I have to say I've never been disappointed with the food here. Just recently tried one of the 'Especiales' - Garbanzos con Espinacas. Wow! With a glass of the best red wine in town, Pablo, you're in heaven!

Set back from the iconic Brighton seafront, Bellota is Britain's first independent cava bar serving an array of authentic Spanish tapas. Bellota restaurant fuses tradition with quirky, contemporary design, featuring a charcuterie-style counter and tavern-style dining area. A quaint patio lends itself to al fresco dining, whilst customers can sample award-winning produce, including hand carved jamón ibérico.
