Great spot on Hove seafront

This little hideaway is perfect for several things. Have been here many times and it never fails to impress. By far my highlight is the exquisite seafood dishes served here. Razor clams, squid, crab, lobster.... Nom Nom Nom! They also serve meat dishes; mixed grill, bolognese, carbonara and... read more

Superb ice creams. A regular cycle along the prom for us with an ice cream incentive. Have also eaten here and the children's pizzas are enormous!

It's always interesting to read the "terrible" reviews on a restaurant just to see what other people's negative views are and see whether they stand up. This review will never even get close to joining this section. Book a table for 2pm, unfortunately we arrived at 2.30 (got off a the wrong bus stop). We had to wait for a... More

We enjoyed a nice walk along the prom to Hove but had no idea this place existed. I'm so glad we went for lunch, my son George and I had the best spaghetti vongole ever!! Loads of clams and pasta made on the premises perfect.

Great restaurant. Few places (so reservation is almost mandatory) but the food is wonderful. We went here for lunch and we had fried calamari (huge plate even if it was intended only for one person !!!) - pizza - risotto and cod fish "Naples style" Everything was great - we almost thought we were in Italy :) Service is very...

This was absolutely perfect for a lunch with my friend.The pasta seafood dish was so much better than I had expected .It was black pasta with scallops from the specials board but I guess most of their homemade food would be good. The interior is a bit dated but that really does not concern me.We had privacy, lovely food, a... More

My parents and I come here every time we visit Brighton. Fantastic food, great service, reasonable prices and the ice cream.... well you'll just have to try that for yourself!! We came on Sunday and had fortunately booked a table the day before, as it was completely packed and they were turning people away. To start, we opted for mussells... More

A prime located restaurant right on the beachfront without another restaurant in sight, Marrocco's has two distinct faces - purveyors of good old-fashioned ice creams at the front of the restaurant and an authentic Italian to the rear. Deep-down, I wanted to give this fine eatery 3.5 stars and erred on the conservative side merely due to the somewhat dated... More

I booked Marrocco's for my girlfriends 30th birthday this weekend past. There were 25 of us who turned up for the meal and we were looked after from the minute we got there until we left. Not one of our group had an issue with food orders which can be difficult with such a large group. The staff were brilliant... More
