Had an early dinner, restaurant was not busy, our waiter was very attentive. Great view over the beach. The food was well presented and flavourful. If we are in Brighton again we will certainly make a point of going there again.

How many times do you want to enjoy a drink in the open air but you can't because smokers have the same idea. You needn't worry here because smoking is not allowed inside or outside! Well done alfresco for leading the way!

Where better to be than the seafront at Brighton - elevated views over the sea. Food is OK but nothing special - good for larger gatherings.

The restaurant sits overlooking the sea with fabulous views. The pasta was excellent and the service good. Well worth a visit

Went here for dinner with a friend when in Brighton and we're very glad we did. I had the Pappardelle al filetto made with fresh pasta and perfectly cooked steak and my friend ordered a giant (and tasty) Calzone. The waiters were very nice and...More
