Thoroughly enjoyed The Little Fish Market, we dine out regularly in Brighton and Hove and this is up there with our favourite 5
This restaurant is all about the finest ingredients cooked to the highest standard. Duncan is passionate about cooking and his 5 course taster menu is a perfect example of high end cooking at its best... faultless. A very smooth operation from the time we walked in to when we left. Knowledgeable staff without being too intrusive.
If I had to find fault I would say the seats were a bit hard and the place could do with a lick of paint but don't let that put you off this gem of a restaurant.
Small restaurant, fixed menu but every course a delight and came with explanation of what you are about to eat. A total must for fish lovers and friendly and entertaining service
Loved this little casual restaurant with food that delivers at each of the 5 courses.
The chef uses the freshest of ingredients and adds his own skilful touches to deliver a great fish experience.
Its not cheap at £69 but with the extra little touches we spent a pleasurable 3 and half hours.
The service was exceptional too by the way - two such friendly and efficient people.
It's not emperors new clothes either as one reviewer told us in his/her tome below as the majority of reviews will testify.Maybe we're all wrong!
Would recommend for a special occasion.
I cannot fault the whole evening whatsoever.
The food was exemplary and very tasty, the sea trout being the stand out dish for me.
Service was attentive, professional, friendly and not intrusive.
The atmosphere was pleasant, not noisy and plenty of space between tables.
A huge thank you to the Chef who took time to chat to us and ask for feedback .
Congratulations on a winning combination. Will see you very soon
Been trying to eat here for a long time and finally managed it....and boy it was worth the wait...a five course set menu for all plus some delightful extra nibbles made for a excellent dinner...we opted for the wine accompaniment which were spot on...and then the front of house (some old familiar faces!) were warm and friendly.hope to come back soon.
We first ate here two years ago and loved it and I’m pleased to report our second visit was just as good. The venue is cozy and relaxing, the staff friendly, warm and knowledgable and the food is clever, well presented and delicious. We won’t leave it so long until our next visit!!
A very special meal for my man’s special birthday,from the welcome to the candle at the endthis was a memorable occasion. Thank you Duncan for sharing your knowledge and passion about food and to every one who made this such an amazing experience.
Excellent. Imaginative food beautifully presented. Knowledgable and welcoming staff. Approachable chef who is happy to discuss his dishes.
A wonderful evening with fab food and excellent service. The menu was different to that shown on the website, but we knew it was subject to change, but we were not disappointed! The 5 courses were perfectly balanced and beautifully presented, with the added surprise of amuse bouche to start with. Couldn’t fault the evening and as we wished it to be....memorable. Wholeheartedly recommended!
Well we finally got a reservation and it didn’t disappoint. The best restaurant in Brighton & Hove, every single dish beautifully cooked, favourites tonight were the smoked trout, superb cod and the signature chocolate dish. A very professional and welcoming service team, next reservation already made 😀 just 1 tiny suggestion (Although forgiven by the excellent food quality), wine list selection and pricing needs review.
The staff were warm and welcoming, the food was truely memorable. Highly recommended - one of the best meals this year!!
My wife and me went to the Little fish market for a long overdue date night. I had been wanting to eat here for a while after reading the great reviews but this small restaurant was always booked well in advance. Having found a babysitter for 3rd November I called the LFM and despite being full I asked if I could be put on a waiting list, 1 week later they called and we were in! Only question now was would it meet the very high expectations I had for this restaurant.. and that it certainly did and more.
Every course, every additional morsel from the kitchen, the bread, the drinks, the attentive service and setting were really on the money.
Particular highlights, a stunning smoked trout served in 3 stages and the most delicate hallibut with seaweed potatoes.
This restaurant is quite unique in brighton and I look forward to returning to see what the menu has to offer.
This isn’t the first time we’ve visited The Little Fish Market and it definitely won’t be the last. The food is outstanding and the service equals that. Wonderful relaxed atmosphere where we took friends for this birthday celebration. This is the best restaurant south of London.
We visited here to celebrate our 6th year anniversary and were served by Asha. From the moment we sat down Asha attended to our every need and gave impeccable 5* service.
The 5 course taster menu was divine the halibut and duck roll was our favourite, every course was mouth watering good.
We didn’t op for the wine pairing as we simply preferred to order a bottle of white and it went beautifully.
Thank you to little fish marker for an amazing experience.
We visited the Little Fish Market to celebrate our wedding anniversary and it did not disappoint. We did the wine paring and had some really interesting wines that we would not normally have ordered. The front of house service is impeccable, giving you information about each dish, friendly, approachable with great timing so you didn't feel rushed or weren't waiting - perfect. Each and every dish from the amuse bouche all the way through was prepared with care. You could taste the individual ingredients yet they all combined and came together. Possibly my favorite dish was a the sardine eclair! This is a Michelin standard restaurant that may just be my favorite!
Had a fantastic five course tasting menu dinner for two at this small gem of a restaurant. The menu is based around freshly caught fish of the day and the dishes are prepared and presented with imagination and class. Food outstanding, service impeccable, environment simple and understated - it's all about the food. Book and visit !
A glorious experience! Tiny restaurant with a no choice menu. Everything is prepared and served with care and style. The plates are beautifully crafted and the ingredients top quality. The fish is of course the star. The wild bass nicoise was in my view an absolute triumph. Cosy, intimate, informal but stylish. What’s not to like?!
The front of house service was attentive and friendly without being obsequious. The chef/owner is obviously passionate about his food. The menu was creative and delicious. Every course was fab and we debated for some time which we most enjoyed. The answer is that the whole thing was wonderfully balanced. This is a fine dining experience with a focus on fish, which we both loved. We will be going back!
this is an incredible chef! Amazing menu ( there is just one) service 'nec plus ultra' ( there is just one gentleman server) So go!
