A great place to ride out to on a Sunday morning. It can get a little busy at times, but that's a good sign. Breakfasts aren't cheap, but the quality and choice are very good. Well worth a visit, but get there early!

Always love going to this great restaurant by the sea. Latest visit did not disappoint. Fish and chips wonderful. Best chips! One of our group had scallops and bacon, she loved it. Happy, friendly service as ever. Roll on next visit.

Locals Night has a set menu but you can also order from the main menu. As always a great meal with attentive, professional and friendly staff. Look forward to the enhanced facility when it comes to fruition.

Came here for light meal and had pancakes with Nutella. Pancakes was alright but not as the same as Billy's on the road. Shame they didn't include bananas. May go again for a seafood platter.

Described in The Sunday Telegraph as 'The Best Beach Café in the World', Billy's on The Beach is a fully licensed beach cafe with fantastic views, just along the beach from East Wittering with good parking, great staff, and tasty beachside food. Everything we produce is cooked fresh to order or prepared daily, from fish & chips to burgers, moules frites, kippers, breakfasts, brunches, lunches and three course dinners on every day of the week in the summer except Sundays. We do coffees, cakes, scones, hot chocolates for chilly surfers, ice cream sundaes for kids, big & small, sundowners, wines, and our web site tells you all about us . Come and visit us if you get to the south coast, or visit our sister cafe Billy's on the Road, just north of Billingshurst on the A29. We look forward to welcoming you.
