Had to try an English Lobster

A seafood lunch overlooking Brighton Beach during an English summer - if you are going to do it this could be the place. A large range of seafood dishes as well as many other English favourites. The lobster wasn't as good an one from West Australia but it's hard to beat good English fish. Great... read more

We came here for breakfast and this restaurant can easily be overlooked because it's on the corner of the road near to regency square and is about a 15-20minute walk away from Brighton Pier. The food was AMAZING! The service was fast, the restaurant was clean and was quite busy with customers! Would definitely come back here again for food... More

Went over the BH weekend. Table was booked as we knew it would be busy. When we arrived, they couldn't find the table we had reserved. Hung about whilst they tried to hurry up a table who were nearly finished so they could clear the table for us. Small table for 4, very cramped. Waited 20 mins for them to... More

Beautiful food, bustling atmosphere and very friendly staff. We arrived in Brighton on Friday evening and managed to get a walk in table. I had the mixed grilled fish, two sardines, halibut, tuna steak and salmon. The others had Halibut Mornay and the mixed grill which were also all very good. We made sure we booked for the following night... More

If you're looking for a true seafood feast, this is the place to go. It was fresh and delicious. We tried the fish feast for two, perfect. The moules marinier was good, but we've tasted better, still good. Fish soup was a good start but filling, so if you have a small tummy, cut to the chase and head for... More

It was a very nice meal. The service is outstanding and the fish and sea food great. I had oysters highly recommended, although I think the best oysters ever were in Namibia. Recommend to book in advance.

It has become a bit of a tradition that in our week in Brighton, our small group dine one of the evenings at The Regency. The place is always busy, has a great atmosphere and even greater sea food which is cooked fresh to order. I had the seafood platter that had several types of fish including prawn, scampi, cod,...

just happened to drop by and made a snap reservation, by 7.30pm that evenning I was glad I did. Just an unassuming week day evening, but the queue was out of the door..just full of mainly asian student diners chowing down on reasonably priced sea food of all kinds imaginable. We were squeezed into the back dining area but stll... More

What a lovely restaurant. Service is quick but be sure to make a reservation at peak times. We had the sea food platter which had lobster thermidor, oysters, clams, king prawns and mussels - absolutely fantastic meal. The staff were very attentive and made sure everything was to our liking. We will visit again next time we are in Brighton.
