Had a meal with my husband at The Blue Man this week and I can honestly say it was fabulous, probably one of the best meals I have eaten this year. We both had chicken wraps, they were very tasty and roasting hot ( one thing I can't stand is being served luke warm food!) the side salad was fresh... More

Last year I popped in on my way to the station and the coffee was so good I dropped in on my way. The coffee is excellent and I had the tapas style merguez sausage snack that was delicious and just enough for what I wanted. The staff were as friendly, cheerful and as helpful as last year.

After a lovely day at the beach we popped into The Blue Man for a drink and a piece of cake. Wicked chocolate cake, fresh and moist, not too sweet. Friendly staff, great music. We're still sitting amongst the North African artifacts, enjoying the vibes. Definitely recommend a visit when in Brighton.

I love this place. We were a group of 12 guys ranging from 60+ to 27 years old. We drank and ate all evening from 7pm. The food was amazing, great platers for sharing with larger groups. The service was rapid on the night and Jess was lovely on emails before hand. The venue has a great atmosphere which makes... More
