This casually chic restaurant looks out over the English Channel. Fresh local seafood is what the place is all about, so much so that the menu is divided not just by starters and mains, but also "crustacea" and "fruits de mer." Expect Asian-influenced flavors in such dishes as battered tiger prawns with sweet chili sauce, wok-fried crab or sea bass in a saffron and pernod sauce. More traditional dishes let the ingredients speak for themselves, as with the Sussex fish pie.
Caviar, lobster, and three varieties of oyster add a touch of cut-glass sophistication.
