Description: Described in The Sunday Telegraph as 'The Best Beach Café in the World', Billy's on The Beach is a fully licensed beach cafe with fantastic views, just along the beach from East Wittering with good parking, great staff, and tasty beachside food. Everything we produce is cooked fresh to order or prepared daily, from fish & chips to burgers, moules frites, kippers, breakfasts, brunches, lunches and three course dinners on every day of the week in the summer except Sundays. We do coffees, cakes, scones, hot chocolates for chilly surfers, ice cream sundaes for kids, big & small, sundowners, wines, and our web site tells you all about us . Come and visit us if you get to the south coast, or visit our sister cafe Billy's on the Road, just north of Billingshurst on the A29. We look forward to welcoming you.

Came here for light meal and had pancakes with Nutella. Pancakes was alright but not as the same as Billy's on the road. Shame they didn't include bananas. May go again for a seafood platter.

We have watched with interest over the years as Murray and Chris has transformed this one time little Hatch/take away into a busy and popular restaurant.
Excellent for breakfast, lunch or dinner, it is well recommended but you definitely need to book to avoid disappointment.

Three friends and I stopped in here for a late lunch on a Saturday. Two of us ordered meals and two had tea and cake. The service was quick and friendly and the food great! I had fish and chips which was very tasty, excellent portion sizes. My friend had a hot chocolate that had marshmallows, whipped cream and a flake - maybe don't order this on the side of a main meal as it is so big! :-)

We went to Billy's for lunch while fossil hunting with our 5 year old on the beach.

I had checked on TripAdvisor and it got good reviews and gave it a go.

We were seated quickly and ordered our meals - 2 adult meals and a child's meal. We then waited......and waited..........and waited.

People (locals) came into the restaurant after us and ordered and got their meals. 30mins later my husband asked where our food was. The waitress told us ours would be next. Next was in another 15mins. There was not much of an apology.

Food was okay, definitely not worth the wait.

I would not visit this restaurant again.

Loved it here...really nice decor and atmosphere overlooking the ocean...especially on a windy day when you want to snuggle in the warm after a long walk. The only downside..they don't offer skinny milk and in this day and age, I kind of think anywhere selling mainly tea and coffee definitely should! Otherwise lovely. Apparently they do evening events too, but not been to those yet!
