    Looking for a place for dinner tonight we checked TA and this amazing restaurant came so highly recommended. Just reopened and wow are we glad we dined there tonight. Quirky interior (I won’t spoil the surprise) and singing staff (sublime)this place was a genuine ‘find’. The menu is small and we both opted for the bangers & mash which were delicious. I had red wine and paul chose from the extensive Belgian beer menu. Pudding was waffles and the most delicious Irish coffees for both. Not only were we serenaded by the wonderful owner who was genuinely warm, friendly and helpful but we also got chatting to another couple dining and ended up going on after dinner to a bar for further drinks and chats. What a truly lovely way to end a fabulous evening. Thank you to everyone we met tonight for such a special and fantastic evening.

    Tasty eclectic and one off originality. Performance food, performance service and “what a performance” No spoilers just get in. If you can.

    A scrumptious meal before descending to basement for a puppet show. Jane is a wonderful host and singer. All sorts of things go on in this quirky resraurant/theatre in Brighton's Kemp Town area. Must revisit. Thanks Jane for making my birthday so fab.

    “I’ll look on TripAdvisor and chose somewhere” I said to my husband while he was showering in our hotel room. My finger accidentally touched a place on the list as I settled on the bed to browse places to eat nearby. It said Bom-Banes, a bit odd I thought, I’ll give it a quick look. More like a place for lunch maybe? Nice quirky decor I thought. A quick look at reviews and then said to myself, I should look elsewhere, this was an accident, a slip of the finger, didn’t mean to look at this odd place. Didn’t take long to find myself giving Bom-Bane’s another look and checking out the menus. “Might you have a table for 2 for 7ish please?” “Yes, we do as it happens” I was asked if it was a special occasion and I confessed in the voice of a 12 year old that it was my Birthday! And when we arrived, our little table had my name and a birthday greeting spelled out in glitter. Chris and I are comfortable using our phones in our own company and so as did so, didn’t notice our table had risen about 6 inches! “Has the table moved?” “No, it can’t have”. Our other diners at a larger table were also celebrating a birthday, and they too were from the Isle of Wight! Jane and her daughter, our hosts, performed a Brighton Greeting for us. Perfectly in harmony. We had a bottle of Prosecco, lovely olives and meatballs with mash. Delicious and tasted of home cooking. I then had a birthday song with a waffle and ice cream on the house! As did the other birthday boy. Then, Jane brought a model house and sat with it on her head and it lit up and tiny figures lived inside as she sang a song about her family living in it. A bit later, another bizarre hat and another song, this time it’s about Einstein, of course! A couple passed the window and looked inside then at the menu. I willed them to look up as I wanted to beckon them in, they looked towards the other diners, who did what I wanted to do and she waved them inside. “You’ll love it here!” Jane’s daughter thought they’d stopped cooking as it was getting late, but Jane said there was time for a little more. Our bill could’ve been anything and I’d have paid it, no quibble. I told Jane I was frightened of leaving in case we missed another song and we were plotting our return. Amazing lovely food and company.

    We took over the downstairs for a friends surprise birthday/homecoming party and it was superb! We paid per head (very reasonable) and had a selection of salads, quiches, sausages, hot nibbles etc. All super fresh and incredibly tasty. Very personal touches and will definitely be going back next time we are down

    What a fantastic, unique and special restaurant, nothing approaches Bom-Bane's for the ambience, the detail, and the sense of warmth and celebration. Be taken care of by the best. We were a birthday party of 5, easily diverted by the details of the room and uselessly wondering if the name of the table meant that it really did turn. By itself. Of course it did! Have never before wondered about the names of the other tables in any restaurant. You are greeted with open arms and the staff, including the name sake, take very good care of you for the evening. The food was unique, inventive, the depth of the various marinades was delicious. While the potatoes were mashed it is a travesty to call them mashed potatoes. At conclusion of a leisurely evening the birthday woman was serenaded with the most superbly performed poem complete with one of Jane's amazing hats. It is a small and intimate setting, do yourself a big favour and make reservations particularly early if you plan on visiting Brighton. What a treat.

