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.

This is a very well-mannered curry - incredibly fragrant and hugely tasty - but not at all hot. And the chicken thighs are marinated and cooked on the bone so the meat stays meltingly tender and oozing with flavour.

Amelie's Salmon and Smoked Salmon Fishcake with Crushed Minted Peas and Tartare Slaw. They're back! With over 20,000 sold, Amelie's fishcakes are easily the most popular dish ever to appear on our menu. Why? Because this is a very special fishcake indeed! Exotic Japanese panko breadcrumbs create the crispiest crunchiest golden coating and the generous filling of poached and smoked salmon has such a lovely deep rich satisfying flavour.

It's great to see this old friend back again. The full-on meatiness is still there, but this time there are more lovely crunchy vegetables too, and even a smattering of pistachio 'emeralds'. Just grab a bit of toast, add a dab of our home-made piccalilli and bite!
