This was not my first visit to Jamie's in Brighton, but it was the first in over a year. Hard to work out why I had not returned since my memories were generally good. I ate there twice in its opening few weeks when things were still being ironed out and since then had enjoyed two or three family meals there but for some reason, possibly the sheer amount of people and noise it generates in the evenings, have generally avoided the place. So, this time I went for lunch during half term with the kids and my mum and we had a lovely time thanks in part to the food but more so to the wonderful service. the waitress was simply brilliant - informed, attentive, smiley, great with my (quite fussy) mum, but not patronising or pushy and very good with the kids, who are seasoned restauranteurs themselves. We enjoyed crispy squid whilst the kids tucked into their tasty sliders and then had a wonderful pizza special alongside some perfectly cooked but ever so slightly over-salted fresh ravioli. More than in many places I can remember the service completely made this meal and it just makes you realise how important that is to the experience. Should bring me back more often.
