I had a really nice double date here with some friends of mine. Despite being very small inside and the chairs not being particularly comfortable, the atmosphere was really nice; cosy and fun. The food was delicious. I would recommend the seafood platter, the fried goats cheese and Caramelised onions and the classic chorizo. Good wine, good food, good service.... More

Firstly, the food is excellent. Patatas bravas in blue cheese sauce and the lamb stew tastes lovely- the red organic wine tastes too good and has left me with a hangover on more than one occasion! The staff are all very friendly and keep the drink and food coming regularly. However as mentioned in previous reviews don't expect fancy furnishings!!... More

My wife and I ate here on a Friday night, the restaurant is tiny with everyone packed into a space no bigger than a reasonably sized front room. We ordered a range of tapas and settled back to enjoy. Things started to go amiss when we received a jug of Sangria that we had not ordered, however we decided to... More

Have enjoyed good food and service here but on this last visit was disappointed at the service. On a busy Friday evening the staff appeared to lose focus and we felt , that as we were in the back area, we were slightly neglected. Also the food was not up to normal standard.

It's a small cute restaurant, not many tables that's why I think is got that homely feeling. I've been there few times and I end up spending few hrs eating and drinking being very relaxed. The wine is good and they have a good selection. Taps are very nice and having a lot of intolerances they are always very helpful... More

There are hundreds of restaurants to choose from in Brighton but every time we visit, we have to come to this place. It never disappoints. The tapas is delicious - I'm certain you wouldn't find better in Spain, and the staff are delightful. We had the set tapas menu for 3 plus a couple of extra dishes and everything was... More

Having used Casa Don Carlos before numerous times and not being able to get a table, thought we'd give here a go. Firstly they didn't have my table reservation. Luckily it wasn't busy Secondly don't go here with a bad back (as I have) eating dinner on low hard stools nearly killed me. Now to the food. Really no complaints.... More

Visited here late December for a Christmas night out. First time eating here based on recommendations from friends. Very small and intimate restaurant so I'd say good for couples etc but not for big groups or anything over 4 people! Fantastic selection of tapas available and only wish I could have tried everything on the menu! Will have to return... More
