Great service & exceptional food. The beef short rib with bone marrow mash & truffle cabbage was insanely tasty & I recommend the coconut espresso martinis’
Amazing everything, from sitting down to leaving. Food was gorgeous, everything was cooked to perfection. A stunning Nero d’Avola to accompany and the soundtrack was mellow but uplifting. A special mention to the waiter and behind the scenes team, well choreographed and always with a smile. Will definitely be back, made our break in Brighton very special....
Had an absolutely wonderful meal here. The staff were super friendly and helpful, the food was amazing, and overall it was a brilliant experience. Well worth the money. Definitely be visiting again.
Food was great. Went for our Anniversary a we were visiting Brighton. Wife had the lamb and I had beef, both were excellent. They also brought us a small surprise for the occasion. Wine selection was also very good. Highly recommend.
The food was excellent. We had the Short rib of beef between us with hispy cabbage and potatoes and it was all divine. Unfortunately, with the exception of the lovely lady who actually served us the food, the staff seem to be mute. We were seated in silence, and the waiter struggled to do more than answer any questions in as few words as possible, if at all. We weren’t even asked if we would like dessert - the menus were just thrust in our face in passing. Such a shame as the restaurant is lovely and with such good food but bad service, or in this case, none at all, for me it just ruins the experience.
Great food and service. Thoroughly recommend the Tiger Prawns to start and the Fillet Steak.
Excellent even had a waiter that sounded like Gino De Campo.
Would definetly recomend this place.
Great steak, attentive staff, seated upstairs which was quieter, everything is charged as extra, even the sauce! 12.5% service charge is steep for just 2 people, I’d expect this for a group. I’d Definitely return but probably for a special ocassion only.
Equivalent food. Absolutely loved it. Will definitely be back.
A great restaurant with very good food and service was also very efficient and friendly. Cannot fault it at all, well done.
The service was good the food very good but the wine was overpriced and poor quality. I expect a restraunt which is mid to upper price range to have a decent house wine. I tried the the two least expensive wines neither of which were good. If you didn’t drink wine I would recommend it but it has put me off going back - I drink red and my friend white and it was the same with both. What a pity when the quality of the food was good I appreciate that things are very tough for Restraunts right now, they ask for a deposit which is fine as it is a disgrace how many people just don’t turn up but having bad wine is not the way to go for repeat business.
As always fabulous and delicious. Missed it during lockdown but was pleased with their take away dishes which were lovely - but wish I had a coal BBQ to cook the steaks on.
Highly recommend. Amazing food, wine and staff.. we’ve been before and we’ll definitely be going again!
Excellent food and great service. Highly recommend.
Delicious steaks and excellent service! Who could ask for more?
Fantastic meal for my husband's birthday. One of the best meals we've had in brighton. For starter I had the tiger prawns and husband had the pork belly - both were delicious!! And then we both had very tasty medium rare sirloin steaks. Husband can be hard to please and he was really impressed! Excellent professional but friendly service and lovely ambience with just the right level of music to create an atmosphere but not overpowering. And all COVID measures properly followed. Would love to come back for another special meal!
What a find!!! Incredible food and amazing service. Wouk defo recommend!
Worth its value and mouth watering food with great service!
The restaurant itself was a bit dark and gloomy. The food was excellent but we just felt it was a bit overpriced for what it actually was. I'm ok with paying £28 for a steak but when I then have to fork out for potatoes and veg separately I get a little miffed.
We had the Roast Beef some bits were a bit tough and reheated potato’s bit dry. Vegetables were good and plenty of food for two of us. Overall very tasty. Service was great as was the wine.
A fantastic roast, the beef was perfect. I will definitely return
Sunday roast is our usuall, superb, staff always so attentive and friendly, always a great vibe and a massive plus...if there is only 2 of you, you are seated not too close to anyone else.
First time for Sunday roast and it didn’t disappoint.
Only minor issues which wouldn’t stop us going back food could’ve been hotter. And could’ve make gluten free Yorkshire’s for our gluten free guest.
Great food and excellent service.
Very attentive and friendly staff.
Excellent wine list.
I would recommend for amy special occasion.
Wonderful and helpful and friendly staff. Despite dealing with Covid-19 etc . Had a fantastic evening.
Amazing food, and a brilliant team running the show. We will be back.
The service was excellent as well as the food! Great experience!
Amazing service and food, by far the best meal
I have eaten for a while. The churros, fish tacos and ricotta and peach dish were outstanding.
Great Evening with delicious food!!!
Cocktails were great as well as the filet steaks, would definitely recommend and re visit in when in Brighton again. Very good value for money.
Special shout out to Claire and all the ladies that looked after us :)
We had an amazing meal! Staff were so friendly and lovely to chat too, great recommendations! We had the beef short rib to share and it was great value and one of the best meals I’ve had in Brighton!
We sampled the OctoberBEST menu on Thursday, which was absolutely fantastic. Great value for money and the food was outstanding. Very pleasant staff too.
Fantastic dinner to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. The service was very attentive and tables were well spaced out given the circumstances. Most importantly the food was incredible, compliments to the chef indeed for our steaks!
Fantastic food and service was great, I definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who haven’t been there yet.
Awesome as ever . Safe environment and beautiful food !!
Unreal. Best steak I have ever tasted in my life. Staff were super friendly and they were able to give good recommendations on wine which was helpful :) 10/10 brilliant birthday meal would recommend very highly!
The food was very nice and was cooked excellently. The staff were kind and attentive and the atmosphere was very cosy. Ideal for a dinner date. The only issue was that I wish it wasn’t so expensive.
Lovely roast and setup. Generous wine list to ho with it. We will book back.
We had the excellent beef Sunday roast.
I've given only 4 stars for food and value just because the portions aren't terribly generous for £20 per head.
Superb Sunday lunch, especially the starters of fish tacos and prawn/ octopus. Nice touch w local sparkling wine - Goring Blanc de Blanc. Will visit again.
Waiter v good, attentive but not intrusive.
