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 undoubtedly one of the finest restaurants in Brighton and I feel it's very underrated. You just can't fault the welcome, service and amazing food. Highly recommend.

Had wanted a dinner reservation but know this restaurant gets booked up very fast so went for a late lunch. The on-line booking is very easy and we had a great meal.

After multiple visits, this superb restaurant still scores 5* on all fronts. Never failed us yet - constantly inventive and always the best ingredients evident in every dish.

We had an amazing time here with a large group of 8. First of all they rearranged the tables to fit my disabled daughters wheelchair. Then it just got better with attentive service and lovely food. Not one of my party had a single complaint. I can see why this restaurant has to be booked so far ahead. It should be no1 on anyones Brighton list. 5 stars all round. Thank you

We had a fantastic meal on Friday night and particular highlights were the gurnard, the pumpkin and feta side dish and the figs with blue cheese ice cream and honeycomb.
