Delightful and Friendly

I've walked past this restaurant for the last 10 or so years, yet never been in. Now, in the space of 2 months I have been in twice!

Was at this restaurant last night with friends. We had selection of small plates and copious amounts of wine. The service was great, the food arrived very quickly. A varied menu anf good for vegetarians as well as meaty people The atmosphere was brilliant. In fact it was a super place. Highly recommended.

The food is obvious and simple but very well done and we always get free shots when we go so no complaints from me ;)

A great place to eat out and we have been many times. Eat tapas style or order main courses, starters etc. We always share many smaller dishes - all consistently good. Great value for money. Perfectly acceptable house wine. Staff always welcoming and suitably attentive. The place has a great popular buzz to it and it's always busy - whatever... More

This was our second visit to Archipelagos, this time for my husband's birthday. There were 5 of us on a busy Sunday lunch time. Food and service were both excellent. Waiters are funny and friendly. We'll definitely be back.

Been here a few times; great for lunch or dinner (I prefer the evening as there's a great atmosphere!) Mezedakia menu is my favourite although it's difficult to not just order one of everything on there! Lovely food, well priced and really good service. A definite must if you're in or visiting the Hove area!

We went for an early evening meal before a show at the Old Market . It was already busy - a good sign - and we soon understood why. Very friendly service and just delicious food, particularly the Greek "paella" (nicer than any real paella I've actually had). Very fair price for both food and the wine.
