My husband and I have been to this Restaurant several times since 1962 and returned to it recently for our Golden Wedding Anniversary, taking our Sons, their Wives and their Children with us. As always, it was superb. The Seafood is always fresh, beautifully cooked and presented. They serve other food for those who are not "fish eaters" and that, too, is delicious I am told, although we always have fish of some kind or another. It is situated in Brighton's Lanes so is surrounded by interesting little walkways with lovely shops. The Service at the Restaurant is excellent. It has dining areas on at least two floors and, during nice weather, an outside dining area. Can't recommend it too highly. Good value for money as well, although not cheap! Booking advised!

We love coming here for lunch - we were lucky to have a very sunny day last week - and we headed to Brighton. We have eaten at English's on several occasions and view it as a treat. The staff are always welcoming and we have not been let down by the service or the food. The bouillabaisse is very good and quite a meal on its own. They have a good selecion of oysters - all the better with a glass of bubbly to start. The wine list has some good value wines - and a small but nice selection of wines by the glass. The downstairs dining area feels comfortable and intimate. Have eaten here 3 to 4 times and have not been disappointed.

Amazing fish place - excellent quality.

Pricey but you know you are going to be paying a premium for quality like this.

Thoroughly enjoyed the food and the quaint setting. Service was excellent too. Only comment would be that as there is no music is is very very quiet, particularly at off peak times. A tiny little tinker of music of some description would have topped it off perfectly and just taken the edge of the atmosphere. Everything else was pretty much perfect though. Would definately recommend!

Lovely meal made by the attentive service of Antonio, one of the managers.
Antonio, an Inter Milan supporter, looked after our party of four (five if you include the dog) as we enjoyed our meal al fresco in chilly April sunshine.
The Spring Menu is exceptional value.
English's of Brighton will be a 'must' on every visit of ours to the south coast town.
Experience was made even more enjoyable with Charlton FC later getting a draw against Brighton.

Had dinner on Saturday night and the food was simply brilliant. We each had a glass of the house champagne which was very nice, the crab starter was delicious and the main courses were equally fab - the monkfish curry in particular.
Bill for 2 with wine and 3 courses was £120 inc service which was very reasonable for the quality of everything.
Highly recommend this place to anyone when in Brighton
