Visited Ds steak bar as a party of 21 people, well you would expect some problems with a party of that size but not here. Everyone's steak was served simultaneously and each cooked to the Individuals liking and to perfection. The chips were the best tasted for a long time and the desert was delicious. Topped with first class service and reasonably priced drinks, what more could you ask? I shall definitely been returning. I can honestly say it was the best meal I have ever eaten in East Kent!

10 for dinner is a test for any restaurant, and D's did a great job. Steaks all good and the massive tomato and mushrooms good compliment, as was the simple but ideal side salad. Ant the Chips were fantastic. Wine very reasonable price and top notch. The service was very efficient and friendly, and the owner a really nice guy with a huge personality. So, all in all a great find, so don't let the steps to an underground cellar setting put you off.

Visited Saturday 29th July with friends (party of 6). First impression when going down stairs was where are we going? Once at bottom find yourself in a cellar! Ordered drinks from bar and spent some time generally drinking and chatting in the nice atmosphere. Very pleasant waitress took us to our table and we ordered our meal. Our starters were 2x rib's and 1 prawn and salmon. The ribs were disappointing the prawn's (2!) and salmon just Ok. Next we had 4x sirloin and 2x rib-eye all fantastic, tasty and cooked exactly to our own preferences. The rest of the meal that went with the steak not up to much - salad in a bowl just a few leaves and nothing else, few chips homemade but still not that nice 1 grilled tomato and 1 grilled mushroom but the peppercorn sauce was gorgeous. Dessert so-so 1x chocolate brownie 2x banoffie pie small portions nothing special. Wine VERY expensive. On balance it is a nice place lovely atmosphere excellent friendly staff but I don't think it is very good value for money

But sadly this is not what I got here. Ordered a fillet steak, which in most restaurants is over an inch think. Here it looked like a sad sirloin steak. The rare cooked was a rather well cooked medium. For £20 this was not good value and considering the farms and quality of the meat in the area I was really surprised that this was not reflected in this meal. I was with friends who had been before and said that this was unusual for it to be bad. The side salad that comes with the steak is quite sad looking, just a few leaves, no tomatoes, cucumbers, anything to make it a bit more interesting. The sauteed potatoes were nice though. Didn't want to risk pudding.

The service was alright, not the best but definitely not the worse. We were in the back room near the toilets and mainly the only table there so probably why we were not getting checked on too much.

If the steak was cheaper I'd go back and give it another go but not at this price. It may have been an off night but as I was visiting I'll not find out.

A very friendly lady took our reservation and we immediately felt we would have a nice experience here.We had sirloin and rib eye, both succulent and cooked just as we like them. The chocolate dessert was home made and very moreish. The waiting staff were friendly and attentive.
This is a nice place to visit be it for a meal or just a drink and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
