Best Seafood Restaurants in Brighton
Being right beside the sea, it makes sense that Brighton has some seriously good spots for seafood, and what a selection they are. From freshly rolled sushi through to fish caught right on our doorstep, Brighton's seafood restaurants are a rich and an eclectic mix with enough options to satisfy any sea-salt craving.
If this Brighton seafood restaurant's interiors weren't quirky enough for a visit alone, its fish-inspired menu should certainly do the trick. Set in a series of caves, the pub serves up great plates of crab, mussels and scallops.
It might be a bit better known for its epic Sunday roasts but The Black Lion is also an excellent choice if you're looking for a seafood restaurant in Brighton. Try the seafood chowder with crunchy bread and sea salt butter and thank us later.
It's been a hidey hole for Brighton's fishermen for more than 500 years and The Lion and Lobster is still an excellent seafood pub. With pictures, portraits and fairy lights decorating the walls, the pub has an intimate atmosphere - all the better to enjoy a pint of their excellent craft ale and munch your way through a fish dish.

It wouldn't be possible to list Brighton's best seafood restaurants without including Riddle and Finns, the oyster and Champagne specialists. The restaurant only has space for 40 but this makes it all the more special; perch by a marble table topped with candelabras and prepare to have all your seafood dreams come true.
From its marble pillars through to the dedicated oyster bar and seafood menu, GB1 has earned its credentials on the Brighton seafood restaurant scene. Make dinner a fancy affair at this seafront spot and order from the plush menu which has mouth-watering dishes such as a lobster burger or try their seafood twist on the afternoon tea which includes treacle-cured salmon and keta caviar.
