About Buoy and Oyster

Buoy and Oyster is a family run restaurant overlooking the beach in Margate, Kent. First opening in November 2015, husband and wife duo Simon and Nadine and their team have been gaining a reputation for providing customers with great quality food and service in a relaxed and stylish setting.

Located in both the garden of England and on the British coastline in Margate, we have access to a fantastic supply of local fresh ingredients which is showcased in our seasonally changing menus. Simon and his team create well loved seaside classics such as moules frites, shellfish platters, beer battered fish and chips and of course, oysters. By using local Kent fishermen all fish and shellfish are usually landed and on your plate the very same day.

With a cosy cocktail lounge, modern dining space and an outside terrace overlooking the beach guests can enjoy the stunning views and beautiful Margate sunsets whilst enjoying a delicious meal with friends.

The Buoy and Oyster never disappoints! There is so much to choose from on the menu that I really need to come back about 5 more times to try everything!

Lovely Sunday Lunch. Our waitress was wonderfully attentive (sorry that we can’t remember her name...but she had red hair!) Our first visit but definitely not our last!

Brilliant lunch of oysters and crab overlooking Margate Bay. This was for my birthday and was just what I was hoping for. Great shellfish in good surroundings by the sea.

We love this restaurant, being local we took advantage of the 20% discount on Thursday nights and invited our friends and they too were very impressed with the food quality, Lucky Thanet.. Highly recommend this restaurant for a special night out.

Had a lovely meal with friends. There was a new menu which was good to try. Some favourites from the table were the soup, lamb and salmon tagliatelle. Someone had the veal t bone which was apparently amazing! We came on a Thursday so had the 20% off for thanet foodies which was a nice treat! We will be back again. Thanks

My boyfriend and I recently bought a house in Margate and visited B&O on our first ever trip to Margate in April this year when we fell in love with the seaside town : ) This weekend B&O served to give the 'rents a great first impression of Margate, the delicious seafood on offer and friendly people - we learnt that our waitress had moved to Margate a few months prior, with her band and she reeled off all the great music venues we need to explore! It was a lovely couple of hours spent with sea views.

My only issue was the loudness of the music. I we unable to hear the person on the other side of the table. All the surfaces in the restaurant are hard There is no sound absorbent material. So with the talking of other patrons the overall sound level was too high for comfort

We ate at the restaurant on Saturday night and had a fantastic meal. Highlights for me were the oysters and the scallops which were some of the best I've had. The service was very friendly and attentive and the atmosphere is great. Many thanks.

I can't think of a single negative thing to say about our visit. The service was the best we've experienced in a long while and the food was excellent. Worth making the trip to Margate just to visit the Buoy and Oyster!
