Alfresco has a stunning location right on the Brighton seafront next to the i360 and opposite a decent car park. Service was friendly and efficient. The food was plentiful and good enough but no wow factor. Excellent coffee though. Considering it's location the prices are probably average at about £17 for a main dish. I would recommend on basis of... More

Family of 8 visited the restaurant for my Dads 60th. Great food, although I felt slightly over priced for what it was. I feel you pay more for the views than the actual price of the food quality. However, service was great .... and yes would recommend it.

So it was my Girlfriends birthday, and we were down in Brighton for a few days. I have to say, Brighton is lovely place. Lot's of things to do, and not too expensive either. But unfortunately, Alfresco was the least enjoyable part of our whole Brighton experience. Obviously not having been to Brighton before, I thought i would do a... More

Rude stroppy service, let us wait at the bar while they argued between them on who was most busy and how to use the till.

Revisited today, for a drink and something to eat before going on the I360. As before made to feel very welcome by staff, who were very efficient.

Went to Alfresco for a valentines dinner with my wife The restaurant offered a fantastic ambiance, great service and real authentic Italian food at a reasonable price. Alfresco was a real positive experience. The location is fantastic with panoramic views overlooking English Channel! Would recommend to friends and family

We book a Valentines dinner here. It was a set menu with limited choice at £29.00. The restaurant was romantically decorated with heart shaped balloons. The staff were very welcoming and efficient. The menu though small was really imaginative and all the courses were delicious. I had sea bream,cooked to perfection. The puds were delicious too. One of the best... More

Just enjoyed our best ever meal at Alfresco's. Although we always enjoy the food here, tonight was exceptionally good. A set menu for Valentine's day with 3 choices for each course, and all beautifully served. Well done to the staff (especially the chef) to feed a quality menu to a full restaurant!

Fantastic Italian cuisine served by a passionate Family in a beautiful location. My booking had a last minute extra arrival, which was catered for with no trouble, and I got to have my favourite Steak Fillet Pasta dish...a must! Friends, ex-colleagues and I were all in agreement that dining at Alfresco's is the closest thing to dining out on a... More

A business colleague had arranged and so after a chilly walk along the promenade and a first glimpse of the i360 arrived at the restaurant. I guess the building is art deco period or at least it looks it. The restaurant is mostly glass which must provide some great views on a summer evening, but tonight it was a little... More
