Owned and personally managed by husband and wife team Nicki and Darragh Cartmill, Hythe Brasserie offers classical cuisine with an imaginative twist. Located on a sunny corner just off Hythe High Street, this intimate little restaurant is fresh, fun and a little bit different.
The food here is carefully produced using the best of local ingredients, homemade and cooked from scratch. The quality is consistently good and signature dishes such as the tempura monkfish and 5-spice roasted pork belly are complemented by some great classics including moules gratin and confit duck on white bean cassoulet.
Award-winning Irish chef Darragh is a dab hand with seafood, producing sublimely cooked, perfectly seasoned fish. The halibut with braised peas, shallots and crispy Parma ham simply melts in the mouth and the amazingly light crab tart glazed with hollandaise is just delicious. When it comes to dessert, the freshest of lemon possets delights the palate while the Crunchie hot toffee meringue is a must for those with a sweet tooth!
The Brasserie serves lunch and à la carte dinner from Tuesday till Saturday. Lunchtime specials change daily and the “carte du jour” speciality menu is available Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings at just £18.95 for 3 courses. The modestly priced, comprehensive wine list is carefully chosen to complement your meal.
Dietary requirements are well looked after with chef Darragh expertly preparing many gluten-free dishes among others. With space for up to 30 guests, private parties and special events are catered for with tailor-made menus available to suit every occasion and budget.
Simple, warm décor creates an intimate ambience with a continental feel and a warm welcome is always guaranteed. When the weather is warm, customers can enjoy the outside seating area at the front of the restaurant – perfect for al fresco dining.
Two minutes’ walk from the famous Military Canal and just 10 minutes’ walk from the seafront, what better place to stop and refresh!
Wednesday–Saturday: Lunch from 12pm, Evening from 7pm
