Ask not what you can do for your country; Ask what’s for lunch!

noun: bistro; plural noun: bistros
A bistro /ˈbiːstroʊ/, is, in its original Parisian incarnation, a small restaurant, serving moderately priced simple meals in a modest setting. Bistros are defined mostly by the foods they serve. French home-style cooking, and slow-cooked foods like cassoulet are typical.

We’d love to welcome you to our Curiously Kentish bistro in Minnis Bay. It’s open Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, 6pm until 9pm, and for Sunday lunch as well.

Our fully qualified chefs use locally-sourced, fresh Kent produce and make some amazing dishes. It’s a ‘bistro’, so everything is in a french style with inspiration from France, Catalonia and northern Italy.

You take your pick from three delicious courses. Deciding what to have will be the toughest part of your visit!

Why not start with our properly garnished home-smoked salmon, or Kentish onion soup with crispy croutons, or the homemade charcuterie plate? See, tough choices and that’s only the starters! For main course there’s deliciousness like Confit leg of Laughton’s Farm Kentish duck, or classic French style pork cassoulet, or the breast of Kentish free-range chicken. Wow, the decisions don’t get any easier! Then there’s the dessert; Curious chocolate mousse or homemade apple crumble. Do remember, you can always come back another time and try something else, because we’d love to whet your appetite all over again.

The great thing about our Curiously Kentish bistro is the ‘bistro’ setting we have here in Minnis Bay. While you eat, you can see our produce, and when you’re loving the food you’re eating, you might just feel inspired to buy a couple of bits to take-away with you!
