Excellent place, lovely and kind stuff and perfect food! My favourite was a risotto :-). I lived near the Blenio and it was my favourite restaurat. Miss that place so much! Atmosphere is very cosy. This place is perfect for dinner with your better half. Defeinitely best restaurant in Brighton!

I'm lucky enough to live very close to Blenio and on the 3 or 4 occasions I have eaten here it has been faultless... stunning locally sourced ingredients cooked perfectly (the pork belly with black pudding WOW), wonderful staff and beautiful, romantic decor (candles & fairy lights - what's not to love?!). Not the cheapest meal you will eat in... More

I had my 2013 team christmas meal in this restaurant. I've never been before and I have to say their food was superb. It was fresh, hot and filling. All christmas meals I've had previously have come out lukewarm and left me hungry at the end with a hole in my pocket. I can say Blenio did not disappoint, every... More

We found this place by chance and so pleased we did. The atmosphere, staff and food were all fantastic. We can't wait to go back and repeat the experience.

Staying in Brighton and picked this place as there seemed something about it. I am so glad we did. We were celebrating out daughters 16th birthday and had a lovely evening. The food was delicious, the Prosecco to die for. Thank you so much for making the occasion so special from the moment we walked we walked through the door... More

We chose this restaurant after reading the reviews and it was a half way point for us to meet up with friends from Tunbridge Wells. If all eating establishments took a leaf out of Blenios Bistro welcome and friendliness then they would do better.We can only describe the staff and owner as excellent,not only in manners but service and attention...

I took my visiting Mum there for Sunday lunch and we liked the decor, atmosphere and service. Our main courses were tasty and super value. It's deservedly popular with the locals.

Easy review. First impressions, great. Decor etc, great. Service incl welcome, great. Food, great. Simply a top place to eat. Going back soon for a group fondue evening as can bank on them doing it really well. Would have given them 5 stars but had a relatively simple lunch so saving that for after the fondue...hopefully. For those who want... More
