Went to Alfresco for dinner and wasn't disappointed. The food was very tasty - although the portions are pretty big so go hungry! The service was very attentive and friendly. The views of course are what sets this apart from other restaurants and the layout of the restaurant means everyone can enjoy them.

We held a post-team building drinks and dinner event here for our 100+ staff and it was perfect. The downstairs is ideal for a party of 100, the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and the food went down a treat. I don't think in Brighton there is a better place in terms of view either. Would recommend.

Booked a table indoors, but the evening was very hot, and no air con indoors, so it was too hot to eat inside. Thus had an atmospheric meal on the veranda. Italian food, Italian waiter and well cooked, well presented food. We ordered a cake for dessert, to celebrate our daughter's graduation. The most beautiful layered dessert arrived, with firework...

We wanted to do something a different, when we found the Alfresco, we were delighted. Alexandra, who we dealt with from the first appointment was fantastic. She gave us some fantastic advise on how best to run they day, and the wedding package we choose pretty much covered everything we needed. No hidden costs/extras (unlike some other venues we'd visited... More

I ate alfresco here in a chilly breeze (my own choice, I was offered an inside table). Fantastic.Nice meal, nice wine, nice location. A little bit expensive to make it a regular but nevertheless very enjoyable. Good and quick service, Recommended

A top class Italian restaurant with really beautiful and delicious food in a lovely spot. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch in this scenic restaurant, jutting out into the sea with panoramic views of the channel and the Brighton seafront, with gulls gliding so close overhead you could count their feathers. I chose the blue fin tuna salad which came with... More

Having booked a buffet for 30 in separate area downstairs at Alfresco Hurricane 'Bertha' was NOT an invited guest! Starting wet and wild in the morning the sun came out at the same time as did the buffet food and both were much appreciated! The food selection was wide and delicious catering easily to mixed tastes, vegetarian and children plus... More

We had to persevere to enter this restaurant! The first time we went for coffee it was closed for a private event. We then went to check if we needed to book for the next night and were ignored at the door for ages before being told we didn't need to book. We almost didn't go back but the next... More

Had a surprise Birthday party at Alfresco. They cordoned off half the downstairs and we had access to a private terrace. The staff were efficient, attentive and friendly. The food was good and there was plenty for everyone to return for a second time! Drinks, I am told, were not expensive. It is the position of the restaurant that is... More
