Our first experience of this excellent restaurant exceeded all expectations. Attention from staff, quality and presentation of food was all first class. We enjoyed a delicious three course meal at a very modest cost. We will definitely return when next in Eastbourne.

What a wonderful restaurant. Exquisite food, lovingly prepared, competitively priced and such attentive staff. For a lifelong meat eater this was a Vegetarian experience that I very much liked and will certainly return.

The Green Almond is a great family run vegetarian restaurant in Eastbourne. Three course menu for dinner with a choice of 2 options for each. Lovely food and ambience. Only small so do book if you can.

We had Friday dinner here. Unusual vegetarian menu with lots of creative flair. We loved the rice balls. Food is homely and they were obliging about tweaking my menu. Highly recommended for an informal, good value vegetarian meal
