A family run tapas restaurant situated in The Lanes of Brighton. The food is excellent and you would be advised to take advice from the staff so as not to order too much as the portions are really generous. Have been to this restaurant several times and have never been disappointed. The service is friendly and efficient.

We had lunch at Casa Don Carlos - stumbled across this little gem by chance and probably had some of the best tapas ever. We shared 9 tapas between the three of us and left feeling full! So good portion sizes. The food was great, all dishes were tasty. Staff were attentive and very friendly. We will be back!

Don't normally choose tapas for a meal out but it was delicious. Just as well we got there early as it filled up really quickly. The food arrived quickly and was plentiful. Highly recommended.

staff texting on phones which I hate! specials not changed since July and the service seems to have slipped. Food was hot but nothing special which was a real let down also seem to be a lot of flys which was annoying when eating. Won't give up on the place yet will try again whem back in town.

Great selection and generous portions - what's not to like! Managed to get a lunchtime table for 5 without booking but would imagine booking would be advisable in the evening. Food was excellent, authentic Spanish tapas at its best. Great service and friendly welcome from the staff and food arrived promptly despite the crowds. A little expensive but on a... More

The best tapas I have ever had in the UK! One of my favourite restaurants in Brighton and always worth the booking - every dish is delicious and exciting. It's a great place to go with family, friends or on a date. It will be a bit of a pricey meal - but this is only because everything is so... More
