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.
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.
We loved our dinner at the Little Fish Market. Fabulous food, gorgeous location, excellent service. Close to perfection and - Brighton! We will definitely come again.
Favourite restaurant in Brighton without a doubt.. thank you very much little fish market for amazing food an wonderful service. Can't wait to return. Thank you
excellent food matched by perfect service - we will be back - what a find. I would prefer to keep this a secret just for us....!
Pleasantly intimate atmosphere, with excellently cooked fish. There is a set five course meal, which is well-balanced, but a little too much for an ageing stomach.
This is the best restaurant in Brighton....I think. The front of house is amazing and the food is fabalous and the wine flight is also great.
Little Fish Market is a true gem, every dish is perfection. We have been several times and for us this is the best restaurant in Brighton.
Delicious food with enjoyable wine pairing. Good atmosphere and friendly staff . Particularly enjoyed the cod and sea bream. Would highly recommend to all fish lovers
Excellent unpretentious welcoming place with brilliant, inventive cooking and enhancing wine pairing. In Michelin terms a restaurant worth a detour that feels like a neighbourhood gaffe.
Really fantastic food, pure class and interesting. The wine flight was brilliant too, managing to swop some of the whites for delicate reds. Very relaxed atmosphere.
We had a wonderful evening at this lovely restaurant. A beautiful mouth-watering set menu, accompanied by well chosen wines and very friendly attentive service - perfect!
