Visited Hove branch. Exceptionally warm and friendly service. Tasty food and good selection of starters and mains. Only thing that could be improved is the layout. Some of the tables are very close together which doesn’t allow for much privacy. Also the door hinge needed fixing so as people were coming and going this was slamming quite loudly which became annoying. Overall though, very good experience and would definitely visit again.

Great children's portions and lots of choice for them too. I wanted my son's to try new food so It was great to select a number of dishes for them both to pick from. All the meals were delicious. We had many recommendations to visit and we weren't disappointed. I've already been recommending to my friends. The service was friendly and attentetive without being over powering. Will definetely be back 😁

Great food as always. Restaurant was busy as expected on a Saturday night. Would be nicer if the tables were a little further apart.

We had a lovely meal at the Giggling Squid in Hove. The food was very tasty and felt fresh. Our waiter guided us through the menu and subtly urged me against a very hot dish without patronising me which I was grateful for! The only two small things I would change really are 1) the atmosphere - it's just a little dry and 2) the price - it feels a little expensive for what you get compared with other Brighton and Hove offerings...they are only small criticisms though - I did really have a lovely time - thank you!

We waited half an hour for our drinks- it wasn’t even full at the time. We were sat on a table right in the sun, it was really hot, and when we asked to move table, we were told it wasn’t possible, which would have been ok if we’d had drinks!

We were given a very confined table and asked to move which seemed to be difficult and involve a lot of discussion. The free table we asked for in the window upstairs, but were not given, was not at any point occupied in spite of us being told it would be.

Main down side when booking online is that to confirm the booking you are agreeing to leave by a certain time. Food was amazing, did seem to wait quite long considering it was half empty but staff were polite and friendly. Not a place I’d choose myself again but if someone wanted to go there I wouldn’t say no.
