Sargasso is a seaside restaurant located on Margate Harbour, Kent. Run by the team behind London’s Brawn restaurant, Sargasso is a relaxed and welcoming place to eat, with a menu of classic British dishes. There is also some outdoor seating, ideal for soaking up the afternoon sun. 

Sargasso is open from Wednesday to Sunday, serving a simple and elegant menu, with a focus on fresh fish. Perhaps you will kick things off with a glass of bubbles and some Maldon oysters served with cider mignonette, or perhaps you’ll go for some smoked cod’s roe and crudités. Main dishes may include a braised squid served with chickpeas and aioli, and a raw scallop dish served with navel orange, capers and sorrel. Keep an eye out for their latest seasonal menu, which is subject to change. 

When it comes to desserts you may find the almond cake on the menu served with poached pears and custard, or perhaps you’ll go for the delicious-sounding chocolate mousse served with creme fraiche and prunes. The drinks menu has a large choice of fine wines, including sparkling wine, by the bottle or glass. During the warmer months, you can also enjoy a drink outside where there is outdoor seating, a place you can soak up the beautiful sea views and surroundings. Perhaps you’ll go for a hot buttered rum, or a classic gin and tonic, there are plenty of unique and tempting sounding cocktails and drinks on the specials board each day. 

Sargasso enjoys a prime position in Margate Old Town enjoying views out to Margate Main Sands, if you’re visiting the area you are also within easy reach of many local attractions such as the Turner Contemporary Art Gallery, and the Margate Museum. You are also close to the popular Theatre Royal and the Margate Caves.
