Definitely my 'go to' place for great good on Brighton beach. Service is fantastic, food is always on point and you can't get a better location, especially when the sun is out! Consistently excellent … what's not to love

Great restaurant, we love it here. The food is excellent, really good quality and the choice of wines ample. The staff is always very welcoming and attentive. We always book early (12pm) so that we can get the tables next to the window with amazing views (slightly less amazing at the moment with all the refurbishment Brighton is going through!)

Thank you for a delicious meal and for being so accommodating to our late arrival. Black Velvet and Jersey oysters was a fantastic revelation (and we're from Jersey so our oyster bar is set high!)

Great evening had by all - supreme platter fab value for money but wine list is quite lumpy. Champagne cocktail was not chilled enough but just minor niggles

Had an amazing time here for my partners 27th birthday. The staff were so friendly and amazing considering we had three young children with us who kept making mess and dropping glasses. As a family we asked loads of questions regarding the menu. All answered with the upmost respect and in a friendly manner. Would definitely return but maybe as a couple so we can officially bag that front window seat and view of the beach. 10/10 awesome guys. Keep it up. Thank you for the special birthday touch.

Loved it. Excellent family celebration meal. Splendidly presented dishes with great ideas. The waiter was an absolute legend. Helpful and generated a really positive atmosphere. Two caveats, however. >Definitely a bit too dark for a place where you have to carefully avoid fishbones etc. >the food was definitely under-seasoned. The basics such as salt and pepper were largely missing from all the dishes. The restaurant supplied extra salt and pepper on the side but we all know its not the same as cooking with it. This must be a British thing. I find myself constantly eating undersalted food wherever I go! All in all, would still highly recommend this establishment.

We were in the separate room as there was 7 in total but the noise from the rest of the restaurant was quite overwhelming at times.

Still a must-visit restaurant but a shame that what was the best shellfish platter around now has no whelks, no winkles and is padded out with run-of-the-mill Atlantic prawns

An excellent birthday lunch with my partner and two friends. The food was beyond wonderful and the service impeccable, particularly from Marco who couldn’t have been more attentive. My only criticism is of the uninspiring decor and indifferent lighting but frankly you forget about that when a plate is put in front of you. Will definitely visit again.

Same as the last time we ate here, our choice of dish (dover sole and halibut) was not available although dover sole was written on the board downstairs. The fish ordered was cooked well enough but served with a garnish of baby leaves only. Side order of fries were of the matchstick type, not preferred to accompany a whole fish. Overall, with cover and service charges included, an expensive second choice meal. Maybe in a few years time when we have forgotten this experience we will try again....
