When organizing a rare family get together traveling from Brigton, London and Brussels, Belgium it is great to make a successful choice. Gingerman "A la Carte menu" certainly answered the questions from the Belgians about English food not being that good. Excellent choice, delightful mix of flavours. Certainly must reserve beforehand. A lunch menu is also available a a very... More

We went here for an anniversary meal for the in-laws and the food was delicious. I'm a vegetarian and that was the only veggie main so I was having a quiet discussion with my husband about this and the waiter overheard and arranged for me to have something else. It was so nice that I didn't have to make an... More

Best food in Brighton!! Cannot fault this restaurant, which is tucked away off the beaten track. Well worth a visit - but make sure you book, as I can't imagine a restaurant this good will have many tables available at short notice. Can't wait to go back!

Located on the side of a hill on a narrow street going up from the prom the restaurant could be easily missed, but that would be a real shame. We had a warm welcome and were offered a choice of tables. We chose from the lunch special menu, The starters were very tasty and for mains I had a very... More

i wish i had paid more attention to my English master because then i would have the adjectival prowess to justly praise this excellent room. Food excellent, front of house staff brilliant, helpful, knowledgeable and welcoming. Very affordable, even with 3 courses and wine. Oh yes and a really nice wine list. If you can get a reservation do go,... More

We had the 3 course lunchtime bargain menu at £18. Food was delicious, wine was good, excellent service and not one did the waiter come to ask 'was everything all right" as it was and they knew it!

Overall I found this restaurant disappointing and frustrating. The dishes are based around some quality pieces of meat, but the restaurant fails to do the central elements of each plate justice. Overall, the food is poorly seasoned, and the flavour combinations fail. The kitchen knows what a good plate of food should look like, but they don't know what a... More

We went for the 3 course set lunch, there was al carte as well which was more expensive. The set lunch though was not poor... More
