Another amazing dinner. This time on the back patio. The pork belly potin was full of the special flavour bright by the pork belly. The steak was really special. Seared with a compound butter to secure the base flavours. The fish pot of local seafood had an amazing broth. Full of flavours and a depth of taste that left the... More

Atmosphere was adequate. The appetizers were different Tapenade was good. Poutine was interesting but was given the gravy in a very small pitcher. Main course, we had lamb shank- well cooked but pricy and shellfish medley - no vegetables or salad, Dessert was good

my husband referred to the atmosphere at decimal 81 as "stark". that was the first impression. We started with a taste of soup and nice bread. This was great, but it went downhill fast when we got our entrees: his was beef with broad home made pasta in a sauce, stroganoff style. He did not care for the blandish, uninspired... More

Tried this restaurant for the first time recently and I was extremely impressed. I love good food, and this place didn't disappoint. The food was delicious! The service was great! We went with another couple and we all said it was a 10/10. If you like Thandi, Splash, or any of the other good restaurants in town, you will love... More

This was our 3rd visit to Decimal 81 and the food did not disappoint. Roasted duck was excellent and everyone in our group enjoyed their meal. Be sure to make reservations 1 - 2 days in advance, especially for weekends. Small number of tables keeps the atmosphere cozy. This is not a place to rush in and out of but... More

We were 4 people for 7:30pm sitting. it took far too long for them to seat us when we had a reservation. it took even longer to order drinks and longer again to order our food. Then they were out of some wine and a dinner item. I had the lamb shanks and I could have easily made that at... More

Everything from our Amuse-bouche to our dessert was excellent. Service was wonderful! I have an allergy to shellfish and the Amuse-bouche was an oyster, it was quickly returned to the kitchen and the chef sent out a replacement for me! We will definitely be back.

We ate at Decimal 81 a few weeks ago while in port on a cruise. The food was spectacular, we are foodies, which is why we went there, and while the menu is limited everything we had was wonderful, and we all left stuffed. It was in the middle of the week, and the place was almost empty as we... More

Call the restaurant and ask them about their week night specials. Currently, they have a different special offer on several week nights (not Friday or Saturday, I don't think....) The deal on a recent Wednesday night was too good to be believed. I did believe it, though, and my husband and I invited some colleagues from our business to join... More

Food was great. Service friendly and professional. Couldn't understand why it was not packed. But luckily for us we not only got a great meal but company and some sightseeing tips from the young lady and her partner a young, happy, energetic, young man server. We would definitely go back if in the area.
