The Dining options in Brighton are diverse and abundant.  In the statistic of dining locations relative to population, Brighton stands behind only London in all of the UK.  As a relatively small city, the fact that there are over 400 restaurants is amazing. 

            With so many options, it can be extremely hard to narrow down the selection to only one choice.  Luckily there are websites that can assist with this problem.

            If trying to decide on an eatery based on the type of food offered, check out Brighton Cuisine.  This website is very informative and has over 30 styles of food to choose from, ranging from Brazilian, French and Greek, to vegetarian, seafood and steakhouses.

            Another way to narrow down the options is to seek out a restaurant based on its area in the city.  The three main areas are Alfriston, Brighton and Hove.  The location offering the most dining options is Brighton, but each area has something to offer its visitors.  Check out Location Dining for more information.

            If the main factor for choosing a particular restaurant is the atmosphere, This has you covered.  For an extensive list of restaurants based on this classification, visit Dining by Atmosphere.  On this site, categories such as child friendly, outdoor, and romantic help narrow down the search.
