Found in the heart of the Brighton Lanes and run by the charismatic Brighton restaurateur, Coco Cowan, D’Arcys is one of Brighton’s premiere seafood restaurants – though we always have a little steak for those who prefer it and will happily create something vegetarian
‘off-menu’ if requested.

Originally a fisherman’s cottage, D’Arcys has been a specialist seafood restaurant for more than 50 years. We’ve retained a traditional decorative style which helps create an intimate and comfortable atmosphere whether you’re having a simple one-course lunch or a three-course dinner. When the weather is good we also have tables outside for eating alfresco.

We pride ourselves on using the best local fresh fish where possible. Besides our regular favourites such as Fish Pie our menu changes daily depending on the best of the catch from our suppliers. We also source the best, freshest locally grown produce and ingredients to use with and in our cooking.

The dinner was amazing because of the quality of the food ( Dover Sole, sea bass and lamb) and lovely atmosphere with friendly service.

Nice home cooked food, good portions and the set menu is great value. Decor and toilets could do with updating.

Charming little place in a lovely peaceful and historic location. The service and food surpassed our expectations. I just wish we were able to stay longer in Brighton to experience another delicious meal at Darcys.

Staff were lovely. Restaurant is warm and cosy. Food was great. We each had 1 large whole fresh fish. They made an effort as it was my birthday as well. Would recommend.

Really helpful and friendly. Accommodated my last minute change of time with no issues and great service. I had the cod and chips and the bread basket and it was really delicious - I think the breadcrumbs rather than better made all the difference

The menu offers sufficient options without swamping you with unnecessary choice. We had three courses and all were extremely good. I asked for a recommendation for the main course and had the sea bream as suggested, which was excellent. The portions are good without being overly-large and all the dishes were well priced, including the sides. We were happy with the wine list too.

Quite busy and due to size of building a bit cramped. But service was very good. We had Dover Sole which was average size but was well cooked. Vegetables we found over cooked and courgette was not as described on menu. Apart from that all ok.

A very cosy place, made especially welcome by Jerry.
First time I’d had fish & chips using bread-crumbs ... which was superb.
Nice house wine too!
Thoroughly recommended. SR

This is a lovely little restaurant tucked away in the Lanes in Brighton. The food is properly home cooked and the service is genuinely heartfelt. It’s the kind of place in which you immediately feel at home.
