Great menu, very imaginative vegetarian dishes that even as a meat/seafood/protein addict I found incredible. For something unique I highly recommend. One of my favourite restaurants in Brighton.

The menu is fantastic for vegans/vegetarians alike. Allergens are clearly marked which is really helpful. The food was outstanding. The portion sizes were very large so I would advise to share. We were full after starters! Great cocktails and ambience Would highly recommend!
