We left here disappointed. The meal we had was lacklustre, the service average and the bill definitely not value for money . Our nibbles of Artisan Breads and Italian Nachos were tasty enough, but grossly overpriced for a few bits of bread and fried pasta. My main course of wild rabbit casarecce was the highlight of our visit, being tasty... More

Crab & avocado salad, the smallest portion in the world, prawns wrapped in angel hair pasta, delicious! A meat pizza, not heavy on the meat!! Prawn pasta dish. Prawns overcooked, the whole dish bland. Children's fish goujons, functional. The service was lacklustre, can't be bothered attitude. Toilets are upstairs....small hand basins would have been nice for a two year old.... More

We were on a day trip to Brighton and decided to try Jamie's, we'd been there once before some time ago and enjoyed it then. We arrived about 5.30 pm and could see the restaurant didn't look too busy. The girl said she had a table but we'd have to leave by 7pm but immediately said she had other tables... More

A great dinner, interesting dishes, packed with flavour. Jamie's craft beer and the wine made for the restaurant was excellent and a really pleasant surprise. I was quite surprised the prices were reasonable and the staff very knowledgable and professional. I loved it!

This is only the second time I've eaten at Jamie's the first time being in Manchester. The staff were very very attentive, and the food was amazing, not just the taste but also the presentation. I even took a picture of my prawns The amazing thing about Jamie's restaurants is the good value, the food is amazing, the waiting staff... More

We travelled to Brighton to have a celebratory meal for our Grandson's 12th birthday at Jamie's Restaurant because of the children and it did not disappoint them or the adults! The menu was full of flavours, so much so that each of our party (7) managed to choose something different from the starters and mains and we were all delighted.....and... More

Pleasant restauarant but thought portion size of soft shell crab was bit measly! Wife had belly pork which looked nice. Service not overly attentive and overall a tad disappoining.

Finally we made it to a Jamie's restaurant and couldn't be more pleased about the experience. Decor is fun and tasteful, food indeed yummy and as you would imagine watching Jamie's TV show. Service was friendly and attentive. A very good experience indeed.

I've eaten at this franchise in London, however this one was well below average, the service was good however the soft shell crab, one of the more expensive items on the menu, did not taste of crab it was basically a fish cake in the shape of a crab. The dessert menu was very limited so plumped for the tiramisu... More
