Ate here for the second time and both have been fantastic experiences. The staff are friendly and were more than happy for us to move tables once one became available outside. We tried a selection of the mezze menu to start, all were very tasty. One in particular I plan to try make at home and... read more

I went with my daughter - so pleased she had booked as we took the last table - this was a Monday evening normally a quiet evening in most restaurants. The quality of the food was first rate with the Kleftico being delicious.

I went there a couple of times.. It's quite good but could do with maybe having a few more vegetarian dishes.

As a local, you have so many options for restaurants in Brighton, but Archipelagos has become a stable/fail safe place to visit with family and friends. It's a lovely family run restaurant with really engaging staff. Ive sampled literally every dish on the menu and you just cannot go wrong. On my last visit, they had a new wine stock... More

I came here with my parents at the weekend. Fortunately we'd booked the night before, as it was totally full by 7pm and they were turning people away. This is a fantastic little place with warm and attentive staff alongside gorgeously authentic Greek cuisine. The starters are delicious, I probably could have worked my way through the whole appetiser menu,... More

Visited this restaurant because I had booked at another Greek venue in Brighton and having waited in the not busy restaurant for over 10 minutes I left and booked Archipelagos. Alone can say is fate dealt me a brilliant hand. Archipelagos was excellent at every level. If you are looking for a good Greek restaurant in this area - this... More

Spent Saturday night here with the family!! Food was fantastic and plentiful!! Booked early in the day and still had to sit outside as the place was heaving!! Still a great atmosphere though. Very relaxed and friendly staff. Main dishes were delicious, also meze style mini dishes were great fun for sharing. Good wine and Metaxa brandy went down well,... More

Food: The main lamb portion was amazing. Thankfully it also tasted great and fell off the bone. The deep fried feta was also a beaut. In general a great meal with good portions however I didn't get the Greek feel/atmosphere I hoping for from the venue itself.

Have walked past this restaurant so many times on our way into town and finally got round to eating here. So wish we had come here before - it was very busy on a Saturday night and a little hectic, but that added to the experience. The food was amazing - fried courgette starter was as good as any we've... More

As good as we hoped..and some. Superb food and the staff are very good. Our only mistake was over-ordering on the food. The meze style smaller dishes are not a small as you think. We orderered one each, three breads and three mains. There was barely space left on our table once the mains arrived. Amazing food, cooked to perfection.... More
