The choice was from 6 starter and 4 main courses and includes a glass of wine or a beer. We chose a generous portion of lentil and pork stew (starter) risotto and seafood paella for our main. The kitchen closes at 2.30.

Booked for a Friday night, restaurant was busy but the service was very good. Wait for ordering, drinks and food never felt like it was too long. The food was very good and I'd recommend a visit here if you are ever in Brighton.
