Very nice Sunday lunch but !

We enjoyed another very nice Sunday lunch at 81 yesterday and the food was very good. I think they are becoming a little complacent though. I was rather disappointed by the three small ramekins of veg containing, mashed carrot and swede, leeks in cheese sauce and peas and two slices of sweet... read more

We went for lunch and both opted for the catch of the day - herb crusted cod or whole lemon sole - served with chips, mushy peas and tartare sauce. They were very happy to exchange the chips with the cod for a portion of mixed vegetables instead. Both fish dishes were cooked perfectly. We chose the sorbets and the... More

Visited for my birthday. Took a few minutes to be noticed at the doorway but we were sat and the service was great ever since. Our waitress was the general manager, lovely, chatty lady. Food was presented really well and was delicious! I had the soup and Mediterranean vegetable puff pastry tart. It was full of flavour and was so... More

Great food, helpful service and good to find GF options. Lemon sole just excellent. Everyone in our party commented on the high quality of the food - would definitely go back.

This was a good meal but not great. The vegetarian option (moussaka) was really bland and way too hot. The chicken was average. However, this place seems to get good reviews, so maybe it was just our meals. One thing we really didn't like was that when people were paying, the owner (I assume) would explain in detail how to...

Had dinner here last night with my daughter. We had a fillet steak & a rib eye steak. Both cooked to perfection. Medium rare, very juicy. I had extra veg instead of chips. Washed down with a bottle of rose.

This is my go-to place when I want a high quality, good value dinner or lunch on a special occasion, I have been eating here for around 7 or 8 years and never had a poor experience of meal. The atmosphere is relaxed, the service good and the food outstanding. The menu isn't hugely extensive, but the ingredients are of... More

Great little restaurant on the seafront with a varied and interesting menu and helpful staff. We were probably a bit too near the service area to be completely wowed but most things were good.

Had a very nice evening here, with each of the 3 courses being equally delicious and well presented. Good atmosphere in the restaurant and staff were really friendly and helpful. Nice that we were given the choice of where to sit. Will definately return again and again as other items on the menu we really want to try. Thank you... More

My wife & I popped in for Sunday lunch and boy, were we in for a treat. The food was well cooked and presented, all the staff were in good humour, extremely friendly, and efficient. We were in Kent for a short break, and this was by far one of the best meals throughout our stay. The restaurant was extremely... More
