Amelie and Friends is a stylish independent restaurant in the centre of Chichester, West Sussex.

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 dining experience.
