A Welcome Surprise

A cold,dark January evening with nowhere to go. Happened on Mussel Row by chance. Food excellent and well presented. Neither wine list or food proved to be over priced yet both of a high standard.

A cold,dark January evening with nowhere to go. Happened on Mussel Row by chance. Food excellent and well presented. Neither wine list or food proved to be over priced yet both of a high standard. Special mention for the outstanding service - friendly,efficient,relaxed and unpretentious.Couldn't be faulted. A rarity in British restaurants. Definitely on my 'go to' list.

We visited here for my sons 14th birthday in January after reading trip advisor recommendations and we were not disappointed. Everything about the food and service was perfect. The mussels were the the best we have ever tasted, I'm so pleased we spent my sons birthday here and I would highly recommend it.

Probably a mistake going for meat in a seafood restaurant but it was on the menu. The veggies were fine but the lamb was thin slivers of industrially processed, tasteless "meat". Otherwise the fritto misto was good as were the fish and chips. They were also very helpful with a small child's food allergies. Pity.

Situated on the quay in Littlehampton a delightful Resturant with a feeling of French chic - layout within Resturant is mixture larger and small tables which gives a warm atmosphere, pristine linen napkins. Complimentary hand made bread and oil dip, staff smart, friendly and attentive. I ordered Dover sole, perfectly cooked, in mouthwatering sauce, vegetable medley again perfectly presented. This...

We visited just after New Year with other family members who recommended Mussel Row. We are all fish/seafood lovers, so this was an excellent choice. The menu included sharing meals for 2, both starters and mains, and we all opted for these. There was an impressive and very well cooked selection of fish and seafood items, especially the seabass and... More

Possibly the most upmarket restaurant in Littlehampton, good varied menu, correctly cooked & well presented, always pleasant staff. Have visited as part of a large group of 40 & also with just two of us & everything was consistent. Would visit again for sure but it is a bit more expensive than other local eateries.

I booked a table for 8 to celebrate my dad's birthday, and was so impressed by the service and quality of food we received. The combination of high quality produce with the unfailing cheerful, helpful and relaxed atmosphere in this place never ceases to amaze me.
