Terre A Terre

We say

With an armful of awards and an army of fans, Terre A Terre is the glittering champion of Brighton’s vegetarian movement. Long before it became fashionable for restaurants to serve organic, locally sourced produce, Terre A Terre began crafting culinary works of art out of super-fresh ingredients from Sussex growers and dairies. It’s now speeding towards its 20th anniversary, and it’s still as exciting as ever.

Before you dive into the menu, consider ordering a glass of something refreshing, to help you concentrate: the dishes are so wonderfully complex that each description runs to several lines. The selection changes perodically; current favourites include cauliflower and ginger bhajis with slivers of chilli, sheep’s cheese rosti with Moroccan herbs and chip-shop-battered halloumi with vodka-spiked tomatoes and fresh pea hash. Everything is so delicious, this place could convert the most committed of meat-eaters.

Vegetarian coooking doesn't come better than this. ★★★★★

This is a seriously great restaurant that has such a variety or vegetarian dishes that you don't even think about the fact that you are not eating meat. Some veggie places can be a touch worthy - but not this one. I went in here with my daughter and her friends who live in Brighton and this is the "Fat Duck" equivalent of vegetarian quality. It's not that cheap mind - but the portions are huge and terrific value. Great atmosphere - without doubt. If you are looking for a high quality meal in a cool, buzzy place - Terre a Terre definitely brings home the bacon. If you know what I mean. Jason
