Small restaurant , clean and attentive service
Menu well priced and enjoyable
Fish and chips were plentiful and my husband had the liver and bacon with colcannon he said it was tasty
The fact it isn’t too big a restaurant and we weren’t on top of other guests made for a pleasant dinner

We went as a family as a celebration to a forthcoming wedding. The restaurant did not disappoint. The food choices were excellent and cooked well, and excellent value for money. The service was very friendly, congratulating the groom to be as we left. If you are in this area of Brighton a visit to this lovely restaurant will not disappoint.

Had pleasure of trying il bistro with friends for first time on 15/12 had found it a good experience in terms of ambience, friendly staff and good quality dishes, in particular I had a minor query regarding a desert (no cherries) and Abe was excellent in removing the cost of that dish from the final bill, how many times in a restaurant do you get pro-active response prior to the bill let alone after. Overall our party was impressed and we go to a fair number of restaurants in and around Brighton. Definitely will return.

So many restaurants in Brighton, it’s easy to go to one on the numerous chain restaurants. Delighted to call into this gem for a excellent lunch . Friendly and efficient waitress, good choice and great food . My wife’s chicken and goats cheese salad both plentiful and tasty. As I was at the seaside fish and chips were necessary. Fresh , light and generous portion . Very reasonable set menu of either 2/4 courses.
I shall return !
