Reviewed By DSandPM - Leigh-on-Sea

I have lived in the area for many years but it is a long while since last eating here. Just why have I left it so long? By the end of a memorable dining experience I realised that I have been missing an imaginative menu, wonderfully-cooked food, attentive and professional service and a very friendly atmosphere.
Three of us enjoyed every mouthful. Soup (leek and potato) and fresh asparagus were the chosen starters. Then one had calves liver, another had Dover sole and I had grilled wing of skate. These were accompanied by an assortment of vegetables which, by themselves, were worth a five-star rating. As I write this review I can see the dish in front of me and my taste buds start quivering!
The Sunday opening started at 3.00 pm so was this a late lunch or an early dinner? It doesn't matter because Alvaro's is so much more than a Portuguese restaurant tucked away in a back street of Westcliff. The visit accompanied by two appreciative friends, was one of those rare occasions when dining out is so, so good.

Flying Pasta

Reviewed By Julie200 - London, United Kingdom

We dined at Flying Pasta before heading off the casino and were suitably impressed. Good service from the staff, great choice of dishes on the menu plus a selection of specials to choose from. The sea bass, monkfish and steak were all delicious.

With our authentic Italian food, ambient atmosphere and high standards of service you can be assured of a great time every visit. Our pasta is freshly made daily to a traditional Italian family recipe. We provide a modern dining room for classic and familiar Italian dishes and international wines.

My daughter brought me here for an early mothers day dinner. We chose the 15.95 midweek deal. The food was excellent as was the service. Attentive without being obtrusive. The restaurant was filling up as the night went on most seeming to be regulars which is a good sign. Will definitely be back.

Rosy Lee Cafe

Reviewed By Haveaniceday926 - Westcliff-on-Sea, United Kingdom

Always polite and efficient service and if you make an effort you will also feel welcome and looked after. Food perfectly cooked and tasty. It is much better than the the name "cafe" suggests.
Good value for money.
Take your own alcoholic drinks
The best vegetarian breakfasts I know of although their full English is even better.
Great in the evenings too but it is a small place so suggest you book.

La Pizzeria

Reviewed By ProofIsInThePudding - Essex, United Kingdom

Been here several times but never got around to doing a review.
Ricardo was not in when we visited but we were looked after by the other guy who read out our regular order as he handed us the menu! Good memory.
Had Caprichosa pizza. So fresh and delicious. We avoid ordering garlic bread as well as it's all so filling.
It's a small restaurant but the welcome is big and the food is fantastic.
Parking -- is on street and free for a set amount of time. It can be busy but determination pays off. It will be worth it.
Recommended.

Sara's Tea Garden

Reviewed By gbBlondie70 - Mildenhall, United Kingdom

Saw this on trip advisor and decided to check it out for breakfast.
Quirky place with plenty of menu options.
Food was fresh and piping hot. Poached eggs were perfect.
Only negative was that one meal did not come out with the other three, for a good 5 minutes, (could hear that there was confusion about the order) would have liked a quick explanation rather than nothing.
Food did take a while, but it was cooked to order.
Highly recommend!!

Oldham's Fish Restaurant

Reviewed By gas65 - Whitstable, Kent

Ate here following a visit to nearby theatre. Food, service and prices all excellent. This is a traditional fish and chip restaurant above the fish & chip takeway shop and its about traditional as you can get. Food freshly cooked, large portions and varied choice. Good end to a good day.

Millys

Reviewed By Toff-101 - Essex, United Kingdom

You get good polite service here, quality food items but pricing on the higher end considering it's a deli and not full blown restaurant, probably why we don't visit a lot as there's so much choice around even 2 course quality lunch meals for the same price as a baguette/ciabatta (£7.95) at Millys, it is quality though and Leigh so that adds a few extra pound.
A nice quirky place once in a while, good music too.
