A superbly cool and sophisticated venue

On entering you walk into a world of Paris, Milan or the Waldorf in London. Class and sophistication is there but it is underpinned by an attentive and welcoming approach from all staff.

Superb service and cuisine in the classiest restaurant and bar I have visited in Kent. The creative genius and artistic splendour of the owner is clear and the wine is an equal to anything outside the Michelin star restaurants.

We visited Deco 5 last week and have to say the food was really good quality plus a great selection of wines and beers. There was a really nice atmosphere and the service and staff were really polite and helpfu. We all had a great evening and will definitely go back when in Whitstable again.

Don't be put off by the front of the Deco 5 - or you might even be drawn in by it! - it's a lot more than just a Wine Bar. It's warm, welcoming and comfortable... with a lovely section upstairs where the music drifts gently in. Deco 5 is run by an Italian manageress, and as you might expect... More

Relaxed in the early part of the evening, rocking with live music on weekend nights and some week nights with live music. Has an upstairs if you want a quiet drink, plenty of alcoves ideal for romance or a group of friends chatting.

Just popped in for a bite to eat before christmas when everywhere else was full and was surprised to eat well and be totally entertained. Whitstable is a lovely town and a local band called Zedhead played. funny black girl as lead but great music too. Back again tonight for more of the same. Would be happy to recommend.
