Grand Hotel; Mirabelle Restaurant

King Edwards Parade, East Sussex, East Sussex, BN21 4EQ
Unless you’re a resident, it’s easier to approach this smart restaurant, in the aptly-named Grand Hotel, via its own entrance on the eastern-side of the building.

The formal dining room, with its crisp white napery, has large windows overlooking the well-maintained front gardens and the sea.

The cooking is ambitious, but largely carried off with aplomb. Expect the likes of ‘Pike Soufflé with a Smoked Salmon and Dill Sauce’; ‘Warm Squab with seared Foie Gras’ and ‘Seared Scallops with Morcilla’ to be among the starters.

Perhaps ‘Roast black-legged Chicken with Truffle Jus’; ‘Honey-glazed Duck Breast with Tart Tatin’ and ‘Black Bream with Chorizo and Spinach’ among the mains.

Desserts are excellent and look as good as they taste – perhaps’ Banana and Cardamom Tatin’; Valrhona Chocolate Soufflé’ and ‘Rhubarb Fool with Shortbread’ among them.

The wine list is truly comprehensive (plus a good selection of halves), with something for all tastes – but deep pockets are needed if your fantasies are to be lived out.

Service is both professional and formal – beware of your wine being taken out of reach and you being constantly topped up, so you can’t measure your consumption and might need a second unnecessary bottle (all in the name of service, of course). Men require a jacket and tie are required for dinner. The evening often brings a resident pianist.
