We had an exceptional meal at Edendum, enjoying traditional and innovative culinary delights centred around Italian cuisine. We started with complimentary sourbread rolls made from a dough that originated 30 years ago! Our shared Gnocco Fritto misto was generous and the swordfish pies had a delightful delicate flavour. We all agreed that Edendum was a real find and we were surprised that the restaurant was quiet (albeit on a Thursday evening). We would like to thank the staff for being so welcoming and the chef for his delicious creations. The ambience was perfect for a reunion of friends and we will certainly return to Edendum Brighton.

Good service but limited menu and lacking in atmosphere as not very busy. This may have been due to the bad weather but other places we tried were fully booked and it was a Saturday night.

The recommendations on social media made me choose this italian restaurant during our visit to Brighton, unfortunately it was very disappointing apart from the attentive and polite staff.
The food dreadful. My seafood pasta was worse than a ready meal, rubbery squid and tasteless tomato sauce. My partners pizza was burnt, bland and dry. We were starving, but left half the meal.
The seating area is very odd, our table was in front of the door so I had a cold breeze up my back all night.
We were glad to get out of there.

New restaurant and this was our first visit. Quiet when we arrived, service was good. Great place for people watching. Food was only 'alright'. Once more people arrived, we felt forgotten. Disappointing. Wouldn't go back.

Due to unforeseen circumstances we could not make our original booking slot yet they still managed to fit us in 30 mins later on what was a very busy weekend (marathon weekend) Food quality and staff were fantastic and very reasonably priced. I would definitley visit again

Wow! Amazing food with excellent friendly service; what a gem!

The menu has a few dishes under each heading as, from experience, they do a few things brilliantly rather than lots badly. Top notch ingredients meant our dishes were bursting with flavour and looked as good as they tasted. Every course was a delight.

Great staff who care about service was fantastic too. Go! It's great!

In the foodiest street in Brighton, which offers some competition, Edendum offers authentic, uncomplicated Italian cooking with friendly, hospitable service in unfussy surroundings. The homemade gnocchi are exceptionally good and the roast vegetables are delicious. As you would expect from the location, fish is also good. There are meaty things but we didn't eat them this time. Wine ranges across Italy and is fairly priced. What's not to like?

Amazing food, including quite the most tender and flavousome steak with sauté spinach. Arrived and the restaurant was quiet, mind it was early and a wed night but the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Great service and genuine interest in our stay in Brighton. Swift but not rushed, we opted for 2 courses with a nice red wine to compliment. I'd advise anyone who likes very good food and a nice setting to give edendum a visit.

Sadly I was disappointed with Edendum. My daughter and I had a sharing platter for starters and it was a very small portion for two to share. The main courses were nice enough but my duck didn't come with potatoes and both meals were over-priced

Edendum offers everything from breakfast to pizza (tasty thin crust) and pasta (outstanding gnocchi) to something more serious, all executed with flair and a willingness to accommodate customers' tastes. There's a good wine list too; and a shelf of Italian specialities. The staff are committed and totally charming. For a relaxed, informal meal, I can't think of anywhere better in Brighton.

Really enjoyed this meal with friends. All the staff were friendly and attentive, the menu was great with some good veggie choices, and some unusual dishes we hadn't seen before. The fried pizza dough was one: like savory doughnuts, not a diet choice, but great for sharing. Nice wines, though I'd say the pricing of those is slightly high. Overall, an experience we all enjoyed, will come again.
