Description: Located on the Kings Road in Brighton, Bar Aguadulce is a bright and buzzy spot popular with locals and day-trippers 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. The restaurant has homely, um-pretentious and informal, with a very chilled vibe and the service is friendly. Strongly recommended are the Paellas and Rice dishes of which they are absolute specialists. Pop in for a glass of Sherry from their extensive selection, have it with a little tapa, or for a Schooner of the best Spanish beer imported in to the UK. Another feature worth mentioning is their menu which can be entirely prepared in a CELIAC friendly way. Gluten-free beers are also available and their gluten-free bread is baked in house by the Head Chef.

A lively, atmospheric restaurant in the heart of Brighton. The staff were welcoming and attentive and service was very good. Our waitress explained the specials and offered advice on other dishes, There is a good range of tapas on the menu as well as non-tapas dishes, though the latter in less quantity. Our food came quickly - started with gorgeous olives and a killer alioli with bread - and then had 5 tapas dishes between the two of us. Absolutely lovely dishes, full of flavour, excellently cooked. My wife couldn't get a glass of red wine that wasn't Rioja - she would have had to buy a bottle so that was a little disappointing. Those 5 dishes plus the starter was plenty for us. We're not particularly big eaters and I'd say that 2 or 3 dishes per person would suit normal appetites. The price was fair though my one niggle is that 10% is added to the bill as a "discretionary" service charge .... so that's not really discretionary, is it? It's a practice that I don't like though it didn't detract massively from our enjoyment of the evening. I'd definitely recommend AguaDulce for quality food, pleasant restaurateurs, great location and a good atmosphere.

If you are Spanish and feeling homesick just come to this restaurant. The food, atmosphere and service will make you feel that you are actually in Spain.
