Probably the best in Campello

This is a regular haunt for us and is generally of a very high standard. Of particular note are the parmesan croqueetes, the pigs' ears and the lasagne but to be fair everything is usually excellent. The wine list is very good and reasonably priced. So why not 5 stars? Well, just accasionally... read more

Wonderful pizza, made on the premises.. I love the Marinara, beautiful seafood and the thin crispy base is just delicious... Lots of lively red, white or rosé wine to taste.. The pasta is very fresh and always the sauce is tasty.. If you love Italian, then you will love the Brel..

This place is always a safe bet. Great service, quality food and a good position on the sea front. We have been here many times in the past but we do miss the mushrooms on toast that they used to serve

I really enjoyed my visit to this restaurant. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, explaining some of the more unusual dishes and their ingredients. The wine list is great and very reasonable - both the red and white ones we tried were delicious. The space itself is lovely - sit inside for a view of the beautiful modern kitchen. I... More

This is a place we've visited several times, and it's gone a little off the boil. We had a cracked glass to return, sauce poured over dinner that wasn't asked for and then the returned plate was missing the garnish and the potatoes were finished so we had chips! There was nothing worthy of order on the dessert menu and... More

Spaghetti Carbonara is my all time favourite meal, it will be hard to ever beat the one I had here! Service was amazing too and restaurant was very smart. If I'm ever back in El Campello I will definitely be back here!

This and El Bourgnon, a little further down, are doing things a little differently and deserve credit. Whether it is only style not substance is debateable. Brel specialises in Italian and I enjoyed my ravioli and my fellow diners also had pasta dishes. We had to leave early though as we hadn't booked and were told we needed to finish... More

This was a return visit six months after the first. We were disappointed to find that the selection of food seemed to be dramatically reduced. It was a pity to see such a fall in the range of offerings. No real enticement to return again. Sad!

I have been visiting the Brel for 10years when on holiday, I have seen it change from a simple pizzeria to this most amazing restaurant. The food is beautiful to look at and tastes amazing.
