* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

A “lovely, bustling and buzzy little bistro that serves up generously sized plates” at “great value” prices in the Brighton backstreets; there are “great French standards on the menu and then great specials on the blackboard” too.

"Tremendous value and stunning food. We had a lovely family meal here and I’d highly recommend it. The staff were a delight, matching the food and the place had a real buzz to it. The wine is quite pricey but this is easily offset by the amazing value for money provided by the food. Brighton has many great restaurants, this is definitely up there with the best of them!"
