Our team create both classic and eclectic dishes taking inspiration from global food cultures and the best culinary traditions. We make everything ourselves, including our own bread.
We try to keep our menus simple with a varied à la carte menu on Wednesday to Saturday evenings. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday lunch we offer a fixed price menu.
On Sunday evening we ‘Raid the Larder’, our unique concept, where we create a menu for our last service of the week which can be any dish from our current menus or something entirely new, making best use of our stock of ingredients to bring you great value.
Sometimes this means that we are making up dishes on the spot, so it’s best to be flexible as choices can run out early and vary during the evening but they are always top quality and delicious. Due to the nature of ‘Raid the Larder’ the later you come the less choice there will be.
Please always advise us of any specific dietary requirements or intolerances you may have before ordering any of our dishes.
We had a lovely meal at this very quaint restaurant tucked away in a small side street. The waiting staff were all very friendly and the service polite and professional. We all seemed to go for the same starters and main courses so I can only comment on what we had. The presentation and quality of the food was excellent and we all enjoyed our meal. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Deal.
We had visited last year and were so impressed. Tucked away down a side street. Original artwork on the walls. Discreet and friendly service. Had their Sunday night menu which is where they use up some food. Halibut was delicious on mash. Pudding included pistachio frangipane and honeycomb ice cream. Excellent.
My wife and I went on a Friday night for her birthday. The owners greeted us warmly and led us to a nice quiet table in the attractive dining room. We had a nice discussion about wine which led us to try a local red. When it wasn't to our liking they replaced it with a better bottle and didn't charge us for the first. The food was fabulous -- we ordered the scallops for a starter and were given an extra one so we wouldn't argue over the sharing! I had the duck and my wife had halibut. Both were excellent. We finished with the cheese plate and left replete and with pleasant memories. Will definitely go again the next time we are in deal. P.S. Be sure to make a reservation as it can get booked up.
First time here when visiting deal on Friday night. Came in for an early dinner 6pm, the restaurant is very nice and decorated very well, the food was amazingly wonderful in every way. A little downer on how the drinks were severed, to which for that sort of restaurant I would expect better for the non alcoholics out there. Our soft drinks came in small glasses with no ice, as if there not drink alcohol so they can just be served that in stead. I have not marked it down on that but I may suggest just because we don’t drink alcohol all drinks should be served with care and attention. Just my view only of course. We will still be back as a wonderful place to eat.
My friend kindly took me to Victuals for my birthday, it was my first visit.
Initial impressions were that it had modern, interesting decor and it felt unpretentious. We sat upstairs & were sat at the table near the stairs. It was a nice table early in the evening but it becomes a bit of a thoroughfare for other customers going to the toilet.
The service was excellent, the servers were friendly and polite. My only criticism would be that they reached over me to serve food.
The food itself was exquisite. My friend and I both ordered scallops, they were cooked perfectly and melted in the mouth! I had duck for main which, again was cooked to perfection. The mashed potatoes were creamy but I found the amount served was too much for me. We both ordered the rhubarb souffle, unfortunately there was a hair in mine. However, the staff couldn't have been more apologetic and arranged a replacement immediately. I'm not sure if this was removed from the bill, but had I paid I would have requested a refund on the souffle for inconvenience.
That said, it was a very enjoyable evening with superb food and a good atmosphere. Would I visit again? Possibly. I'd quite like to try the raid the larder evening on a Sunday!
Set just back from the beach down a quiet street this place is a hidden gem. We were politely greeted by the owners who were very welcoming. Upon being shown to our seat the decor was very modern and stylish- combined with the gentle music gave a very relaxed atmosphere. On opening the menu it was clear and not overwhelming with an emphasis on Kentish produce. I asked the host what he recommended and he suggested the lamb bon Bon which sounded delicious and I wasn’t disappointed - tender, full of flavour and garnished perfectly. My wife had the scallops which were perfectly cooked and melted in the mouth. For main my wife chose the roast lamb which was a very generous portion, as a roast should be, and very well cooked and presented. I went for the cod, tomatoes and chorizo. I am not a white wine drinker so asked for a recommendation of a red to go with this and a light, fruity and slightly chilled Kentish red was brought out. After an initial taste I was a little dubious as I found it overly fruity, however, when combined with the fish, tomato and mainly the chorizo I understood the recommendation and complimented the dish very well. The fish was cooked to perfection - I feel the plate could have been slightly improved by the using local cherry tomatoes to bring some sweetness to the dish but delicious nether the less. For desert my wife had the soufflé which had a lovely rise and she assured me it was light and delicious. I went for the chocolate mousse which was not particularly light but was incredibly rich and not to sweet - the honeycomb and fresh strawberries really brought it together and was a stunning chocolate desert. The coffee was strong and full of flavour which was a great end to the meal.
Overall great staff, lovely relaxed atmosphere, great food and well priced. Would recommend and will return for the full menu. Well done Victuals!!
