The GB1 restaurant is located inside Brighton's prestigious 'The Grand'. GB1 replaces the old King's restaurant and solely serves seafood. It's only been open for one month and has already attracted rave reviews from diners and critics alike. We were excited about our visit especially knowing that renowned chef Alan White had devised the exclusive fish menu.

Upon arriving at the restaurant we found the surroundings to be simple. The hotel and it's newly opened restaurant overlook the seafront so the lightly coloured walls are very in keeping with it's nautical location. Another nice aspect is that the 15 strong team of chefs will only use fish caught within a seven mile radius. Diners can be sure they are eating fresh produce caught locally.

We also sampled a couple of cocktails, Lady Marmalade and Cucumber Sour. The latter in particular was extremely rich tasting with Hendricks's gin with cucumber and a dash of fresh lemon juice. The Lemon juice being the perfect accompaniment to seafood.

We started our meal with a tiered seafood platter. The enticing selection on offer included king prawns, cockles, clams, mussels, scallops and squid. This was a real feast for the senses and a superb starter.

"GB1 serves wonderful seafood with a sumptuous twist!"

Market fish made up the main, with a Dover sole and sea bass served with mange tout and new potatoes.

For dessert the sumptuous Chocolate Valrhona fondant is served with banana and peanut butter ice cream. We also sampled the Lemon option consisting of three lemon inspired desserts. The bitter sweet tang was a perfect way to end our meal at GB1.
