Went here for a meal on Saturday 26th Nov 2016, with four friends. This is a very small restaurant on two floors. The higher floor at street level has just a few tables , some of these tables will surprise you! The menu is not vast but has an interesting variety of mostly local sourced food. There is a good...

You won't find a more quirky, more tasty or more fun place. Jane and her wonderful team are warm, creative and charming. They go above and beyond to ensure your dining experience is happy and memorable.

We were visiting my fiances sister in Brighton and she booked us here for dinner. What an amazing place. We arrived first and she asked if we were Amanda & Chris. We were seated in the window and told we could spread out. It was Chris that noticed the message on the wall! We had prosecco as we were celebrating... More

We absolutely loved our lunch at Bom-Bane's. Jane was amazing and the best host I've ever had in a restaurant and really went the extra mile to make sure we had a great time. Lovely comfort food with nice wine. Just a perfect meal and the epitome of the uniqueness of Brighton.

We have visited this little place several times for large and small occasions. There have been small musical sessions in the basement bar that we have attended together with a lovely "special" birthday for a friend. The food and entertainment were fantastic . The tables are quirky in the ground floor area where we have been for light meals and... More

I looked for places with vegetarian options before I left for one of my regular visits from Australia and saw Bom Bane's I agree with everything others have written about it. A 'one off' - with the singing, the lifting table, etc - very well worth visiting. Interesting food. Great, all Belgian, beers. Good staff - plus Jane herself. Will... More

It was the middle of the night we found ourselves on a small dark road lost and hungry whilst looking for another restaurant, then we stumbled on this little gem.. So glad we didn't find the other place!!! This restaurant was magic! It really was a highlight of our trip. They couldn't have been more accommodating and welcoming if they... More

I absolutely loved Bom Bane's. The experience is impossible to describe - it is a fun, artistic, dream-like, unique, slightly bonkers (but in the best way!), friendly, and unforgettable. Jane, the owner, chef, host is delightful. If you go for an evening meal you might be lucky and she will sing a song. The food is delicious comfort food -... More

Wonderful, thoughtful and totally original! I hired Jane Bom-Banes recently for a private party to celebrate passing my degree and we all had the most fantastic night! A very professional and friendly service from the initial phone call (and through several other phone calls to add extra guests, sort out menus, etc) to the evening itself Jane and her team... More
