On a day trip to Brighton we were dissapointed to see our fave fish & chips place had shut so we opted to go for mexican insteas. Really nice food and excellent service. Best nachos we've had in ages, recommend the mojitos too.

First time in Brighton for my partner and I, and we just pitched up and asked for a table for two....luckily, it was the quiet time between Christmas and New Year, and we were shown to our table without a reservation, but I think we were very lucky. The staff are lovely, and a bit sassy with it, which was... More

I visited with friends and the staff were very friendly and accommodating despite the fact that we turned up late, with an hour until closing time. We had chicken buffalo wings with blue cheese, nachos and also burritos. We got all the food very quickly and it was really tasty. Restaurant is lovely inside and very nicely decorated.
