Went here recently with the family while in town. Prices looked good from outside with set prices for two courses etc: so we ventured in. All looked good but the food had a very bland taste. My calamari was like it had come out of the freezer. My kids pizza was also not brilliant. I know it was cheap but... More

For two courses it was £7.50 each which is very cheap but nothing was fresh or home made and the calamari was from a packet. Pizza was bad.

We had a day trip to Brighton while visiting relatives in London and were looking for a reasonable priced place to eat when we walked past Fat Leo. Service was excellent and the food was certainly up to scratch although I had to avoid close conversations with people for the next 24hours due to the garlic! Really good place to... More

I took my Brighton-hating girlfriend here in an attempt to make her fall in love with the town. We ended up going to this place 3 times in a week, and she is positively in love with Brighton. The manager and waiting staff remembered us each time, gave us free shots, and even a discount on our third day! They... More

“Heaven!” The food was delightful and the service impeccable. We arrived in Brighton after a sweaty and unpleasant bus journey so being in this restaurant felt like heaven. Currently my top-recommended restaurant in Brighton.

Ive been here a couple of times as I believe in second chances. Both times he tables were sticky and seemed dirty, the food was dry and unappetising. I wonder how much repeat business they get or whether they rely on tourists, as being in the heart of the lanes there is no shortage of passing trade.

The prawn cocktail starter was massive.. Great generous portions. The 2 or 3 course deals are brilliant on a bargain. Standard pizza or pasta - nothing fancy or over-classy. But well worth the money

We used to go here all the time when I was younger and we hadn't been in year so my mum and I decided to visit seeing as we were in the area! We were not let down by the high standard of food, politeness and hygiene. We were highly satisfied with our meal and already planning our next trip.... More
