Ok so it was last year we went on a couple of occasions and the service was very poor. Seemed like the staff hadn't had any training - my coffe slopped in saucer and not offered to be changed. My companion wanted mint tea -...More

Have started to go to Koba for breakfast - especially if I want to catch up with friends. Good also to gain strength before tackling Waitrose! Menu is varied - from croissants or toast to the full English. It has a good atmosphere and warmth...More

A name which falls easily from the lips of just about any in the know Brighton resident, Koba Bar and Bistro is the perfect place for relaxed restaurant dining, lazy breakfasts and, quite simply, enjoying the chilled out Brighton lifestyle. Born from a previously smaller bar, the award winning Koba Bar and Bistro is now a thriving hive of dining and drinking activity, offering three coolly sophisticated bars, a spacious bistro and private dining rooms too, not to mention chichi pavement dining. Koba���s modern but unpretentious look is beautifully understated, put together using tactile, warm materials and focusing as much on comfort as on style. Fully intending to make diners feel good, Koba���s menus are very much influenced by the Mediterranean, offering a range of brunch, lunch and dinner options as well as ever changing blackboard specials. Equally as important is Koba���a drinks list. Known for its cocktails this great bar also provides the best of old and new world wines and a variety of beers.
