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.

I have been several times to this wonderful restaurant because first and foremost the food is consistently great. It's a small and friendly place and I always enjoy my visits. The location is not right in the centre but despite that it does always seem to be busy and I suspect with a lot of regulars. I will definitely be returning. Thank you Semolina!

I arranged a company social at Semolina. The staff struggled initially to get us drinks as the restaurant was full and 11 of us arrived at once. However, overall it was an excellent experience. The food was first class - everybody in our group spoke highly of their dishes. Linda and her assistant were absolutely charming.I had had an excellent lunch here some months before; it was nice to take other people and for the arrangement to work so well on a busy Saturday evening. I will definitely be eating here again, as will a number of my colleagues.

Hi Orson & Linda :-). Here's the review I posted on TripAdvisor...thank you again sooooooo much!!!! What an incredible evening a group of 11 of us had at Semolina last night!! Every year, my husband and I host Thanksgiving in our home. Because we're in a busy season right now, we didn't feel we could do it this year. So, we asked Orson and Linda (co-owners of Semolina) if they would be willing to make a Thanksgiving meal for us. See the photo for the custom menu they created just for us. Our entire party raved about the starter, the main meal and the desserts...all were amazing, and the wine selection was fabulous too! On top of that, the warmth, hospitality and genuine joy in serving us was not only palpable but truly made for a wonderfully memorable evening. Additionally, they gave us the freedom to decorate the table for the special meal and gave us all of the help we needed to set the table. Thank your Orson and Linda so very much for making our Thanksgiving celebration a great one! And to anyone else reading this review, let me just say that you are in for a real treat if you head to Semolina!

This was our sixth visit to Semolina and again, was not disappointed in any way. We brought some friends with us on this occasion and they enjoyed it as well. They even made a booking for the following week. A true gem in Brighton.

I and some of my friends prefer to pour our own wine so that we can know clearly how much we have drunk. Thanks

Really great food in a friendly informal setting, Little bit chilly sitting by the door on a cold evening but that’s the only slight negative We could come up with.

We visited Brighton the weekend of Oct 19th, I had done some research ahead of our visit and made a reservation at Semolina. The Staff were friendly and professional, the food was simply wonderful. We were taken by the unusual combinations and flavours, truly superb. The calibre of which, would rival any Michelin starred London Restaurant and I would not hesitate to recommend Semolina to friends and family. We had a super evening and a very memorable meal, very well done to all.
