About IL Bistro Restaurant

IL Bistro, a family-run steakhouse and brasserie, is the original bistro in the lanes. Right in the heart of the action on Market St, IL Bistro is an easy walk from Brighton beach, the Royal Pavilion, Churchill Square and the Theatre Royal, so it is perfect for an elegant pre-theatre dinner, as well as being a popular breakfast and lunch choice every day of the week. This locally owned and locally loved restaurant is housed in an 18th-century fisherman’s cottage, dating to the reign of George 1, which adds to its atmospheric charm. IL Bistro prides itself on being one of Brighton’s longest serving independent restaurants, and they have worked closely with local food suppliers since 1976. An emphasis on fresh, flavoursome seafood keeps locals constantly coming back for more, while IL Bistro’s dedication to the best available Scottish steaks and prime cut meats, grilled to perfection, are the stuff of legend.

A perfect lunch - great tasting food, relaxed and informal surroundings and all at an excellent price. The lunch special menu, at just £10 for 2 courses, is one of the best value offers in Brighton's Laines but the quality and selection are not compromised. The staff are attentive and friendly and, all in all, it was an extremely pleasant experience.

The specials board is worth consideration too!
