Another return visit

This was another return visit for us as this restaurant always comes up with the goods. We decided to take my Mother and she wasn't disappointed. The steaks as always were beautifully cooked to our liking and once again we could not miss out on the home made pannacotta with rose ice cream. We look... read more

Been here many times and it never disappoints. This time had upstairs room for 14 and we all enjoyed our meal. The service was a little slow but they were incredibly busy in the main restaurant and the staff were lovely.

I've been here about 10 times now and it's been a good reliable brasserie style restaurant. I decided to treat my dad for a birthday lunch Saturday so I opted for 81 and I'm glad we did. The restaurant wasn't overly busy and the food orders were taken by a young man who was pleasant and helpful. We ordered salmon... More

Great restaurant, innovative menu. 99% of the time it is spot on. Occasionally, it is not that 100% , but they can be forgiven! They accept Tastecard which makes fine dining a reasonable price.

Average food on offer, senior member of staff very attentive but younger members of staff only seemed to be happy when stood around chatting in a huddle in the middle of the restraunt, men's toilet needs relocating at very least a lick of paint not very impressed will look elsewhere in future !!

My family and I go here quite a lot and I'm surprised it's not in the top 3 restaurants in Deal. The food is great, the staff are fantastic and the atmosphere is lovely.
