Fish & Seafood Restaurants in Brighton
1. The Salt Room Fish & seafood restaurant in Brighton 106 Kings Road - BN1
“It's all about the fish” (“amazing” albeit “very expensive”) at this “great seafood brasserie in a lovely location on Brighton seafront” – although they also turn out “brilliant quality steaks” (with “sharing plates for two – fish or meat – a particular feature”). The venue elicits reams of feedback – amongst the highest quantity of any venue in town – all highly positive.
2. Riddle & Finns On The Beach Fish & seafood restaurant in Brighton 65 Kings Road - BN1
An “excellent location (under the arches on Brighton beach) to soak up the sun on the terrace or watch it set from a window seat on the first floor” – this offshoot of the well-known Lanes oyster bar makes for the “perfect end to a day at the seaside”, not least thanks to its “amazingly fresh” fish and seafood.
3. Little Fish Market Fish & seafood restaurant in Brighton 10 Upper Market St - BN3
“Just off the front in a charming maze of streets in Hove”, Duncan Ray’s small 20-seater is “a cute spot with no fine dining trappings to make you feel awkward”. He is at the stoves alone, creating an ever-changing five-course menu of sustainable seafood: “just gorgeous fish cookery from raw to grilled – not hugely fancy, just brilliantly conceived and executed”.
4. English’s Fish & seafood restaurant in Brighton 29-31 East St - BN1
One of England’s oldest restaurants: the Leigh-Jones family’s seafood period-piece, in the Lanes – run by the clan since 1945, but established in the 1890s – has a “huge number of things to recommend”, not least its “lovely fresh local oysters and mussels” and an outside terrace for sunny days.
5. Riddle & Finns British, Modern restaurant in Brighton 12b Meeting House Ln - BN1
“Overall just a fantastic experience” – a Lanes oyster bar, with a spinoff on the promenade (“both are very popular”), which wins numerous raves for “the most amazing seafood”, combined with “brilliant” service and a pleasingly “informal” set-up (communal tables) whereby “you might easily find yourself sharing a tall table with strangers”.
6. Murmur British, Modern restaurant in Brighton 91-96 Kings Road Arches - BN1
“Within a hop, skip and jump of the i360”, but with a “great setting right on the seafront” (and al fresco seating), this “casual, laidback” venture turns out “excellent seasonal produce” (predominantly fish) from a “small but perfectly formed menu”. Owner “Michael Bremner deserves to be as successful with Murmur as he has been with 64 Degrees”.
7. Urchin Fish & seafood restaurant in Brighton 15-17 Belfast St - BN3
“Fabulous, reasonably priced seafood” is the focus at this smart corner gastroboozer with stripped wooden floors. A “great range of beers” (some brewed on-site) complements “always innovative shellfish dishes and specials”.
8. The Regency Restaurant Fish & seafood restaurant in Brighton 131 Kings Rd - BN1
With its “basic, unpretentious interior and bustle”, this “traditional chippie in a seafront setting” serves “still probably the best fish ’n’ chips in town” of the conventional, un-gastro variety. Both hot and cold seafood come on “exceptionally large platters”, and “it’s the perfect place for a Sunday lunch on a stormy day looking out over the Channel”.
