The Copper Clam
We have a private dining area and cater for large groups and parties.
First meal out in a looong time and ut was great! Fantastic selection of seafood. I would say for the money the starter scallops were quite small...but I guess it depends on the season? they were still very delicious nonetheless. The seafood platter was huge and the quality of the seafood was very good. We asked for the oysters to be in tempura which they did with no problems and it was so so good!! I had 2 little ones with me and staff were very friendly. One of my children dropped a glass of Apple juice and this was cleaned up quickly. The waiter reassured my worried boy that it wasn't a problem and that it was an accident. Great staff. Great food. We will be back next time we visit Brighton!
The staff were very friendly & helpful & we would definitely recommend this restaurant
Tables were so close together that the person next to us had their head over our table. The one to the other side i could not get our arm in between, we wanted to order a large quantity of oysters but there was not enough space to place your arms let alone add food items to share.
The staff were absolutely brilliant! Lovely meal and vibe.
Absolutely recommend this place! Great views and the food was outstanding!
We celebrated our nieces 21st here this past weekend ,the staff ,food and service were all fantastic .The freshest seafood with so much choice it made it difficult to decide but it all tasted gorgeous and served in a wonderful manner , no sense of being rushed despite it being a busy Saturday night ,staff interacted with us throughout the meal and made it really relaxed and enjoyable ,and most importantly the birthday girl was really happy .We will return !
Food not as good as it normally is sadly. Disappointing.
Good service by staff, food was cold and expensive for how little we got.
Delicious food and very helpful friendly staff , will defo return
Very good meal lovely setting and staff very good attentive without being too pushy .
The kindest most accommodating staff, delicious food and perfect people watching spot! We will be back :)
Food was utterly horrific. Service was next to none existent. Avoid at all costs.
Cosy place, top notch food and outstanding service
Lovely staff and a great seafood platter. The sea view and ambience made a chilly May evening feel like a holiday meal out even though we’re still in partial lockdown. We’ll be back!
Great time on a cold and windy day. Service a bit slow but with a smile and they were doing their best in busy conditions
All good on the food front, but slow to get our first course. About 1.5 hours. Slightly high end on the cost, so would make this a venue for special occasions.
Lovely meal , lovely ambience , lovely weather ! Service very attentive
Lovely location, but that’s the only positive from the visit. No care or attention to detail. Seafood didn’t feel fresh and food was decidedly meh.
Service was so welcoming and accommodating - lovely team! And the food was just as impressive ! 10/10
Very expensive of what you eat
Food was sublime and the service even better. And we came to sit outside during lockdown on a really windy day. Would come again in a heartbeat :)
I should give 0 stars, maybe one star as they realised how terrible the service was. When I told the waitress I just wanted a soft drink, she said I should learn to drink alcohol and said I should at least have a mocktail and no one would know the difference which I found very rude. I think she has been drinking herself, we asked for a table near a heater but there were none free, but even when one became available a few minutes later we weren't offered it. We then placed our food orders and one starter came 15mins before the other, which then arrived with the main courses all at the same time! When I complained about this the waiter said it was normal which I tried to tell him this is not normal especially for a restaurant charging their prices. My partners starter was also not as described on the menu so in the end we told them to forget it and we'd only pay for ours drinks which they did give us on the house at least but definitely not worth the hassle!! By this time we had been there over an hour and had to find somewhere else to eat, luckily we managed to find another place that had amazing service!
Such a fab little find! Food was incredible and the service was just as good! Moved us under the heater and gave us blankets to keep us warm! We had such a lovely evening. Thank you!
Fab all round dining experience. Great service and delicious fresh fish. Highly recommended 😁
Great seafood and excellent staff
The staff and food were great but the service was slow. We weren’t acknowledged when we arrived and it took 45 mins to get even a drink. It was bank holiday weekend and we did have a great time so I would still recommend it and we would visit again. If I would ask one thing it would be that the service was just a bit quicker
Lovely experience overall though we would have liked to be under the heat lamps. The view was nice and some people who requested were able to move to be closer to the heat so that was really accommodating.
We opted for mostly small plates. One item was already out when we ordered and we overheard another item ran out later. A couple items were under seasoned and a couple were slightly over cooked. Service was good but the prices were a bit steep considering some execution errors. Overall we were happy to be there and would probably go back.
Great location, friendly staff
This is our third visit and each time the food has been excellent.
Table by the entrance spoilt it a bit, but otherwise a really good occasion. Busy but attentive service and very good food. I’d recommend it.
Lovely evening out and excellent food and service. Very good menu and all food prepared fresh, so yummy. Highly recommend for dinner on the beach. Covid safe.
I was disappointed overall as the quality of food did not match the prices. The staff are perfectly helpful and friendly, but the food was of average quality. A pity, as the menu and website were full of promise.
The service was very nice and the food... was the best I’ve ever eat!!! I’ll definitely come back
friendly knowledgeable service - filleted our fish in front of us expertly.
delicious sea food
Great Cataplana and Lobster Thermidor, Oysters devine
How refreshing to be treated so well with courteous Napolese hospitality and drink in such a georgeous panorama. Excellent service and upgraded our wine for same price. Can't thank you enough! Grace Mille! A 1000 thanks!
Great service and quality of food.
Slightly pricier, but that reflects the great ingredients and meals - well worth it in my opinion.
Good service and great food and cocktails, thank you!
