The location is great. The ingredients are good. The steak tartare was very nice as was the smoked salmon. The chicken and artichoke was so bland it was pointless. The steaks (ordered rare, medium rare and medium well) came rare, cold and well done respectively....More

We just experienced such a disappointing evening to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We chose the restaurant because it was where we first met 7 years ago, at which time it offered great food, service and ambience. We drove to Brighton looking forward to our evening...More

Shorts are fine in the courtyard but not really appropriate in the Bistro... but their dress code is pretty relaxed having said that.

The Hotel du Vin Bistro in Brighton is just off the seafront and five minutes from the madly inspiring shops in The Lanes, but who would want to leave? Set in a collection of gothic and Tudor revival buildings built by, so apt, a wine merchant, the hotel has the trademark stylish, witty, super comfortable d��cor that has won the group so many awards. The restaurant is elegant and relaxed and usually full, offering a menu rooted in classic European cuisine with a contemporary edge. The simple classics change seasonally, augmented by head chef Rob Carr���s own creations each day. The extensive, eclectic wine list is central to the hotel, with a great number of choices by the glass.
