Brighton Marina Restaurants – Where to go?

Just a short distance away from Brighton and Hove is the Brighton Marina Waterfront complex which has the potential to satisfy all taste buds as it has restaurants, food, and markets from all corners of the globe. One of the advantages of Brighton Marina restaurants is the free parking, 24 hour public transport and the great back drop of the Marina itself make it great for exploring in all weather. It has recently had a huge £250 million redevelopment with more apartments and numerous chain restaurants being added to the area.

This is the Restaurants Brighton guide to the Brighton Marina restaurants.

The Watershed, 7 Western Concourse.

Follow the boardwalk past all the big chain restaurants and turn down the jetty onto the main harbour concourse. Here you will find The Watershed, a family-friendly social bar and eatery with water edge decking and west-facing views perfect for landowners. Food focusses on the social with small plates, sharing platters and excellent Sunday roasts, from the kitchen of Space + Thyme.

Taste Sussex

Taste Sussex fills the big boots of a multinational restaurant on the Brighton Marina boardwalk and does so amply. The look is American diner but the produce is Sussex. The menu feels lounge-diner, but you won’t find a microwave meal (or a microwave) in the kitchen where food is prepared fresh to order. Think focaccia topped with Sussex cheese and charcuterie, burgers made with prime dry-aged beef, fish and chips with line-caught fresh fish. Top that off with cocktails from master mixologists or maybe a boozy sundae using Gusto Gelato made in the Brighton Lanes.
