Locals seduced by great food and a Groupon voucher

Having heard many lukewarm reports from fellow Brightonians over the years, I always presumed Alfresco was geared for tourists; great location/view but beyond that nothing else worth writing about. I don't know whether it was a freak experience but we (a family of four including two insatiable... read more

I was taken here as a birthday treat and thoroughly enjoyed the food and drinks. With a beautiful view on Brighton sea front, and friendly staff.

In a large party I enjoyed an excellent meal. All elements were very well cooked and full of flavour. The wine was reasonably priced. We were there in the evening but I suspect that the view would be excellent during the day. One point was that the food was served to all (several dozen) diners within a short time. It... More

We visited Brighton for the weekend and had a very enjoyable Saturday evening in Alfresco. The service as always is faultless and the meals are wonderful, the views are stunning overlooking the beach and the sea. All in all a great evening

This place overlooks the beach and in the summer will have spectacular views. The food was excellent. The crab starter followed by sea bass on roasted vegetables were top class- the portions were very generous, and mid-priced.Highly recommended.

Myself and my friend came with our 2 and 3 year old boys and were made to feel super welcome, even with my one being loud now and again no one gave grumpy looks. The pizzas we had were beautiful and the waiter was very helpful and friendly to us and the children. Love Italian: Love Alfrescos

A little pricey, but great location on the seafront. Loved the pizza marguarita - fantastic base. Would recommend. Will go back.

I love this restaurant and have been a number of times now. The food is always excellent, the pizzas are brilliant and the service is great. When we went recently we took a toddler and the staff, being Italian (?), were absolutely brilliant with the little one. The setting is fantastic, right on the seafront overlooking the sea. They do... More
