Award-winning restaurant in the heart of the Lanes, serving seasonal menus for breakfast, lunch, brunch and dinner, speciality coffees, cocktails and wines.

Lost in the Lanes Brighton

Lost in the Lanes Brighton, as the name suggests, is hidden away in the famous Brighton Lanes shopping area of the city. You’ll find Lost in the Lanes at 10 Nile Street, a narrow street that looks more like a shortcut off the main Lanes. This in itself makes Lost in the Lanes a little treasure, either to find by chance while meandering or as a little favourite to keep to yourself.

  1. Agnese Mosconi

    With warm colours, and natural materials, Lost in the Lanes interior is modern, stylish, spacious, and calming.
    It’s your mini-lunch retreat in the middle of town. You are suddenly projected in a holiday-like environment.
    The menu is approachable and sophisticated at the same time, with classic Pan-European dishes meticulously chosen to bring simple flavours together in harmony.
    I was simply amazed by the Ajo Blanco, a white Gazpacho, a symphony of green and white flavours combining vegetables, unforgettable texture and taste together.
    It’s not easy to make a healthy dish so tasty. The pickled grapes were the cherry on the cake.
    I will be back.

    Wednesday lunchtime menu was a real treat and a total surprise, from beetroot and daikon pickles to the sumptuous, buttery hake. The crispy potatoes with truffle and rosemary salt were only just the right side of decadent, will be getting lost again very soon.

  3. Georgia

    Popped in for a brunch with a couple of colleagues and found LOST never fails to impress, from the warm welcome, to the stylish interior, speciality coffee, gorgeous tableware and fresh chef cooked food. Ordered the veggie LOST breakfast plus a side of crispy potatoes with truffle, rosemary and lemon… divine. Shame didn’t have room left for one of the cakes, made by head chef James Lavell. It’s a rare treat in Brighton to find somewhere so cosy yet so special and contemporary. Thank you LOST team for making a regular occasion into such a delicious morning. Will pop back for the luscious sounding slow cooked pork soon. Yum.

    I had Tide by Lost in the Lanes and I was absolutely blown away! Would 100% recommend to anyone, but especially anyone craving some authentic Southern American delicious. It was a little taste of New Orleans, yum.
