Restaurant 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.”
