Well.. what can I say about this charming Cafe/Bar. The coffee is top notch and the atmosphere is amazing. Really polite staff and service with a smile. If you are in Brighton you really gotta check out this place. Phil

We went there to celebrate my Mums birthday. Food was good, service too and the restaurant had a nice atmosphere. My husband left his sunglasses there and they ran after us, after leaving the restaurant, to reunite him with his glasses! Would recommend for an informal meal with friends and would definitely go back again.

Stopped off at the Green Man while walking down from the station and found it to be very unusual as decc'ed out with North African equipment and could have been in Morocco. Great Staff and wonderful taped music while I was there.

Very tasty North African restaurant at a good reasonable price. Friendly staff too. We sat upstairs to eat good amount of space at tables. Down stairs clean loos and a great place for a small party of people with low seating and mini stage. Would def recommend a visit.

A nice place to grab a quick and relaxed drink with friends. The environment attracts a varied crowd as they have a unique selection of north African cuisine among other unique dishes at reasonable prices. Once a week on a week if your in a particularly spirited mood you can take to the stage in their basement for open mic... More

Although situated in Queens Road the main drag to and from Brighton train station, most of the tourists pass this quaint little place by, which is good news for us locals ! Good North African food sets the Blue man apart from other pubs/eateries in the area. We popped in for food and drink early one Saturday evening. From a... More

Great food, wonderful drink selection, brilliant service. Not a lot of room upstairs although the downstairs area is luxurious. Accessibility an issue - but when isn't it in Brighton? Recommended.

The lamb tagine is perfect! Delicious, and not over priced. Staff were friendly, and a good drinks menu. I'll definitely be going back when in Brighton.

Description
The Blue Man is a relaxed and informal Cafe-Bar with Brighton Soul and North African flavour. You can pop in for coffee (best in town!), Amazing selection of tea, a lovely wine list or a bit of food if you're hungry. We're chilled and informal and will make you feel very welcome. In the evening we host live events, acoustic nights, dancing, DJs and parties. Pop downstairs and feel a world away from the hustle and bustle in a haven that's a home away from home...
