About GB1 Seafood and Oyster Bar Restaurant
GB1’s philosophy is quality and simplicity, offering a fantastic choice of the finest and freshly caught seafood from Brighton’s shores along with classic English cuisine, with contemporary touches, constantly updated by Executive Chef, Alan White’s brigade of passionate and inventive chefs. The striking Lobster Burger is a must try at GB1 as is the Fruits De Mer and an Oyster or two. The seasonally changing menu also boasts meats from the grill and classic Sussex favourites along with vegetarian dishes too.
Nice, creative menu. Good food although both our fish mains were on the edge of overcooked - it is very hard though. Good portions and great service, although added to the bill.
Absolutely wonderful meal. Amazing service and lovely evening.
Excellent afternoon tea - lovely views when the refurbished is complete
We enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea - the service was spot on, smiling & attentive without ever being intrusive. Quality of food was excellent, cakes & pastries were lovely & sandwiches were delicious (could have done with a couple more! 😊) Would happily recommend!
I liked everything. Was all perfect to me. My partner didn't like sandwiches bread, he wanted better quality. Thank you very much, very enjoyed. Already recommend you. Will come again!
Obviously a really nice hotel and afternoon tea but not quite worth £60
The restaurant is a bit depressing it could definitely do with a refurb. The food is quite good but not as good as thy think it is. Excellent restaurant prices without the backup.
Très bien ! Nous reviendrons !
The tables and sofas felt a bit worn and dated. Unfortunately there was scaffolding up so no sea views. Pleasant staff, fabulous cocktails!
Very nice experience
Faultless food, beautifully presented. The variety of tastes and the construction of each plate excellent. Service was slow to start with and a bit disorganised (maybe the 5.30pm setting). Ironically got better as the restaurant filled. It would have been helpful to know that there were considerable building works/scaffolding around the Grand.
When waitress realised it was my Birthday, she came with a complimentary decorated plate and chocolate cake. So thoughtful. Made my Birthday brunch even more special. Thank you.
Afternoon tea at the Grand Hotel Brighton is a fantastic experience, utterly faultless.
The Sunday dinner was lovely, just the right amount for 3 people and the staff would happily refill my friends gravey which was also lush.
Had a great time
Excellent food and service. Been there a number of time and the quality is always at the top. Highly recommend
The meal we ordered did not match the menu.We were not informed of the shortage of certain ingredients .We did not have a starter and therefore had to wait 1.30 hours for everyone to get the meal ....It was a table for ten , however the restaurant was not busy...very disappointing not the usual standard expected of The Grand .No Manager came to us to address/explain to poor service.We had decided to take 8 of our friends as past experiences had been positive..Unfortunately not this time and with a bill of approx £400....
I'm providing this review in response to follow up email request to do this from GB1. Food & Drink - 2 star. Starters were good - Scallops, oysters. Main courses average - fish & chips, lobster, hake (good). Dessert - poor ... I had pre-ordered profiteroles as favourite of the birthday girl (94 year old) and they weren't as good as the ones from M&S. Atmosphere - 1 star. The place is undergoing building works which should be done soon. Had asked for terrace and told ok, but there would be hoardings. Arrived, and on the day the terrace was shut ... something about safety. So in the restaurant and very forgettable. Service - 3 stars. They went out of their way to arrange the gluten free food for 1 diner. On the day, generally attentive. Took an age to get the pre-ordered deserts ... think something must have gone wrong in the kitchen. Nice birthday song. Value for money - 1 star. Bread (4 chunks in basket) = £3. You should get this included at a place that is claiming fine dining. Water = £4.75 a bottle ... seriously???? Cost £200 for four of us, with just 1 drink. Lobster was £42 in this ... and that is just for a lobster.
The only reason I didn’t give full marks for atmosphere was due to the building works obscuring an otherwise perfect sea view. We hope to visit again once the works are complete. We visited as a birthday celebration and the surroundings, food and service made it feel like a special occasion
Afternoon tea was everything we hoped for. Everything was presented impeccably and the food was delicious, even the tea tasted divine. The setting was very pretty and airy and the air conditioning was welcome relief from the heat wave. We ordered one afternoon tea each and found it very filling, in fact we were so full we asked for some of the cakes to be boxed up so we could take them home. Even the doggy bag was posh. A lovely way to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. We are looking forward to returning at a later date when the view of the sea can be enjoyed, as it is obscured somewhat due to the outside building work currently taking place.
Having waited over an hour for our meal the steak and presentation was very poor. However one if our party had fish and it was lovely. Very disappointing overall.
It was a birthday treat for me and lovely gesture to receive a card from the staff/hotel. All the staff were very friendly.
A very lovely afternoon tea , with very polite professional curtious attentive staff.
We visited here on the Sunday morning for brunch and we very disappointed, because of the prestigious name surrounding you’re hotel we expected the quality of the food to be of a high standard along with the service. Our food wasn’t very hot, and I ordered extra toast with came out very burnt , when we complained about this the waiter didn’t seem to bothered , however we were brought more toast 20 mins later at this point we had finished our breakfast 😧
