For all the foodies in town – Visting Nostos Hove

Holland Road sits at the end of Western Road and the beginning of Church Road, so the location couldn’t be more convenient for foodies both in Hove and Brighton. Inside, the restaurant moves away from a traditional taverna in style, heading in the direction of a modern and bright interior.

Welcoming to all

Across the front of the restaurant, floor to ceiling windows create an airy atmosphere with a view onto Brighton’s iconic Palmeira Square, while inside stylish tiled floors, simple furniture and suspended wine racks adorned with foliage add something special to feel of this restaurant.

Vegetarian and Vegan

Nostos Hove brings a new feel to Greek cuisine by pulling the love the country has for fresh fruit and vegetables and showcasing that on the menu here in the South Coast. Often, Greek food is associated with grilled meats and fish with little thought given to the vast array of vegetable dishes Greeks eat daily.

Traditional Greek with a twist

On the Nostos menu the love for fresh fruit and vegetables is evident, with over half the dishes being vegan and vegetarian. Dine in true Greek style, sharing dishes with friends chosen from each section of the menu. Starters, salads, sides and spreads are available alongside main dishes, meaning visitors to Nostos Hove are in for a real Mediterranean feast. You may also wish to try their incredible range of Greek desserts including Baklava which is one of our favourites.

Go for the Greek wine

Let’s not forget about the brilliant wine list on offer, with a selection of delicious handpicked wines from all over the world to compliment your meal. Of course, Greek wines feature strongly on the drinks list, however, you will also find Italian, French and Argentinian wines too. Cocktails, cider, milkshakes, as well as tea and coffee, are also available, meaning everyone will find something they are into.

Sparing a thought for the little ones, parents will be pleased to hear there are no chicken dippers in sight at Nostos. Choose from fresh fish and chips, tomato pasta or meatballs served in a pita, all made in house with fresh ingredients daily.

    We used Nostos to cater for our staff away day and I cannot recommend enough. The food was delicious, presented beautifully and catered to a wide range of dietary requirements. We have booked again for this summer!

  2. Patroklos

    Simply irresistible, especially the vegan moussaka and red mullet, the restaurant was basking in sun light through its huge 3 double fold doors. We love Hove and this is a prime spot to watch it go by and having delicious food

  3. Robin

    Found Nostos this lunchtime by chance and can’t believe we had not found it before. All aspects of our visit were fantastic with the welcome, service, surroundings and food. This will now be a regular place to visit in the future. I would highly recommend.

    Yesterday I had an excellent, authentic Greek lunch. There was even real Greek coffee. I felt very safe because the restaurant had excellent Covid 19 precautions. I will definitely return to enjoy more of the excellent menu. Ann

    10 out of 10. The chef cooks really well. Well done. I will definitely come back. It’s the best Greek restaurant in Sussex in my opinion.

  11. Anika Anika

    One of the best restaurants in Brighton and Hove. Sunday lunch and the roast ( kleftiko ) was one of the best i had in years. Top quality food with fresh and local ingredients. Lots of vegan, vegetarian options and child friendly! Keep up the good job Nostos!!

  12. elena

    As mentioned on my comment is maybe the best Greek restaurant! Sorry my rating was wrong! Totally a five star one!

  13. elena

    The Greek cuisine has finally a new home in Brighton&Hove! Being myself Greek and a foodie, I would highly recommend this gem of modern Greek gastronomy! If you are looking for an authentic Greek dining experience that’s the place!

    Superb restaurant in Hove that reinvents Greek food and delivers a unique dining experience

  17. Nata Papa

    Authentic Greek flavors but with a modern feel. We loved everything we tried and the wine (we picked one from Greece) was also exceptional. Everyone on our table was well catered for as the menu includes very interesting options for vegans and vegetarians. Would definitely recommend and will be back 🙂

  19. silver fox

    Unexpectedly seriously good food by Greek restaurant Nostos in Hove!

    I am not a fan of the Greek cuisine outside Greece for the simple reason that the ingredients are not the same and not as tasty as the ones grown under the loving Greek sun rays! Today i was proven wrong! Chef Alexandros categorically convinced me that ingredients can be bent to ones will and can indeed deliver an authentic culinary experience! Bravo to the Nostos team for a truly inspiring evening!

  20. Fili Sa
