Called in here late afternoon. Restaurant was fairly quiet. Staff were very friendly and helpful throughout our meal. Menu options were varied with some nice specials. Prices very reasonable for food and drink. Really enjoyed our meal here and would definitely return.

I love Tapas but I find most places take shortcuts. This place serves fresh and authentic food that always makes my night. The staff are friendly, funny and happy to see returning customers. P.s. get the black pudding

Could tell that we were in for a bad time when there was only 1 other table of guests. Food was rushed and obviously microwaved as half was scorching hot and the other half of the dish was ice cold. The black pudding was like...More

Dear Ben C It is nice to see that this time you have been able to not insult the waitress making sexual references. Maybe this review won't be removed then. So: - Black Pudding is imported from Andalucia, it's much different than what you might...More

We simply popped in as we were passing and what a delight we found! Our waiter was charming and the food excellent. We simply had a couple of tapas dishes each, I had Black Pudding which was excellent. We will be back!

Thank you so very much for your kind comments. It proves that it is worth to spend a little more on authentic, imported ingredient rather than make other food LOOKING authentic. Hopefully we will have you here again. All the best

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.
