Six of us went to Blenio Bistro on Saturday: good food and very good service. Not cheap but good value (we got through a lot of wine and the cost per head inc service was £45). Quite close to the No, 7 bus route.

The pub was being refurbed and the kitchen not open so it was up the road to Blenios for the four of us. Testing all of the plants on the way - they were not real but pretty good fakes! The art-work of local Brighton...More

I've been to Blenio twice in the last couple of weeks, and each time I have visited I have been impressed by the warm, attentive service staff, and the welcoming atmosphere of the dining room - the lights have been dimmed, but not so much...More

Blenio Bistro is the first Brighton-based venture from award-winning restaurateurs Peter Bruschi and Paula Black, and this all-day bistro brings a breath of fresh air to the city’s iconic Seven Dials neighbourhood. The all-white, light-filled restaurant is decorated with bright splashes of colour and artworks by local artists, and Blenio’s menu is filled with rustic European dishes with a French twist. Perfect for business breakfasts, lazy lunches, coffee-and-cake breaks and stylish evening meals, this hip eatery attracts a trendy local crowd and we love everything from the traditional Sunday roasts and signature moules mariniere to the selection of croissants, muffins and pastries for brunch.
