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 love Semolina - the food, wine, staff are always excellent and brilliant value for money. It's one of my favourite Brighton restaurants.

Semolina is my favourite restaurant in Brighton. The food is always delicious: flavours perfectly matched and perfectly cooked. The wines are carefully chosen and the selection contains some more unusual grape varieties which I enjoy trying. It is important to me that produce is sourced locally which is another reason I love Semolina.

Our first meal out in Brighton since March, due to shielding etc.. We felt secure, welcome and excited. The food was excellent, the cocktails and wine too, so it was a hugely enjoyable evening. We have visited several times in the past, so it was reassuring to see that Semolina's high standards have been maintained, and on tonight's evidence surpassed. A super meal to remember, thank you.

Really Like your food My only view is that the desserts were a bit bland the chocolate and chestnut cake was served cold which didn’t help ! But otherwise all was fine .

We had a delicious Sunday lunch here. The staff was friendly and enthusiastic and the food was excellent. The tables were quite well spaced. The only thing I would have liked to have seen was a little more ventilation but I know this is difficult when it is so cold outside.

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!
