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.

I live in Thailand and everytime I return home this is the first place I like to go with my friends. Fantastic service, amazing food and excellent value for money. Booking is required as they are so busy. If you come to Brighton don't miss this amazing little gem!!!

I thought the idea of tapas was small dishes that you ordered several of to give you a tasting experience? Some of these tapas dishes were huge and expensive! some of the tapas dishes were veering towards the £10 each mark, one cost nearly £14!.. No thanks.

Friendly warm service, accommodated a large party with ease and efficiently. Most importantly the food was excellent quality, with a wide choice. Will go back when next in Brighton.

Booked a dinner for 13 in the private dining area last weekend, we were given a set menu to pick off beforehand and told veggies could be catered for separately. Staff were brilliant, really helpful and the food was great. Perfect food for a big group of hungry stags. Have recommended to friends already.

I booked this restaurant after reading the reviews. We were very impressed with how we was felt welcomed. The food was amazing and the staff were very friendly. I proposed tomy girlfriend here (she said yes) The staff made it so much of a special evening for both of us. Definitely will be booking again. Would recommend.
