Japanese | Brighton, Brighton

I looked at reviews before coming to Brighton for a great Japanese and this seemed to fit the bill. I popped in early at 6pm (as a solo visitor) so it wasn't particularly buzzing but only because of the timing. The staff were all really friendly and attentive, and even let me borrow their phone charger which was much appreciated! Food was really good, particularly enjoyed the crispy chicken skin and miso salmon, and was given good advice about which sake to choose.k Would definitely return! More

Birthday lunch with my wife who wanted to try ‘gourmet vegetarian’ prepared by experts, so I booked FFF. Online booking worked superbly, and although we arrived 20 minutes early were warmly welcomed and seated. The food did not disappoint, with a menu covering a wide range of dishes and was simply delicious. The wine choice - by the glass or bottle, was also excellent. We had - Crispy Tofu, Artisan breads with oils and relishes, Portobello Mushroom and Tagine mains, wines by the glass and coffees. A great lunch! We both loved the food and restaurant, and appreciated the unexpected birthday cookies treat. Service was exemplary, being friendly and attentive despite a very busy lunchtime. Well worth the time to experience excellent vegetarian cuisine. More

We have visited a number of times and always enjoyed the food. This time however it was no where near as good. We were disappointed with the bbq chicken and beef brisket on our platter. The ribs were rather fatty, But flavour was good. Pulled pork was yummy and chips were good! Side order of chilli nachos were also good. We did raise our issue with our waitress who apologised and gave us 10% off our bill. We will be back, but not for a while. More

Drinks were flowing (and the Margaritas were very good and well made). We enjoyed Burritos, Enchiladas and Fajitas - all excellently flavoured. Churros and Brownie for desert were also superb.

Quite a different sort of Indian restaurant and one I would definitely return to. Not a bog standard curry house - very interesting food and style.

Great experience. More

We ate dinner first, one evening with the off chance that my international guests could sample England's fish and chips. We instantly decided to and ate the amazing food from the menu. Italien tapas, mussels that were cooked to perfection and great beer. I had already arranged to meet some friends (10 people) there on the Sunday as well for a roast, with very high expectations, which were more than exceeded! I grew up in Brighton and it is hands down, one of the best Sunday roasts I've had. We had a 9 month old with us both times and were a large booking the 2nd both time with a large booking. More

I came here for a lovely valentines meal. The open fire was very romantic and food was good. A shame the Food was just warm but not very hot, very delicious still. We were seated in the front room which was not next to the fire and was quite cold and then moved to a table by the fire place to finish drinks which was nice a warming. Would recommend asking for a table by the fireplace on very cold days. Overall nice experience and would come back More

We are a traditional country style private members club, kitchen and beer garden. Built over 400 years ago the venue was formerly part of Olde Place Hotel which is now a residential address and from the outside, you couldn’t wish for a cuter little pub. Inside, our low ceilings, warm welcome and excellent food and drink options are a sure-fire hit.

Please note that membership is required to be able to make a booking with us. You can join at the time of your booking (before dining) and the ANNUAL cost is £35 per person or £55 for a joint.More

So much better than a chain steak house - we had calamari followed by top notch fillet steaks that were beautifully cooked and came with garlic prawns, fries, onion rings and green beans. So nothing surprising on the menu, excellent service and you get what you pay for. The rottisserie chicken is a great idea as you can dine with friends and family who don't want steak or don't eat beef. More

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.

Unfortunately the restaurant didn’t have any record of our booking when we arrived and the maitre’d was a bit offhand, but he did find us a table. It took a while before we got our requested highchair but once a waiter was assigned to our table he was absolutely lovely. The food was very good with only one exception, some profiteroles which were hard and possibly only recently thawed out. A decent family-friendly option in Brighton. More

International | Brighton, Brighton

The Devil's Dyke in Brighton is a country pub oozing rural charm and rustic character. Our picturesque surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for savouring the hearty, seasonal pub-food on our menu, and the carefully nurtured cask ales and fine wines gracing our bar.

Whether you are planning dinner with friends or Sunday lunch with family, book a table online and enjoy some quality time with those you love the most.

The pub restaurant offers an ideal spot to rest after a day exploring the Devil's Dyke Valley, from which it got its name. According to local folklore the valley is an unfinished trench which was dug by the Devil in an attempt to flood the churches of the Weald. The valley now plays host to The Dyke Golf Club and Dyke Golf Course.

Our pub is on the beautiful Downs with great views overlooking Brighton - on a clear day can see London. It takes its name from the nearby beauty spot, a valley supposedly dug by the Devil.More
