Very welcoming. Lovely food and would definitely go again when in the area.
Very tasty well-presented food. Pleasant service.
Our seating location meant it was a little draughty and it would be good for the restaurant to maintain a properly closing door to the outside.
I was surprised that they hadn't updated their "booking system" to register our booking.
Despite that I would still recommend it as a very nice place to eat.
Outstanding service, they genuinely cared about making sure we were happy with our meal & were friendly & attentive. The food was very good & the chips were some of the best I have ever tasted. Highly recommend dining here.
Finding somewhere to dine with gluten free options is getting easier so finding somewhere which is all gluten free is amazing. The choice of food is fantastic and the taste is so good so one would never guess. Others should follow this friendly and welcoming example.
The overall experience was good, my wife was impressed being gluten intolerant having an entire menu that was gluten free. The restaurant had a great location and the building was very nice.
Where do I start! I booked an 80th birthday meal, sat by the front door (freezing) had to move ourselves.
Five of us had the bavett steak which was inedible. Tough chewy fatty this is supposed to be tender and juicy. Very poor quality. The tomatoes and chips were not hot in-fact barely warm.
We did complain about our meals and the young lady Naomi was very apologetic and took a significant amount of money from the bill. Unfortunately the manager wasn’t there so Naomi was left to deal with our complaint. This is without any doubt the worst place I have ever had the misfortune to eat in, made significantly worse as it was an 80th birthday meal. Katsu curry was also indeible. I must add the food has nothing to do with it being gluten free as we eat gluten free, that’s the reason for booking a gluten free restaurant.
I'm so sorry you didn't enjoy your experience. Naomi dealt with your complaints admirably, she often runs shifts as the manager does have to have a couple of days off a week. Even though you felt the meat was tough you didn't return the meals or give us the opportunity to replace the meals. Instead, you bagged the food up to take home. The only thing that makes us feel better about this was the polite members of your party who apologised for your unreasonable attitude & thanked us
Wonderful, pretty little restaurant in the city centre. Excellent vegan and regular menu. Friendly, hospitable service and great value
Thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and food in this lovely bistro for our daughter's graduation meal. Good food, great and friendly service. Will definitely return.
Fantastic place to eat. All food gluten free. Good choice.
Food was awesome, service was brilliant really friendly.
We enjoyed great food,fab service by Holly.
A quiet city centre restaurant with a few nice vegan options. Friendly staff; good food.
Fantastic food and service.
I have celiac decease and it’s very rare that I can go to a restaurant where you can choose anything from the menu!
Great vegan choices too.
Totally recommend to anyone who just wants to enjoy great food in a relaxing, friendly environment.
We had a very pleasant meal on a quiet Sunday evening. I rarely eat fish and chips but was glad I made an exception on this occasion. Thin, crisp batter and a good, chunky piece of fish, with chips and mushy peas. The staff were lovely and service very speedy.
If you want to enjoy your meal in a pleasant, quiet and characterful venue, Oscar & Bentley is ideal.
The menu was interesting, lots of tempting ideas, service was efficient and friendly.
Good ambience, within an obviously historic building.
Great food, and excellent portion sizes, nice to have veggie options that went beyond risotto and looking forward to going back to try next month's menu. Great little restaurant with really friendly staff, seems to get very busy though so definitely advise booking.
Good value for two 3-course meals and drinks
Nice little cafe, serving some good well cooked food
We used to come to Oscar and Bentleys for lunch as a small group of friends. Food, service was always good. Very disappointing when last visited. We all had fish cakes which had bones in and tasted unpleasant. Too much potato and fish tasted not very fresh. Menu was very different too. We won’t be rushing back.
It is great to find a restaurant that is specifically gluten free and is so understanding about other food intolerances. It just makes the whole experience of eating out so much less stressful.
We enjoyed our meal here and food was well cooked and presented. A small menu to choose from but the food was tasty. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere.
Although I am not gluten free a member of our party is. I wasn’t sure sure what to expect food wise but my meal was delicious. I ordered a burger and honestly couldn’t tell the bun was gluten free. The best chips I’ve had for a long time. I also opted for the sticky toffee pudding which was also delicious. This restaurant is so good I would go back myself even though im not gluten free. Our waitress was very helpful friendly. I would definitely recommend dining here.
This is a really lovely restaurant. Food was beautiful. The waitress was so nice and friendly. The only thing that was slightly annoying, we were squeezed in between 2 other tables which was a little too close. But it didn't effect the noise or our meal. We would definitely go back.
Lovely food, no real abience and shocked to see chef and kitchen staff leaving before we had finished our meal at about 8.15pm
Welcoming environment, great service and fantastic food. Recommended.
Perfect quiet hidden gem in the heart of Canterbury
Lovely little restaurant, attentive staff and great food, what more do you want.
Amazing choice. I am gluten free and it was great to have so much to choose from and every tasted amazing. Also great for other dietary requirement. Staff were attentive and friendly.
Perfect venue for gluten free and dog friendly! Food was lovely, great portions and lots of choice. Service exceptional, with genuine people who gave us lots of tips about the local area.
Couldn’t recommend enough.
Lovely meal out with my mum, staff really friendly and helpful. Answered questions we had about the menu.
Very tasty and well presented food 🍽
Drab food with the I’m doing you a favour service. Not a great experience. No atmosphere at all. Would not recommend or return
great food, lovely staff, wasnt sure what to expect but was so pleased we went.
Great choice for the four of us. Two vegans one vegetarian and one meat eater. All catered for superbly!
Lovely little place for lunch
This is a fantastic little bistro in the heart of Canterbury. Service is wonderful, the menu is great and varied with gluten free options. The place is very cosy and dog friendly too for those travelling with pets. I would highly recommend it!
It's always a pleasure to eat here. Entire menu is GF and they also have vegan options for vegans or people with dairy issues. We went upstairs as the ground floor was busy and quite noisy. Upstairs was quiet and we were able to have a good catch up. Staff were attentive but not intrusive and our orders came quickly. Food is delicious, recommend the halloumi starter and the salmon main. As always, we were a bit too stuffed for pudding - one day!
Wonderful little restaurant, which was dog friendly but most importantly catered for my mum who is a coeliac. Dad was particularly impressed that it catered "very well for us normal people too!" We loved the tempura prawns and the ice cream was amazing! Will be coming back next time we're in Kent!
Very enjoyable. Great food, great service in a very cosy atmosphere. Highly recommend. Will definitely going back.
Amazing food, really enjoyed the meal and company. Some of the interior a little tired, but that is inconsequential
Excellent food, great for those who require a gluten free diet. Service a bit slow and occasionally felt a bit forgotten as sitting outside but it was a busy lunch time .
Will definitely return next time we are in the area
