Terrible Sunday roast. Most people in the restaurant looked as appalled with the food as well. Waitress did her best but seemed ashamed of what was coming out of the kitchen

Great food, nice place. Service was a little muddled at times but I think that may have been because there was an obviously very new member of staff. Everyone was very friendly though.
Would I go back? Definitely.

First impressions were that this was a rather disorganised establishment. Made a booking but they didn’t seem to want to know and we were allocated a table as though we were chance customers. 10 minutes in to being seated and we were still awaiting menus. Eye contact was difficult with staff on duty but eventually we were able to get the teams attention and begin our evening. After our first initial experience things began to pick up and the team showed great knowledge when it came to my partners dietary requirements.

Food combinations were good, great balance, combination and textures. Some interesting combinations.

Drinks were good though our orders were hit and miss in terms of delivery. By that I mean we ordered but drinks seemed to be misplaced and had to be requested again. Perhaps inexperience during these difficult times and lack of hospitality staff. However wasn’t the end of the world.

In all, lovely setting for our first meal in Brighton. Food was certainly the standout of the whole experience. Would highly recommend.

First time out for dinner during/after pandemic and was great, staff had lots going on but were so lovely, great friendly service from everyone. Food came quick and was really good. Cocktails really nice too. Waited for one drink but I mean Saturday night that’s to be expected so not a complaint just saying if that’s the worst thing it’s all good in my opinion! They couldn’t have been nicer, food & drink lovely so that to me equals a great place.

Amazing food. A little cold in the restaurant as all the doors were open. We had an issue with missing food which the staff rectified but on reflection, we could have been better compensated due to the lengthy wait of our meal.

Had a bit of a friction with the server who told us that we weren’t able to take the service charge off the bill. Then I showed him the menu where it says that it’s discretionary.
I only wanted to pay in cash and less than the 12.5% because the wait for food was over an hour.

The food was really lovely. We had to move tables as the heater was broken. Took a while for the server to take our drinks order and they were out of a number of starters. The food made up for any niggles though. The restaurant and outside decking area are really nice.

The location and atmosphere is excellent, and the food was good. The reason why I’m rating this place 3 stars is because the service was fairly poor and the waiter was being immensely rude to us despite the fact that me we’ve spent a lot of time and money there.

I booked a table on a Saturday afternoon for lunch for me and my partner. We ordered a bottle of wine & pint of beer, the wine was £27 a bottle ! 2 starters - the scallops & pig cheek both very small portions for the price so we were really looking forward to our mains. The starters tasted like they were missing something. We both ordered the prawns for our main dish quite pricey £16 each but we thought we haven’t done this in a while so let’s treat ourselves. When it arrived me and my partner both looked at each other in shock. On our plates were 5 prawns on a stick with heads and tails still on, a wedge of lemon, pot of mayonnaise & a slice of bread. My partners was toasted mine wasn’t. I mean for £16 this was horrendous. It was a starter portion. The prawns tasted like they had come out of the ground not the sea. They had a earthy taste. Yuck. We both left the restaurant £106 down & still hungry!
I wouldn’t recommend this place at all ! There are a lot more nicer, cheaper places to eat in hove. Don’t bother ! Don’t waste your money.

The food was a bit overpriced for what it was. Ladies toilets were vile. Service was good until I mentioned I had a a wine glass that looked like it had been cleaned with tissue when paying the bill (just so no other customers got the same thing, but personally I wasn’t too fussed and cleaned it myself). Rather than an apology I got a response that no one else had complained and the glasses were always polished.

Arrived at restaurant and there was no table available having booked and stating there were tables on the app, was advised to try another restaurant which was more a cafe bar but that wasn’t even open. We did end up having a great night at the nearby newly reopened Ortello.

We had a lovely Christmas Eve meal - the food was delicious and service great. The only negative I have was that at least 4 main dishes weren’t available, including 2 out of 3 vegetarian options so there wasn’t much choice for me. Otherwise it was a beautiful spot to eat and we hope to return soon.

Food is generally good here but 2 of us felt monkfish portions too small. The main problem with this venue is always overly slow, casual service.

Lovely dining area, menu sufficient and not too overwhelming. Service very friendly by quite slow. Starter and main served together? Asked for them to be served separately. Had to remind waitress about the jug of water. I would go there again though.

A very enjoyable brunch experience and we will definitely return because the atmosphere was chilled and sophisticated.
Slight niggles were the drinks took far too long to arrive and the menu is a bit limited for brunch, it is more like a proper lunch menu instead.
Not sure if we will try the place for dinner or not.
