After checking with Tripadvisor and calling the restaurant for parking guidance, we set out for a Sunday lunch with sea views. Blessed with beautiful weather for November, we enjoyed a really great meal on the sea front and would heartily recommend to anyone. The ambience is pleasant and the management/staff are very helpful. Check for yourself......

We visited on a very windy and cold November and was warmly welcomed. Good home made food, fair prices and good service. Would definitely return.

Situated on the front near Brighton's West Pier, this is an excellent seafood restaurant. The modest frontage conceals a stylish interior, where a wonderful variety of seafood options are available. Service is prompt and friendly. Portions are generous and fresh. The food is very tasty. And very generous reasonably priced desserts are available too. All the food is reasonably priced,... More

After a drive from Bristol the first place we headed for was Melrose. We were greeted warmly and soon seated ready for a lovely meal of fried skate wing and it didn't disappoint. It was perfectly cooked finished off with home made apple pie, I hope I might get another visit in before I go home

The Melrose is situated opposite the West Pier, towards Hove. It is also opposite the new Tower which is currently being built on the sea front (Oct 2014). Two of us chose salmon with chips, and one had a fish platter of a variety of fish. Salad and peas were served with the salmon and it was a tasty meal.... More

We dropped in here after walking around the local area. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The fish was fresh and there was a good selection of wine to go with it. I would go back there next time I visit Brighton.

Melrose will give you good portions of freshly cooked fish and chips from around £7.00 for say fillet of haddock or cod. The Sea bass costs £15 . Calamari starter for £3.50, garlic Mussels starter for £6, The children's menu is around £3.50. The restaurant is clean, if a little dated. It's well managed with friendly staff. It reminds me...
