Since the day it opened its doors, the Mirabelle Restaurant in Eastbourne has celebrated numerous awards, accolades and critical notices from the UK’s top food writers. As well as being considered one of the finest restaurants in Eastbourne, The Independent voted the Mirabelle in the top 50 best restaurants in the UK, and it has featured regularly in the Good Food Guide for many years. The Mirabelle serves an exquisite modern European menu of seasonal specialities that play creatively with flavours and textures, and which are complemented by an extremely well-chosen wine list.

Just as impressive is the elegant splendour of the beautifully furnished dining room itself, which you can enter either directly from the hotel or via its own discreet side entrance, and is a quiet haven that attracts romantic couples, small business groups and devotees of gourmet dining.

Together with The Garden Restaurant, they represent the finest dining to be found in East Sussex.

About our Head Chef: Alex Burtenshaw

Alex Burtenshaw joined the team at The Grand Hotel Eastbourne in 2023, bringing 14 years of knowledge and skill from his background at many award-winning hotel restaurants across the South Coast, including Brighton Harbour Hotel & Spa, The Restaurant at Drakes Hotel in Brighton, and Hotel Du Vin in Brighton.

Alex brings to the Mirabelle his signature style of classic British with a modern European twist, taking influence from cuisines all over and adding his own unique spin. His inspiration came from childhood, seeing his father watching stalwart chefs such as Keith Floyd and Rick Stein on the television, and then developing a passion for food and travel.

I’m delighted to be joining this iconic seaside hotel and I’m excited to be championing some of the excellent local suppliers we have on our doorstep, from sustainably sourced fish from Fish MCB Newhaven, to award-winning goats cheese from Nut Knowle Farm, as well as excellent English Sparkling Wine from Bolney Wine Estate, and much, much more.”
