New Steine Bistro

New Steine Bistro

Our Bistro is open 7 days a week for Breakfast & Dinner.

We are passionate about food here at the New Steine Hotel & Bistro and extremely popular so please let us know when you book or on check-in if you would like to make a dinner reservation.

We want to assure our guests that a table in our Bistro offering delicious French food is always an option just as it has been for the last 24 years. Whilst the food is no longer homemade, we have partnered with a chef from my own town in Biarritz who delivers from France, straight to our door in Brighton. Our main courses have a south west of France influence and are of very high quality.

Alternatively you are welcome to arrange to eat in the comfort of your own room. 

Brighton is also home to some amazing restaurants and eateries, but for those of you who do not want to go out in the hustle and bustle, especially during these difficult times, you are sure to always find a good French meal in the comfort of our Bistro.

Please find our new menu below.

Previous Reviews

‘Restaurants Brighton’ review our French Bistro

“The first thing you’ll notice about the New Steine, before you’ve even stepped through the door, is that you can’t. Step through the door I mean. You have to ring the bell. Already, you know that this isn’t just your standard restaurant. It makes you feel like a special guest. And that’s exactly how the owner Hervé and the rest of his team make you feel, from start to finish.”
