A lot more personal attention to customers, food and also service. It's a positive experience that Brighton has been waiting for. We will definitely be repeat customers.

The restaurant is under new management and the atmosphere is more upbeat. The owner is most friendly and visits the tables throughout the evening to see that everything is acceptable with the customers. The menu has not yet been revised but promises to be doing so in the near future. The tomato and cabbage soup was very hardy and the... More

The menu does need to be updated and some of the mains need attention i.e. there are only two steak choices. Speaking with the new owner I believe her... More

Just passing through Brighton, we found this spot quite by accident. The menu was pretty standard looking, however we were attracted to the patio for a late lunch on a late summer Sunday afternoon. To our delight to food turned out to be a cut above the ordinary and the entire experience was very enjoyable. Will return in future!

This restaurant was referred to us by our hosts at the Cider House B & B. We sat on the patio overlooking the water and the staff were great. Menu had a good selection and food was good. Served local wine which we enjoyed.

This bay side bistro offers a pretty healthy and tasty menu and we had a great diner here. It was a sunny day so we also enjoyed the fact that we could each at waters edge. They have a craft brewery next door that also has some pretty awesome brew!
