No place in Brighton blends boutique charm, haute cuisine and quirkiness like The New Steine Bistro. Having won much acclaim, many awards and the AA Breakfast and Dinner classification for outstanding quality and service, The New Steine Bistro is an absolute gem just a stone’s throw back from Brighton Beach in vibrant Kemptown. Focusing always on refined French elegance but dishing it up with casual seaside charm, The New Steine Bistro is the kind of place to relax and take time to savour the incredible food being offered. Come winter, locally-sourced game graces the menu while during the summer seasonal vegetables are given a hundred different guises. Think French icons like duck confit, potato dauphinois and crème brûlée at The New Steine Bistro. It’s bound to be a treat – but it’s bound to be busy, so reservations are strongly advised.
Very quaint restaurant with only 6 tables, so we were expecting the food to be spot on. For starters..... Unfortunately, my escargot were very rubbery and the puff pastry was burnt. Sonia ate the duck rillett, which she really enjoyed. For mains...... My pork cheeks were quite nice and very tender in the main, but the mash lacked seasoning and butter. I was completely put off when I found something that looked like a fingernail in my mash though. Sonia's duck was over seasoned to the point of drying ones mouth out. She did enjoy the new potatoes though. Dessert....... My apple crumbles was OK, but the apple could have done with a bit more stewing. I wasn't asked whether I wanted cream, ice cream or custard. My preference would have been custard but it came with ice cream. Sonia had the Lemon meringue pie, which she said tasted shop bought and lacked the lemon flavour required of a good Lemon meringue. We would not visit here again just because the mistakes were rookie errors and staff that lacked that attention to detail.
Excellent food using locally sourced ingredients. Wonderful service with a good atmosphere. The staff were friendly and welcoming. Fantastic and would definitely recommend as the quality of food was superb.
Excellent service and wonderful food. A lovely little restaurant in a quiet location close to the centre.. Would definitely recommend. Will certainly return if we visit Brighton again
