The food and wine were amazing and the portion sizes were perfect! The only thing lacking was a description in more detail of the food and wine when it was served to us! Other than that, it was great!!

Another exceptional meal at Stark. Amazing combinations of flavours on the stylish plates. Our favourites were the mackerel and the beef. Well done and thanks Ben and Sophie.

The best food we have ever had, and that includes the fact that we eat in Reids of Faversham.

Had a fabulous meal at stark for my friends birthday. The food was packed full of flavour and perfectly cooked. The drive from Bristol to Kent was well worth it. Wish this was my local neighbourhood restaurant, lucky Broadstairs !

The food was absolutely phenomenal - a shame that the waitress was quite young and lacked experience. With a little guidance on how to look after guest and provided a little more detail on the dishes, it would have been better than other Michelin star restaurants!

What a special place to dine. Really friendly, unpretentious and attentive staff. The food was fabulous; we loved every course. It's so tiny but adds to the atmosphere and makes it feel very exclusive. Thoroughly recommend if you can get a reservation!

This is a very small restaurant but that is part of its charm. The food is incredible, having eat at some michelin restaurants this is in my opinion far better. The menu only gives you an indication of what is to come, if it gave you every ingredient the menu would be huge. Ben and Sophie are so welcoming and informative and great hosts. We can’t wait to go back for another wonderful experience.

As usual interesting and tasty. Like the new later table availability as it’s hard eating in Broadstairs after 9pm. Looking forward to our next evening there. Thank you.

What a find. An absolutely fantastic meal. Every dish left us wanting a spoon to scrape up every last crumb whilst eagerly awaiting the next course. Can’t wait to return

Read loads of positive reviews about Stark and I have to say I agree with all of them. This restaurant has a fantastic set up, it’s very small & intimate but I think this makes for a fabulous dining experience. The food is sensational (well presented & delicious), the service is great (polite & attentive) and the atmosphere is very relaxed. No room for stuffiness here! Can’t wait to come back.

Unfortunately, I had to cancel my most recent booking, but, having eaten at Stark before, I consider my ratings to be accurate and valid. I shall definitely be re-booking, because the restaurant is amazing! Ben and Sophie are a lovely couple, who are right at the top of their game.

This place is in a different class to anywhere else in Kent. For exciting and original food there is nothing like it this side of London. For my personal tastes two fish courses are one too many but even then there are things to enjoy, so very little is left on the plate.
