Victuals & co
Yet again, the food was excellent, the welcome warm and friendly.
Great service, wonderful ambiance, amazing dessert - Starter and main course could have done with slightly more seasoning, however great value.
Fantastic food and service, good wine selection. The panna cotta was my favourite! A great find.
5 Star for everything. Very highly recommended. It was the highlight of the day. Great 1st time in Deal.
We had a lovely meal. Great service, the food was presented beautifully, and the desserts were all exquisite. One of our group had the Cauliflower main and was in love with it, the only minor gripe was with the cod (which itself was delicious), we were left a bit disappointed by the combination with the chicken ravioli which didn’t quite match the rest of the food. We will certainly be back.
Went there for our wedding anniversary and I asked during the booking to have a flower put on my wife’s place. I was very pleased to find a lovely bunch of roses compliments of the management. Very impressed and grateful!
The place is pleasantly decorated and comfortable. The service was attentive and efficient.
The food very well presented and executed and of top quality ingredients.
If I had to be critical I would only say I would have expected more interesting and possibly unusual flavours combinations, given that the menu is quite limited (which is not a bad thing) and certainly sounded more exotic than it in fact was.
But certainly a very accomplished operation, well conducted and I would not hesitate to recommend it and return.
Fab restaurant, fab food, fab style!
Fab hosts. Thankyou
Stylish interior and very friendly service. Food delicious - scallop starter and lamb main course. The lamb looked small but was actually plentiful - rich and luscious flavours and great selection of vegetables and purees which enhanced the main course - you would almost call it a deconstructed vegetables selection. The pork ban bau rolls and chicken were again flavourful and excellent. Would highly recommend and will return even though live 90 minutes away.
Hi another enjoyable meal only let down by my friend's fillet steak being tough - this was replaced and not charged for. However, it is disappointing that the quality of the supplier's meat has fallen because this is the most expensive item on the menu and needs to be the quality it has been on a previous visit.
Good food, pleasant environment and efficient service.
10/10 would highly recommend anyone to dine here . Best in kent
This was the second visit in three months and we will definitely be coming back. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was fantastic as usual. I'm looking forward to the return of the tasting menu at some point in the future.
Superb place for dinner, outstanding service, fantastic food.
We had a lovely meal with relatives over from
Australia- by far the best meal out in every sense.
Delicious Sunday Roast Lunch raised to fine dining level.
Ambition here outpaces performance. And cooking falls short in both respects. And what’s really the Victuals Schtick? Is it about a feast of starters, about sharing with the rest of the table or simply very small helpings? Frankly Cheese and dessert were the best courses. But attentive and helpful service and the kind of atmosphere you hope for over a weekend escape in Deal between Christmas and New Year
Booked restaurant for quiet birthday treat. Easy to book on line. Staff were very helpful and attentive and explained how the menu worked. The restaurant doesn't want to be known as a tapas bar but that is effectively how it works but at a nouveau cuisine level. Quiet. Would recommend but with a good bottle of wine can be rather expensive.
What an amazing place. As soon as you enter, the customer service and friendly atmosphere is clear and of high quality. The food speaks for it's self and is worth every penny!
It was different to our normal eats, but a refreshing change. I did find the menu a bit confusing but with a little help mastered it.
The wine I had was superb overall a bit on the pricey side.
We were wondering what to do on a Friday night and decided to go on a whim. The menu had changed from the previous visit and consisted of a tasting menu which we shared between the two of us. Each of the 9 plates was served by knowledgable friendly staff and were nothing short of fantastic. This place punches well above its weight and should not be missed.
We had a very nice dinner in this restaurant, a lot of gluten free opportunities. Nice music, friendly staff. Recommended!
Did "Raid the Larder" on Sunday night for the fixed price menu, where you have a choice of whatever is left in the kitchen at the end of the weekend. We arrived early to get maximum choice , around 6.30. Food was delicious and beautifully presented. Service was friendly but still very efficient and attentive. Excellent wine selection (we had the False Bay Pinotage). Super meal and great value.
