However, we had a table by the disabled toilet which 4 of us had... More

The corner location of this restaurant and the large Western facing tables (inside and out) made it a great place to eat during yesterdays evening sunshine. Already quite full with families and locals there was a non stop babble of noise and action. Why be understated when you are an Italian, shout and gesticulate no calm relaxed manners here. Having...

Went tonight for a quick bite to eat after visiting Brighton. Have been here before a few times, good food & good prices. Always good value & good size portions. Unfortunately this time there was service without a smile, was shown a table & when we asked to sit by the window instead, it was like we offended the waiter.... More

Been to Otellos a few times now. it's good for when you want something quick and filling to eat especially when you have kids with you. The waiting staff are very friendly but was slightly irritated at how long we had to wait to get our bill when we wanted to leave.

We went on a hot busy evening and felt quite unwelcome as the staff seemed to have bad attitudes from start to finish. We cannot fault the food as it was very tasty. I hope it was the heat that made the service this way, we ate our meal and went to a pub after that was much more friendly.

On a hot sunny day in Brighton (one of the three we're bound to get this summer) our family gathered to celebrate somebody's birthday. We had a number of small children with us, which is why our meal was booked for late afternoon. The immediate impression I got was that the staff did not want us there. I remember waiters... More

My family and I visited Otello's this week for lunch and dined al fresco. We were promptly greeted by the waiter and given a menu together with the specials. I was quite taken aback that nothing on the specials menu and the vast majority of main courses a la carte were priced between £17-£25. For lunch this seemed particularly excessive.... More
