“All the hype is true!” – “fabulous food is served with a smile in uncomplicated surroundings” and it can be “a revelation (the simpler it sounded, the better it tasted!)” at Michael Bremner’s “real Brighton star” in the Lanes, which “serves tapas-size dishes prepared in front of you in the open kitchen” (some fans prefer to sit up at the counter). “It’s not often you go to a place that’s truly doing things a bit differently and enjoying it so much” – “it’s actually just a shame that it isn’t larger!”
“A mecca for Brighton foodies” – Michael Bremner’s “really splendid, inventive and deeply flavour-packed small-plate cooking” goes from strength to strength at his Lanes two-year-old (“try to sit at the counter and watch the chefs prepare an interesting array of goodies”). “But it’s SO DAMN NOISY; when your food is this good, you don’t need to crank up the volume guys!”
“Exciting small sharing plates” with “superb flavours and combinations” inspire armies of local fans for this Lanes yearling. Results can be “hit-and-miss” though, and even fans can find it “cramped and uncomfortable” (and also “loud” – “I could have done without the Iron Maiden blaring out!”)
Largely positive feedback so far on this “trendy” Lanes newcomer with an “open kitchen and stool-type seating”, which offers some “exciting and innovative” small plates (including a “slightly cooked house egg”); the odd critic, though, simply “can't understand the fuss”.
64 Degrees Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Delicious once again. I know the setting isn't for everyone but it really is Brighton's most adventurous restaurant by some way."
"I'm sure it gets better every time. Great combinations in sharing plate form, these are often classic - fettuccini with egg yolk and truffle was my favourite - but the flavours are always amazing. Delicious Italian white pinot. Can't wait to go back."
