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

Go here if you love Spanish Tapas!! Amazing food and delicious sangria. Come early if you haven't booked as it fills up quickly. The staff are friendly and welcoming

Always packed, Casa Don Carlos is a perennial favourite with us for classic Spanish tapas. The cosy and welcoming atmosphere and friendly, efficient staff create the ideal environment for a long lunch with friends or a quick snack whilst shopping. Favourites are the anchovy-infused olives, bread and garlic mayo, mini chorizo flambéed at the table, crab and prawn stuffed peppers,... More

I have been eating here for about 15 years and can not fault it. Having lived in Spain for 10 years I know something about authentic Spanish cuisine. From lunchtime tapas with a glass of wine to a full on celebration they give 100% attention to one's needs. Cooked by Spain ads and served by Spain ads. So much better... More

I want to start by saying that I do not slate restaurants. We were drawn to the restaurant by the number of people eating, nice location and good atmosphere. We ordered six tapas dishes between the two of us none of which were anything special and many lacked seasoning and flavour: 1. Garlic mushrooms. These were just button mushrooms which... More

I'm surprised that this place got so many good reviews(the reason I tried it) but the food was bland, tasteless and disappointing. Most tomato based dishes just really tasted like tomato sauce. Nothing tasted fresh. Portions were huge so my bf and I over ordered but when we requested to take away they just told us off saying no takeaways!... More

Go often with the misses and we always love it! Get the flaming sausages they're amazing! But go easy on the hair spray if you order it.
