Just eight months after opening, Morgans restaurant regularly has to put up the 'full house' signs. Right around the corner from Eastbourne's Devonshire Park Theatre, Geno Dauti's modern European bistro has proven quite a hit, providing imaginative and high-quality cuisine at realistic prices. Quiet decor and subtle lighting create an ambience of professional calm, whilst in the well-lit open kitchen the chefs work their magic without any of the wild mayhem one sees on television cooking programmes. Geno and his two front-of-house staff make everybody feel extremely welcome and take the time to ensure that all diners are efficiently and unobtrusively looked after. The menu at Morgans changes regularly, and Geno is a big fan of seasonal fare, so you can expect to see plenty of fish in the summer and more game in autumn and winter. It being May, my partner sampled some grilled English asparagus, which came with a delicate lemon and butter dressing and Parmesan shavings. My goat's cheese salad with roasted red peppers and olives was equally delicious. For the main course my partner chose a fillet steak on fondant potatoes with caramelised red onion gravy and immediately declared it the best fillet steak she had eaten in years. It certainly looked the part, but I was too slow and fearful of her wrath to pilfer a slice. No matter, though, as I was equally transfixed by my choice of calf's liver with new potatoes and crispy Parma ham, which I couldn't fault. Both dishes were beautifully presented and cooked to perfection, as were the accompanying vegetables. Similarly, the trio of mini desserts - creme brûlée, pannacotta with red berries and a caramel slice - hit the spot. Owner Geno is very adaptable and takes inspiration from customer demands. Morgans offers à la carte, set-price and children's menus, as well as a special pre-theatre menu between 4pm and 6.30pm. We cannot recommend Morgans more highly and suggest you book a table to avoid disappointment.
