Amelie and Friends Restaurant

A stylish family-owned independent restaurant in the centre of Chichester, West Sussex, just a short walk from Chichester Cathedral, Chichester 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 Restaurant 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, and we love to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and special occasions!

Amelie and Friends Restaurant - Caprese Salad (v)

Caprese Salad (v)
Fresh, light and delicious – perfect for a lunch in our garden.
Cured Mozarella, Cherry Tomatoes, Avocado, Polenta Croutons and a Basil Dressing

Amelie and Friends Restaurant - Pannacotta

Vanilla Panna Cotta with Rhubarb Consommé and Strawberry Sorbet (gf)
I like to let the strawberry sorbet melt a little until it mingles with the rhubarb and then I quarry out a mini shark-bite of panna cotta for a ‘strawberries and cream’ mouthful to die for!

Amelie and Friends Restaurant - 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 - 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 and Friends Restaurant - 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 and Friends Restaurant - Souffle

Pineapple Soufflé with Pineapple & Chilli Salsa and Coconut Cocktail (gf)
Mmm…it’s like devouring a tropical cloud of sooper dooper candyfloss…and with the gutsy sweet’n’sour pineapple and slinky coconut cocktail I’m left with every sense and tastebud tingling: paradise on a plate!
