Ate here twice while in Brighton this year. First time ordered chef special assortment - absolutely great. Nice variety and enough to eat for two of us. Went back a week later for lunch and was not disappointed. Very friendly staff - very cozy place.

Loved this restaurant. A little bit of Spain - and a realistic bit - here in Brighton. Food was good, wine was good and service was helpful and charming. It is small and cosy and was packed on our mid week visit. Definitely go again.

We stumbled on this charming place late in the afternoon as it was starting to rain. They had a good selection of tapas including more vegetarian and vegan choice that you might find in Spain, making our vegan daughter happy. The boquerones were very good,...More

Tapas have become a bit of a food cliche, so it's nice to come across a restaurant that prepares them with expertise and pride. The server recommended a very good Rioja to start. The albondigas (meatballs) we ordered were served with a rich and subtle...More

Having tried other tapas restaurants in Brighton, I was reluctant to be let down and ripped off yet again with tastes miniscule portions and inflated prices. This restaurant really is the exception to others. A rustic interior takes you to what could be an off...More