    Another really enjoyable evening with Jane and her friends. Delicious home-cooking with fresh local produce, a quirky comfy dining room and excellent service. Good choice of drinks, reasonable prices, and if you book in advance for the entertainment evening you will discover the beautiful voices of these lovely ladies and their friends.

    Limited seating. Belgium food. Sausages and mash PLUS Belgium beer. See my YouTube interview with Jane under Jilliana in Brighton. Music and singing in the basement down a metal spiral staircase. There used to be a cinema club on Wednesday’s with food. Check if still going on. Excellent place. Highly recommended. Go, go, go!!

    I chose this restaurant because it had great reviews! And it surpassed all of them. This restaurant does fantastic food, but most of, it is a experience in itself. Jane is lovely and her colleague, don’t know her name. Just do it. We all loved our Bom babes experience

    We booked an early evening meal, despite being the only table in this lovely place, we still had the full bom banes experience with Jane regaling us with poems, songs and janes fabulous hats. The food was gorgeous, the table was entertaining. Wonderful experience for us all, particularly our girls who were delighted. Thank you Jane, you made our weekend!

    1st on the list for Christmas fun. Not a Christmas meal, not a Christmas show, Jane pulls out all the stops to give an amazing experience which is so much fun. Small, intimate space. Share the experience with your best friends. Remember to book well in advance for a super break from standard Christmas stuff, and good food and drink.

    If you love quirky places this will be perfect for you! My partner and I took a trip to Brighton for our anniversary, we looked at Bom-Banes after reading about it online and it’s good reviews. The reviews sure were right and this restaurant needs more credit as some people we spoke to in Brighton had never heard of it. Jane is so lovely and the hospitality is absolutely spot on! It’s very small but it gives a more personal experience because of this, we had a good chat with all the tables around as it felt like we were one big group, it was very cool! Jane had also put happy anniversary made out of cut out letter which was so lovely! All the art work around is so unique and a lovely, creative style! You see something different around the room every time you look, it’s so interesting. The tables moved up and down and side to side, it was a right laugh. Then there were random chimes going off by themselves, it’s so entertaining.. and if that wasn’t enough Jane came out with her wacky hat and told us all a story, which we all loved! But I won’t ruin it for you! You’ll have to wait and see. The food is homemade with fresh ingredients, you sure can tell as well. The flavours in the food are like something from a high end restaurant. You must definitely go here! We will sure be going again if we find ourselves in Brighton again!

    We went to their Christmas performance of 'snow white and the 7 sisters' which was truly amazing. I haven't enjoyed a show so much in years - delightful, quirky and enchanting - I totally loved it. You could take your Mum, your partner, your children - they'd all love it. The performers also clearly enjoyed themselves an the whole evening had the atmosphere of an eccentric family celebrating together. The food was comforting and tasty, the beer was extraordinarily delicious. It's an evening we won't forget. Can't wait to go back.

    Visited with friends for a birthday celebration, the food was delicious and the staff were so thoughtful with a birthday message & pudding with candles. We had a fun evening & enjoyed the sing along, the owners are talented & keen to ensure everyone has a great evening!

    I went with my 18year old son trying to find somewhere a bit different and quirky. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious and afterwards we were treated to fabulous singing by the lovely owner wearing bonkers hats. She was so friendly and the service was really personal. Oh-and the table goes up and down!! Never been anywhere like it. Would be great to go for a group dinner too. I highly recommend it. Very reasonable prices. Thank you!!

    This is just so much more than a meal - it's an absolutely enchanting, quirky experience - somewhere in between having dinner in the living room of your eccentric aunt and being invited into the dressing room of a singer. And being given delicious home made food, whilst being entertained and looked after. We agreed this was one of the stand out evenings of the last few years - a total delight.
