I went into Le Magasin and was greeted by a warm friendly welcome, I ordered the Eggs Royale which is a favourite of mine and it completely exceeded my expectations! The eggs were perfectly cooked, the hollandaise sauce was incredible and the service was second to none! I also tried a slice of beautiful orange cake and their homemade salted caramel ice cream which was delicious! If your in the area (or even if your not) take the time to travel and eat and this beautiful cafe, I can garuntee you will walk away with a smile on your face!

The Sea Bass with Samphire in Butter was truly delicious and restored my tarnished faith in restaurant meals. My fellow diner felt the same. The Eton Mess to follow was taken to a new level with crystallised rose petals and just the right balance of strawberries, cream and meringue. And two glasses of chilled Viognier were a perfect accompaniment. May have to visit more often...

We had dinner here last night. The best meal I've had in a restaurant for a very long time. Food was delicious and very reasonably priced. A new favourite.

We were passing through Lewes on our way home to Essex and were tempted in by the specials menu. My husband had the fixed price menu for about £15. The Thai mussels were plump and flavoursome. The seabass with sauce Vierge and samphire was fabulous, especially the vierge sauce. Warm,orange chocolate brownie with ice cream and fruit coulis was also very good. I had the Thai crab and haddock fishcake with pak choi, coriander and honeyed cashews salad. The fish cake was good although it would have been better split into two. The salad was a great combination of flavours. Service was friendly and efficient. It's a shame we live some distance away.
