Have been before during day time. This last visit was on a Saturday evening. Food good as always but found the tables were too close together and every time a waiter or customer passed me I was being knocked. Not comfortable. Music very loud and could not hold a conversation with the table. Service was good and not rushed. Shame... More

The food and menu was superb. However too many diners crammed in meant it was too loud and you had to raise your voice to have a conversation. Two of us dined here and the plates where far too big for a table for two it was ridiculous. Then the waiters lent over us as we were talking and eating... More

Had always intended to visit Archipelagos and finally got around to it a while ago, as whenever I tried to book previously it was always full (obviously a good sign). Both myself and my wife are fans of Greek cuisine anyway, and we were keen to see how this place shaped up. Well worth the wait, as it turned out.... More

This is a small restaurant along the main road in Brighton, as we both love Greek food we thought we would give it a go. The food was amazing and the place was buzzing. The staff were excellent. If you are going to Brighton for any reason try this restaurant it's a must you will not be disappointed. 😃

After reading so many "great reviews" we decided to have dinner at this greek restaurant. We were extremely disappointed :-( Food was served super fast but the flavours were very poor. Huge quantities of meat that totally put us off eating.... When we ordered the bill the owner wanted us to leave table ASAP, really unpleasant and not welcoming at... More

The food is amazing and the staff are extremely attentive. We shared a variety of dishes all of which were delicious. I was also very pleased to see how clean their loos are as this is an indication of how clean the kitchen is!! We will definitely return.

Food was amazing and very ample portions , and the service was outstanding... The waiter made a huge fuss over the kids who loved every calamari ring they served up in huge portions. Can't wait to go back for another Stifado.
