Great seafood, lovely setting indoors, with outdoor option too. Very good menu choice. Good service. On the expensive side but value for money.

Lovely Seafood.We had an amazing Oysters. One of the best I ever had. We went there on one of the Saturday afternoon for Lunch but we love the food so much that we end up going there for next 3 consecutive Saturdays. Halibut is so big and delicious.

Our son recommended this specialist sea food restaurant which we loved. It was a warm sunny day so we could sit outside and people watch whilst eating an excellent lunch. The sole bonne femme was superb. Having not seen it on a menu for years we decided to try it and it was a very good choice. Service was quick... More

We decided to go to Brighton for the day on Bank Holiday Monday and came across this lovely restaurant. The staff were really helpful and the food was amazing. A real gem of a restaurant. Would definitely come here again when next in Brighton. Ps. The Lobster is out of this world.

Food was good especially dessert, however duck rillette sub... More

I ordered Queen scallops as a main, loving the garlic sauce that they came with, but changed it immediately for a starter as I had spotted the halibut. I was served king scallop with black pudding and pea puree, both of the latter I hate. I explained that she had misunderstood me and I hadn't mentioned King, black pudding or... More

We have eaten here a number of times in the past when visiting Brighton, but not for a few years. We now live in Brighton and we were not disappointed when we returned. If anything English's has got better. The menu is larger and better presented and the restaurant seems to run more efficiently. We had a table outside (not... More

Have visited here a few times over the past several years and have never been disappointed. They serve proper British seafood without the fussy frills that can mask the beautiful flavours of the sea. Excellent selection of crustacea and fish, and a very good wine list to accompany it. Not a cheap place, but you get what you pay for.... More
