We had a delicious Sunday roast. The restaurant offers a good choice of 2 courses on a Sunday. Our meal this Sunday was very enjoyable. Meat cooked to your liking and plenty of roast potatoes and fresh vegetables. Dessert was also very enjoyable. The staff at 81 are always attentive and helpful. Always recommend this restaurant to people to try.... More

Really enjoyed the food here.., it faces the beach and is quiet, but with a good range of fish - the skate was terrific and service was excellent in high season I would reserve a table if you want to see the sea from your table

We have visited 81 Beach Street a number of times in recent years and it never fails to deliver good quality food at a sensible price. A really good lunch or dinner option if you are visiting Deal, or like ourselves residents. Service is always good. To hit 5 stars the restaurant might try to showcase local produce including fresh... More

81 is a local restaurant serving a varied menu of good quality food in pleasant, bistro style surroundings. The menu changes periodically and there is also a fixed price lunchtime menu which suits most tastes. Ben, Sophie and the team always give a warm welcome. Overlooking the sea, the seascape is always varied - winter or summer, rain or shine.... More

Very good quality food and fairly priced. Attentive service and friendly staff. I was impressed that despite being full at the time that I telephoned, I received a call the next day to be told that a table was available for the time that I originally wanted.

We visited this restaurant on our 1st evening there, expecting formal but casual, sat at the front of restaurant. Very busy & noisey, service hurried. Chose drinks & food, slow on arriving but food was good. Okay but not impressed

I cannot count how many Sunday lunches I have had at lovely 81 Beach Street but today's must have been the best ever. Lovely Sophie, Ian and the crew both in and out of the kitchen, you made two old wrinklies very very happy. God bless you and all who sail in you.

Our second visit. Was it really Parma ham we had? Fresh fish? Very strange "real” chips. Nobody ever asked us if our food was ok, just a "are we done?" Disappointing and amazing as others (locals) were asked... English wine and water were the best we had on the table.
