The food was excellent, service was very good, was shown to our table quite quickly, waitress was attentive, would definitely recommend, my only gripe was the hand dryer in the toilets, no power to dry your hands.

We were a party of 5 celebrating a 76th birthday with an evening meal.
The acoustics are quite loud and echoey so hearing each other talk around the table is quite difficult, it didn't help that there was a large party with screaming children also dining on the evening we went. The food was nice, staff were friendly and the general service was fine but there was no attention to detail. One of our main courses came up much later than the others so we all sat there waiting to start for about 5 minutes or so which was annoying. To be honest, I think it was just an unfortunate evening for us, this was our first visit, I had heard some nice reviews about the place and I'm sure if we had gone on another evening that didn't have a large party we would have enjoyed it more and probably stayed for dessert.

Everything at this restaurant was absolutely amazing. Staff were absolutely brilliant and food was just Devine. One problem being the fact there was a big family with younger children that were screaming and running around and it clearly stated no children at the front of the restaurant. However knowing how perfect everything else was this really wasn’t a problem at all.

Really nice meal on valentine service was very good food was well cooked had the sea bass with noodles as a main and it was lovely the only thing I found that could have made my visit better was the glass my gin was delivered in it would have been more enjoyed if it had been in a gin glass not a small tumbler also the choice is very limited as also is the tonic water on offer their is such a big market now on all the different gins just because we are on Canvey it doesn’t mean that we don’t like a choice

This was my second visit for Business reasons. The service and quality of food was excellent as was the ambience. It is clear that use of the venue for social occasions would be just as pleasant. Good value for money. Will recommend to friends and business acquaintances. Thoroughly enjoyable.

This is as far as I’m concerned my favourite place to eat weather for a private meal with my wife
Or to meet friends I have also had my 70th birthday get together with family
Waitresses always helpful never pushy act as if they are friends not yet had a bad meal

The Lighthouse Restaurant is always a lovely place to go for a meal out simply because the food is plentiful and very reasonable. Usually the food is pretty outstanding as well but unfortunately on this occasion the potato skins I was served as a starter were burnt on the ends and very hard - quite unpleasant :o( I wished I had chosen the tandoori chicken strips for a starter which was what my husband chose - they were cooked perfectly.

Prebooked a table for birthday meal. Everything about the restaurant was excellent. The quality of the food was fantastic and the service was great.
The only downside was parking. It wasn't busy in the restaurant but the car park was extremely busy.

My mother and I visited your restaurant on the 2nd Year Anniversary of my father's death. We sat overlooking the lake which was wonderful. My only criticism was that the apple tart I had for dessert had been reheated in the microwave so the pastry was soggy. It was a shame as the quality of food for the rest of the meal was very good.

We had lunch on Saturday and were surprised to find the restaurant mostly empty. The service and food were very good. Some of the menu options were different! I'm not sure why you would want gnocchi and rice with beef goulash?! It could do with a couple of old favourites for the less adventurous. I think the steak and chips were overpriced for a local restaurant - working in London I am used to high prices!

Overall it was a lovely lunch and the staff were efficient and friendly.

The restaurant has been refurbished to a high standard. We were a group of 8 and had an enjoyable time. We were not rushed and everybody was served at the same time. The waitresses are attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Will be going in the summer as the restaurant overlooks a lake and I am sure will enhance the experience. Recommend this restaurant.
