This restaurant looks very cosy and clean and the service is very good. I had an open sandwich of salmon 'ceviche' and cream, it basically is a large slice of cold bread with salmon on top and cream underneath, I was told the salmon had salt and sugar, therefore, the word ceviche, nonetheless, ceviche is raw fish cooked in lime...

Waiter had no idea what the 'special of the day' was, so went for the traditional Fish and Chips. what a disappointment. cheap fish and overcooked chips. For 2 lunch meals and 2 drinks I paid over £30. great location, but eat fish and chips down by the beach.

Attracted by a Thursday special of half a lobster and half a burger. My wife ordered the scallops starter and the beet (root) side. I ordered the special. The two scallops started nicely from the sea, but one was severely under-cooked, the other was fine. When the virtually raw one was sent back, the kitchen sent out word that WE... More

We found out once inside that the "Burger and Lobster" is only on Thursdays... I wanted potatoes instead of chips with my burger - they said OK but the manageress (I assume) came back and said that would be a £1.50 supplement. So I had chips. The burger was excellent and the brioche bun made it better. My wife had... More

Late lunch visit. The decor and staff seemed pleasant enough. Ordered myself a burger and my two year old a croque madam.e Fortunately she turned her nose up at her food. I wasn't so smart. Burger didn't taste great but thought nothing of it. That night had bad food poisoning that has lasted a few days now. Strange because I've... More

My wife and I spent the night in Brighton and really fancied a nice breakfast in the morning. This place looked nice so we gave it a go. The woman who took our order was very nice and friendly. When our food came the disappointment started. My veggie breakfast was the most measly plate of food. To give an indication... More

Visited here to get out of the rain. At first glance the place looked lovely with very appealing cakes on display etc. We found the staff to be rude when we asked if there were tables upstairs. We let that go and decided to order some drinks and a piece of cake to share....15 minutes nobody had bothered to take... More

I suppose we should have realised that any restaurant with tables to spare on a Saturday evening in Brighton just after pay day was probably not that good, but we were just pleased to find somewhere with a space. On the plus side the staff were delightful and polite. However that is where the positive ends. The service itself was... More

Visited this cafe with some friends and experienced extremely poor service from the staff. They were impatient and rude. A friend asked if they had jam to accompany her croissant, they said they didn't have any, then a while later a sticky plate of jam was dropped on the table in a hurry and she was charged £1 for it....
