I first visited this restaurant about five years ago and am pleased to report that it still provides excellent food and friendly service...

The restaurant was friendly warm and quirky accompanied with... More

Superb fish, beautifully prepared and daisy fresh. Excellent wines at the cheaper end of the wine list. Terrific minerally house Prosecco and my finest Picpoul de Pinet to date for £20-odd. Very good value for money. Lovely staff, who are not overly attentive and a beautiful place.

A little bit of Brighton history with a French twist. A traditional but quirky restaurant with lots of character, excellent service and truly delicious food, beautifully cooked and presented. Not to be missed on a visit to Brighton!

Fabulous surroundings and food. Tables just a little too close together but excellent service and food. Crushed peas were lovely. Tartar sauce clearly homemade and with a kick. Portions a little on the small side if you're very hungry, but a great experience. We go to Brighton once a year and always bok one nights table at English's.
