Instead of going to the Italian Riviera of the Italian quarter in New York go to Deco 5; a truly artistic venue in every way. As a former resident of Whitstable this was my favourite venue, either by myself, as a couple or in attending one of their great events. Well worth making the journey from London to see the... More

Gave this a go on a Saturday but we may have been early at 8 as we ended up being the only ones in there as the DJ was setting up. Nice interior albeit a little sparse and limited seating. It may liven up later - waiter may need a lesson on how much kir goes into a Royal. Disappointing... More

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. This is north Kent's classiest place to drink and eat and be entertained. The artistic genius of its owner is apparent and but what it does do... More

Free buffet atmosphere really good. music really good started with 50'smusic ,couples dressed up in clothes of the era and jiving . Later more modern music. Very mixed age group which is a nice change .Will go to decco again soon.

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
