More about Regency Restaurant, Brighton

Brighton’s Regency Restaurant has a history that speaks of the faded glamour and enduring class of the Brighton seafront. Their address on 131 King’s Road is the former home of the richest woman in the world, aristocratic heiress Harriet Mellon. She used to sit and gaze at the sea, eating king prawns, her personal favourite. Take a trip to the centre of the city and enjoy a meal at The Regency in Brighton that can replicate her experience in the 21st century. We’re certain you’ll feel like an aristocrat once you taste this

The fish and chips at Brighton’s Regency Restaurant is excellent, of course, given the Brighton seafront address, but the true joy of the menu is in the fresh fish: grilled sea-steaks come in the form of halibut, lemon sole, dover sole, seabass in lemon and dill sauce...we could go on. Better though, if you go for yourself: take a trip to the King’s Road in the centre of Brighton for a great fish supper. The amazing seafood at Regency Restaurant awaits your visit.

I have never had any fish better cooked than it is at the Regency Restaurant. There is a reason it is one of the oldest restaurants in Brighton, its because its simply the best place to go for fish.

Fantastic service from a great restaurant. This is the best fish restaurant in the UK. There is a fantastic amount to choose from but I am gradually working my way through.

My wife and I brought two visitors to Brighton, who had asked for a traditional fish and chips lunch. We had made a reservation and, on arrival, were shown to a great table by the front window and welcomed warmly to the restaurant. The staff are friendly and approachable and, most importantly, the quality and choice of food was of an extremely high standard. The portions were enormous and represented fantastic value for money. Well done and many thanks to all for a memorable meal.

This is the best fish restaurant on the south coast. There is a simple reason why people keep going back to the Regency Restaurant the food is so good. Give it a try you will be glad you did.

A very busy Saturday lunchtime, but the staff were very friendly, accommodating and efficient - we were a party of 8, including a 3 year old who they really looked after. We couldn't have asked for more. The food was delicious too and never disappoints.

Fantastic atmosphere and buzzing restaurant. We had lunch here. My wife and I had the seafood platter which was nothing short of excellent. The freshest seafood we have ever had. Service attentive and fast. We will be coming back when next in Brighton!

Although we booked through Quandoo we had a 15 min wait for a table and seemed to be placed at the same time as walk ins. Didn't matter as food and service was good as it always is, but not sure I would bother making a reservation next time.

You do not get to be one of the longest running restaurants in Brighton without serving the freshest, best cooked fish on the south coast. The hardest choice you will have is deciding what to order from fantastic menu.
