I have visited Qualisea many times over the years, being a resident of Eastbourne. Whether it’s been the sit-down restaurant or the take-away section, I’ve never been disappointed. Staff are super-friendly and more importantly, the food is top drawer. Unlike some of the other places...More

Our first time eating here. I had the healthy option of grilled cod with boiled potatoes whilst my wife had burger and chips. 2 clean plates said how we enjoyed our meals, excellent service and friendly waitress.

The staff were rude, unwelcoming and unaccommodating, The atmosphere was eye-wateringly acrid due to smoke from the kitchen. I left with my group before we had chance to try the food. We won't be going back.More

If you are a big group, just don’t go here. Rude staff, unaccommodating to big groups, people with allergies or any custom requirement.
