“A shabby-chic bistro with pleasant staff and interesting small plates” – fish-centric – plus “natural wines to complement the seasonal organic food”.

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

An exposed-brick indie with a winning formula of social dining based on small plates and unusual natural wines; there’s a focus on pescatarian eating and – for those who’d rather not tangle forks – also a range of mains.

“A great little independent (handy for The Lanes) that cooks up some proper tasty food” from a “really quirky” menu based on small plates and natural wines; “the guys who run the joint could not be lovelier chaps”.

“A funky (even for Brighton) menu, and a natural-wine list could ring warning bells for hipster overload” – but this “very small French bistro close to The Lanes” is a “fun spot” combining “some interesting ingredients” into “delicious” dishes; service is distinctively Gallic.
