Bistro du Vin Brighton

You know you’ve had a great stay at Hotel Du Vin when they don’t want to let you leave. With their new, fresh renovations and updated menu, the bistro has also been upgraded.

The attention to detail in this hotel is phenomenal; whether it’s your room or just grabbing an after-dinner drink with friends!


There are endless options for any occasion here including wines from all over the world as well as locally sourced food that will make anyone feel right at home.The Bistro is one of the most charming and elegant restaurants in Brighton. It’s situated just off the seafront, right next to The Lanes shopping district where you’ll find many other great places to eat.
With its warm atmosphere from traditional fixtures like dark wooden chairs with red velvet upholstery as well as modern touches such as a sleek bar top that matches your sophisticated style, it makes for an unforgettable dining experience.

Extensive Wine Menu

The Bistro offers two wine menus, one of which is led by a sommelier. For the Wednesday night we visited, our favourite was the choose-it-yourself option and it features wines from the old world and new worlds with plenty of French options as well.

Luxurious Food Feast

This is the best place for a date night because it’s romantic, cosy and has great food. The pre-starter of bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar was an excellent opening to our meal––we ate most of that before we even got our main course!

We started with the Mackerel Rillettes served with cucumber carpaccio and horseradish cream. The appetizer was accompanied by roasted pear, Sussex Blue cheese, and caramelized pecan nuts.
The plate is just beautiful to look at, but the flavours are also delicious. We were surprised by how flavorful it was!

The first thing we noticed was the beautiful aroma of grilled halloumi and haddock. As our eyes widened, Hepworth Pullman beer-battered fish appeared on one end with a side of roasted potatoes also waiting for us to dive in!
The perfect finish? Stuffed portobello mushrooms that were bursting at the seams.

Lovely Desserts

I’m so stuffed from that delicious dinner. We had a nice time chatting and indulging in appetizers, entrees, desserts- it was great fun!
Our dessert selections were the Ridgeview Cavendish sparkling wine with strawberry mille-feuille cake layers topped with cream sauce and fresh strawberries on top; then we have this tasty Mojitea loose leaf Bird and the Blend tea vanilla cheesecake.
