“Great location”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Sitting outside for a sunny lunch with live singing. A lovely way to spend some holiday time. Food is great and the service excellent. Will be back for more as soon as I have saved up for the outrageous Brighton parking charges. Perhaps I will go on the bus next time.

“Excellent”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

I have been to this branch once before and suggested to my partner that we travel to Brighton especially to go to Fishy Fishy.

Firstly, they were very accommodating and flexible as we had to change our reservation twice. Both times, the staff on the phone were charming and friendly making us look forward to our visit even more.

On arrival we were 15 minutes early and they seated us straight away in the lovely glass covered area. The staff were welcoming and attentive without being at all obtrusive. They offered help when they could see I was struggling with a wine choice (having send the waitress away 3 times because I couldn't choose, she was not pushy at all and I was glad of the help) and suggested an excellent, inexpensive Gavi white.

We also struggled with our food order as there were so many delicious sounding things on offer. I liked that as soon as the waiter was asked for some advice, he spoke passionately and enthusiastically about the menu. He had obviously tasted everything on the menu. We chose to share the chilli squid to start the 1/2 lobster and the plaice (market fish) as mains. The portions were plentiful; we ordered 3 sides between us but would have only needed 2. The food was heavenly. It was fresh, light and beautifully seasoned.

Overall the food was delicious, presentation immaculate and the atmosphere and service was relaxed and friendly while being attentive and professional. I had a lovely time and would definitely go back. I can not recommend this place enough.

“Another great meal”
Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

We have been here a few times before and always found it to be excellent. This time was no exception. The welcome was warm and inviting. Staff really know their stuff on how to make customers at home. The food was fantastic, crab cakes and pate was top notch. Steak superb and fish and chips the best I've had for a while. Too stuffed for pudding but it is a must for a great dinner out in Brighton.

“Lovely food and atmosphere”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Had a special family meal here, seated at first floor window table. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the service was excellent. As we visited on a Sunday evening were warned that some dishes would not be available, however, we still had a very good choice of menu.

“Rushed service but great food”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Good central location and friendly staff. A few things on the menu weren't available but there was still plenty to choose from. Good portion sizes too!

We hadn't booked a table and did feel a bit rushed to eat and leave which we wouldn't have minded if we'd been told that they needed the table by a certain time for a booked group. As it was, we weren't told that and, although the staff were very friendly, we did get the impression that they wanted us to be quick. I would go back and will be sure to book next time!
