La Trappiste

1-2 Sun Street, Canterbury, Kent, CT1 2HX
Find this brasserie-style seafood restaurant, set over two floors in a tastefully-converted haberdashers.

We visited shortly after they opened, so more reports would be welcome, but 'Home-Cured Loch Duart Gravadlax'; 'Gambas Pil Pil' (sizzling garlic prawns) and 'Baked Goat Cheese with Tapanade & Chutney' set the style for starters.

'Plateau de Fruits de Mers'; 'Coconut Fish Curry with Pillao Fish'; 'Red Mullet Escabeche with La Ratte Potatoes' and various ways with Mussels might follow.

Various Grills such as 'Lamb Cutlets with Fondant Potatoes, Baby Vegetables & Redcurrant Jus should satisfy confirmed carnivores - while vegetarians also have a few options.

Desserts might include 'Dark Chocolate Mousse'; 'Wild Strawberry Soup with Vanilla Ice Cream & Hot White Chocolate Sauce' plus a selectionof pastries.

A Shellfish Bar offers take-away Cockles, Jellied Eels and Shell-On Prawns - and some greamingly fresh fish from the Ramsgate boats is also on offer.

Service was friendly and enthusiastic - but on our inspection visit yet to find its feet.
