“the freshest fish ever”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

I was recently in the delightful town of Deal visiting with an old friend and we decided to try out this sea front restaurant; an unassuming little place with a view over the sea and the pier. The service was truly excellent and the cod I ate ~ larger than plate-size ~ could well have been swimming off the coast of Hythe that morning it tasted so fresh and in a mouth-wateringly light batter. My friend had plaice with which she was more than satisied
The fish sat on a mountain of great chips, enough to satisfy any appetite, with accompanying token salad and tartar sauce.

A veritable feast and great value for money. The restaurant sits alongside a take away so if you feel like eating your fare at the water's edge you can

“super duper”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

First time visit to the "best fish and chips in town" as the shop advertises. OK where do I start...it was good. the menu is simple and straight forward. We opted for cod and haddock...which was huge. chips were fat and fluffy as is the standard. so I was twice as happy as some eateries opt for frozen chips. all in all very good....one niggle I had was the beverages. I expect tea to served in a pot (enough for two cups) or in a mug....the Sea View however serves tea in a Fisherprice cup... come on....really??? The waitress looked quite perplex when I asked for more hot water.

“Good fish and chips on the seafront”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

We ate here one evening and had a pleasant takeaway meal to sit on the seafront and eat.

The batter was a little heavy and the fish a little dry. The chips were undercooked and anaemic looking.
Overall it was a nice enough fish and chip supper, but could definitely be improved.

“Excellent Fish Restaurant”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

We have been to this restaurant on many occasions and have always had an excellent meal, the fish is always fresh also very large, it is presented well, the wine is very reasonable and the staff are always very friendly and helpful, we had a family gathering there and everyone enjoyed it and the service for such a large number was first class.

“Best fish and chips in town!”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Every couple of months I bring the family down to Deal and it's always a must to have fish and chips when by the sea. This is the first time we'd been to Sea View and we'll defiantly be coming again. Very good value with large portion sizes, friendly staff and it was absolutely delicious. Great options for the kids on the menu to. 10/10
