My partner and i were in Brighton for the day and were told we have to go to this place. So i booked for lunch (which was lucky as upon arrival there was notice 'fully booked, sorry') there was a little bit of a wait for a table, but this was understandable as it was very busy. We were seated... More

We have recently moved into the area from London. My neighbour recommended this place to me based on the fact that my wife is Spanish. We weren't too impressed. Food was stale, lacked flavour and was disappointing. Maybe it was just an off day!!! Will try it again in a couple of months after we have sampled others.

You can't go wrong here - order anything and it'll be great. We like to order two or three tapas and then keep ordering more as we feel like it. That way everything is always hot and you can reorder dishes you love. For us the albondigas, pimientos, pescaditos and the patatas braves are must-haves!!

Amazing Tapas Restaurant. Authentic Spanish feel, wonderful attentive waiters and amazing food. A perfect evening. Only wish I lived nearer and I would be there all the time. The flambé chorizo was a vision and delicious. There is plenty of choice on the menu, seafood, delicious lamb, chicken, vegetable dishes and we sampled far too many in one sitting, but... More

This place is more like a factory. I observed that they compel you to book either at 1230 or a 1330, two shifts, I don't know in the evening, meaning that they calculate that you can eat in one hour. They will make every effort to achieve that. Very unprofessional indeed lacking a minimum elegance. The waiters, not sure the... More

Fantastic Spanish restaurant in the heart of the Lanes, great quality tapas, friendly atmosphere, good value for money. The place is always very busy so you need to reserve mainly at weekends. Friendly staff, service excellent, good value for money, excellent house wine. We live in Brighton and have been there so many times, never disappointed.Highly recommended.
