Great service [Ellis was wonderful] and amazing food. Only critique is the dark decor. Everything is black so not the nicest atmosphere but over all great restaurant can’t not wait to go again.

Lovely decor, interesting mix of music, great cocktails. The restaurant has a great buzzy atmosphere and the serving staff are friendly. Only complaint is that I asked for a burger without the bun, as I wouldn't be eating it as I'm on a low carb plan, the waitress returned from the kitchen to tell me that they weren't prepared to served the burger without a bun. I was a bit taken aback by this as I thought I was doing them a favour, so that they wouldn't waste the bun, as we're all trying to do our bit to reduce food waste. There wasn't an explanation as to why they couldn't accommodate my request, and so I was left a bit confused really, and made to feel like I'd made a ludicrous request. It's unfortunate, as the food was really tasty, and it was our first visit, but that left a bad impression so we probably won't be returning.

Food and drinks were great, cost ok, incredibly loud in the restaurant, could do with a bit of sound proofing or softening.

Fabulous meal out for my husbands birthday! The pork belly and steaks we had were unreal, cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. The only downside is the price tag that comes with it but the food is delicious. Will definitely be our go to special event restaurant now though.

Nice food, good service. Could have done with a bit more to choose from in starters and mains

Difficult to understand menu. Couldn't tell where the starters began and finished and where the mains started. All extras like chips etc had to be added.

Superb. Very lively in there the night we were there though, but I think that was mainly because of a large table who were a bit excited!
Food, drinks, service etc was second to none. Soooo good.

Ate here on Friday evening , the music was very loud , it was hard to sit and have an actual conversation because you had to shout to one another which isn’t practical for a sit down meal.
Also didn’t like the fact there was a dog in the restaurant in the evening , which staff were touching and then not washing their hands afterwards. The dog was let go at one stage and roaming about under the table , I just don’t think it’s good hygiene standards in a restaurant.
Overall food was great .

Food was really yummy, defo worth the wait, was told we should order between 5-6 dishes for 2 but they were quite big, 4 would have been enough, meat was incredible- cocktails looked pretty but not very strong, so would opt for beer or wine. Would recommend for yummy food.

Great place in Worthing and very happy it is here. Has a London or Brighton feel to it. Great food and cocktails. Staff were lovely, friendly and attentive. We chose a mix of their small plates but be careful, as they are bigger than expected and we over ordered even though warned by our waitress. 4 plates is ideal to save yourself for desert. The steaks are supposed to be very good, although we didn't opt for them this time. Price wise the steaks are similar to those in Gaucho's London I would say, so they would have to be good.

All in all a great place to go with friends, groups or couples. We will be back.
