We were recommended to this restaurant as a family run establishment serving delicious food. We were not disappointed the fish was excellent as too was the steak. It was obvious when we were there that many customers were regulars but as first timers we were still given attentive service. Would recommend it to family and friends.

Nothing fancy here. Just fresh, delicious seafood that's good value for money. Oxana (I hope I got the spelling right) made our dining experience even better by telling us a bit of Brighton history. The apple pie was a nice end to the meal. We asked a passerby where to eat in Brighton and we sure are thankful he recommended... More

We were passing this restaurant in search of an evening meal and paused to look at the outside menu. The door was immediately opened and we were urgently beckoned in by a waitress. Perhaps that should have been a warning! The waitress handed us menus and stood over us waiting for a decision. I had to ask her to leave... More

My wife and I were recommended to go here after we had been sadly disappointed at the Mercure Hotel Restaurant. We got there at about 9pm and were welcomed into a warm and inviting restaurant, decorated for Christmas and a great atmosphere. We ordered starters including oysters which were excellent, and incredibly well priced, and fish platters. The main meal... More

After reading the wonderful reviews about this place and seeing the mouth watering pictures of the lobster platters I took my partner there for dinner... The food was not bad but average at best. I was expecting something more upscale than what we received in terms of presentation and flavour but the biggest let down was the grossly out dated... More

This is the best meal ever, I am glad I went mid week for lunch, as it must get very busy. The food is of the very best, the service is great and it is very friendly, a really wonderful place to eat.
