Nice romantic, cosy restaurant with excellent service. Been many times over the years. Have always loved it and will continue to visit but feel that although the food is excellent, and cannot really be faulted, it has lost its "wow, what is this? The combination of ingredients is so clever" factor that it had about three years ago. Having said... More

Visited this restaurant during a trip to Brighton as the reviews were so positive and the menu looked exciting. The venue is cosy but smallish (20/25 covers), perfect lighting and atmosphere. Service very efficient without being intrusive. Now, the food: à la carte menu, 2 or 3 course at a fixed price with 5 choices per course. They bring complimentary... More

We really did enjoy every aspect of our meal. It's a cosy place with very flavoursome, melt in the mouth food.

We had a lovely time dining in this restaurant. Service was friendly yet professional, the atmosphere was great- a restaurant full of happy diners and the food was amazing. We had some lovely warm bread with different butters and appetizers first which is always a nice treat before the meal begins. Then we had delicious food from start to finish,... More

I do not visit Brighton frequently but was there to celebrate New Years Eve and needed somewhere to dine on the 30th. I knew nothing of the Gingerman other than the information available on various websites. I booked some weeks prior and was so glad that I had as the restaurant was completely full and casual callers were unable to... More

Loved the decor, the service and the food except both of us and then the nextctanke had to send back our cod main as it was raw. But the rest of the meal was really good.

Dear Gingerman It has been sometime since I last dined at your establishment. A number of years in truth. To sum up our five course meal with wine flight...."perfection". Thoroughly enjoyed every element, a beautiful taste sensation in every course. One of them being venison, a meat I would not normally choose. But as this was a set menu, I... More

We managed to get a late booking which started at 7pm, so had great service from the start. Every course was expertly cooked and presented, with olives, aperitifs, bread and starters before the main course there was no chance of going hungry. I had the celeriac starter, Cod main and mandarin soufflé, which were all top class. Unfortunately the soufflé... More

Myself and my partner attended for our joint birthday treat and we weren't disappointed. Lovely welcome and service from start to finish, I notice the staff make a real point of speaking to everyone and really making you feel special. The food was nicely presented but I enjoyed it so much I'd eaten most of it before I thought to... More

It's been a very long time since I ate at this restaurant, but I know all it's sister establishments very well and in general terms am a huge fan. The Gingerman did not disappoint, a lovely set-up with great dining chairs and just the right lighting. I liked the menus, and since we over are at Xmas the super salad... More
