Food good and specials as well. Booked a table for 2 but was a bit cramped and on top of other people. Service was attentive and wait was not too long. Next time would try and book a specific table.

We ate here a couple of days ago and overall we thought it was very good. The restaurant was full including a 21st party upstairs,therefore the staff were stretched to the limit. Whilst we were there they appeared to cope well but later on it would no doubt be hectic. Food quality was very good and overall we had a... More

Been before and was very impressed. Do reserve. Its got a sea view (ish) for lunch. There is a good first floor function room you can book with good views. A wide range of choice of meals all cooked to perfection. Interesting ideas well executed. Good flavouring. Decent portions. A very pleasant atmosphere with many regulars it seems. When near... More

We waited an hour for our fish and chips which was very average when it finally arrived. The staff were very poor and we were not shown to our table even though we had booked. The 2 waitresses were too busy chatting and drinking to ask us if we wanted another drink or to explain the wait for our food.... More

We have eaten at 81 several times , in the evening for dinner , and have always enjoyed the experience . Today was even better . Have done many Sunday lunches in Deal ( and else where ) and although is a little more expensive it's worth every penny more . Food excellent , service good . Recommended .

This restaurant is located in a lovely location overlooking the beach road, and the ambience is delightful. The menu is suitable for all tastes and every day there are local specials to tempt your palate. It is advisable to book, this can be done on line, and you can even choose your table in advance. The female staff are pleasant... More

Booked a table via Open Table - easy system to use. Food was delicious but the service was slow, which didn't bother us because we were not in a hurry. My husband's coffee was also spilt on delivery and no napkin offered or clean saucer. That said will return but would ask to be seated in the front of the... More

Been meaning to go here for a while following good reviews, but was really disappointed. Menu limited which is OK if the quality of the food is good, but it wasn't. Bread was too hot, burger OK, but the chips, presented in one of those mini chip baskets, were soggy which is inexcusable.
