a great place for light lunch or snack

A frosty response when we enquired upstairs, about the restaurant evening menu, however the downstairs bar provided us with a much friendlier and helpful service. Good food and wonderful position.

My wife & I got married in July 2014 and had our reception here. Alex & the team were so welcoming on the day, service & food was impeccable and nothing was too much trouble. Fast forward a year & my wife and I decided to mark our wedding anniversary with a special meal here. The staff were so welcoming,... More

I made a reservation for my husbands birthday and we had a few friends come along too, we had an amazing view of the old pier, service was great and food was incredible. Highly recommended, you may need to book as does get very busy especially on the weekend.

Alfresco may have been a bit cheap and cheerful in the past but my goodness it has not only raised its game but keeps it up. This is the third time we have been here in the last 4 months at different times of the day and week and all weathers and each occasion has been a pleasure. The young... More

This was an unplanned Pride day lunch stop due to the suspect package... Parade delays and retorting we chose to head in for lunch. What an amazing menu took some choosing ... Went for the scallop ravioli ... Stunning quality thin pasta and beautiful creamy sauce with the most delicately cooked seafood filling. Excellent service too.

The restaurant has an awesome position and no-one can deny this. And I'll be honest, there is nothing wrong with the food. Neither outstanding, or offensive. Having spent quite a lot of time in Brighton over the years I appreciate as with most places like here there is a clear distinction between locals and visitors. But I get the sense... More

I visited this restaurant recently as a group of four (two couples). We were seated outside on the upstairs terrace which afforded glorious views of the Brighton sea front on what was a rare sunny summer day. Both couples shared a pizza from the menu. These were homemade bases which a selection of toppings. I had the margarita which came... More

Alexandra and her team provided a wonderfully relaxed yet very professional and high quality service at my daughter's wedding reception on July 18th 2015 Thank you! We had every faith in Alexandra right from the planning process through to the actual event and rightly so! Wonderful food and the location was just so Brighton and perfect! We loved the (adult)...

We booked here for our anniversary meal whilst on holiday in Sussex, based on previous reviews and the location of the restaurant. The location is right on the seafront near to the old Peter and the new viewpoint being built. Food was delicious and reasonable priced. The started of mixed meats was plenty for 2 people to share. The mains... More
