About The Little Fish Market

There’s a lot going on at The Little Fish Market, an award-winning fish and seafood restaurant in the beautiful Regency-era precinct of Brunswick, on the border of Hove and Brighton and right across Upper Market street from the distinguished performing arts centre of The Old Market. Under the leadership of restaurateur and chef Duncan Ray (Latymer Restaurant, Heston Blumenthal’s The Fat Duck), The Little Fish Market has transformed from a traditional fishmonger into a fine dining establishment that makes use of sustainable produce to create dishes served in an exquisite setting.

Further Information

Gaining accolades from The Good Food Guide and a couple of AA Rosettes for culinary excellence since opening its doors in Brunswick just a few short years ago, The Little Fish Market is undoubtedly one of Brighton and Hove’s premier restaurants, seafood-oriented or otherwise. First impressions are, they say, lasting, and when you first enter the restaurant’s Upper Market Street premises you’ll notice that the walls are lined with maritime-themed artworks, all created by local artists and all for sale. Such decor only adds to the charm of this special venue.

The remit here at Brunswick’s The Little Fish Market is simple. Seating only 20 diners at a time – advance reservations are absolutely essential – chef Duncan Ray and his kitchen team exclusively offer a five-course degustation menu, plus a kaleidoscopic wine list that changes according to season, and of course what the trusted fishermen and seafood suppliers have hauled in that very same day. Every dish is nuanced and minimal in its preparation, allowing essence to prevail over artifice and ensuring that this Brighton and Hove seafood restaurant remains at the top of local gourmet’s charts.

As usual, friendly and professional service. A very enjoyable evening with tasty, imaginative fare. A bonus that you can now pay with cards. One of our favourite Brighton restaurants.

Fabulous food. Excellent service. Unintrusive but attentive. Wine pairings were perfect. Every course was delicious but completely different. We will certainly come back in future.

A bit disappointing, heard and read many good reviews, we thought the dishes lacked real flavour, and were a bit bland. Portuguese white wine was good , it was £29 for the bottle, no cheap options, on the wine list.
