I am great fan of Alfresco, having got married there, and every time I return I worry that its standards will have slipped. But I am never disappointed. This time we took my newly-wed nephew and his husband, the latter being on his first visit to the UK, so I wanted to impress. And I did! The food and the... More

We booked this restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The staff were attentive and helpful and the service was quick. The food was extremely tasty, with a lovely range of starters and mains from traditional pasta & pizza to some more unusual meat and fish dishes. The duck liver parfait with brioche toast was particularly nice... More

We went for a 60th birthday party and there were 12 of us. We were blown away by the amazing food, the high quality service, the fantastic atmosphere and of course, the view! I wouldn't normally order pasta in a restaurant because it never quite seems special enough, but I'd heard that Alfresco makes their own fresh pasta so I... More

I brought my parents down to Brighton to celebrate their 37th wedding anniversary - we had the i360 booked up as well as a tour on the open top bus. Due to problems with the i360 and duff service from their staff, we ended up not doing either thing. We did have a table booked at Alfresco at the end... More

I recently celebrated my wedding at Alfresco, we had the ceremony upstairs overlooking the old pier and had our reception downstairs. The entire experience from start to finish was amazing. Alexandra, was super organised and made sure everything ran smoothly on the day. The staff were amazing all night making sure everybody was well looked after. The food and service... More

We organised our works celebration in the private downstairs restaurant and bar. The whole experience was brilliant from the very start when we made our initial inquiry with Alex the Alfresco events organizer right through to the end of the evening where we needed taxis home. From the moment we arrived we had fantastic attention and service which was great,... More
