About
81 Beach Street is our celebration of what makes good restaurants great - fine food without the fuss. A cross between a restaurant and a bistro we offer an eating experience that goes beyond the need for nourishment. We are based in beautiful Deal on the Kent Coast - and are therefore lucky enough to benefit from some great local food and wine producers. Enjoy Fine Dining by the Beach

Really delicious catch of the day (lemon sole cooked whole on the bone), and the sea bass in saffron was delicious and also cooked well. Casual dining experience, friendly and attentive staff, gets busy in the evenings so would recommend that you book in advance....More
