“Time travel to Spain!”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Brighton. Not only is the food really great but the atmosphere just transports you to Spain in an instant! I forget that I'm in England, which is a good thing on a grey wintery day. Lovely staff and great music too!

“Authentic Tapas & Atmosphere”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

been eating here for over 15 years now. Always good. Great atmosphere. This is real tapas; not the anglicized stuff offered by la tasca and other chains. Quality is consistently good; service excellent and prices are really reasonable. For example, olives, bread, 7 tapas (inc daily specials), Estrella beers and a bottle of excellent house rioja £65 inc tip! We couldn't eat another mouthful. Very reasonable indeed. All tastes are catered for: meat, chicken, seafood, sides are all freshly prepared and really tasty. For a day "trip" to Spain (especially on a wet winter Uk day) look no further!.We know of no better tapas bar in the UK.

“Delicious food and attentive service”
Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

Food was quite simply superb. The olives were nothing short of amazing. The only item I could fault was the bread. Whilst fresh it would have been great to have something a little more inspiring. However this does not stop me from saying this is among the best restaurant food I have had.

“Great Tapas”
Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

Have visited a few times for lunch and went for dinner last night. Great atmosphere, friendly service and good food, which was well cooked. Would have been top marks but only little gripe was about the quality of the bread.

Just returned from a wonderful tapas lunch in Casa Don Carlos celebrating the birthday of a friend who lives in Brighton.

Great service and wonderful atmosphere. The food was excellent.

Will bring more family and friends on the next occasion.
