“Consistent”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

This restaurant on the outskirts of Chichester has been serving excellent meals for many, many years and it is only on reading another review that we realised it is like to close. The food has always been consistently good and the atmosphere is great and very French! If you have never been to Comme Ca, do it quickly before it is no longer available.

“Fantastic as always”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

We have been coming to Comme Ca on special occasions for the last 5 years or so. On this occasion we arranged to have the private dining area where 11 of us enjoyed a family birthday meal.

Simon (manager) liaised with me beforehand to create a personalised menu, including photos and messages we wanted to include, and a wonderful chocolate tort birthday cake as a fitting finale to our evening.

The staff were attentive, friendly and helpful and set exactly the right tone for the evening. Everyone had a great evening, from aged 6 to aged 80!

“Great cooking”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

How I wish we had found Comme Ca twenty years ago. This is where Tripadvisor really helps itinerant diners like us.
We had the pre-theatre lunch, 3 courses, a glass of wine, water, coffee and service came to £40 a head - very good value indeed.
Starters - the others had the crab or baked avocado - much enjoyed. I had the grilled fish salad, a bit bland, would have benefited from some vinaigrette.
Main courses - others had the pork belly (wonderful, still talking about it on the way home) and the whole lemon sole ("loved it"), but really I think my calves liver was the best: 3 plump slices of liver, perfectly undercooked, and with lashings of rich dark sauce, on a bed of spinach and mashed potato. Really great cooking.
And the puddings? The same: large crème brulees with side dishes of currants in juice, a bavarois, and mine: a perfectly iced red berry parfait.
The coffee wasn't quite as good as some, but overall a delightful lunch with excellent prompt and discreet service. Also they gave very generous helpings.
When I think of the years we have suffered from the theatre's dreadful in-house caterers, I thank Tripadvisor for sending us here.

“Super supper”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

This really was one of the best meals we have had in a very long time. The food was cooked so well. I had belly of pork which was so tender it fell apart. We were extremely shocked , having rediscovered this gem of a restaurant that it is to shortly close.. The service was subtle and discreet. All in all we had a brilliant evening.
