Customer reviews for Mirabelle Restaurant
((*** 13 August 2019 by Thomas from Eastbourne
We have been to the Grand many times and the Mirabelle for lunch half a dozen times ...we were a member if their Elite Club , so we were disappointed at what we found. There is a prominent notice saying that Men should wear jackets yet we were preceded by an unjacketed individual in jeans...not an auspicious start.
The Staff were excellent especially the Wine Waiter and the Amuse Bouche were tasty , though the foreign accent of the Waitress made it difficult to understand what we were eating. We were limiting ourselves to two courses and the mains of Bass and Brill were delightfully presented with an excellent array of tasty vegetables, unfortunately both fish were really dry and to be frank disappointing.
The sweets however were wonderful and the mint jelly superb. Coffee was fine but during coffee for some reason the french doors were opened wide making the room both breezy and decidedly cold. We decided to leave but sadly there were no staff to witness our departure. We will not repeat the experience.

Light and airy, tables well spaced. The guinea fowl was very moist and the sauce delicious. The piano playing in the background added to the relaxed atmosphere.

this not being our first time at this restaurant once again the standard of service, menu selection and ambience did not disappoint. This weeks lunch Menu was well above the normal. The choice of starters, main courses and desserts were a excellent reflection of the summer ingredients. My wife loved the Chilled Pea Veloute` and I liked the Smoked Salmon Ballotine. The selection on Main courses was above par , the Pancetta of Cod and the Warm potato and Almond Nougat were not only a delight to eat but, as with all the dishes we had, the presentation was great. The Semolina Pancakes for dessert were really delightful.

We had a superb Evening enjoying the seven course tasting menu with accompanied wines.
It was our 30th wedding anniversary made all the more special by having happy anniversary decorated on the plates of our sweet course and a copy of the menu autographed by kitchen an waiting staff.
All courses were exceptional as was the choice of wines.

As always the service, food and setting excellent. With weekly Menu changes the food is always interesting and well presented and in keeping with seasonal ingredients. We both liked the rabbit main course and I particularly liked the Chocolate fantasy dessert
