Description: Located on the Kings Road in Brighton, Bar Aguadulce is a bright and buzzy spot popular with locals and daytrippers from the capital who all love the down-to-earth atmosphere and authentic Spanish menu. Serving everything from tapas to fresh fish and homemade puddings, Bar Aguadulce is a good spot for get-togethers and after-work drinks-and-dinner dates. Inside you'll find a simple dining room with polished wooden floors, cream walls and red and yellow accents, and the restaurant has a homely, chilled vibe. We love the presa Iberian pork pan-fried with garlic and bay leaves and served with potatoes; and the patatas mojopicon - deep-fried potatoes with a cumin, garlic and tomato salsa.

“No frills...just fabulous food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014 via mobile

Persuaded my wife and friends to try Aguadulce over the Bank Holiday weekend. Efficient booking via email, and table was ready when we arrived slightly early.
Friendly and thoughtful service, no awkwardness when our friends were slightly late arriving.
Good advice when ordering...and then the food....Gambas pil pil were superb. Everything was fresh and cooked perfectly. Overall a great experience...will be back for the best tapas in Brighton.

We came on a saturday evening and were greeted by Louis. He was serving us for the night, and was very nice and friendly addressed us by senor and seniorita (felt like i was in spain)! Ive had paella's in spain but the ones here at aguadulce..were AMAZING! even better than spain!
we had the vegetarian paella and asked to make it spicy! it was cooked perfectly, with fresh ingredients and the right amount of spices! in addition we got a jug of sangria! which was delicious aswell! overall good service, at the end spoke to Carlos (owner of the restaurant), very nice man, we thanked him for making our experience at AguaDulce one to remember!
we also received complimentry shots when we paid the bill (very nice of them)

“excellent food & service, but not cheap”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014 via mobile

There are cheaper and good tapas restaurants nearby, but we have tried them all, and in our view this is the best and most authentic. Excellent food and service. The fish and seafood are particularly fine. However, this quality comes at a price, so perhaps reserve for special occasions.

“Estupendo!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014 via mobile

First time at this tapas restaurant and we were very impressed. The service was excellent and the food fantastic, especially the Manitas De Cerdo. Finished off the meal with a licor de hierbas which ended the evening in an excellent manner. We will come here again, Well done all round....

“What a find!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

Happened to stumble across this restaurant on a recent visit to Brighton and was blown away by the quality of food my family & I received. The restaurant was in fact very busy and we had not made a booking but the manager kindly accommodated the five of us after a very short wait. We ordered some tapas to share as a starter for all and they were excellent in portion, quality and taste. We followed that with the waiters recommended seafood paella... And what a recommendation, it was excellent! Price wise food was great value and in truth expected it to be more.

I have absolutely no hesitation in going back on my next visit and would recommend this goldmine to everyone who reads this.

Well done to all at this fine establishment. Top marks from me
