I do admit to being a stickler on service and why not..... after all, I don't eat out too much and when I do, I expect good service, especially when it's added to the bill. So there are 4 of us, 2 order the minestrone soup and also 2 other starters. The 2 soups arrive and we wait for the... More

We were in Brighton for the day desperately trying to avoid the usual chains and find somewhere different. This was the worst restaurant I have ever experienced. There were flies all around our table - when we asked for a fly swat our waiter just shrugged at us. As many people have commented the glasses were filthy and the food... More

Always found the food in here lovely and the staff are always cheery! Also you can't complain about the price either, always leaves me with extra to spend on drinks :)

Slow service. Filthy glasses. Had better cheap frozen pizzas. Cheap and it really shows unappetising. So if you want good service and decent food and cleanliness don't bother

Good news...the menu is cheap, that's where it stops! Extremely slow service and then glasses were filthy and unusable. Calamari had 6 battered rings on a huge plate and not appetising. Pizzas, well I have had more flavour from frozen ones I have purchased from supermarket. I don't usually complain, but if it is an express, good value lunch you... More

We first went to Fat Leo a year ago, we had not realized that on a Saturday in Brighton if you had not booked anywhere to eat, then likelihood is that you would go hungry, Fat Leo was the place that said we could get in after a 30 minute wait but got us a table after 10 minutes and... More

Stopped by FATLeo to take advantage of their 2 courses for £7.50 offer. The starters arrived quickly and were really nice but we were left waiting for ages before the mains were served. Although the food was of good quality for the price, the long wait and attitude from the staff lowered the overall experience.

Waited 40 minutes for a starter, and when we complained it turned out it was 37 minutes! To their credit they gave us free drinks, however I would have preferred my starter within 10 minutes and paid full price. Food was OK but to make that mistake on a quiet Friday night is not acceptable. You get what you pay... More
