Went at 6pm on a weekday for a day trip birthday celebration and was not very busy but was told some dishes were not on. The food was so expensive for what seemed like microwaved pasta and we are used to London prices! The pizza and chips looked nice for for a premium price. You pay for the view but... More

We had a company buffet dinner for 200 people at Alfrescos during the summer and it was a wonderful evening. The location right by the beach is superb, ideal for drinks and dinner. All the staff were friendly and accommodating and everything was presented beautifully. We've had some amazing feedback on the food, which was delicious, especially the desserts (of... More

We visited mid July 2014, on a beautifully sunny day for an evening meal. The greeting was very friendly and we were seated at a good balcony table overlooking the beach and sea. Our waiters were very friendly, attentive and fun. The food was delicious and there was a great range to choose from, which is important for a group... More

We recently had our wedding at Alfresco and I had to say I would thoroughly recommend it. The food was very tasty, the staff were lovely and the views from the venue were the icing on the cake. In the run up to the wedding Alexandra was a great help in organising numbers - even reminding us to include ourselves... More

Didn't eat here as we had already eaten and we just wanted a drink. It was a beautiful person balmy evening with stunning sea views and sunset. What I would like suggest that is that you change the balcony railings. They are an ugly metal obscuring the beautiful sunset. You have a unique spot, change the railings to perspex which... More

Great place for a drink or light meal. Nice views out to sea. Good place to be sociable on a spring or summer day or evening.

Enjoyed a lovely lunch on a warm sunny day, sitting on the balcony looking across along the beach. Seafood and pasta dishes were all fresh and very tasty. Prices were good value given we were in Brighton in summer. Service was a little bit lazy but good enough.
