Description: One of the highest rated Restaurants by our customers on TripAdvisor in West Sussex. Consistently ranked at number in Shoreham by Sea. We are a small family run restaurant just a few hundred yards from both the unspoilt Shoreham Beach and the River Adur. Just a west of Brighton we source the very finest local Seafood. With Steaks, and vegetarian food for the non fish eaters. Popular menu options include our Seafood Platter, Fruit de Mer, local lobster,& Surf and Turf. We recommend our specials board with an exciting fusion of flavours offering the seasonal catch of Monk Fish, Skate, Halibut, just to mention a few. Mid week we offer a special two course mid week menu. Relaxed an informal but with exceptional high end food !!!

Into the Blue has really established itself as one of the best eateries in Shoreham by Sea over the last three years. The food is beautifully fresh, well presented and often delightfully original in the combinations. The staff make you feel like you are one of the family and nothing is ever too much trouble, so if you do not like a particular ingredient then they will make the dish without it. I have visited over the last few years with between one and eleven people and they always perform. Into the Blue has certainly become a regular for me and my friends.

What an amazing hidden gem. We only found this place thanks to TA so only fair to leave another review. Great value for money, very friendly staff and amazing food. Such a nice surprise to also find a good restaurant that makes kids feel comfortable. Between our group we sampled most of the menu and top marks to all of it, especially the seafood platter and what a great specials menu too. We will most certainly be back, we live near Southampton and it is well worth the journey.

We have been coming to this restaurant since it changed hands a couple of years ago and the food just gets better and better. It's simply the best fish restaurant in the area. The menu is creative and the fish is cooked to perfection. The owners are fantastic and nothing is too much trouble, I can't rate this place highly enough.

Great value for money, lovely staff and most important, wonderful tasty food. We both had dishes from the specials board . The lobster thermidor was very flavoursome and the brill was cooked perfectly.

Looking like a conservatory from outside I had never bothered to enter this place under its previous guise of The Seafood Experience. One night after a couple of drinks in town we made a snap decision to go and try it. Into the Blue is under new ownership and having finally crossed the threshold we found a small, informal interior that seemed to work with an open kitchen that always inspires confidence. The service was very good, the place was packed and the food we had was great. I tried the lobster variant of surf and turf and finally discovered the point of this dish. The flavours and textures complemented each other, the fillet steak was perfectly cooked and the whole dish was generous and well presented on a wooden platter with a small "chip pan" of exceptional chips. Since our first visit we've returned several times and taken my parents too, they were delighted. We are also now benefitting from a generous loyalty plan. I feel like I shouldn't be sharing this info as I want to get a table. Steak and seafood done well; we are yet to try a dish that disappoints.
