Restaurants Brighton announce Bravo food and drink winners

Six weeks, 688 registered eateries and a whopping 71,931 votes later (15k more than last year!), the results of the Bravos are in! Yep, Restaurants Brighton have announced the winners of their publicly voted awards, all 19 categories of them, from best restaurant to best cafe.

But there are two big questions: have you tried them all, and do you agree with the results? Here we go…

Scooping the Best Restaurant award is veggie fine-dining restaurant Terre à Terre, pushing last year’s winner Burnt Orange into second place. Terre à Terre recently celebrated 30 years of innovation in vegetarian cuisine.

Another biggie is the Best Brunch award, with the imaginative and infinitely Instagrammable Oeuf in Hove taking the gold this year. If you’ve been reading BOTI for a while, you’ll know how obsessed we are with their Wes Anderson-esque interiors and out-of-this-world good frumpets. 2023’s winners Moksha Caffe took the silver.

What about Brighton’s Best Vegan Food? Last year’s winners Bonsai Plant Kitchen have done it for the second year in a row with their deliciously creative South East Asian-inspired vegan dishes.

Brighton’s Best Cocktail winner is Bombay-inspired newcomer Permit Room. Brought to Brighton by the Dishoom team, they know exactly what they’re doing when it comes to flavour-packed cocktails – and food.

If you’re anything like us, you spend your time measuring out your life with coffee spoons, so knowing who won Best Cafe is pretty darn crucial. This year, Starfish and Coffee by Queens Park won the crown. Known for their excellent brunches and friendly welcome, it’s well worth the walk up Hanover’s Muesli Mountain to get there.

And for the same reason and because coffee = fuel, Best Coffee is quite key, too. Coffee lovers won’t be surprised that cosy Lanes’ spot Komodo Coffee scooped the big one this year.

And where did the public think cooked up the Best Sunday Roast? The Ladies Mile Pub in Patcham won that accolade this year. Their generous offerings cater to meat-eaters and veggies with an excellent choice of sides too.
