Description: Located on the Kings Road in Brighton, Bar Aguadulce is a bright and buzzy spot popular with locals and daytrippers from the capital who all love the down-to-earth atmosphere and authentic Spanish menu. Serving everything from tapas to fresh fish and homemade puddings, Bar Aguadulce is a good spot for get-togethers and after-work drinks-and-dinner dates. Inside you'll find a simple dining room with polished wooden floors, cream walls and red and yellow accents, and the restaurant has a homely, chilled vibe. We love the presa Iberian pork pan-fried with garlic and bay leaves and served with potatoes; and the patatas mojopicon - deep-fried potatoes with a cumin, garlic and tomato salsa.

What can I say about this restaurant - only fantastic. The tapas were the best I have eaten. It was truly home cooking at its best. The facade of the restaurant could be more attractive and inviting. Outside seating has a couple of tables, but these are on the pavement. Not ideal, but once inside, the host/owner is very welcoming... More

I often visited here with a group of friends, it's a very good place for social event. Though could be a bit noisy for a romantic date Paella with Sangria are particularly impressive, I think it's one of the best I've had so far. Also I shared a roast pork dish with my friend the other day, it was succulent... More

We went there by chance & had the most outstanding meal we'd both had in a long time. Generous portions - & a taste bud blowing menu. Sublime! Enjoy!

We visit Spain frequently and love Spanish cuisine - especially from Andalucía. We have just had a fantastic meal at Aguadulce - real home cooking at its best. Many thanks to Carlos and his team for providing a real taste of Spain in wonderful Brighton.

Popped in here for a dinner last week and came out delighted. We started with Fish Soup which was magnificent and full of all kinds of shell fish. We then had one tapas each and found it as big as a main course and full of taste. After just those two courses we found ourselves full so did not have... More

We visited the AguaDulce in Brighton after reading so many positive comments on the Tripadvisor. First, as for starters, we ordered cured ham (3/5), mussels (3/5), and duck slices (5/5). For main courses, we ordered Spanish rice with fish (2/5) and seafood and grilled lamb cutlet (1/5). The star of the meals was the duck slices. The duck and it's... More

Excellent food, original and authentic, not the run of the mill same dishes you get in a lot of tapas places in England. For our party of 3, the dishes came staggered which was great as we always had new, hot dishes coming. Good, friendly service.

We had a selection of tapas and steered away from our favourites and menu classics. This was a great choice as we were presented with delicious, colourful and tasty dishes. Service was exceptional and friendly staff. The family run, non-chain was a delight tucked away off the seafront

We had a fantastic time in Aguadulce, decent bottle of wine, lovely food and fun service by all. Our neighbouring table were also very impressed. We ate too much, but already want to go back.
