The top 10 best restaurants in Brighton


Back

As one of the UK’s most vibrant and energetic towns, Brighton’s dining scene matches its fun-filled reputation. You’ll find everything from casual cafes to fine dining restaurants, catering for every kind of cuisine you can think of. Whether you live in the heart of the action in the Lanes or you’re travelling in for a meal from somewhere along the coast such as Worthing or Eastbourne, make your way through our top 10 of the best restaurants in Brighton.

The Little Fish Market

As a bustling seaside town, where better to start than this foodie hotspot housed in a former fishmonger’s next to an old Victorian market. Recognised by local restaurant awards, the Little Fish Market serves up stunning modern seafood dishes with ever-changing tasting menus showcasing the catch of the day.

64 Degrees

Voted among the top restaurants in the UK, this small yet hugely popular spot is one of the very best restaurants Brighton has to offer. The menu features seasonal, locally-sourced produce and an array of enticing small plates.

Murmur

Brought to you by the same chef as 64 Degrees, Michael Bremner, Murmur has a prime spot within the Arches along Brighton’s bustling seafront. Sit outside on the terrace for the best views, as you enjoy locally-caught seafood over lunch or dinner.

Cin Cin

If your heart belongs to Italian food, this fantastic restaurant is a must. Hidden away in a former car garage on Vine Street, you can also enjoy Cin Cin’s authentic cooking at their sister restaurant along Western Road in Hove.

Chilli Pickle

Should you be searching for some of the finest Indian cuisine in Brighton, you can’t miss out the superb Chilli Pickle. Far from your average curry house, expect bold yet expertly-crafted takes on regional dishes with presentation second to none.

The Ivy in the Lanes

Boasting a name that’s recognised around the world, this restaurant has a lofty reputation and the food to match. The Ivy in the Lanes is a bright and airy place to enjoy a meal out with colourful artwork adorning the walls, while you can accompany your food with a bespoke cocktail or bottle of champagne.

Baqueano

One of the top-rated restaurants in Brighton according to former guests, this Argentinian steakhouse is known for its prime cuts and delicious Malbec wines. Combining traditional flavours with high-quality meats, there are also plenty of vegetarian and vegan options to choose from.

Thewitchez

Another highly-rated haunt that has a great location along Marine Parade, this quirky hotspot markets itself as the UK’s first photo design cafe bar. Colourful, homemade dishes with beautiful presentation populate the menu, alongside with hearty European classics including Swiss, German and Polish dishes. Here you can also restore old photos, design your own tote bag and even have your passport photo taken.

Wild Flor

The exposed brick walls and relaxed neighbourhood feel to this exciting restaurant sits somewhat in contrast to the gourmet food served up. Known for its flavourful, seasonal dishes, this is one of Brighton’s most in-demand foodie destinations.

Gingerman

This list wouldn’t be complete without the Gingerman Group, which counts the Ginger Dog, Ginger Fox and Ginger Pig among its restaurants. Close to the Brighton seafront, the Gingerman leads the way with its sophisticated, modern fare that you can experience via a choice of fixed-price and tasting menus.

Whether you’re strolling to one of the restaurants above from your home in Brighton or heading over from our Chalkers Rise development in the Peacehaven area, you’ll also find a beautiful collection of contemporary 3 and 4 bedroom houses at Wychwood Park, just over 10 miles north of town.
