Description: El Mexicano sits in the heart of Brighton's theatre district and prides itself on being the only authentic Mexican restaurant in the area. Buzzy atmosphere is fueled by vibrant Latin vibes, music, cocktails and food. Authentic Mexican cuisine and Spanish tapas is the order of the day, including Enchiladas, mole, sea-food paellas and fajitas. After your meal, visit Valentino, the art deco style bar upstairs, which is licensed until 2am.

“Very good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

We've eaten here a couple of times now as pre-theatre (right next door to the Theatre Royal). Mid week deals on Tapas and Fajitas mean you can do the full night out without crippling the bank balance. We've had both and all dishes have been excellent, not huge portions but a) we were on the cheap deal and b) would you want to be stuffed going into a two and a half hour play? Good service and nice surroundings. Every intention of going back.

We were just passing by and called in for some lunch, the beef burrito was good but the montezuma desert was superb, chilli chocolate syrup in a homemade cake with ice cream, fantastic! Will definatley call in again next time in Brighton.

“Some Clever dishes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Some lovely gems on the menu here and a good selection for the Vegetarians to choose from.
The Chicken Mole was very pleasant in particular and excellent with a couple of beers. Veg Enfrijoladas with goats cheese where also excellent.
We ordered Two Mains as we where short on time.
Would certainly go back to eat there again.
