Winners Announcement | The 2024 BRAVO Results and Highlights

BRAVOS 2024 – Terre à Terre is Best Restaurant

More than 30 years after opening its doors, Terre à Terre wins the top spot.

One of Brighton’s most successful establishments, Terre à Terre has won Best Restaurant in this year’s BRAVOS having celebrated its 30th birthday in 2023. This vegetarian fine dining restaurant has been delighting Brighton’s diners with its exquisite cuisine for decades but its menu is kept fresh with unique flavour combinations and contemporary culinary techniques. Terre à Terre’s commitment to innovation and outstanding hospitality has been recognised by the Brighton public with this BRAVO award.

The best restaurant in Brighton in 2024. Team Terre a Terre celebrate their first placed finish in the Brighton Restaurant Awards 2024. All the team are cheering outside their brightly coloured venue on little East Street in Brighton. The public decided this vote and gave the title of best restaurant to this venue which has been around some 30+ years.

“We are staggered and delighted to have won this award, and beyond grateful to everyone who voted for us. Terre à Terre is the product of an incredible team, wonderful customers and a thriving restaurant community. We’d be nothing without all these elements. Brighton and Hove is teeming with amazing independent hospitality venues, we’re so proud to be just one of them, and we all need the lovely people of the City to keep supporting us all as they’ve done so amazingly throughout these difficult times. We feel very humbled to receive this award and look forward to feeding you all for a long time to come! And thank you to the Restaurants Brighton team!” Amanda Powley, Terre à Terre


Fans will be excited to see legendary Brighton DJ Fat Boy Slim announce Terre à Terre’s 2024 Best Restaurant win on Instagram on 28 March. His enthusiasm for the venue is clear and he recalls dining there with vegetarian superstar Sir Paul McCartney!


Voted for by the public, the BRAVOS is bigger than ever in its seventh year. This year’s voting total smashed through previous records, beating 2023 by 15,000 to reach 71,931 votes. With voting numbers and public engagement growing year on year, the BRAVOS has become firmly established as Brighton’s best loved food and drink awards. This endorsement is all the more meaningful given the current economic climate which has produced a challenging environment for hospitality venues. Despite everything, public support is clear and the vibrant local scene continues not only to survive but thrive.

“To have won a fifth BRAVO just blows my mind. We have always aimed to be the best in every department of what we do, so to have won the Best Cafe award, which recognises not just our food & drink, but also the environment, the team and our place in the local community means so much to us. We’re just absolutely thrilled and can’t thank everyone who voted for us enough!” Tony Marks, Starfish and Coffee, Winner Best Cafe


In 2024 the BRAVOS launched some exciting new categories to capture some other areas of interest including Best Lunch which has been won by Lost In The Lanes and Best Coffee which goes to Komodo Coffee.

Last year’s Sussex Finest category has been split into Best Sussex Restaurant and Best Sussex Pub to better reflect the diversity and buoyancy of Sussex hospitality which, due to international interest in Sussex vineyards and a vibrant local art scene, is drawing Brightonians out of the city and attracting a steady flow of visitors throughout the year.

We are nothing without our wonderful regulars and thank them all so much for voting for us ! Can’t wait to see the award!” Sarah Tinker-Taylor, Crabshack, Winner Best Sussex Restaurant


The BRAVOS Top 20 lists are an amazing way to navigate the awesome Brighton hospitality scene. Diners can use the wisdom of the ‘hive mind’ to make great choices about where to eat and drink in the year ahead.

The results also give a strong indication of the city’s changing tastes and priorities. In 2024 ‘live fire’ cooking is a strong culinary trend with a number of the city’s best restaurants showcasing this technique; Burnt Orange, Embers, Furna, Bincho Yakitori and Bonsai Plant Kitchen to name a few. There is a growing interest in sustainability and restaurants are progressively starting to communicate their actions to the public, adding a new dimension to the way people choose where to eat. Plant-based restaurants and menus continue to do well in all categories.
