Visited last night with my wife, we arrived early and were treated beautifully. Everything was brilliant from the Viognier to the fresh oysters to the turbot and through to the dessert sharing platter!!! Thanks to Pavel for taking care of us he is a superb waiter! Merci and bon apetit!

Yes the restaurant is small and tables are tight but that is part of the charm and the food is fantastic. To be best appreciated go on an empty stomach and make sure you have plenty time. On the house we had mini prawn cocktails at the beginning of the meal and chocolate mousse at the other end! Appetisers, followed... More

' English's ' has been an institution in Brighton for many many years. As a Brightonian, born and bred, English's has been synonimous with elegant dining. Nothing has changed. The restaurant was intimate, the food excellent and the service just right. Considering the quality, the price was not expensive. Looking forward to my return trip.

I had dinner here because one of my 3 Korean guests had eaten here before. The resturant is tiny and the tables are very small and close together. It has the feel of a 1960 - 70's type resurant which was all very interesting. We were greeted in the bar area by a very pleasant gentleman, whom I assume was... More

A fabulous traditional, very comfortable, white table cloth restaurant. Very attentive and happy staff. Fruit de mare was excellent and a great sharing price. Very tasty meals all round and NO chips!! Excellent.

I want to give this place a good review because I had had a great time. Service was top notch and the food looked delicious. The problem is, I found both my starter of poached halibut and my main of bouillabaisse, extremely bland. I couldn't distinguish any fish apart from the salmon. The White fish was tasteless and the sauce... More

While staying in Brighton, my husband and I visited English's for dinner one evening and enjoyed it immensely. I had the Loch Ryan Oysters for starters and they were delicious and fresh. I then had the Grilled Lobster for my main course and it was very tender and fresh as well. My husband had the Dover Sole which he enjoyed.... More

Unfortunately we didn't book - on a Friday evening, which normally in a restaurant, is asking to be shown the door! However, the excellent staff at English's accommodated us at the oyster bar, and what a fantastic atmosphere. Great Oysters, Great Seafood Platter washed down with some of their beautiful champagne. The barman was full of information about any of... More
