We ordered the manchego croquettes as a starter which came with a homemade tomato coulis which was delicious. The cod as a main with lentils was excellent and the other main we had was gnocchi with sage and mushrooms which I could recommend heartily. The only minor issue for us was the Christmas music which dominated rather and felt a bit out of place for a restaurant where they take their food seriously.

The booking should had been for 5 people, I realised that I had made an error and managed to call the restaurant who very kindly (at very short notice) moved things around to accommodate which was excellent as was a birthday celebration and also the first time we going to the restaurant. The food was excellent and although a small menu the choice suited all of us, the food was cooked and presented beautifully, the wine choices were also very good and reasonably priced.

Definitely going back again! Great food, great service and great ambience.

TBH I cannot rate this restaurant highly enough. My wife & I used to come here in the distant pre-pandemic days, and before she died last April. It was one of her favorite places to dine in England (she was American). I'm so glad this place survived and thrived. It's by far the best place in Deal for a cosy and spectacular dinner. Outstanding menu and wine list, an absolute treat. I brought my 18yo son last night and he was very impressed (hard for their generation sometimes). Thank you for such wonderful food and friendly service.

We had such a lovely evening at Victuals and Co and the team made us feel very welcome. We appreciated all the little special touches to make my husband’s birthday special.

The food was absolutely amazing and we loved it so much - the soufflé was especially wonderful. We will definitely be back.

Thanks for such a lovely experience.

Another lovely dining experience at Victuals. Always such a warm welcome with great service. The smoked pigeon was tasty with the beetroot and the beef dish was sumptuous and full of flavour. The banana soufflé was even nicer than usual!! It’s nice to find a restaurant which is consistently good. Thank you. We shall be back!!

Nice food but expensive- small fillet of fish tasted fine but quite a small plate of food. Venison starter very nice but expensive again. Would have preferred to have been seated downstairs, which appeared quiet anyway, as the atmosphere better downstairs. Waiter was very attentive.

The very high standard of food, wine and service that we have come to expect from Victuals. We brought friends with us who haven't been to the restaurant for circa 10 years. They only came because we had commended you so highly. They were incredibly impressed and are committed to returning soon! Keep up the great work guys.
