Seafood Restaurant
“As an absolute foodie, this is one of my favorite Fish restaurants in Brighton. A good choice of fresh dishes on the menu coupled with some amazing cocktails from the bar means you can't really go wrong here. There is outside seating should you want to admire some of the many amazing sunsets with your Beau. I would highly recommend it.”

Pizza Place
“Fatto a Mano translates as “made by hand” and this sums up what they are all about. Being handmade extends beyond the food and relates to their simple and honest approach, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Utilising local ingredients to create traditional Italian dishes, Fatto a Mano, have fused their homeland with their seaside home. The main menu is supplemented by ever-changing specials and all of their dishes are created right in front of your eyes. Fatto a Mano have recently created a gluten free base that is as good as their original and offer vegetarian and vegan options.”
