Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I wanted our children to experience proper British chips and Sea View Fish Restaurant were able to provide these for us. The service was friendly and the chips were delicious. The restaurant offers an eat in restaurant and a takeaway and specialises in Seafood from...the local area. Food was reasonably priced and I recommend Sea View Restaurant.More

We have been to the Sea View Restaurant many times during our Kingsdown Camping trips and their Fish and Chip meals have always been superb. As we had spent a few days in Dover post Christmas we thought we would pop over to Deal for...a walk and have a late eat-in lunch at the Sea View. Sadly this time we left rather disappointed as we were served Fried Frozen Chips! What’s going on? May have been a temporary measure by Sea View to get over some short term problem (who knows) but would have liked to have been informed first. Fresh Fish and Chips is what we were looking for and expecting- not use of Frozen chips thank you! Staff were still friendly and efficient as usual though.More

Hi, We visited Deal pier today, Dec 8th 2023 and afterwards popped in the Sea View restaurant for some lunch. We hadn't booked, walked in off the street and were greeted by friendly chatty staff and were made to feel welcome. I had the large...haddock and chips, mushy peas and a pickled egg. My wife had the Large Cod and chips. Our meals were cooked to perfection. The batter was light and crisp, the fish was superb on both meals and revealed fresh white flakes as you cut into the good sized fillets and the chips were crisp and tasty. Both meals were presented with accompanying salad. It was a fantastic fish and chip meal. The resteraunt was smart and very clean and the staff were great. Mugs of tea were good too. Definitely worth a visit.More

Got takeaway fish and chips. Very poor quality fish, looked like it came from a box out the freezer and considering this is a seaside town you expect to get freshly caught freshly battered fish. What I got was certainly NOT freshly caught or freshly...battered more like Iceland supermarket. Chips were not good either. Extremely disappointed. Do not recommend a takeaway here at all.More

On our two day trip to Deal, we are here twice. Best fish and chips we have had in a long time. Fresh fish, batter to die for. The service was brilliant and the staff are very friendly. Will definitely return!

The best fish and chips we’ve had in a long while!! It was quickly cooked to order making it super fresh. We decided to have them open so was able to eat in the sunshine, across the road and on the beach - perfect!

Had a fish and chip lunch and it’s the best I’ve had in a very long time. Everything about it was good quality, hot and very well cooked. It’s nice crispy batter and not greasy. The restaurant is very nicely decorated and spacious. The staff...are very friendly and professional. Would definitely recommend and go back again.More

This sea front place offers both eat in and take away, the latter being slightly cheaper. A medium Cod & Chips in the restaurant was £12.95. The fish was fine; the chips a little disappointing (rather pale and slightly underdone); and the salad garnish excellent...(top quality ingredients very freshly prepared).More

Have been to this restaurant before as we are residents of Deal and we have always had a good meal, however on this occasion we were unable to book a table. As we had someone with us who suffers from a severe disability we needed...to book to be sure we could eat at a reasonable time. For some bizarre reason, we were told they did not take bookings anymore and we should just turn up. Why has the reservation option been taken away? Is it just for the summer months when you are really busy? If that's the case, it is a shame. We will no longer be eating here for this reason and will advise all our friends to go elsewhere should they wish to book in future.More

Overcooked, tasteless fish - batter snapped off as so crispy. Chips undercooked. Some of the worst fish and chips I've had. Told the waitress who apologised but didn't try to rectify it then brought the bill with no discount. Only conclusion is that they're not...bothered about your experience as did nothong about it. I won't go back.More
