Alfresco kindly accommodated a late request to host our annual away day. 30 of us spent the day there in early February. It felt like a real treat but also strengthened our work together. The venue was perfect for group discussions and team activities. It was the perfect venue to share ideas and work together - the absence of audio... More

We stopped for some lunch/ to get away from the wind and had the most incredible meal whilst watching the waves. Not just beautiful when it's sunny, the view is spectacular all year round.

The atmosphere in this restaurant by the sea is friendly and welcoming. The staff are particularly attentive and the customer service is to a very high standard - something I feel is missing in so many other establishments these days! The food is delicious and there is a great downstairs bar area which is perfect for parties, wedding and functions.... More

Just come back from eating here. You cannot fault the food, we have eaten here twice now and both times the food has been spot on. The service this time was not as attentive as last time and we didn't get offered water and spent a long time waiting for the dessert menu but the waiters were polite. I had... More

Built right on Brighton beach, this restaurant's unique location is the big draw. I last went there in the summer and it was great to sit outside and enjoy good food and drink. The menu is a little strange, being a collection of pizzas and pasta together with more ambitious dishes. Since you can get the former in many places,... More
