Featured Eastbourne Restaurants
1. The Mirabelle, The Grand Hotel British, Modern restaurant in Eastbourne King Edwards Parade - BN21
A reminder of a more gilded age! this grand hotel-restaurant has long been a haven of old-school values, not least its charming service. Some doubts crept in this year however, and though it still wins many endorsements for its superb cuisine and extensive wine list it also took flak for some bland meals, or for seeming too old fashioned and stuffy generally.
2. Zizzi Italian restaurant in Eastbourne 3-5 Bolton Road - BN21
2015 Review: Unexceptional and unsophisticated it undoubtedly is, but this pleasant kid-friendly pizza-n-pasta chain is still generally rated a useful, if unspectacular, standby.
3. PizzaExpress Pizza restaurant in Eastbourne 24 Cornfield Road - BN21
For the first 20 years of this guide, this famous pizza chain with its surprisingly distinctive branches was with tedious regularity the surveys most mentioned group: constantly re-inventing itself to remain everyones favourite standby, especially with kids in tow. Competition is sharper nowadays however, and since its ownership changed a couple of years ago (to Hony Capital) ratings and the volume of feedback have slipped well below their historical average. Yes, it is still much-mentioned, and still as reliable as ever to armies of loyal supporters, but harsher critics are stunned by the complacency and staleness of the brand: even the ubiquitous, good value voucher deals are starting to lose their shine.
4. Wish Tower Restaurant restaurant in Eastbourne Wish Tower, South Downs Way - BN21
A £2m government-funded scheme to regenerate Eastbournes shorefront after fire devastated its 146-year-old pier includes this £1.2m restaurant housed within the towns Wish Tower set to open spring 2018. Rick Steins company was at one point rumoured to be favourite to head up the new venture, however the plum site will in fact house an outpost of French bistro chain Bistrot Pierre.
