As a couple we eat out a lot so to say that this was the best meal I have eaten this year is a mega compliment! Gingerman is a chic little restaurant in Brighton. The decor is modern and relaxing, the food out of this world! It is a set menu and, although the portions are not huge, they are... More

A wonderful pre Christmas lunch with friends at The Gingerman yesterday. We had the set menu. The food was absolutely delicious, as always. Great service, with a smile. Well done to you all.

One of the best meals I have had a very long time. Came with friends for my birthdays a couple of days ago. We all went for the 3 course menu and everything was perfect from the service to the incredibly tasty food! Couldn't recommend this place enough! Thankyou Gingerman!

One of the best meals we have ever eaten, and we eat out an awful lot. Nothing was too much trouble and service was exemplary. If only more restaurants were like this, I get fed up of poor quality over-priced mass produced dining. Well done guys.

Yet another great meal at The Gingerman. The food is phenomenal - every mouthful to be savoured. I love the atmosphere here - not too many covers, intimate and unpretentious. The service is excellent - friendly and attentive.

...I has been to the Gingerman twice before, but it was a few years ago. They have had a little refit since then and I feel that some of the cosy atmosphere has been lost. The service is still impeccable, friendly, efficient, without being intrusive. In short the staff are brilliant. And the food that I had is still a... More

Lovely atmosphere, beautifully presented dishes but weird combinations - hard tooth threatening nuts with the cod, a cold red wine granite with the souffle (what were you meant to do with it?). For one of the top rated restaurants in Brighton it was all, as a previous reviewer described underwhelming and very forgettable. Great shame

Having lived in Brighton for 5 years we left it too long but it was worth it. Finest dining in the city. The 3 course for £37 a la carter helped make my wife's birthday v special. Check out the soufflé and the wine list! The service was great. Fullish even on a Tuesday and not a surprise! Don't leave... More

We booked this restaurant for my husbands special birthday and there is nothing I could find fault with! We received a warm welcome on arrival and seated at a lovely table. The restaurant is small which added to the cozy and bistro atmosphere and the waiters knowledge of the menu made a pleasant change to the usual restaurant. We started... More

The food is very beautifully presented and pretty well priced but......where is the flavour? My mackerel starter was a lack lustre affair, gorgeous to look at and frankly boring to taste. The main of duck was under seasoned and the accompanying smears were pretty but uninspiring. Desserts felt wildly out of balance. A mid numbingly zesty mandarin sorbet was poorly... More
