Exquis is a really small, independent restaurant near the town centre and the beach. It's run by French people, and is quirky and appealing. It's quite dark inside, painted mustardy yellow and red - and there are not many covers, so book or risk disappointment. Don't come here if you are expecting an immaculate place with formal dining and really... More

Had a dinner here with my wife and the service as always is great. The is food 'proper' French food. Nothing much more to say. Remember it is not a fast food outlet and sometimes they are busy! Enjoy the food, wine and conversation like the French do. If you need quick cheap food get a kebab!

Probably not to everyones taste. I have to say this in the hope that there will be a table free when I'd like one again. It is french, with an English touch. Not complicated, not expensive and the Halibut was perfect. Don't go there for american portions, it's French, and that's why it's so good.

Four of us had an outstanding meal at Exquis this evening. The atmosphere was pure London/Soho Theatre land, small, intimate and very French with the emphasis on the food rather than fancy decor and the service attentive without some of the OTT treatment of less experienced restaurant staff. Whilst the modest pricing of food and wine might better reflect the... More

I am a resident in Eastbourne and Exquis is a restaurant I always enjoy going back to. The atmosphere is always welcoming and relaxed and the service is faultless. Only thinking about it is mouth-watering. If you haven't tried it and you like Frehch food give it a go: not only is it proper hearty food it is also delicious.... More

Superb service, superb food. Not only were the staff friendly but they were efficient which is the key. Nothing bad to say about this place. Will absolutely definitely return.

We must have walked past this gem several times without really noticing it... what a shame. We booked as it was a Friday night, but did not really have to (England v Peru was on the TV). Inside the place looked very authentic where the emphasis was on the food and not the decor.... The menu was small which to... More

We did some research before our visit to Eastbourne and thought Exquis looked a good bet for a decent meal. Bad choice. For starters, they didn't seem to display their opening hours. They don't seem to open for lunch so we went in the evening. We both started with onion soup. To be fair, it didn't claim to be French... More

Fabulous food, great service and not bad value even though we managed to pick the most expensive time to go! A great find, we will certainly be revisiting.
