Some people could argue that Worthing restaurants have been eclipsed for decades by those further to the east, in places like Brighton. And while that may have been the case in previous years, things have certainly been changing around Worthing lately... Worthing's restaurants are stepping out of the shadows, and local diners can now choose between traditional curry houses, high-quality Thai eateries and brasseries that pride themselves on their locally sourced ingredients. So it's certainly a great time to be a local foodie, and what’s more you can find all of the best places at Quandoo!
Being on the south coast, it's not surprising to find that seafood restaurants in Worthing are a major part of the dining scene. If you're a fan of the ocean's harvest, you've got plenty of mouth-watering options. There are places that specialise in shellfish, offering cockle popcorn and beautifully dressed crab. Fish and chips is always an option too, while lobster thermidor served fresh from the boats at nearby Shoreham Harbour is another delicious local delicacy.
There are also plenty of wonderful places to relax in informal surroundings. For instance, Worthing's restaurants include some superb cafes where you can enjoy a cream and chocolate-topped latte, enjoy a galaxy of tempting cakes and trusty main courses like jacket potatoes or gammon and chips. There are also some great cafes serving light healthy omelettes, with sea views and easy access to the town beach.
Worthing's Asian restaurant selection is no slouch either, and is really starting to compete with Brighton. With Quandoo's local listings, you can find Thai eateries in Goring which cook up stunning prawn tempura and meaty delights like kra chai steak. You'll also find plenty of Indian restaurants in Worthing. If you feel the need for some spicy treats, these popular spots offer traditional favourites and lesser-known regional specialities like achar lamb with tamarind sauce. Any time you feel like spicing up your dining schedule, you can book a table at a new exciting restaurant in seconds with Quandoo.
Fine European cuisine is definitely an option too, with some great French and Spanish restaurants in Worthing just waiting to welcome your dining party. If you're visiting with friends, order up a tapas platter, with albondigas, patatas bravas and all manner of meat, vegetarian and fish dishes. Or, if you need a classy romantic venue, try one of the town's bistros. There are some superb places in the West End which combine local ingredients with classic European recipes. Find out what their chefs can do with locally landed sea bass, savour the richness of their pork medallions, or go to town on 28 day steaks sourced from the region's beef farms.
But you don't have to stick to what you know. One of the great things about Worthing's restaurants is how many culinary cultures they encompass... For example, one day you could explore Catalan tapas, while another you could head to one of the area's Peruvian eateries for ceviche. You can head out for a Goan curry one week, then make a date with Quandoo for a Tex Mex feast the next. There are options for kids, with kiddie portions and soft drinks, as well as some of the south coast's fanciest dining spots. So launch your dining adventure by selecting a place to eat from Quandoo's extensive local listings!
