An early 60th birthday dinner for two. This place never disappoints, fabulous service, great food and lovely wine choices. We both had the scallops and fillet steaks which were perfectly cooked. Big shout out to the whole team thank you 😊

Great food. Fantastic choice of wine. Service amazing. Helped us pair wine with food. "You'll love this. We don't do it by the glass but have a taster and if you like it then you can have a glass." They should start doing "flights". We'll be back. Thanks guys.

I visited here with family and have to say the food was very good. Our waiter was excellent good humoured knowledgeable and entertaining !. He knew the menu and could answer all our questions and there were a lot of them from our table! He (and the kitchen) was able accommodate gluten free requests and other dietary requests. The food was delicious and seasoned very well. I had scallops and others had venison, cod and they were excellent. The starters were good too as was the soufflée for pud and they do grappa ! We will return.

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely meal on Thursday 9th December. The gnocchi was delicious as was the venison and mixed berry souffle was sublime!

Robert, your front of house man was top class! Very attentive and knowledgeable about the food and wine. He is an excellent ambassador for the restaurant and very humorous too!

We were visiting Deal for a few days break away and will definitely return when we return.

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.
