Called in here for a quick dinner last Thursday eve when we were down in Brighton, having seen the good reviews on TA. We were initially perturbed to be taken to a table already occupied by another couple on the other side, but actually not a problem, as the place was so buzzy and the table fairly wide, so that you couldn't hear their conversation. We were then presented with a selection of bread and butter with dips & mackerel pate - nice touch. Also liked the 4 special special champagne cocktails on offer - highly recommend the raspberry one! We decided to share 3 starter plates between us, along with a side of french fries, and we loved our chilli squid with chorizo, scallops with homemade black pud & capers, and monkfish tempura. Plenty there to make us feel we'd had a proper meal - around £8 per dish wasn't so bad given the decent portion sizes. We paid £46 for 2 inc. 1 champagne cocktail (£8.50) and a beer.
Will definitely visit again when in Brighton. I imagine it's not a place that looks very welcoming in the daytime, given white tiled walls, white marble tables etc, but at night with candlesticks on the tables it had a welcoming ambiance and the staff were attentive and friendly. A well run restaurant for those who enjoy quality seafood. Note that they don't take reservations.

Had lunch here on my birthday. Loved the champagne and the Clam Chowder was the best outside of Boston I have had. Good service and very relaxed. Wouldn't hesitate to return when I am in Brighton next.

Thought it was good but it's more of a snack bar than a resaurant. very nice though.
