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.

Honestly the best place to eat in Brighton in our opinion. Service is warm and friendly, food is always amazing, wine is spectacular and the new cocktails were fun and tasty

Staff were helpful even before we arrived, responding kindly to our questions about bringing dogs and a nut allergy. During the meal service was attentive and friendly and above all, the food was absolutely delicious . We’ll be back - just as soon as lockdown allows

From the outside it looks very unassuming and ordinary but once you walk through the door the magic begins. Lovely atmosphere, great looking interior with a wonderful host and service. The food was amazing!! Great presentation, amazing flavours and perfect portions making it really worth the value. Will be back again!

Semolina has had to lose some tables because of the Covid rules but still a nice atmosphere. The food is delicious and we will definitely be back

This was my third visit and as always the food and service were amazing. I appreciate that it's a very small restaurant but I did feel that our table was too close to the others to be Covid secure... perhaps there should be some screens up too?

First meal In Semolina after the lockdown and we were very impressed as always! We had the three courses and each of them were absolutely delicious. As always, the service is excellent, and looking forward to our next dining at Semolina.

The type of restaurant we all want in our neighbourhood. Fairly priced, well sourced ingredients cooked by a talented chef and served by a super friendly front of house team. Brilliant

It takes something a bit special to get us into a restaurant at the moment - and Semolina gave us just that. A warm welcome, albiet hidden behind a mask, but most definately there, was followed by Bloody marys, and a wonderful 3 course meal. The service was first class, the food a mix of the unusual (pressed Octopus), the wonderfully expected (roast Beef and Chicken), and the exceptional (chocolate brownie with salted caramel ice cream). Add a beautiful bottle of organic red, a couple of coffees with liqueurs - perfection.....

This was one of the best meals I have eaten recently. The food was imaginative and attractively presented. It is excellent value for money, if it were more into the town, I am under no illusions that it would be considerably more expensive, being in a small street enables the bistro to keep it's food keenly priced. There were obviously many " returners" in the restaurant which is proof that the food is good. I can not fault the food myself and my partner ate, we enjoyed every mouthful and will certainly be returning in the future.

Semolina is a little gem of a restaurant. Independent and unique. Lovely atmosphere and delicious food. If you’re looking for something special this is the place to go. Even with the covid restrictions in place the experience was not compromised at all.
