Alfresco has to be one of the worst places I have chosen to eat with my family. We went when the place was failry quiet, a summer evening around 7.30. The place you wouldn't consider busy all evening yet we experienced so many problems. The service there was awful, we had problems with our food order a couple of times... More

Just on a day trip to Brighton, walking along the beach and decided to drop in here for lunch. Both of us had a seafood ravioli which we really enjoyed. Very nice sauce. Decent value once you factor in the uniqueness of the setting.

We went with 2 toddlers, no children's menu but waiter said they do half portions for the children, this turned out to be wrong, only applies to pasta dishes and we ordered fish for the children...the food took ages to arrive and one meal was completely forgotten. Told they could bring it in 10 minutes but by that time the... More

Another successful corporate event held at Alfresco during the CIH Conference in Brighton. Alexandra and the staff were incredibly helpful from planning and organising the event, through to the service on the day. The food was great, with the buffet having something for everyone. The venue itself is in the perfect location, with the seafront as a lovely backdrop. We... More

The place itself looks very impressive from the outset, but the poor menu choice and high prices let it down badly. All in all a very disappointing experience and one which I don't intend repeating.

I am sorry your recent visit to Alfresco did not live up to your expectations. Our prices are very comparable to any seaside restaurant in Brighton, in fact compared to any high end establishment in the city. Our menu is limited so we can ensure the highest quality for the dishes we do serve. For the number of covers we... More

My husband and I had a small intimate wedding at Brighton Town Hall with just 3 witnesses and wanted to have a family meal to celebrate our marriage after the ceremony. We chose Alfresco because we knew that the food there was top class and also because of the venue itself - you'd be hard pushed to find a restaurant... More

We had the most incredible day and Alfresco was the perfect venue for our wedding celebration! The sun was shining so the setting on the beach was stunning. The food was amazing (especially the homemade lasagna) and the service was prompt and organised. The atmosphere was light and fun which is exactly what we were hoping for on our special... More

Stopped for drinks on a sunny afternoon lovely view friendly staff reasonable prices, menu looked good but we didn't try has vouchers for restaurant across the road. Definitely recommend for a place to sit outside on a sunny day, relax with a coffee or glass of wine.

Couldn't comment on the food in here (apart from it looking rather overpriced) but we met a friend in here for a drink before moving on somewhere else for lunch and all I can say was it was... interesting. We were mobbed on the way in by staff who asked us (rather aggressively) what we were doing... when we told... More

Food, service, location, atmosphere, decor, view, cleanliness..... the list goes on Ten out of ten! would highly recommend, can imagine this place to be mobbed in Summer, not a cheap meal, but I believe you get what you pay for. Well done Alfresco and THANK YOU :-)
