“best restaurant in brighton”
Reviewed January 31, 2011

it is a charming little place of understated chic hidden in a romantic seaside square near Waitrose. The quality of the service is exciting to the point of being touching. the food is unbeatable in cooking and ingredients and can cost as little as 18 pounds for three courses at lunch. i was surprised to find it 7 years ago and revisit them regularly but not often because they do not change the menue much, keeping mainly to their winning recepies

“Very good restaurant”
Reviewed January 2, 2011

This place offers excellent food and very good service. The decor is very stylish. Very nice atmosphere, relaxed and cosy. It's fine dining, but with rather reasonable prices. I had pheasant when I went there, it was delicious.

“Reliable and good food at small restaurant”
Reviewed December 2, 2010

We were fortunate enough to have a special Daily Telegraph dine out meal for £10 which included a starter, plus amuse bouche, main course, small loaf of bread, dessert, plus glass of wine needless to say fantastic value and the restaurant did not reduce the quality of their food for this special offer (good for them). We have eaten at this place before over a few years and the food has always been very good, and good value.

The only negatives is the decor is looking a little tired, the place being so small it can be a bit tight between tables, and on the day of the special offer the service was slow, especially waiting for the dessert (tart tatin).

“Fantastic”
Reviewed November 21, 2010

We have rated Gingerman our favourite restaurant in Brighton for the last few years. We went again a couple of weeks ago for a weekend lunch and the food was superb, as usual. The service is great, however its such a small restaurant you would expect no less.
