We have eaten here a few times but yesterday three of us had a fabulous meal. With a view to the West Pier, i360, friendly and engaging service, easy parking, this is definitely in my top ten of restaurants in Brighton, maybe top three! Desert was an absolutely delight😜😜😜thoroughly recommendable.

We took over the ground floor of the restaurant for a business meal, enjoyed excellent food and attentive staff in a relaxed atmosphere. Planning was easy and adaptable to our specific requests on menus, timings etc. Highly recommended.

I hired the venue for my Husbands 50th. We had around 100 guests from various countries. I choose the venue because of the location - but one is bound to be a bit nervous about putting on a party this of this size. However, I can say the whole event was fantastic. Alexandra guided me through the arrangements in the... More

We had such a perfect wedding at Alfresco in September. Glorious sunshine and delicious food, right on Brighton beach. So many guests commented on what a wonderful venue it was and I was so happy that the chef was able to put together so many wonderful vegan options for me. Thank you so much to the Alfresco team. If you're... More

Lovely airey restaurant in wonderful position on the front along from Regency Square and the i 360. Had a lunch of lasagne, which hit the spot. I have been here on an evening too and it's a place with a great atmosphere, attentive staff, a good traditional Italian menu, it comes highly recommended.

We were staying in the Kings Hotel which is nearly opposite and fancied eating at alfresco as it looked very attractive at night, all glass with blue lighting, what was even better it catered for Gluten Free requirements and only a couple of dishes could not be ordered. We both enjoyed our dishes very much, we had fish chowder &... More
