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.

The decor felt slightly dated, however the food was incredible. We’ll definitely come back.

Semilina is consistent in its quality and friendly service. Our guests said it was the tastiest and best presented meal they have eaten.

Really enjoyed visiting Semolina for the first time. Interesting & delicious menu, well-matched & priced wines. Whilst full it was a quiet lunch time sitting so a little lacking in ambience but won’t stop us coming back soon.

A bitterly cold night, but warm and cosy inside. Food was great, service friendly and we had 20% off the bill due to a special offer, so very good value for money!

This was such a wonderful place and I have already recommended it to friends visiting Brighton and will continue to do so. Absolutely delicious food very reasonably priced, service was warm and friendly and the mocktails were so tasty. What an absolute gem - lucky locals

The quality of the ingredients and the expertise of the cooking in terms of flavour and texture are superb. The well-priced and carefully constructed cocktails are not to be missed. Don't let the slightly non-trendy location put you off. Semolina is a must for those who appreciate quality at a fair price.

I have always thoroughly enjoyed my visits to Semolina - the food is great, some lovely wines and the service friendly and relaxed. Also no loud background music to contest with - a real bonus these days!
