A conveniently short walk from Brighton Station and the city's famous shopping lanes and exceptionally located along Brighton's vibrant seafront. GB1 is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner and offers the south coast's finest and freshest fish and seafood caught daily. A fantastic a la carte menu, specials from the blackboard and affordable set menus are available. Although fish and seafood dishes dominate the menu, seasonal meat and vegetarian dishes feature. The stunning central champagne and oyster bar seating 20, offers a more relaxed dining area in which to share a seafood platter and watch the expertly trained chefs prepare oysters and other fruit de mer. There are also private dining options within the sea facing terrace or GB2, ideal for canape receptions or private celebrations. Whether you want a quick bite and a glass of Taittinger Champagne, a quiet dinner or celebratory feast, GB1 offers the perfect dining experience for all.

“Delightful Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

It was the first time I have eaten in GB1. I can only say that it was a lovely experience. Sitting at the bar was very good being able to interact with the chef behind the counter. He even tempted me to try my first oyster which I thoroughly enjoyed. Spoilt for choice being able to select from both the extensive menu and also the 'catch of the Day' board. The Fillet of Gurnard I selected from the catch of the day was extremely tasty. My gin and cucumber cocktail was an excellent start to what was super meal. Can't wait to go back.

a chance to socialize with other Diners
The food was well presented and reasonably priced.

“Brilliant steak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

A friend booked us tables at gb1 I was not aware that it is a seafood restaurant but luckily for me had a steak option on the menu as this turned out to be one of the best steaming I have had for a very long time.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

Excellent staff, excellent location, I had oysters, scallops, fillet of steak and lemon sorbet, I was seating around the bar, you could see how is the bartender mixing the cocktails and how is the seafood chef preparing the platters. It was a really good evening. I really recommend it.
