Had a great meal here, service was great, food was top notch, I had smoked haddock with poached egg and colcannon, only negative I could say is that the poached egg was a bit cold but the rest of the food was piping hot. Will definitely visit again

We have become regulars to this establishment..... the service is impeccable & polished, the food is fantastic & so is the view!! Great seafood selection on offer & a very nice wine list. The Malaysian crab was to die for & the oysters are always a special treat..... Such a reasonably priced establishment, with a great loyalty system too! Perfect... More

we were reccomended this place by our daughter and must say we were very pleased with the choice. As it was early sunday evening the place was not very busy, which was good. We had a good mix of dishes and I had an excellent indulgent whole lobster which was cooked to perfection, I also had as a starter the... More

We had lunch outside. Great setting! Blankets would have been nice in order to stay longer. Smoked Salmon with Blinis really nice, King Prawns where delicious and the fish cakes very tasty. Friendly staff!

I booked this venue for ten of us to dine prior to seeing the astonishing Billy Connelly (he maybe ill but he's still got it). We dined really well, three courses and everyone enjoyed the meal, we had 5 bottles of wine and a few beers. Circa 620 quid and worth every penney we would certainly eat there again, great... More

My husband doesn't really like fish or shellfish so we don't come here as often as I would like to but when we do it's always a really delightful treat. The staff are friendly and helpful and we've been lucky enough to always be sat in the centre window seat upstairs, although it's first come first served so you can't... More

My wife and I visited The Beach restaurant for the second time, as we had travelled to Brighton for a concert. Oysters with a glass of Prosecco, followed by Brighton Scallops with chirizo, followed by Bouillabaisse. All first class with very friendly staff.

You don't normally get the both in one sentence, but you do here. Our starters were very different to what you normally order. Sashimi and ceviche. Outstanding. Quality was so fresh and full of flavour. Our mains were of similar quality. My fish pie had lovely chunks of fish and very tasty. Vegetables though had a little too much oil.... More
