Description: Amelie and Friends is an independent restaurant situated in a handsome Georgian building right in the centre of Chichester (where Arthur Purchase & Son and The Dining Room used to be). We are close to the Festival Theatre and the St Cyriacs and Northgate car parks.The stylish interior combines Georgian high ceilings and period features with modern building materials and designer furniture. Come and bask in our large secluded courtyard garden planted with olive trees and mediterranean herbs. All our food is prepared in our own kitchen from fresh ingredients, and the menu features a mix of classics done very well plus some quirky and more adventurous dishes. Our delicious handmade wine is sourced from small organic producers from around the world. Our friendly and knowledgeable front of house team will look after you extremely well.

“Delicious food, friendly service”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We've had several meals here, and (almost) without exception the food has been first class - when it's not, they respond very positively. We find it an excellent location for pre-theatre dining as they offer their full menu and take care to get everything served in good time - also very enjoyable for a more leisurely meal. Moelleux au chocolat is to die for!

“Amazing food and service!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

I wish I'd found Amelie and Friends sooner.

I took my friend for her 30th with a buyagift.com voucher and she said it was 'one of the best meals [she'd] ever had.' I'm a vegetarian and was absolutely thrilled to see some innovative cooking and choice on the menu. I had halloumi 'fish and chips' which was delicious, as was our mushroom starter and my friend's pork belly. My friend had a chocolate fondant for dessert and I had an affogato; both were excellent. The service was superb and we were presented with vouchers to return at the end of the meal - a very sensible marketing strategy as I've already re-booked and that certainly won't be my last visit.
