It was a satisfying meal to complement Ipswich's win. We had the soup of the day and white bait. The soup had a balanced touch of stilton. White bait was meaty and portion size was good as a starter. The steaks (Ribeye and Sirloin) were done to our liking - juicy and rich. We had to skip the desserts as... More

First visit with family for my birthday and was really pleased. The food was scrumptious and the staff were attentive without being too in your face. It has a lovely ambience and I would recommend it. The table had been decorated with balloons which was a nice touch. Very enjoyable.

lovely ambience, staff very pleasant, food wonderful! We'd been sent to this restaurant by mistake as the Hotel Manager had booked the wrong one, however, despite our disappointment at not being at the waterfront restaurant at the Marina it was a fantastic meal!

My husband and I regularly frequent this fine establishment. We have gotten to know the staff well and we always receive a warm welcome. They cater for gluten free and have a wide menu selection. A warm and friendly night out. We love it and are back again tomorrow for more. Thank you Brasserie. Aaron and Suzi.

The food here is good, reasonably priced and the atmosphere is fine. The thing that really let this place down was the staff and their lack of attention to detail. There seemed to be no manager managing the staff, they seemed more happy to socialize at the bar with other staff members rather than take notice of their customers. It... More

Very good menu. The location first attracted us, now we pop in for lunch about once every 6 weeks, lovely atmosphere, service and food, great place to go with friends or for a special occasion.

Excellent is the only word that I can use to describe The Brasserie. Before I visited Ipswich, I checked the list of great places to eat and to be honest, the very first one that I tried was Twenty5, merely because there were all those raving reviews, saying this and that. But when I finally got there, I was disappointed... More

I was down in Ipswich visiting family and they took us out to The Brasserie for lunch one day. I'm not usually one for writing reviews but I had to for this place - it was fantastic. The food was brilliant (I'd highly recommend the crab salad and cajun tuna steak) and great service but the waiting staff. If I... More

For starters I had the whitebait, which was great the fish was cooked just right and the tartar sauce was spot on. We also had the lamb koftas, which were excellent cooked... More
