We held our evening wedding reception here in December after a looking at a few venues in Brighton. The tables looked beautiful, the setting on the beach was, of course, wonderful. The food was a pre-agreed menu and was delicious. We also had lots of great feedback about the food from our guests and we were all especially impressed by... More

My friends and I went to Alfresco this afternoon for a coffee and a bite to eat. First of all, every member of staff who served us was very rude. Second, the food and drink was awful. I ordered a chicken wrap which was not very good and came out luke warm. One of my friends ordered the Victoria sponge... More

I am sorry to hear about your complaints. I am surprised by your comments. Our Victoria sponge cakes were fresh that morning and we sold around 25 portions with not one complaint. In fact I have just had a look at a slice left over from the weekend and it is moist and delicious. The coffee we use is illy,... More

We had the pleasure of being able to book Alfrescos for our works christmas party this year. Myself and about 50 other nurses and doctors had a fantastic time. The food was brilliant, the staff were really friendly and they had a great disco downstairs with fab music. The rooms and tables were decorated beautifully. We only had one criticism... More

I visited alfrescos on Sunday the 11th January, with a small group of friends. One of the party was running late, we informed staff and the head waiter was tittering and obviously annoyed. When the member of the party did arrive he began to hover around us, with his arms crossed and tutting because we didn't order promptly ( which... More

This is the first time we have visited Alfresco and we were surprised at how much we enjoyed ourselves. We came quite early for dinner so there restaurant hadnt got many people in it, but regardless of this, I didnt feel uncomfortable with the lack of people in there (which I normally do if a restaurant is dead). Shortly afterwards... More

Another successful family gathering here at this wonderfully positioned restaurant. Patient with children! Good selection of food and wines and good service. Cannot fault it. We had Sunday lunch here and then walked along the prom. Perfect way to spend a few hours.

This restaurant has a wonderful position on the seafront and is great to go to after the little ones have exhausted themselves in the nearby playground. The coffee was great and I'm told the Victoria Sponge was just right but they had no understanding of gluten-free or of wheat-free. I ended up with a packet of crisps which wasn't what... More

Thank you for your comments. We used to serve gluten free cake but we didn't sell enough of it and. We make all of our cakes fresh and we started to throw a lot away as it wasn't on demand. More

We recently got married at Alfresco and it was absolutely perfect! The venue, the staff, the decor and the food! Wow... the food! No-one ever talks about the food at weddings but they did at ours! It was exceptional! We would recommend Alfresco for a function anytime but not only that the restaurant on a normal day is superb! We... More

We have recently visited Alfresco for our staff Christmas party and with quite a large number to cater for I can't recommend Alfresco highly enough. Our food was beautifully presented, all arriving together and hot! I have been to many parties where food has arrived either cold, completely wrong or some are still eating the starter whilst up the other... More
