Description: Located on Paston Place in the heart of Kemp Town village, Sam's of Brighton is a stone's throw from the Brighton Pier and the Marina. Sister restaurant to Sam's of Sevendials in the heart of Brighton, this chic and elegant family-owned bistro - with an understated neutral colour scheme, wooden floors and deco-inspired lamps - is popular with a fashionable local crowd. Sam's serves classic yet creative dishes made from the finest seasonal ingredients, and the restaurant's award-winning menu features favourites such as the Shetland rope-grown mussels with spiced coconut, vanilla, and red peppers; roast rabbit loin served with soft polenta and savoy cabbage; and the rice pudding with blood orange for dessert. Sam's also has an excellent selection of both old and new world wines, many available by the glass and carafe. Sam's of Brighton was voted "Runner Up BEST UK NEWCOMER" by the Harden's Guide 2010.

This is a really gorgeous place. I have been to Sams regularly now for a number of years and I can honestly say I have never been disappointed. I love the friendly staff and the lack of pretentiousness. Amazing food, always gorgeously cooked.

Sam's never fails to deliver on quality ingredients cooked to perfection and presented elegantly. The chef does a wonderful job of marrying the best local produce with the finer touches! I am always so satisfied with my meal and always leave smiling.

For main my wife had the steak and I had the vegetable stack. The meat was perfectly cooked and my dish was unusual and tasty.... More

I had some time to kill today in between some hospital appointments, so decided to treat myself to lunch at Sam.s. Eating alone in a restaurant can sometimes be uncomfortable but I was made to feel thoroughly welcome and at ease right from the start. The food was exceptional - the beetroot mouse starter, sea bass main and coffee with... More

Been a while since we were at Sam's but we picked up a Groupon or Living Social voucher and called in for lunch. We had splendid starters after enjoying some excellent fresh bread with oil and balsamic vinegar - my soup was perfect and my wife's ham and poached egg on broccoli spears was simply outstanding. On to the mains... More
