Okay food but attentive staff

Fabulous location on the beach so you are a captive audience. Prices reflect the location a bit, but food only okay. Friendly staff made up for that.

The atmosphere is great with lovely views. Service is superb - the waiters were attentive without being intrusive. The food came quickly, was beautifully presented and tasty (the calzone in particular has a "wow" factor that others have posted photos of), though the menu options are limited, especially for vegetarians. The desserts were expensive (the sorbets were small portions and... More

We recently visited this lovely restaurant for our anniversary. It we the first time me and my girlfriend have been to Brighton and we really enjoyed this restaurant . The food was amazing and the staff were so friendly. The only problem there was no sunset but it didn't ruin the atmosphere. The portions of food were massive and the... More

Stopped for lunch with friends and ordered omelette and chips. The food was uninteresting and a small potion. The setting is nice and great to sit inside if windy. Wouldn't rush back

I come to Brighton every year for my birthday and fancied trying something new this year. Food was incredible and reasonably priced considering the quality, staff were faultless, we were in a rush so going somewhere new was a risk but service was impeccable. And of course, can't fault the incredible setting. Now my go-to place to eat in Brighton.

We had our wedding reception here on Saturday night and it didn't have gone any better. The food was amazing and the staff couldn't do enough for us. Perfect setting for any sort of party

I organised my parents-in-laws' joint birthday party here, choosing it based on friends' and family's recommendations and they were right on the mark. We took over the downstairs of the restaurant and enjoyed the fabulous view straight out to sea, while being protected from the biting winds. The food, drink, service and ambience were all perfect for a party of... More
