so tasty

We popped in for a small bite and drink around 5.30. We were so pleased we did! The dishes we had had so much flavour and made our mouths water. The Roijas, red and white were lovely too. They happily provided food that was vegan for my friend which was great. I would definitely go here again. We... read more

Recently organised a celebration for my daughter's 18th birthday with 33 family and close friends attending. The guys that run this place couldn't have been more helpful and flexible and on the night, they worked SO hard to make it unforgettable. We had the set menu and each dish that came out was more delicious than the last, ending with... More

We had a booking for 6.30pm,confirmed that morning for 10 of us. We arrived at said time to be told they had given our table away as they were busier than normal. Really poor customer service especially as this booking was confirmed in the morning!

I was brought here for business with some of my colleagues. When you get inside, you forget you're in Brighton. The atmosphere and interior really takes you back to feeling like you're on holiday in Spain. We were treated to the set menu for 8 people, although there were more of us so they tailored it to our group size.... More

My friend and I went for dinner and were both impressed as it was our first visit. The food was all very fresh, it didn't taste as though it has just been microwaved - the ham croquets, patatas bravas and prawns were fantastic! Not the best calamari I've had, but everything else was great. The flamenco dancing and live music... More

My brother brought me here for a bank holiday lunch as he had been before and enjoyed it. It was 2.30 and they were empty, but began to get busier as we dined. But then e were there over 2 hours as the service was so very slow. I understand that tapas come out as and when they re ready,... More

This is a really cute little place in the quirky lanes of Brighton. The food is fantastic and the the service was great with a real Spanish vibe. We were lucky to get the last free table as it was very busy so I would recommend booking before hand. My only issue was due to poor ventilation my clothes really... More