Really fab food and excellent service. Definitely the best place we ate in Deal. Highly recommended
The food was cooked to order, was tasty and was beautifully presented. We had four dishes each (each was the size of a starter) which came one after the other, as four courses, so we could enjoy them and savour them. I also enjoyed a very good blackcurrant frangipan with honey and yoghurt icecream which again was beautifully presented. The waitress was friendly and delightful and had a lovely manner and we were well looked after. We had a special evening and would love to return.
I never miss the opportunity to dine at the wonderful Victuals & co. From the moment you walk in you know you are going to have a fantastic evening.
The staff as superb, the decor / lighting is spot on and the food from Chef's kitchen is incredible.
You always want to come back again.
Possibly the best steak i’ve had, ever. 50’s bloke who likes steak and has been to Argentina! Great service - off carbs at the moment so alternative was offered to complimentary bread.
Was in Deal for a few days. Restaurant was only a few doors away from where we were staying. We were lucky as it is not open every day.
Great welcome for the Sunday lunch. Waitress was friendly and attentive.
We both had a roast which was cooked to perfection with imaginative trimmings.
We both had afters. The Souflet was great with the butterscotch source.
When next in the area, this will be the number one choice.
This place is amazing, the food absolutely fantastic, would definately reckmmend
We always have a great meal here. Service is always great and really personable and the food is AMAZING. We had the lunch small plates menu which was DELICIOUS. Our dog always joins us as there a few tables at the front of the restaurant which are dog friendly. We got to meet the chefs and had a great chat with them too. If you haven’t already been go! We will be back again soon.
Excellent food, an interesting wine list and innovative flavours. Highly recommended.
Food was excellent, although we did feel the service was lacking - only due to the staff member we had was young and untrained. I can't remember the last time I had to open and poor my own bottle of £33 wine! Also the eating style was not explained so our food was all over the place. The staff were great, but basic training should be a must.
Delicious food, and fantastic value. Couldn't believe it wasn't totally full, when the food is so good (but it was a very rainy day I suppose)
Excellent service. friendly welcome, easy relaxed atmosphere. Been there before at a weekend which I found noisy and the fellow diners overbearingly "Down From London." Thursday night fine!
We eat here on a Thursday evening. We est early to it was lovely and quiet. The waitress was very helpful and the food was fabulous it was certainly a a dining experience. We enjoyed every dish that came out. The Monkfish was amazing. We will definitely recommend this restaurant and we will certainly be returning when we are next in Deal
Really enjoyed the Raid the Larder menu. The food was amazing and nothing was too much trouble for our waitress.
Tip - if going for the raid the larder menu go a bit earlier as popular dishes will sell out.
Warm welcome from friendly, professional staff, delicious and creative food combinations, imaginatively conceived and exquisitely executed. We chose the 4 and 5 dish tasting options and shared between the 2 of us. Victuals not our first dinner there and most definitely not our last. Thank you Victuals & Co.
Their Raid the Larder menu on a Sunday left us both hungry even with 3 courses. The problem being they don't serve bread/rolls on a Sunday and all the meals are very light and fairly small portions - there was not a vegetarian option as a main (pork, cod or steak) so best check before you go what the menu will be but having said that they are using up their larder so sometime meals may not be available once you are there.
The new menu providing a range of small/medium dishes is superb. There were 9 choices (excluding desert) on the menu the night we went. I can't do justice to the variety of superb dishes including cod, monkfish, vegetables, lamb, pork etching as each was cooked and presented its own lovely mix of flavours. We had 7 dishes between us and all were excellent. We also shared a dessert.
I believe that the menu changes all the time so next time we go we look forward to a whole new range of dishes.
A lovely restaurant. Food is good. The menu has changed since I last visited in the summer. I would prefer to have the option of making each plate small or large rather than being constrained to small plates, minimum of 3. That said each plate was delicious and a lot of care went into my need to be Gluten Free, thank you.
First visit and won't be the last. Excellent all round. Definitely recommend in future.
