Visited Il Bistro for breakfast on a Sunday morning. It was fairly quiet but we arrived just after opening and we had a lovely warm welcome from our waiter. We ordered the full English breakfast, I had tea and my husband a flat white. It all arrived promptly, was good quality, nicely cooked and very tasty.
We will certainly come back again for breakfast and has prompted us to come back for a dinner in the near future.

We spent a few days in Brighton trying out different restaurants. There is such a choice of places to eat but we found this to be one of the best restaurants around. The food is really excellent good quality and price wise very reasonable. Very friendly staff we really enjoyed our evening.

We had a lovely meal here and the staff were fantastic. Loved the fish casserole and i also had the pate for a starter which came with garlic bread and was very good. My boyfriend ate the fish pancake for a starter which was really tasty and I stole quite a lot of it! The owner was lovely and friendly and we really enjoyed ourselves. Also made use of the Tastecard so had the cheaper dish of each course free which made it really good value.

Had a nice meal here before heading to the Brighton Dome for a classical concert. Steak was well cooked and all the dishes was reasonably well presented. We were in a rush and although it wasn't the quickest service, our waiter was certainly friendly. All in all a short, though good experience.
