Wonderful family lunch

We recently had lunch at Sage - a big group of us: aunts, uncles, in-laws, siblings, nephews and neices ranging from age 2-82. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating. We took over two tables on the terrace and sat enjoying the sun and the fabulous food. I had the fish cakes, which were... read more

What a delight to find a superb restaurant in Tarrant Street. The ambience combined with the delicious menu and superb wine list was such a treat. Thank you.

Tasty spicy merguez sausages on an authentic French Baguette, Gravadla, raw beetroot & horseradish cream salad, 2 glasses of beaujolais, interesting french music, sunny terrace, great service - what an Easter treat! You have to experience this place for yourself - well recommended!

The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The food was very plain, in my case I had steak and it was bland and nothing browned, not seasoned or flavoursome. It was tender, served with thin fries, straight from the freezer and some mixed leaves. I thought overall there was little skill involved. My husband had prawn pasta that... More

We visited for lunch on a sunny spring afternoon. The food was great and the service was attentive. There was a lovely atmosphere sitting outside in the sheltered court yard. The only minor annoyance was a baby which kept screaming, but I can't make the restaurant down for that - especially considering she was our daughter.

A great little bistro tucked away in a sunny courtyard. Friendly, attentive (not overly) staff and great, straightforward food

Family brought us here for a meal whilst visiting and we enjoyed everything about it. Really personal service - cosy and sweet inside - European style. All food great - Fillet Tail steaks which we hadn't seen on a menu before but was really tender and delicious, a risotto & cod with piperade sauce which sister in law thought was... More

We love finding places like this. Bistro style, but not in a branded way, really unique. Lovely hosts & atmosphere. We shared a charcuterie starter and I had grilled artichoke & thyme tart for my main meal, boyfriend raved about his steak with homemade fries! Lemon sorbet drowned in prosecco for pud. Divine. Good start to our Sussex explore. Thank... More
