Have now visited several times recently and it is always very good. The food is freshly cooked and the staff very helpful and friendly. Quite a basic menu but great for families with children. Overall very nice.

Took shelter during the storm and the manager was very welcoming. I had the grilled sardines and the missus had great fish and chips. The kids ate everything and we finished off with a round of great ice cream Sundaes. Lovely.

Came across this restaurant when walking on the beach and so we returned for lunch. Staff were great and very accommodating especially on a busy Sunday. Lovely ambience and good selection of food. Enjoyable.

Good place to meet up and have breakfast, a snack or a glass of wine early evening. Worth a visit for the view of the beach whether it be a beautiful sunrise or heavy rain outside.

Well, after 6 p. m. the parking is free. Such a surprise. Could not be more welcoming, the wine at £5.60 a large glass is better than most round here. Frito misto was tasty, chips fine. Packed out, we got a 'no show'. They have...More

Hi There is a small car park near, but it is a pay and display. It depends when you go and the time of year. Best to check if it is open in the Winter.

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.
