After reading the reviews on trip advisor we decided to visit. All I can say is they deserve their excellent reputation: we couldnt fault the food, the value for money is unbeatable and the waiters were very friendly! We felt like if we were in a bistro in the centre of Paris! Just one thing: make sure you book before because we saw lots of people without a booking being turned away at the door! (on a Saturday night...!)

To be quite frank Eastbourne is not really rated or known for it's food but I think this little gem could easily hold it's own in any of the big smokes!!!...have visited Exquis many times and can honestly say have never once been disappointed in food or service and just to be tactful better mention also the company of my friends....great place with a real quirky feel and truly 'french' service....not of course forgetting the lovely food..their compote of duck, Sea Bass and Creme Brulee dishes have become somewhat of a legend with my group of friends.....and this is all offered at such amazing value....will be back real soon as you are always assured of a great night at Exquis!!!!

We have walked/driven past this tiny French bistro for years now and finally had dinner there last night. The food, service and atmosphere was wonderful and the three course meal with of wine was outstanding value. The bill for two people came to £33.00 and included supplements for some of dishes on offer. It is fantastic to find such a restaurant in Eastbourne.

We heard a lot of great things about this restaurant and decided to try itourselves.

We had french paté, carrot&cumin soup, duck breast, ratatouille, creme brulee and strawberry cheesecake. We were both delighted with our choises. The carrot soup and the creme brulee was especially nice. The rice coming with the duck was slightly tasteless but other than that we were truly impressed.

The service was very slow - but we heard they were short-staffed on the evening.

It is incredible value for the quality of the food - £11 for three courses (although in some cases you have to pay extra for your choice of food.)

We really liked the food and plan to visit soon!

Super French restaurant, great atmosphere, has a very warm friendly feel about it, fantastic, great tasting, superb value food. Excellent staff, very friendly and knowledgeable. £10.95 for 3 courses on a weekend! You have to try the creme brulee, the duck was fab too!
