There are several reasons to love Brighton. Those who love the beach and taking long walks on the sand find themselves travelling to Brighton to enjoy the beautiful view and take a dip. Others look forward to their exciting festivals and basking in the city’s glorious architecture and art. Finally, some just look forward to the fun they have among a diverse and embracing group of people. But, amidst all these, there’s also a remarkable aspect of Brighton: food.
The local flavours and various types of cuisine you can find in Brighton will make your mouth water. That, mixed with the captivating concepts of each restaurant, is sure to make you have a one-of-a-kind food experience. With that said, check out some of the best places to eat in Brighton:
ThewitchEZ Photo Design Cafe Bar
Location: 16 Marine Parade, Brighton, BN2 1TL
Tripadvisor rating: 5 stars
One of the most interesting restaurants in Brighton (or arguably, perhaps even in the country), ThewitchEZ Photo Design Cafe Bar blends artistic designs and photography with excellent food. The owners, who are web and graphic designers, established this first-ever 1st Photo Design Cafe Restaurant in the UK.
The overall ambience and design of the place are just as magical as their concept and food. The cosy spot is covered with photographs – you’ll find even the ceilings covered with these photos – books and other witchy objects. The homemade dishes are absolutely delectable, with the Lamb Steak and their “Little Hooves” (potato dumplings) as favourites of many.
Besides the ambience and food, there are high praises for the staff and Mr Shadow, the adorable dog who’s part of the team. But, it doesn’t even stop there! The owners also offer photography services. Where else can you find a place like this?

If you’re looking for a place to unwind and settle in while having good food, Burnt Orange is the place to be. In this contemporary restaurant, customers will find wood-fired dishes and high-quality drinks. So whether you want to grab a bite for lunch or lounge around with friends for dinner and drinks, you’ll have a great time in this restaurant.
Burnt Orange offers a variety of dishes that you can order individually, such as the well-loved Smoked Miso Aubergine and tasty Wood-Fired Flat Bread. They also serve vegan and gluten-free options. If you can’t decide what dish to order, you can also try out the “Burnt Orange Experience” to have different dishes picked by the restaurant itself be laid out for you and a friend (the food needs to be shared by a minimum of 2 guests).
The Salt Room

Tripadvisor rating: 4

The Salt Room, the sister company of The Burnt Orange, offers you a taste of fantastic seafood and steak with a view of Brighton’s picturesque seafront. In the summer, it’s best to dine on the restaurant’s terrace that overlooks the beach and the West Pier to take in the view as you can enjoy quality dishes like the Barbecued Cornish Monkfish or share the Surfboard.
The restaurant boasts of serving fresh seafood, shellfish, and meat, grilled over charcoal to establish an excellent dining experience for guests. They also pride themselves on using locally sourced produce for an imaginative menu that also applies to their drinks, earning them the title of the Seafood Restaurant of the Year in 2017.

Are you a fan of eating at a restaurant with an open kitchen, watching as you see the goodness of the dish that you’re about to sink your teeth into? If so, or if you just find the idea completely cool, then 64 Degrees is definitely worth checking out. With the Great British Menu 2017 winner, chef Michael Bremmer’s inventive menu, you’ll have a fantastic time going through this food adventure.
The tasting menu features creative and modern dishes that are matched perfectly with different kinds of wine, working in harmony as you experience the best 64 Degrees dining journey. The staffs and chef are also there to give you information about the different courses on the menu, and they are all undoubtedly well-versed about each one.
If you’re planning to go (I’m certain you’re interested!), just a heads up: the place is relatively small, with only three tables and a counter, so it’s best to book a spot before going to the restaurant.
The Flint House

The Flint House is another place where you can dine at the counter with an open kitchen. Part of chef Ben McKellar’s Gingerman Restaurant Group, enjoy small-plate dishes like the well-loved Sweetcorn Fritters and Fried Jerusalem Artichokes or choose the Chef’s menu – you won’t be disappointed either way.
The restaurant has an upstairs cocktail bar, which has a wide selection of drinks, and a terrace that guests visit as they wait to eat in the cosy interior downstairs or just to have a relaxing time. Service is known to be exceptional too. With a fabulous lively place, friendly and prompt staff, and flavorful food and drinks, it’s no wonder why some reviewers have said they had the “best dining experience” in The Flint House.

Lastly, we have a restaurant by Masterchef: The Professionals champion Steven Edwards. In this modern-looking restaurant, guests can choose between menus of 5, 7 or 9 courses. The food, while pricey, is incredible and worth the value (just ask other guests from Tripadvisor!). Not only that, but the menu changes weekly, depending on seasons and produce that are available to the restaurant – aligned with the restaurant’s philosophy “to celebrate local and British produce using weekly-changing tasting menus.”
With such a focus on quality and freshness, the intricacies of each dish, some of which are the dippy egg and lobster|pea, in the tasting menus certainly make the restaurant worth visiting. All the dishes don’t miss that it’s difficult to identify a definitive favourite. Not to mention that the service is excellent, and the chef could extensively explain details about the food you’re feasting on.
These are six of the best restaurants you can check out when you go to Brighton. It’s a stunning locale brimming with creativity, diversity, and amazing food. So head on over and have a wonderful dining experience!
