A sleek, contemporary brasserie right on the marina, Malmaison Brighton crafts a modern, inventive menu of gourmet European flavours alongside hearty American and Pan-Asian influences. There are private dining options with wonderful views of the water, while the afternoon tea selection is a quintessentially British treat.

The Malmaison Brighton menu showcases the very best in seasonal British fare and adds in exotic tweaks from around the globe. Fresh seafood tastes include the seared Cornish scallop and crab risotto, while signature takes on home-style favourites can be found with the Mal burger topped with Ayrshire bacon and gruyère cheese. The succulent steak selection uses cuts of Uruguayan Hereford beef, and on Sundays there are roasts with all the trimmings.

A bold, colourful cocktail selection is prepared with style and flair at the elegant Chez Mal bar at Malmaison in Brighton, which diners can enjoy out on the deck. For pudding, there are indulgent British favourites like rhubarb trifle, and sticky toffee pudding.

An elegant, thoroughly modern taste of British seaside dining, Malmaison Brighton is surrounded by leisure attractions on the marina, and is a 7-minute drive from central Brighton.

    Poor service , didn't bring us the scones then when asked for plain told us they had already cooked the fruit ones . Service was poor , has a roast the week before and service was also poor , food is nice but service lets it down .
    Cakes were dry and weren't given an option with the sandwiches .

    My Fiance and I were staying in Brighton and wanted something different for Valentines and came across Malmaison, what a good find.

    Arrival cocktail before our bottle of Champagne at the table, Valentine's menu allowed us sharers or individual dishes, so to start we opted for the Chicken Liver Mousse and Prawn & Crayfish Cocktail, we followed this with the Chatebriaind, then Cheese and a Chcoolate Brownie. Washed down with Coffee and Truffles.

    Food waa delicious and perfect portions whilst service was attentive without being obtrusive. Lots of couples throughout and a lovely intimate setting for a romantic meal for two. We'd certainly come again or even try another Malmaison

    The food and service was excellent.

    Atmosphere was lovely, pretty place - loves the decor. However the food was not amazing. Nor did they have 2 meals that we wanted to order. There was only 1 waitress for 5-6 tables, so service wasnt too quick. We were also placed right next to another couples table, basically touching them, which was uncomfortable - the room should of been utlislied a bit better. Also not impressed with being charged £7 or £8 for bread and olives, we assumed they’d be complimentary. If I came back I would not do the set menu again I would chose from the a la carte as the food looked a lot better there.

    I had the hot poached salmon and macoroni cheese with mushrooms. Bith excellent. Will definately return. Very good offer too.

    It was not easy to find since the restaurant itself was labelled 'chez mal' in the marina guide and malmaison itself was not labelled. When we found it we had to go through the loung, through the bar and along a corridor in the restaurant before getting to the entry point. When we were finally seated the service was excellent. There was quite a long wait before our starter arrived but it was beautifully presented and very tasted. We both chose the salmon for our main and it was cooked to perfection as was the hollandaise sauce that accompanied it. Despite the slow start we felt it had been a very worthwhile visit and would return again.

    We ate off the summer menu and sat on the sun terrace outside in the sun, it felt like we were actually on holiday

    We had the makrel pate and mozerella starters which were beautifully presented and tasted really lovely

    For mains we had the prawn linguine and again everything in the bowl was so tasty and we enjoyed every bite!

    I will definately be going back soon!
