We felt that the plaice sharing dish was expensive for the size of what it was. The ricotta desert was far to savoury. All other dishes were lovely. The wine list was great. Dog friendly which was great.

I've been a big fan for a long time, but this was not a good experience. There was simply too little choice. We were two and didn't want the same thing, so I had a choice of only three mains (Bavette, basically bad steak, Haddock & Squash). I didn't fancy any of those, which made it really tough. My wife had the Squash, which was nice, but basically a side dish (but cost £14!) and £18 for six oysters is exhorbitant. Overall, we spent £100 and basically ate four or five small starters/side dishes, really disappointing, we might come back if in a four or six, but I'm not sure TBH. Service good, food tasty and always a great atmosphere, but the menu is simply too inflexible (I fancied the butternut chicken, but was told I couldn't have unless I was sharing).

Poor service and what happened to the platters? Now the meat and fish is just one type belly of pork or plaice. Tasty food but so it should be for £35/£39 a plate. If ordering wine should really be informed if it is a cloudy, unfiltered wine as the waitress said they all were but we were the only table with cloudy wine. Hopefully will get back to how it used to be. Nice venue and nice food.

Without doubt my fave place in Brighton. Try the taramasalata with the home made bread, just so fresh, simple and exquisite. Service as as ever excellent, great advice and friendly, genuinely pleased to have us there. Put a smile on our faces, Bistro food can be that good.

We had a fantastic lunch in this charming and atmospheric gem of a restaurant with blackboard a la carte and set menus and a highly tempting wine list which would loved to have made better of! The Babette steak was awesome! Just a thoroughly good meal in great environment.

Booked a table for 3pm here, arrived at 3.05 and they said we would have to choose our lunch quickly as the kitchen closed at 3pm.. not sure why you’d allow bookings at 3pm if you close the kitchen same time?!! So we were rushed into making a decision. Both went for the steak which was not good at all. Fatty, bland and boring. Service was not good.

It was lovely but we were sat at a table for 2 downstairs and every time diners came in or out, a cold blast of air came through and I was cold. All the food was great quality and loved the menu. The crab bisque soup was tepid and I prefer it to be hot. But if it’s meant to be served tepid then I stand corrected. Other than these 2 points our meal and drinks and the service and atmosphere were good. Merry Xmas
