“Lunch”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

We had lunch at Betty's today.
We went for their lunchtime deal of 2 courses for £8.95/
I had Fish and Chips whilst my partner had the minute steak with Dauphinois.
Both were delicious, tasty and cooked to perfection.
We also enjoyed their 2 for £10 cocktails. Both very tasty.
For dessert we both had Sticky Toffee Pudding with a delicious custard (more of that please).
Sandy was her usual smiling self, providing excellent service.
This is the perfect place to eat. Excellent food, great surrounding and pleasant, smiling service.
On top of that you can watch the diverse St James's community strolling by.
A must for anyone.

“Lovely place”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

We enjoyed a very nice meal here at the weekend, the food was excellent, well presented and very tasty, my venison was a touch overcooked for my liking and it may have been nice to have been asked how I preferred it done but all said it was still good and the veg puree and sauce that accompanied it was to die for.

My wife had a burger which she very much enjoyed and the sticky toffee pudding for dessert was delicious.

As previous reviews have noted neither the menu or the wine list is extensive but there should be something for everyone.

The service was simply magnificent, very attentive and superbly friendly, the only downside was the fact that for most of the evening this fantastically decorated restaurant was virtually empty and lacked that buzz a Saturday night should have about it.

Will return!

“All the good stuff is true...”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

What a great night. I found this restaurant on Tripadvisor knowing that great restaurants existed in Kemp Town despite living just up the road in Hove. The menu was pleasantly simple but with hints of excellence. It was every bit as good as hinted.

The owners are very hands on which makes it incredibly friendly. The chef it turns out is Michelin star trained and that shows in the quality of the food. The decor is Kemp Town chic. The service is exemplary. I can't think of a venue to eat great food in a welcoming atmosphere that would be better.

My hat is off to Sandy and Johan who run it with love and enthusiasm. I can't wait to go back.

I've been wanting to try this place for a while and wasn't disappointed. We visited Good Friday evening and have had a wonderful time. Fab service,everybody so friendly and happy to have a chat and a laugh, lovely food (I recommend the lamb chops and sticky toffee pudding!) and really good value. I will definitely come back again especially as it is so local.
