We popped in for a coffee and ice cream. The waiters were very attentive and the coffee and ice cream lovely. Would return here for a meal if in the area. The cafe is in a good position on the seafront.

There used to be a basic cafe at the rear of this famous ice cream parlour but that has now been upgraded with more comfortable seating and has an excellent evening menu. The giant mixed seafood platter was pretty impressive and included a whole lobster but was a little overpriced. Less successful was the antipasto of cold meat and cheese,... More

I came here for ice cream on Sunday, and was really shocked by the service. Being a lovely sunny day it was very busy. There was a long queue, but this is to be expected and I didn't mind waiting. There is a blackboard in the window with the ice cream flavours on, but unfortunately this needs refreshing as it... More

The member of staff concerned hasn't ever caused us a problem before and is normally very good natured. It was hot and very... More

We always come and eat here, when visiting family in Hove, and can be sure of a warm welcome. From the front, it looks like just an ice cream shop (the ice creams are indeed excellent), but it venture past the ices to the back, there is a seating area beyond the kitchen. The food is of a much higher... More

Had an early dinner here sitting outside on a sunny evening. Service was friendly and efficient while the sea food was great.

Living locally and having only moved to the area a few months ago,this is my favourite restaurant to go to! There is always a warm and friendly welcome even when staff are very busy with a restaurant packed full of customers (which it often is)...I never usually write reviews but after reading a couple of recent, although in the obvious...
