Featured Eastbourne Restaurants
1. The Mirabelle, The Grand Hotel British, Modern restaurant in Eastbourne King Edwards Parade - BN21
This 30-year veteran “hidden in the corner” of a grand seaside hotel is very much one for the traditionalists and has hitherto occupied “its own little time warp” – an approach fans see as “perfection” (but which could also seem plain dated). Change is afoot though, following the September 2017 installation of Stephanie Malvoisin to lead the kitchen, and some diehard disciples feel things could go either way: “the jury is still out on the new chef, and a potentially disastrous refurbishment (if modern influences are permitted) mean this great bastion is in greater peril than it has been for decades. I fear very greatly that modernisation may bring with it mediocrity. Cut crystal and the signature china have already sadly been downgraded to more modest standard replacements. Getting rid of the salvers, and particularly the silver cloches is also deleterious to the sense of occasion. Some things are better left as they are: the Mirabelle being a prime example!”
2. Wish Tower Restaurant French restaurant in Eastbourne Wish Tower, South Downs Way - BN21
A £2m government-funded scheme to regenerate Eastbourne's shorefront after fire devastated its 146-year-old pier will include a £1.2m restaurant housed within the town's Wish Tower. Rick Stein's company was at one point rumoured to be favourite to head up the new venture, however a petition to award the restaurant contract to a local caterer was launched in July 2016.
