Where is the Michelin star? Fabulous. Best set menu I have had in a long time. Absolutely fresh, unique combinations of flavors, wonderful use of seasoning, sauces and supporting ingredients. Tranquil, unhurried and the right atmosphere to savor the chef’s creations. Price is up there - but a stand-out restaurant in to so-so Brighton scene. Recommended for gastrophiles.

The food is amazing; service extremely friendly and personalised. Beware that the menu is a tasting fixed menu. That is, you will be served five courses from the menu of the day, no choice. All fish, so not ideal for vegetarians. Not on the cheap side, but great for a nice treat. There are not many tables and it's quite popular. So if you want to book during the weekend, you need to book about 3 months in advance (at least in summer).

The best, set meal, but we had some special requirements. Wonderful interaction with the owner chef to accommodate our requirements. Six courses with selective wines all a good match. Every course cooked to perfection. Enough time between courses to enjoy the wine and conversation . The smooth running of the restaurant is due to a young man who was both considerate and knowledgable.
A memorable meal and evening,we must return as soon as possible.

We have been waiting to try this restaurant in Hove for ages. It only has 24 covers, 8 people each hour( 7pm, 8pm, 9pm ) its a set tasting menu , and changes on what is freshly available each day. At first we noticed how much space we had between tables, and how nice the restaurant was laid out. Only 1 person greeting and serving, but doing an excellent job. Good wine selection, and as the courses came up the presentation, and cooking was very impressive.
The whole meal was faultless.
For us, we found it a bit too quiet, lacking a bit of atmosphere. But if you are looking for a top quality fish restaurant. This ticks the box.
Not cheap but great quality.
