    The food was nice and the staff very polite and provided excellent service. They only thing they need to improve in is how to make Chai lattes as the ones they made were undrinkable

    We had a piece of the of decking and timber fall form the roof, on to our table collecting three of our diners and the Manager could not even bother to move form behind the bar to check on us and gave us quite the cold shoulder. I think her name was Leah. No concern that that my guests were ok and or check the safety of the outside deck area. A huge OHS risk and should not be seating guests out the front until they have secured all the timber. Otherwise some one will seriously get hurt next time. Very disappointing service, given that food was actually pretty good. We were offered 50% off to go quietly which the team then managed to equate to only 25% off to compensate for the injured parties. As a local i will not be going back anytime soon.

    Service has got worse than ever. You have to go and stop them talking to each other to get served. The food has also changed. I used to put up with the bad service as the food was great. Won't be going back.

    The chef refused to make food we requested and then our order was never placed so we waited an hour to get our meal. The eggs were too runny and not tasty. It was a terrible experience and don’t think I will return or recommend to anyone

    The service was great & the food was fabulous! I highly recommend the Deck Brighton for a luncheon! It has ceiling to floor windows at the front, so is filled with natural light inside, being a sunny, winters day created a warm & inviting environment.

    Always enjoy The Deck. Good selection of food and good layout with plenty of space between tables. On this occasion the service was poor. Our first waitperson kept forgetting some of our basic requests and we needed to keep following up. Eventually another person attended our table and they were much more efficient and friendly.

    Bay Street in Brighton isn't the most elegant street in town. Neither is Martin Street. Church Street is. However, Bay Street has some of the best eateries in the area and THE DECK is one of them. Simple, super tasty and well-presented cafe fare, reasonably priced, and with the choice of eating outside on ....(wait for it!) the eponymously titled DECK....or just inside or around and back in a courtyard although we've never ventured back there so haven't seen it as yet. The Brekkie Brunch burger is our fave, the coffee is EXCELLENT, service from Charlie (a female charlie not a male charlie just for clarification) is always swift, friendly and professional, and it's managed well and totally organized and does not disappoint. It's in the middle of the long strip between the railway crossing near the cinemas and New Street which is a bit commercial in the way of dentists, doctors, realtors, etc so not cluttered with cafes in that area but it is an absolute STANDOUT place.

    We booked a table for 10 people outside but uno arrival they told us that there was no table for us. The manager used some excuses that were obviously not true (e.g. he said a couple of people hadn’t left from a previous booking when they had just arrived). It was obvious that there was no table booked for us.

    Booked indoor table but seated outdoors, which was difficult for disabled person because of steps. No children's menu offered even though there were 2 small children in the party. We had to ask for someone to serve us - table seemed to be totally forgotten. Toast was burnt.

    Our order of decidedly tasteless calamari on a nice salad just didn’t turn up. No server even looked at us or our table even when they were passing by us delivering food to tables all around us - WHO ALL CAME IN AFTER US! Just ridiculous. Surely if you were scanning the room you’d notice we didn’t have our meals. We asked what had happened. ‘Oh sometimes the paper runs out’. WHAT! SO no order was received in the kitchen. Who know? We then got a peace offering of our ordered fries. It STILL took at least 15 minutes for our meals to come. I asked was there a manager on. No doesn’t work Tuesdays. No effort to say a proper sorry. It was too hard for any of them. No offer to take fries off the bill. We won’t be going back. That’s for sure.

    Ordered chilli eggs and bacon, no bread. Got runny “scrambled” eggs that were terrible and revisited me for the rest of the day. Forgot the bacon which arrived later. My friend got her salad after that. Barely anyone in the cafe and yet 6 staff standing around chatting. We had to call them to us. Very disappointed after what used to be a great place to eat. Don’t offer what you can’t cook! Won’t go back.

    Very well organised, although we booked on short notice, everything was ready with a choice of 2 tables. The atmosphere is relaxed, the staff are pleasant and attentive, without being overbearing. We were having brunch on the outdoor deck, the food & drinks were served in good timing, all ingredients tasted fresh, to be repeated !
