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.
Had a fab Sunday Roast here at the weekend. The Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding were sooooo tasty.... Will definitely call in again when next in Margate.....
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!
We had a great meal and would return.
Fantastic restaurant and fantastic food. Always a pleasure to dine at The Buoy and Oyster. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food is amazing.
I think you would benefit from some fancier glass ware The stair case to the resto doesn't smell fresh and hasn't the last two times I've been The food is amazing The lay out of the menu is fab I love the menu it was great for everyone Service was fabulous like absoloutley incredible We were treated so well Thank you so much we will be back soon. My mum and dad can't get seafood in Switzerland so easily and so fresh so they really really enjoyed themselves
Great food, lovely views of the beach and reasonable prices.
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
I organosed to have dinner here for my boyfriend's birthday. The restaurant organised a table with a viewindow, as well as a birthday card and glass of fizz for him. We had a lovely evening, the food was delicious and Tasha our waitress was excellent. 100% recommend this restaurant foreviews anyone who loves seafood!
We could not have asked for a more welcoming experience during our visit to Buoy & Ouster. Our food was amazing matched with the stunning views over Margate main sands as the sun went down. We will defo be back and recommending it to our friends and family.
First visit, beautiful setting coupled with an amazing view. Excellent service, fab food and drinks. Can’t believe we’ve never been before. Highly recommended.
I highly recommend this restaurant. The food and service were equally amazing. We went for my husband's 40th birthday and will definitely be returning.
Customer service was exceptional. Food was served very quickly and it tasted delicious. I would definitely go there again.
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.
Great food and service, my friends birthday so the card and free drink was very thoughtful, thank you.
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
I had been looking forwards to visiting Buoy and Oyster for a while and it lived up to my expectations!
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 love your restaurant. Me and my partner are planning to visit every year for our anniversary as we had out first date there. We and our friends had a lovely meal the other night and wrote a tripadvisor review earlier. Keep doing what you're doing! :)
We had a fabulous evening, waiting staff were great and fiod was delicious. Thank you. We will be back!
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!
