After a couple of recommendations to go here for our 1st anniversary, we were pleasantly surprised, very welcoming even though we hadn't made a reservation and the food was fantastic, my husband raved over the marinated pork!! We will definitely go back when we visit Brighton again! 10/10!!

Casa Don Carlos has been one of our favorite restaurants for many years and we haven't shared it in a review because it was our family's treasured spot. However since we no longer live in Brighton and can't seem to find the time to go back to Brighton as often as we would like, here it is for you to... More

Whilst planning a day trip to Brighton, my colleague recommended I went to Casa Don Carlos for dinner. My friend and I were very lucky go get a table, we sat outside and people were getting turned away in their dozens so book to avoid disappointment!! Lovely family run vibe in the buzzy lanes.. Very tasty!!

My wife and I walked by around lunch time the place was busy and the food looked tasty so we stopped in. The staff was very helpful and friendly. All of the classics where on the menu with a few new ones to me. Everything we tried was delicious. The sangria was great. I definitely recommend this place.

This is the 2nd time we've eaten here when we visit Brighton. The food is delicious and there's a great choice. The meatballs and prawns are amazing!!!

A lovely venue for an informal lunch with family/friends. Great food and friendly service, and the nicest Sangria I have had outside of Spain!

First time at this restaurant. Excellent food, tasty and prompt service. Staff were really friendly and could have not done more to help when it rained and our outside table had to be moved
