BRAVO award winners for

Best family restaurants Brighton


This BRAVO category asks you to share, parent to parent, your hard-earned knowledge of what makes the best family-friendly restaurant. We know you’re looking for somewhere that makes, and keeps, the whole family happy. It all starts with children feeling welcome and parents properly relaxed. Next, there’ll need to be lots of delicious food; food that parents will love and ideally, food that the kids will not only eat, but actually enjoy. And the winner of the BRAVO for Best for the Family goes to – Nostos. Huge congratulations to the team.

First place

This light-flooded and spacious Greek restaurant in Hove is family-run and ultimately family-friendly earning them the top spot in the BRAVOs Best for the Family category this year. The epitome of Mediterranean hospitality, Nostos will welcome your little ones with open arms then serve you dishes inspired by the fresh flavours of the Aegean. The well thought-out kids menu features a Greek take on kids favourites, like Greek sausages and calamari with chips and broccoli or tasty pita pizzas. The main menu offers traditional and modern Greek delicacies for parents and more adventurous children to explore. As far as the BRAVOs are concerned, your culinary adventures at Nostos can’t start too soon. You might even feel like you’ve been on a little holiday.

Second place

A much loved Brighton institution, Donatello has occupied its proud corner position in Brighton’s historic lanes for over 30 years. An eternal favourite with local families, Donatello loves to see families and friends returning year after year to enjoy their delicious Italian classics and famous Italian hospitality. The kids menu has all the usual favourites – pizzas, pastas, ice-cream and chocolate cake – all at a family-friendly price. It’s good to know that you can order takeaway, but with a welcome this warm, we suggest you give yourselves a much deserved night off and the little ones a great night out.

Third place

This lovely Hove cafe was inspired by the owner’s travels to Australia and New Zealand which boast some of the best coffee and brunch in the world. And brunch is the star of the show at Jo & Co but there is also a fabulous all-day menu of bistro classics plus tasty soups, sandwiches and snacks if you’re after a casual bite. The kids have their own little menu which understands that some kids like to choose their food in particular combination and build their own perfect stack of pancakes or cooked breakfast. Older kids will love the mouth watering main menu in all its eggy, waffly, avocado-y loveliness as much as their happy parents.
