One of the best restaurants in B&H

Very good food, in the right quantities and nicely presented. Great flavours and combinations. Service very attentive. Only 30 odd covers and was full so a good buzy atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

One of the best places to eat a fine dining meal in Hove. A bit noisy at times due to crowds and popularity which is well deserved. Good and friendly service. Great cooking.

This is how to do restaurants - gob-smacking food, friendly but not OTT service, relaxed atmosphere. We went for 2 courses (main and dessert), with an extra lamb kofta/roasted onion as an appetiser (a loaf of bread as well with what appeared to be honey and garlic butter, delicious). The mains were exceptional - guinea fowl and coco beans with... More

We've been coming here for about 15 years and it is brilliant. With the demise of local competition eg La Fourchette, it has still set the bar very high for others to aspire to. The menu changes and is appropriately of the moment, without being a fad. The service is absolutely impeccable. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

Third time we have eaten here and each time it has not failed to impress. Food is excellent and very imaginative with a profusion of flavours, wine list is extensive and not badly priced. Staff are attentive, very knowledgable and efficient. Cannot fault it and will be going again ASAP.

Visited Gingerman last night with a friend for a celebratory meal, from the moment we walked through the door the service was impeccable. The restaurant only has a few tables but the atmosphere is wonderful. The menu was innovative and interesting - my friends rabbit satay was delicious and something neither of us had tried previously. From start to finish... More

Service was good; food was good; low on atmosphere for a Friday lunchtime although the 4 of us had a good time. It just doesn't shape up to the prices charged. So only 3 stars.

Visited The Gingerman with friends to celebrate my husbands birthday last Saturday. We had a fantastic time and the staff were very knowledgeable about the fantastic menu. We all really enjoyed the food and the homemade bread was great! We all chose something different as the menu (although small) and a good variety. Many compliments to the Chef and team!!

What a lovely place. Fabulous food, simple but elegant decor and personal service - I can't recommend it highly enough. The food is of a very high quality with some original flavour combinations. Wine list is reasonably priced. Generous extras like appetisers and freshly baked bread with homemade butter complemented the food. Be aware that the tables are quite close... More
