We had a bad service, which is a real shame. our order clearly got forgotten and we waited around an hour for basic food. Whilst tables around us were being served that arrived a long time after we had ordered. When the food arrived the order was incorrect and had to be taken away and which involved us not eating together. I asked for a glass of wine and was given what I can only assume was a take away plastic peel cup of cheap wine that you would buy in a cinema or newsagent and charged £7.95 for. I asked for a glass as the plastic cup was awful they said no! But on another table they had real Glass. I love the location but the food, wine and service needs a huge improvement. I would only recommend a tea or coffee here. Not food or wine.

Knowing that there will be many customers due to lockdown easing I would have hoped that you would have plan for more waiters: the ones that were there were brilliant specially as they fronted the many complaints in the delay in service! It’s a shame, the portions very mean and the music from the DJ sent me to bed! The place has all the right things to make it very special, all it needs now is expert and efficient management. There are so many places to visit in Brighton that I don’t see myself rushing back but good luck!

We had to wait a fair while just to have any order taken. By which point we ordered food and drink together. There only seemed to be one person serving about 10 tables in our area and the staff looked a little flustered. However the food was tasty.

I know there are limitations at the moment. The food felt very deep fried, quite greasy. Atmosphere was lovely and the staff were great.

The Corona tap was on, but the beer was warm and flat, which was a shame (the guy did swap it for a Hells though so no issues there). The food was excellent.

The crab was rather overdone in its tempura and needed some accompanying carbohydrate - rice or chips! Croque madame excellent value! The wind was very cold and could have been mitigated by using the area to the east of the building. Ashley was charming hostess.

Very tasty food and wines. Shame we couldn’t get up and dance but understand the need to practice safe social behaviour in these testing times. Look forward to frequent visits and enjoyable service from the attentive and courteous staff.

Terrible. System allowed us to make a reservation for 5.30pm but when we arrived at the restaurant, it was closed! We had no email, no phone call, nothing to alert us to the restaurant being closed. Will not be recommending and will not be trying to re-book.

Service was abysmally slow. Tables were all dirty event though it wasn’t that busy. We waited 40min for 2 coffees that were really rather average in the end. It seemed like there was not enough staff to go around the ones that were on duty seemed to lack training. Such a shame for such a prime beach location

The Service was terribly slow. No one really watching tables to see if anyone wanted anything. Took nearly 20 mins from. being seated to be asked If I wanted anything. That only when I caught someone's eye. One more minute and I would have walked. The same when trying to get further drinks and getting the bill. I shall not rush back.

It is quite difficult to get a drink as staff very busy and hard to get their attention at times. Very helpful though when required re settling the bill etc

Booked to hear to Zap legend Neil spin some tunes - really good. DJ lady after was really good, would like to hear more! Food was really good and good value. Drinks service a tad slow, but probably saved us from another bottle of the delicous Nyetimber fizz! Special occasion, great location, we'll be back soon for more...

Great spot right on beach opposite old pier, more spacious and less busy than further up the beach. Very nice helpful staff, Mac and cheese could be better (bit bland and tasteless), and non alcoholic cocktails should be offered for the many non drinkers - there is only one non alcoholic beer available, and the bar staff refused to make non alcoholic cocktails even on request, which I didn’t understand... but overall would recommend.
