But it's what you do then that counts. Despite living 25 miles away we're pretty regular at Dos Soms, in fact I think my wife would eat here every night. Saturday night we were a group of 10 visiting after an afternoon concert. All was going well, we'd had a couple of drinks and some lovely nachos to start and... More

Visited Dos Sombreros on a trip to Brighton. Amazing frontage which makes you want to go in, decorated with a Mexican feel, staff very friendly and helpful. Busy, buzzing with a relaxed atmosphere. We had nachos to share which was delicious, lots of nachos, cheese with salsa, soured cream and guacamole on the top. I had the chicken and chorizo... More

Just stumbled across this place by accident, but so glad we did! The food is amazing, it's a quirky independent restaurant, with great decor and authentic Mexican food! We left completely full, very reasonably priced. Will be back next time we're in brighton

Wide choice on menu. Food delicious, fresh, hot and very tasty. We had burritos and fajitas - excellent and good portion sizes. Churros delicious! Staff friendly and efficient adding to the buzzy and welcoming atmosphere. Mid range price and a very pleasant couple of glasses of red wine went down very well too. Definitely worth a visit.

On a rainy day in Brighton we needed somewhere quick and easy to eat. We popped in here for a burrito and some beer and wasn't disappointed

Great to eat at restaurants that are not part of a chain. This one provides great food served by interesting and helpful staff. We all enjoyed the nachos and the enchiladas with cocktails and red wine. A good location close to the beach and the lanes helps.

Needed a good dinner before going to The Brighton Centre, and wanted to avoid a chain. This did not disappoint. The cajun salmon and sweet potato fries (fish n chips) were perfect, and the enchilada was up there with the best. The service was friendly and efficient, and the resturant was homely and comfortable. We will be back next time... More
