The Copper Clam
We have a private dining area and cater for large groups and parties.
These guys were brilliant. The food was fantastic and the service the best we have had in a long time.
Creative dishes, definitely not the usual seafood restaurant. The fish was excellent and so was the presentation. Great location and view.
No food available although we weren’t told until after we’d ordered drinks
No skate, no cod, no fish at all
No lobster, no clams, no crab, no oysters, no shellfish at all
Great food view and service
Great food and very friendly service. Thoroughly recommended.
Super friendly staff, delicious food and great atmosphere. Located on the seafront. Will be back.
Overall, very good service, food and quality. It’s in a great space and has very good pairings of wine and food.
Door held open upon arrival by the owners.
Very very warm welcome given by waiting staff and owners, shown to tables allowed to choose which they even cleaned one especially in the corner for us.
Then had a little chat with waitress owner, We were choosing a mid range wine but were recommended A lower priced one. And she was spot on. The Verdejo was delicious!
Menus where brought, everything on there sounded amazing.
We chose a few starters to share, scallops and squid, both of them superb; and few mains with sprouts and the crab fries to die for.
Mussels were fantastic and the sauce was amazing
Overall a fabulous meal. The oysters, squid and octopus main were outstanding. The soufflé was very disappointing- surprised the chef let it leave the kitchen - it was flat!
As always, a very enjoyable meal. Very friendly staff, beautiful sea view and delicious food
Great family run restaurant. Well worth a visit, highly recommended
Excellent food and service! 👏👌I would definitely recommend it.
Really good from moment walking through the door service spot on and food to match
Our second visit, this time with teenagers in tow. Though we were a little put-off by the lack of masks amongst the waiting staff, the sheer lack of people (sadly the times) meant a very quite restaurant and lack of ambience. The food (that's why we were there) was really good - trio of smoked salmon and mussels in particular. Decent wine list including by the glass.
Another excellent experience at the Copper Clam. Pre Christmas family meal. Always great service. Extensive fish and seafood dominated menu. We had skate, cod and shellfish platters. All of which were excellent. We love the Copper Clam. It's such a pretty restaurant also with great views over the sea. Looking forward to our next visit.
Wonderful staff and the food was amazing. On the beach front. We went to Riddle and Fins in the lanes the day which is highly rated after wards thought the Copper Clam was actually better food and the staff were lovely and so welcoming. Highly recommend. Steak tartare, washing oysters, octopus and modules mariniere were delicious
Went on a rainy night just before Christmas.
Terrible Christmas playlist playing
While the food was good the cost was what you'd expect to pay for superb food
The food was very tasty, the service was great. Really enjoyed our meal - great oysters!
Pre-ordered the set Christmas menu - very disappointing. Cold sauce, tasteless terrine, dry fish, reheated potatoes - not good. End of cheese (all rind) served on cheese board. Lots of food was left but no concern as to why. Seafood platter was ok. Drinks order was wrong & took ages to correct, no follow up offer of more drinks. No acknowledgement of birthday celebrations. Wanted to love it but sadly didn't.
Small but quirky restaurant with really inventive food and delicious meals. Warm and pleasant atmosphere.
All the staff were friendly and the service was excellent. The food was beautifully cooked and presented - cannot recommend the cataplana highly enough! And the sides of vegetables were superb.
Will definitely visit again next time we are in Brighton.
Absolutely love this restaurant, we've been several times now and it's a go-to when friends come to visit. The food is beautiful, the staff are lovely and the views are great (as is the wine list). Can't recommend this place enough.....and I can't stop thinking about their crab fries!
Picked this restaurant at random as wanted to go somewhere new. My friend and I were delighted at the food, which was definitely a notch above our usual restaurant choices. The restaurant itself is lovely with beach and pier views but, I suspect due to Covid 19, it was fairly quiet. A shame as I would recommend it for sure.
Awesome place. Loved it. Great service and amazing seafood.
The food was lovely but when we arrived (which was first sitting) they were not ready for guests. Stood for ages in the door way for a table to be ready in an empty restaurant at 5pm.
Service was ok to start but our mains took 40 minutes after starter. Not offered any deserts after plates cleared and had to find someone to pay and leave.
Good food. Service could have been a lot better. Considering the food price point was a bit disappointed.
being along the beach, this place is all about the location and view
Food and service were all good
Lovely place, great food, superb wine!! Really nice atmosphere
Great little seaside spot for a romantic dinner or catchup with friends. Spanking fresh seafood and fish, friendly service and relaxed atmosphere. We had oysters (tempura and Rockefeller), seared scallops and grilled tiger prawns, cod fillet and the Catalans stew was amazing. And a baked Alaska to share, everything was delicious, just the sauce of the prawn dish was overly hot/spicy. The lights were a bit too bright but they dimmed them as soon as we asked and lit candles. Right on the beach, great wine selection too I’d definitely go back.
Very quiet on the beach. The food took a really long time to come out. Very expensive for what it is.
We booked for a special occasion with the intent to have fresh lobster. After we sat down, they explained there was no lobster brought in that day. We left very disappointed and were made to feel it was our fault for not ordering the lobster at time of the reservation so they could prepare.
Greeted by a very rude man who told me that he didn’t reserve good tables for open table and because I had chosen standard seating (which I assumed was inside as the only other option was outside) I had to sit outside or share a table with someone else. He was in no way apologetic or helpful when we said we were happy to wait for a table of 2 inside so we didn’t actually eat here I can’t comment on the food but the menu looked great hence why I booked it I will think really hard if I ever want to book here again as the restaurant next door was amazing
Staff very friendly and helpful, our starters were excellent as was one of the main courses, unfortunately the other was cold and took too long to be replaced. Lovely atmosphere and decor, we would try again next time in Brighton
We went out for a date night the first time, i think in 3 years. The Service was incredible friendly and we even got offered a fabulous seat with view to the sea. The food was out standing and all in all a fantastic night, could not be happier. Thank you copper clam team
all very good food, fresh fish and excellent meat! excellent choice of wines! recommend it
Perfect steak outside, charmingly haphazard service, bit pricy, but will go again for another perfect steak.
Very disappointed, food not great, service really bad (staff arguing in front of everyone). Really over priced and felt cheated for what we had. Sad times
Amazing food and location, well worth the visit if you’re Brighton. Service was outstanding.
Great food. Very tasty. Beautifully presented. Knowledgeable staff. Overall, a lovely evening.
Really enjoyable evening, friendly staff and delicious food. Lovely spot to dine on the sea front.
Amazing food. Best mussels I’ve had. Great view too.
