Wonderful, atmospheric tapas restaurant. The specials when we visited were particularly good - oxtail stew and rabbit in garlic- bold, punchy flavours. The service is frantic but friendly and the wine list fine - mostly Rioja. We will continue to return as it provides pure foodie escapism. My favourite place in brighton.

We had dinner here and were a bit dissapointed. The time between each plate arriving was such that we had finished one dish before the next one arrived. The spicy ones wern't. Prawns that need peeling should come with a finger bowl. None offered. Price is ok but service needs improving.

The prawns and chorizo were both lovely, the mushrooms were disappointing as they were tinned not fresh, the omelette was stodgy and obviously re-heated from frozen - inedible. The rabbit was lovely and so were the olives.

Service was a bit too fast, dishes whisked quickly whereas we would have liked a more leisurely lunch. Otherwise service and value for money very good.

Would try another Spanish tapas somewhere else before going back.

Went for weekend in Brighton for my hen weekend & on our last night decided to go here for our final meal. Having past it during a stroll during the day, it looked very authentic. The staff were very friendly & helpful. The food was absolutely amazing & will definitely be returning. Thank you casa don carlos x

Visited with friends and we had an excellent time. Great selection of tapas all of which are good portions. Friendly staff, ready to advise (even not to over order - perfect). Nice selection of wines. Will visit again for sure.
