I enjoy Fat Leo's, I've been there many times over the years and had some great meals. The only problem is that my boyfriend has a gluten allergy and when he asked what was gluten free they told me I had to go and ask at the desk? So I did, she didn't really know herself but fair play, she... More

Today we made a spontaneous decision to pop to Brighton for the day and wanted to visit Fat Leo again. The first time we visited my wife ate mussels and it made for a great meal, so we wanted to visit again for more of the same. We visited mid afternoon when it wasn't too busy. Service was pretty good... More

Well we ordered wine and bottles came to table but had to ask for the glasses then ordered bread and 8 pieces of bread came but we had 14 in our party, prawns didn't taste of anything. Oh and the coke was flat too!

My partner and I decided on a last minute trip to Brighton and found this gem! Service was quick and very friendly and professional. Portion size was perfect and the food was to die for. I actually can't fault this place. Recommending this place and we will be back for sure!!!

time I have written about them. So no more guilt. Last night I had Mussels and bread (I am on a diet so don;t do frites) which is a massive portion for £5 - in many restuarants this would be £10. Following by pasta arrabiata - which is 4.50 but less on a deal. The waiters are professional and friendly... More

We were drawn in to Fat Leo by their offer of 3 courses for £9.50 and left pleasantly surprised. Good variety on offer and food was great value for money. Cocktails not the best but service was good and overall had a great experience.

Had a meal here on a Friday evening, taking advantage of their 3 courses for £9.50 or 2 courses for £7.50 offer (not avail on Saturdays). Thankfully we'd booked, place was rammed and they were turning people away. Service was prompt, friendly and efficient, food portions more than adequate and very very tasty. All of us had pasta as opposed... More

We had been on a day out in Brighton with friends and wanted something for lunch. We came across Fat Leos in The Lanes and it looked inviting. It was quite busy inside however we were greeted immediately and a table for the eight of us was found straight away which was good as I thought this may present a... More
