Certainly one of the best meals I have had for a long time. The service was perfect and friendly and the ambiance very comfortable
The whole evening was very enjoyable. there are just the right amount of tables to ensure that we didn't have to wait to long to be served. The food was excellent . The waiting staff were helpful and friendly.
Great food at great prices. Never disappointed. Lots of choice and very friendly staff.
As usual the food was excellent and our table had a sea view. Waiting stall very busy and didn’t come back for our pudding choice and we had to remind them! Understandable as they were rushing about at peak lunchtime. Will be back soon.
The food is outstanding never had a bad meal yet and I’ve eaten here lots of times
The service has been known to be slow at times but the food makes up for it
Fantastic as always. Great customer service. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Great food in a friendly local restaurant. Good prices too.
We will be back.
Fabulous NYE ! booked a table for 4, set menu with a choice. Three courses all delicious and catered well for different eaters vegetarians etc well looked after staff all attentive and polite. Fresh water on the table, more brought to us during the meal (without asking) naughty drinks too, all reasonably priced. Lovely evening and the atmosphere in the upstairs room was so chilled.
New Years Eve
This is a very nice restaurant indeed. The food is really excellent and the staff are very pleasant and friendly. 81 Beach St. is about as nice a restaurant as you will find in a seaside resort. Highly recommended
This has been our 4th time to 81 Beach street, all I can Delicious food and excellent wine.
Staff are so attentive and polite.This time I tried the blackened Cod dish .Exquisite.The chef is doing a brilliant job.
If you try the restaurant you will not be disappointed.
We had a fantastic meal for 5 of us on Saturday evening. My son and his wife were over from Australia for Christmas, he said his steak was the best he’d eaten in England. My sea bream was delicious as the the other main meals. The staff are always very friendly and helpful. My husband and I have been to 81 Beach Street many times and it never disappoints.
Food is nice but service is atrocious.
Great food great value, lovely menu. Charming service
Friendly staff, accommodating to allergies. High quality food with relaxed atmosphere. Would definitely return when back in Deal. Highly recommend a visit.
Very good food and staff
Excellent service, great food and definitely cake for money 😁
Very disappointing. Chose the rump steak which we have had a few times before. Unfortunately steaks were not up to the usual standard - lots of sinew running through making it difficult to cut let alone eat. Had to leave some of it. When mentioned to the waiter he said he would inform the cook but no action was taken.
Service and food could not fault
Some friends were visiting from London so took them to 81 for lunch. They loved everything about it
The food here is excellent, obviously using the best produce to present immaculate food, presented with flair.
Lovely evening with my family. Made to feel welcome as always.
Lovely friendly restaurant, I met up with a friend for dinner and our welcome was warm, great choice on the menu, food was lovely, service was spot on. Can't ask much more than that, go try it for yourself you won't be disappointed.
Great chef,food hot & lovely. Got there early but not a problem .The girl welcomed us in and sat us at our table .Smashing start.
We went for a birthday dinner with friends & had a really lovely evening. Staff were attentive and lovely, food was amazing and the restaurant looked beautiful with all the Christmas lights! This is our favourite place to go for dinner or lunch.
Booked into 81 for a birthday meal, the food was excellent, the staff were very attentive and the service was very prompt. We didn’t feel rushed, it was a great all round experience, will definitely be going back to 81 Beach street.
Lovely place. Hot bread and oil was very tasty, The Sea bream was fantastic (amazing sauce!) The cheesecake was very nice. Staff were friendly. Only minor point the group mentioned was they felt £6.50 was a bit expensive for a pudding and maybe a couple of different options would have been nice. Other than that everyone was very happy.
Recommended by friends and was not disappointed. Was very busy when we arrived for a late lunch and attended to quickly had a seat in the window overlooking the sea. Service was attentive but not overly so and a good pace for course serving. Everyone enjoyed their meals a good vegan selection for one of our group. Would highly recommend.
Lovely meal, and excellent food and great value. Our table was between the kitchen and the coat rack so felt it wasn't as relaxing a lunch as it could have been with people rummaging for their coats and the dirty dishes heading constantly past our table. However will definitely be back! Might ask for a different table!
We had a fabulous Christmas meal at 81, the menu was delicious and the roast turkey dinner was amazing the best I’ve had .....would definitely recommend it !
Busy, yet not crowded, nicely laid out and decorated. Our second visit here and the service and food is excellent. A very good place highly recommended.
Lovely meal, very good service but looking back I think I was over charged by £10, should have rung back.
Whenever we are in Deal we try to eat at 81. The food, the staff are up there with the best in the area. Looking forward to our next trip on New Years Day....
As always, great food, responsive service and great value.
Thank you for your review! Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
We had a really lovely evening here. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. Will def go back! One very minor gripe was that there was no vegan dessert option.
Thank you for your review. I'm so sorry you didn't see our vegan desserts as we do have some on our vegan menu, really sorry if our staff didn't make you aware of this. Please do ask when you next visit. Once again thank you for reviewing us.
