Critics Review
A Hidden Delight!
8/10
One thing I have always loved about Brighton, is there is always a hidden delight to be found. This can be anything from a small coffee shop serving the most amazing brownies, to a finding a restaurant serving an authentic and most favourite dish from your travels. In this case, the hidden delight is a small, independent cafe/bistro tucked away on Baker Street just off London Road. Semolina is owned by the friendly husband and wife Linda and Orson Whitfield who are passionate about using locally sourced ingredients in a simple way, to make delicious and fuss free food. Everything they serve is homemade, including bread, pasta, ice cream, and are served up in a way that you can dine in for a casual lunch/evening, or a special occasion meal.

Semolina is an absolutely lovely restaurant with delicious food, a charming atmosphere, and the friendliest staff. It's our go-to place for a relaxed meal with out-of-town guests, because it shows off the best of Brighton.

This wonderful restaurant is one of the top 20 of Brighton's best restaurants However, it is not listed as number one? I have eaten here on several occasions and the food is always superb. I have also eaten at some of those restaurants that were listed first or second and although good I still feel Semolina is my number 1 choice. My husband and I had our anniversary dinner here last Thursday and the dishes were delicious (or as my husband says - Yummy Plus! Try it. You will love it.

I’m a qualified chef and travel for business a lot constantly trying new restaurants so when I dine out I tend to have high standard; and I must say that Semolina has always delivered from the unfussy and flavoursome food menu to the service. I’ve never had a disappointing experience in this restaurant. A Must try!

Had a wonderful lunch at this delightful restaurant. The food was so fresh and tasty (I had the panzanella starter and beetroot/curd main) and the wine recommendation went with it perfectly. The service was friendly and efficient. Will be returning when I am anywhere near. Louise P.

the food in the restaurant was excellent, very fresh well presented and delicious, the desert was amazing! Unfortunately there were some very loud people in the small restaurant shouting down their phone on a video call and when the restaurant discretely asked them to quieten down were very loud in their displeasure at this. Also a couple brought a large dog into the restaurant which was a little strange in a food establishment. These things marred our visit somewhat which was a shame as it was a special occasion and quite a pricey meal for us. My only real negative comment was that staff kept trying to push buying alcohol with the meal when we stated we did not drink at the start of the meal.
