Stopped for breakfast, coffee was awful and breakfast was, after a 30 minute wait, very disappointing.

We have often visited here on Sunday afternoons for coffee and decided to come here for food this evening, without booking. We were offered a choice of tables, served drinks quickly and given menus. We ordered a Joojeh kebab with rice and butterfly chicken breast and had peri-peri chicken as a starter. There was a little wait for food but... More

So I had the best home made beef burger and home made bun for as long as I can remember. I had the Mushroom Melt to go with it and it matched perfectly. My partner is not an avid burger fanatic - but she said her chicken one was lovely and would have it again. Give it a go and... More

A long wait, a very rude waiter/manager and astronomical prices. Such a shame to have a horrible place in such a beautiful location

Dropped in for drinks on a sunny afternoon in Hove. The last few times I have been to the View there seems to be a new manager. She always seems to be working hard to make the customer experience so much better than it used to be. Friendly and helpful. It makes me happy to go back.

A busy vibrant eatery serving a good selection of food including fish and chips, greek food, different types of patty burgers and ice creams. You can eat outside or inside in the restaurant. You can also order ice creams (cone or cup) from the beach side. They are undergoing some renovations at present (Easter period), updating part of the restaurant.... More
