I believe I am strongly qualified to write this review since I have been eaten on and off at AlFresco for a number of years now.
Throughout the years my number one reason to come to this place has been the Sun. Quite simply,when it's sunny in Brighton, alFresco has an enviable location, overlooking the beach.
It is their service, including everybody from their managers to pretty much all waitresers which is frankly shocking and I dare to say the worst I have ever experienced in Brighton. This has not changed in years. In fact, it has gotten much worse and hence the reason why I am writing this review.
It's a shame that they don't get customer service.
If you are willing to:
1. Be greeted with disrespect. /disregard
2. Be made to feel like a nuance by pretty much all (seriously unhappiness must be contagious
3. Be treated like cattle ( don't even think about suggesting sitting elsewhere other than where told!)
...then this is the right restaurant for you.
Otherwise, if like me you believe that eating out starts at the moment they welcome you in (or like in the case of Alfresco don't welcome you) then avoid this place at all cost.
It's a real shame because their food is pretty good (although a little overpriced).
