Vibing on The Deck
You will go for the food and definitely stay for the ambience. The Deck satisfies both culinary and relaxation desires.
The semi-outdoor setting of The Deck is ideal for the summer. The rustic decor contributes to the ambience and vibe that make this restaurant so popular. Manager Richard Spencer Jnr told Food that this is part of the reason his patrons keep returning. The Friday after, work jam is particularly popular.
Wednesday's 'wings nights' are also very popular. The curried mutton has a reputation of being flavourful down to the bone. And, if you are an appetiser kind of person, the stamp and go (salt fish fritters) will have your mouth watering.
Then there are the drinks. Everything from beer to cocktails go down smooth at The Deck. You can get including a tropical blend to combat our climate, like The Executive that has the perfect sweet-sour flavour of pineapple and lime juice with the smooth touch of Appleton Estate 12 Year Old.
There are also frozen beverages such as the Deck Summer Daiquiri. It is a flavourful blend topped off with Appleton VX. The Epic is a simple drink with only two ingredients (Appleton and coconut water) and is a must-try. There are too many options to name here, but you could have fun trying them all.
All in all, The Deck is the place to spend some quality time. It is open from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m.
