About the restaurant
Think lavish three-course Indian feasts, killer craft beers from local Sussex breweries and spiced cocktails – all set in a cosy, colourful, independently run venue near Brighton beach, which has been listed as a 'local gem' in every edition of the Good Food Guide since 2014. Featuring a 70-seat, split-level dining space, the restaurant is decked out with exposed brick walls, wooden tables and vintage Indian design touches.

Curry Leaf Cafe's culinary heart lies in South India, focusing on fragrant curries, crisp-fried street food and chargrilled tandoor dishes, all served 'sharing style' for the table to enjoy. Around half the menu is vegan, and there's a wide range of gluten-free dishes on offer. While the flavours are authentic, you'll find a few contemporary twists – including a range of loaded naans at lunchtime, sold alongside the always popular thali platters (now available until 6:30pm daily).

This is Indian cafe culture, Brighton style.

About the restaurant
The excitement and anticipation that comes with growing vegetables, and creating innovative plates is translated to our guests through our menu.

The plant to plate narrative is at the centre of what we do; our chefs show our local organic farmers a nod of respect towards the passion and patience required to grow a plant, in each dish they create. The seasons dictate our menu, with passion, flavour and creativity at the heart of the operation.

This passion flows through our love of organic, and low intervention wines from small producers, carefully selected and paired with our food.

Our very own indoor vertical farm is our most recent dedication to sustainable practices, allowing us to grow our own bespoke exotic herbs and aromatics for our hyper-seasonal food and cocktail menus, with zero food miles and incomparable flavour.

Excellent food, some dishes way beyond excellent. Friendly and attentive staff. Love the decor and culinary style of the restaurant. One criticism - front door left open let too much traffic noise in. Not a big problem, but a slight negative.

Gastro Pub
Brighton
About the restaurant
Panoramic sea views on Kemptown seafront. This owner run bistro pub offers home cooked food and wonderful Sunday lunches. Friendly, informal service in a beautiful historic building located midway between the pier and the marina. The Bristol is a sophisticated venue that welcomes well behaved dogs and children aged 12 and over for lunch. The evenings are reserved for the grown ups. Formerly The Bristol Hotel, our art deco bar still retains it's classic ambience to make the most of the sea views and offers guests something that little bit special.

About the restaurant
Bill (the man, the myth, the Lewes legend) was born and bred here. It’s the original and dare we say it, still the best Bill’s of all – and not only because it’s our first born. Located right by the river, Bill's Lewes is the perfect spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

About the restaurant
Dine in our blossom dining room or at our sushi cocktail bar

Our mission is to provide pure, plant-powered meals that are good for your body. Our approach is knowledgeable, playful, and engaging. We offer a unique opportunity to experience a different way of eating vegetables and discover new flavours and textures. Talented chefs behind Food For Friends restaurant (established in 1981 as Brighton’s first vegetarian restaurant), Botanique (Hove’s exclusive plant based restaurant) and Wolfox Coffee have put together their experience and knowledge to bring you this new Asian inspired plant based concept.

The result is a creative and colourful menu which shows organic plant-based food can lead to surprising, healthy and mindful new eating experiences. We believe in an upgraded casual dining experience in beautiful light-filled spaces dedicated to natural plant-based food and organic wines.

About the restaurant
We’re proud to say that Brighton was the second ever Bill’s, and whilst it’s no longer a bus depot (spoiler, it used to be a bus depot), it still transports you to the good times. Oh, and it’s only up the road from the seafront, so there’s no excuse to miss it, even if you get lost in the Lanes.

Excellent food, service and restaurant. I would say this was less a meal out and more of an eating experience. Enjoyed every minute and not only definitely going back but also would recommend highly to others.
