The food here is fantastic, I would return again and again, if only I lived in Brighton! The menu is, (or was during our visit), divided into 3 savoury sections - meat, fish and veg, with just 4 dishes to choose from within each category. Portions are tapas size and you are advised to order 3-4 dishes each, which was probably about right for 2 ladies, though the food is so good I could have demolished 1 or 2 more, and the beauty of a short menu served tapas style is that you can order more at any point and continue the flow. Each dish was absolutely superb. Complex, balanced and alive with flavour. We could hardly wait for the next to arrive. Each did with perfect timing. From memory we particularly enjoyed the lamb and the Alexander buds. Only one dish from the array we sampled failed to turn us on, a chocolate/coffee drink confection. Aside from that our visit was an unabated success. Service was professional, laid back and informed though we sat at the pass so by and large dishes were served to us by the chefs. The restaurant has 27 seats and just a handful of these are at tables, the rest are stools around the pass, the idea being that you get to watch the dishes being prepared from the entirely exposed gadget packed kitchen. Eating this way would not suit everyone and tables can be reserved if that is your preference. The ethos of the restaurant is that the food is the star so the environment is pared back, the menu (for both food and drink) is kept short, and rigid restaurant conventions are done away with. It certainly worked for me! Excellent - get there if you can.
