As always, great food and service. Slightly disappointed with my cauliflower steak, which wasn't a steak but just three florets of cauliflower. However the triple cooked chips were to die for. And as for the peanut butter cheesecake - absolutely delicious. The lady that served us most of the night was very friendly. Shame we didn't get her name to be able to call her out.
Good covid19 security and excellent food and drink. Overall very enjoyable dinner.
Food and service was good. A little on the expensive side. Tables spaced out well and staff wore masks.
As usual, the 2/3 course menu is very good value and always comes up with a very nice starter, I had the mushrooms in cheese sauce and delicious. The steak at a supplement is always beautifully cooked and the chips to die for. Puddings are lovely too and witgh wine reasonably priced we enjoyed another very good lunch at 81
Lovely little restaurant. Outstanding food and drink. Would definitely recommend.
Had a wonderful lunch with my mum. Food was beautiful, service and staff lovely as ever and felt very safe and relaxed in these difficult times. Would 100% recommend 81 all the time x
Delicious seabass. Lovely to see Chapel Down Bacchus on the wine list. Sadly Covid regs make the place look very spartan at present. Black and white artwork not helping. However, very glad to see the restaurant busy and surviving.
Good despite being located
Next hot radiator . Ok
Best lunch!!! Love coming here. And such a beautiful view!
this was not my 1st visit and will now be my last the team at 81 are doing a great job in these hard times everything is being run exactly how it should be with the covid very safe and still serving great food
Excellent as ever in all aspects and carefully managed in these difficult times. A pleasure.
The lunch menu is a lovely mix for any taste. Great value and tasted gorgeous My friend & I both had the ribs followed by the risotto
Still as good as ever. Well worth the drive from Maidstone. Really innovative and tasty side dishes. Couldn't eat it all. Superb value for the money.
Thank you so much for your review. We are delighted you enjoyed your visit with us. Looking forward to the next one!
After an initial problem, which was resolved immediately, I had a lovely birthday meal. The young lady who served us was excellent and responded immediately to any requests. Meal was delicious. Thankyou. I am visiting again this week with friends.
The service was excellent and everyone enjoyed their food. We had asked for a window table because our party consisted of visitors to Deal and we were given one. Our guests had a lovely view of the sea and pier. Thank you for a very pleasant experience.
It's our pleasure. Thank you for your review! Hope to see you again soon.
we enjoy visiting 81 Beach Street, staff are friendly and food is not over priced with a good selection of options.
Thank you! Hope to see you again soon.
A fantastic meal. We have been wanting to come for ages and it was well worth the wait!
Fantastic place! Great food, great staff, great location, great toilets, loved it!
Great location with direct views of the sea and the pier. Food variable - limited choices for vegetarians but the fish was good. Decor was odd and using a professional stylist would improve the ambience.
Thank you for your review and recommendation.
Amazing food as always! Will be coming back soon!
The seems to be a lack of of continuity with staff eat here regularly and the always no personal touch
Thank you for reviewing us. We are really disappointed to read about the lack of personal touch, the majority of our front of house team have worked with us for over two years now, we did however have some seasonal team members in the summer. Thank you for making us aware of this though, as we can definitely work on this with more training.
We've enjoyed a second lovely meal with friends over a few weeks. Absolutely everything was of a high standard particularly taking current circumstances into account. Definitely recommend.
Thank you so much. What a great review. Hope to see you soon for a third meal!!
Best meal in a long time. The fillet steak was absolutely devine.
Proper restaurant. Excellent food, good value for the quality, convenient opening times
Thank you for your review and recommendation! Hope to see you again soon.
Love this restaurant, such a treat on a rainy day. Such a treat any day!
We really enjoyed our meal at 81 Beach Street. It was all lovely, and I would have given 5 stars but for one silly problem. The starter on the menu said mackerel pate, and two of us ordered it. When it came it was just mackerel. It was delicious and no-one really minded, but it DID say pate on the menu! Apart from that the food and service was all wonderful. My husband said there could have been more pork crackling with the roast pork.
Thank you for your review and also making us aware about the mackerel - we will raise this with the kitchen team. Will also talk about the crackling with them too! Delighted you enjoyed everything else though. Hope to see you again.
Lovely food, beautiful view, great staff.
We had been recommended this restaurant by 4 people when asking where to eat in Deal.
The venue was most unusual and we ate upstairs & this felt a little like entering someone’s dining room
However service was good and the food was very tasteful and we all enjoyed it. The wine was very nice but a slightly bigger choice would be nice
We shall return.
Thank you for your review and feedback. We are looking forward to welcoming you back.
Friendly staff, great food. Consistently excellent.
Thank you so much!
Sadly a little disappointing. Looked really nice in the photos but the atmosphere was a bit cold and bleak. We felt the food was over priced. All in all a bit unforgettable lunch.
Thank you for reviewing us, really sorry to read how disappointed you were though. We will certainly take your feedback on board. Thank you. Hope you might give us another chance at some point. Once again we are very sorry.
We have eaten in 81 Beach Street a number of times and most recently the lunch time food choice was limited and disappointing. I understand with Covid-19, limited menus are country wide, but risotto was average. last time we visited on a Sunday and chose Sunday roast which was excellent. Maybe the evening menu would be more accepatable
Thank you for your review. Sorry you found the lunch menu limited - our set lunch menu changes daily and we therefore have three choices for each course. I hope you were offered our A la Carte menu as well, as this is available alongside our set menu. Thank you for your review on our Sunday Roast. We do love our Roasts at 81! We really hope you will give us another try during the week though.
Went for the set lunch menu, superb as always. I have never had a bad meal here.
Thank you so much. Hope to see you again soon.
Lovely food, great ambience and value for money. What else could you ask for? All in all a great evening and would definitely eat there again.
Thank you so much for your review. Delighted you would come back. Hope to see you soon.
Absolutely superb all round. If you're in the area this place is a MUST VISIT. Would definitely recommend!!!!
Thank you so much for your recommendation!
Great food & great service in a great town, but I do live here!
Thank you! It certainly is a great town! We are very lucky to live here!
Fantastic service. Excellent food. Great evening. Can't wait to return.
Thank you for your review and we are absolutely delighted you enjoyed your evening. We are looking forward to welcoming you back.
81 Beach Street has a simple and elegant decor but the food is the true highlight! It’s fine dining with incredibly fresh ingredients with the additional bonus of having sea views. Will definitely go back!
Thank you so much. We look forward to welcoming you back!
Unfussy restaurant with good food, well priced house carafe of wine and excellent service
The food was very nice and fresh. The food was cooked well too. However, the music didn’t fit the ambiance of the venue.
I would recommend
Thank you for your recommendation. Sorry about the music, thank you for making us aware - we will look into the playlist we had on that evening. Hope to see you again.
Lovely food. Chilled sparkling rose and catch if the day lemon sole. Fish cooked perfectly and everything piping hot. Panda cotta dessert was beautiful. All in all a very impressive experience and we had an enjoyable, relaxing time! Thank you.
What a great review, thank you!
