Thanks for the opportunity to comment. The acoustics make the room quite loud. A couple of specials were not available, although it was only 12.30 and there were few people in! The food was hot and quite well presented, however one of the child's portions of fish was a tail end and poor...we should have sent it back. I think that tables should be cleared of empty glasses etc and tables wiped, this did not happen. We ordered a couple of deserts, after 15 mins with no desert I asked again, clearly our order had been forgotten, the waitress said it was coming but would not be charged....even then it took a while to come even though I assume it was pre made and plated. All in all rather a disappointing experience for our first visit and poor value for money. A final thought, the entrance is not clearly marked from the outside. I would appreciate a return comment if possible.

Although a blowy overcast day, we enjoyed the view from the glazed front of the building on the seafront. The quality of the food was equal to a high class restaurant. The hake was lovely on a bed of creamy mash and spinach. However the tables and chairs and cutlery show it's underpinnings as a cafe, otherwise I would rate this 5* throughout. Thoroughly recommended.

Lack of atmosphere. Food arrived promptly after a long initial wait for drinks and order to be taken. It was early and there were few customers so no excuse. A lack of warmth and no real friendly welcome. Food was fresh and well presented.

Excellent evening, thanks so much. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The added bonus was the entertainment that had been organised to celebrate a 60th birthday party! We'll be returning again soon, that's for sure!

dreadful service ruined our special lunch - chaotic restaurant management - i had to go and ask for service - all of our drinks were wrong or badly made and took 3/4 of an hour to arrive - i had to ask three times for bread and it was of poor quality when it eventually came - poorly trained staff and incompetent manager - such a disappointing experience d for a special family event - and overpriced too - soggy chips and lumpy avocado puree with hard chunks of avocado in it - oh dear - we left as soon as we could and didn't dare risk the dreary selection of puddings

we had a delicious meal including elderflower spritz and crab (with a bucket of chips) which was really fresh and tasty. The service was efficient and friendly and much better than we expected in a beach cafe. A welcome change to have service with a smile! Will definitely make the journey and be revisiting!

A fresh as the sea air seafood platter, served in a stunning location with possibly the friendliest waiter ever. A memorable dining experience from a fantastic restaurant. Highly recommended.

We all enjoyed our lunches but, as the cafe was full, the noise levels were high and we had difficulty hearing one another speak.

Hi, I had the crab salad as a main and I have to say I was hugely disappointed. For 13.50 I expected to get a whole dressed crab but was presented with a soggy salad comprising mostly of lettuce and overpowering red onion in a mayonnaise dressing. There was hardly any crab and no accompanying bread etc. Big let down from a restaurant that prides itself on its fish.

We cannot fault the food or service however we were disappointed how bland the interior was. I had seen this in Coast Magazine a while back and thought it would be more special.

We go there occasionally as we live in West Surrey. We have always had great food, service is excellent, not too pricey but always good value. The location is one of the real draws for this restaurant as it sits directly in the promenade overlooking the pebbled beach and sea. We will continue to visit the East Beach Cafe on a periodic basis.

I understand you are a fish restaurant, but you do need to cater better for vegetarians. Choices of desserts was also extremely limited (choice of one!) The service was patchy, going from excellent to under-par, and had few too many people asking how our food was (felt like every few mouthfuls.
