Lovely fish and chips, but the chap who served us left us with our finished plates for over 20 minutes. Finally, I put a timer on my phone and said that if he didn't clear the plates within five minutes, we'd skip pudding. Actually, I wish I had, because the mousse really wasn't anything to write home about. Anyway, we... More

Tried to visit this place at the week-end. Waited at the indicated place to inquire about a table and was passed time and again by waiting staff and a guy who appeared to be management. There were tables vacant in the restaurant but we had to go over and ask a waitress what the chances were of a table and... More

Taken to this Beach Cafe by friends who had eaten here in the evenings before and enjoyed it. Unfortunately Sunday lunch time proved to be a different story. My starter of sardines was OK but my main course of dressed crab was disappearing almost totally made up of brown meat. My wife shared a starter Of bread and olives followed... More

What a wonderful iconic little gem this is on the beach at Littlehampton. Delicious local seafood menu. Today I had the Dressed Crab which simply put, was heaven on a plate. Visited last October and loved this cafe so much today I returned with family.

We decided to drive 90mins to the coast and return to this cafe on the very beach front in Littlehampton being perhaps our 5th visit now as friends had visited and said they had not been so impressed as us so wanted to check it out again. Well the staff were just as friendly and the new menu enough choice... More

East Beach cafe was the venue for a wake we attended. The staff were superb and attentative. The meals available generous and nutritious. A pleasant setting made it all the more enjoyable as a venue to celebrate a life well lived at a place she enjoyed. Thanks so much.

Had dinner on the Friday and enjoyed it so much that we visited for breakfast on Sunday. Both meals were beautifully presented and delicious. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend a visit

We paid £1.50 for one hour's parking in an otherwise totally empty car park and looked forward to Sunday breakfast. I wonder why one has to "wait to be shown to a table" when the place is all but empty? A small cappuccino on a large saucer is £2.55. Breakfast is between £8 and £9.50, and truly is ordinary. I'd...

So nice to be able to eat gluten free fish and chips. Chips are fried separately. Fish is pan fried. Mushy peas with mint. Very tasty

Right on the beach with spectacular views and a relaxed atmosphere we serve uncomplicated and fresh seafood made from the very best ingredients in an iconic award winning building.

We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner inside the cafe and offer take out from our kiosk on the end of the building.

We recommend booking a table, you can do this by emailing or calling us at the cafe.
