regular haunt for several locals. The facilities are clean and sufficient. We have eaten here on our last few visits south to this part of Essex, I am sure that we will do so again.


Gold Coast Chinese Restaurant

Thorpe, Southend-on-Sea, 30-45£
05/06/2019: We had a family party downstairs, there were 15 of us including a vegan and a pescatarian. We were allowed to attend early to put up decorations and bring a cake. The service was absolutely excellent, the attention was brilliant and every request given from the extremely friendly and efficient staff. The food was supberb, especially the special requirements, I don't think we have ever had so much choice for the vegan/pescatarian. Also, the karaoke was great fun.
26/05/2019: Everything we had was really, really good and very well presented. While it is all you can eat, it isn't served as a buffet but as a restaurant and the quality is exceptional. The service was efficient and friendly throughout and the price was very reasonable. Next time we're in South-on-Sea we will definitely be going back!


Imperial chinese restaurant and take away

Victoria, Southend-on-Sea
17/04/2019: Great service, quick delivery, absolutely lovely, tasty food, was still hot, would definitely eat from here again
12/03/2019: I have used the same Chinese for years and thought it was great! Then I read the reviews and thought I would give imperial a try! Omg it’s fantastic everything I’ve had is lovely the beef with ginger and spring onion is amazing give it a try you will not regret it


Pearl Dragon

Kursaal, Southend-on-Sea
18/06/2019: Went to the Pearl Dragon on the recommendation of a friend. I have lived in Hong Kong for 39 years, and can vouch that the Pearl Dragon serves authentic Chinese food. Though a little pricey, the restaurant was nice, the staff polite, and the atmosphere excellent. The manageress was friendly, helpful, and elegant. Recommend to everyone and would definately go again.
14/06/2019: We went on a Tuesday night and it was quite busy. We went a la carte, rather than the set menus, as there was nothing on the set menus that excited us. We started with the Summer starters and they were good, and then followed with Schzewen king prawns, chilli and ginger lamb and sweet and sour pork hong kong style, and it was tasty, freshly cooked and nice.


Toulouse Restaurant

Milton, Southend-on-Sea
10/06/2019: Although I give the Restaurant 3 out of 5
09/06/2019: Professional, Personal a pleasure to visit. Thank you. We visited with my elderly parents. Nothing was to much trouble. Thank you special times for us.


The Bellhouse

Eastwood Park, Southend-on-Sea, 30-45£
16/06/2019: Visited today for Father’s Day and the good was INCREDIBLE. We booked last minute (yesterday) and we were so glad they still had space. The first time visiting this AMAZING restaurant and we booked another table already. Couldnt fault a thing 10/10
16/06/2019: Lovely food and service and a special mention to our lovely waiter Jack E for attentive service with a smile


Legend - Deli

Milton, Southend-on-Sea, <20£
15/06/2019: Love this place. Been there four times now and never disappointed.
08/06/2019: Thank you so much for fitting us in tonight. The pork belly starter was quite simply the most amazingly delicious dish and the Korean chicken I had to follow came a close second. The lady on the table next to me had the slow cooked lamb which looked incredible so I'll be back just as soon as I can to have that next time !


The Camelia Restaurant

Thorpe, Southend-on-Sea
03/06/2019: Food cold and second time no better , waitress very good shame as she gets the front of it all, my partner ate on her own won’t go back again
24/05/2019: First visit to the Camelia Hotel for Sunday Lunch. We had the set Sunday Lunch Menu which offered loads of choice and options depending on whether you wanted one, two or three courses. We both had Prawn Cocktail to start followed by Roast Lamb and Roast Beef then a berry Eton Mess (one to share - as the main course was so huge) to follow. The food was fantastic. The staff were super friendly and efficient. FABULOUS! Would highly recommend.

16/06/2019: We love the odd treat from Pasta Pia. this is a family favourite. Both eating there as well as Home delivery. The food it very tasty and staff are pleasant. Well worth a visit. Good selection of specials too
15/06/2019: This is a small restaurant and has the rustic approach. The staff are amazing and make you feel very welcome.
