Book your table at Amelie and Friends Chichester

Amelie and Friends is a stylish family-owned independent restaurant in the centre of Chichester, West Sussex. We are just a short walk from Chichester Cathedral, the Festival Theatre and Chichester Cinema at New Park.

We are proud of our reputation for good food and friendly and professional service and are delighted to be listed in the Sunday Telegraph’s Top 500 Restaurants in Britain and Ireland and to be recommended by the Michelin Guide.

Our interesting and varied menu is prepared in-house from fresh ingredients, and our wine list features delicious handmade organic wines from small independent producers.

If the weather is fine you can even dine in our lovely walled garden.

A fabulous place for a spot of lunch, an early pre-theatre dinner, or a delightful evening dining experience.

What’s New

Amelie - Hake & Shiitake Broth

Roasted Hake with Shiitake Mushroom Broth and Spring Vegetables (gf)
This beautiful fillet of hake – simply roasted – goes brilliantly with the savoury meatiness of the shiitake broth. Fresh, light, mouth-watering.

Amelie - Scallops & Cauliflower

Pan-Fried Scallops with Cauliflower Puree, Cauliflower Couscous & Shellfish Dressing (gf)
‘Send us the biggest plumpest juiciest scallops you’ve got!’
Our most popular starter. Scallops and cauliflower is a match made in heaven. The two textures of cauliflower and the crunchy deep-fried samphire are a delight. And before the dish even reaches the table you’ll catch the scent of rock pools and seashore.
Sheer delicious elegance on a plate!

Amelie - Lemon Meringue Tart

Lemon Meringue Tart with Raspberry Sorbet (v)
Sweet fluffy meringue, sharp lemon filling, and a raspberry sorbet to die for. Perfect!

Amelie - Asparagus with Poached Egg and Wild Garlic Emulsion (v)(gf)

Asparagus with Poached Egg and Wild Garlic Emulsion (v)(gf)
The satisfying crunch and clean green taste of new season asparagus mingling with the sweet golden yolk of a perfectly poached egg and gently seasoned with the warm peppery tang of wild garlic. Incredible!

Amelie - Lamb & Ptitim

Roasted Rump of Lamb with Harissa-Spiced Ptitim and Lamb Potatoes
When I first tasted this dish I dreamed about it for 3 days. A beautifully roasted piece of lamb – succulent and tender – with a little crispy fat! Ptitim (we pronounce it with a silent ‘p’) – Middle-Eastern pasta balls with an enormously satisfying texture. Harissa for North-African heat and spice. Deep rich lamb stock. A remarkable and memorable dish.

Amelie - Pineapple Souffle

Pineapple Soufflé with Pineapple & Chilli Salsa and Coconut Cocktail (gf)
Fully fluffed straight from the oven, this pineapple beauty is so soft and inviting. But that’s not all… The salsa has a happy fruity zing and oh! the cocktail is sweet silky luxury in a glass.
Total dessert bliss.
