Went for the £11 lunch tapas deal. Small glass of wine and choice of two tapas. We had patata bravas, chorizo and gambas, paella and croquetas. All tasty and great value.

Great lunchtime offer of 2 tapas and glass of wine for just under £10. Generous portion and tasty tapas - decent wine but mainly central location to sit out and people watch.

El Mexicano sits in the heart of Brighton's theatre district and prides itself on being the only authentic Mexican restaurant in the area. Buzzy atmosphere is fueled by vibrant Latin vibes, music, cocktails and food. Authentic Mexican cuisine and Spanish tapas is the order of the day, including Enchiladas, mole, sea-food paellas and fajitas. After your meal, visit Valentino, the art deco style bar upstairs, which is licensed until 2am.
