La Choza is Brighton’s first authentic Mexican Street Food restaurant, nestled in the heart of the North Laine. A simple menu is served, where you choose between burritos, tacos, quesadillas and tostadas before picking from one of the mouth-watering fillings and sauces to go in it. La Choza is excellent for a quick lunch on the go, or you can sit in and try the delicious selection of frozen cocktails. Most of the menu is priced between £5 – £7.50, so this place is perfect if you are on a budget.
One of the most popular restaurants in Brighton, Food for Friends, located in The Lanes, has been serving delicious food to residents of the city and its visitors since 1981. The ingredients are locally sourced where possible, and the menu offers tasty and affordable dishes, with gluten-free and vegan options available.

Family run by two brothers, Adelfia invites you to experience authentic Greek cuisine in the heart of Brighton.

Donatello is a vibrant, family-run Italian restaurant that has been part of Brighton’s restaurant scene for many years. They serve authentic Italian food made with fresh ingredients and at reasonable prices. The portions are very generous, and plenty of space exists for large groups. They can accommodate close to 400 people inside and 50 people al fresco. They also have over 20 vegetarian options available.
‘The Restaurant’ was Brighton’s highest-scoring restaurant in The Good Food Guide 2011, and it’s easy to see why. This venue is located in the rather swish Drakes seafront hotel, attracting the Brighton glitterati and visiting celebs. ‘The Restuarant’ serves exquisite modern European cuisine with a twist. The evening ambience is calm, with dimmed lights and candles all lending themselves perfectly for a romantic dining experience. During the daytime, it’s the perfect stop for a special lunch with friends.
One of our favourite places to visit as often as possible. Casa Don Carlos is popular throughout the day and evening, so always book to guarantee a table—a small restaurant but big on taste and great atmosphere. Excellent quality, traditional Spanish tapas served by friendly and happy staff that make you smile. A delightful and fun place to dine.
Serving small plates in an industrial-style space with an open kitchen, this restaurant was voted Best Restaurant in the Brighton Top 20 Awards in 2016 and 2017. Located in The Lanes and owned by Great British Menu 2017 winner chef Michael Bremner, 64 Degrees offers exciting dishes accessible to everyone. We encourage you to dive into the experience of excellent service and outstanding food on your next trip to Brighton.
Located in the heart of the Laines, the Chilli Pickle has established itself as the place to go for Brighton curry lovers. Being a bustling, family-friendly restaurant, we highly recommend booking. Voted as one of the country’s top 30 Asian restaurants, it’s easy to see the reason for its popularity.
Part of the Ginger group of restaurants, including Ginger Fox, Ginger Pig & Ginger Dog, the Gingerman is, in our opinion, the finest of the four. Looking around, you can see the delight and ecstasy on the faces of the other diners. It’s where you want to crane your neck to see what others are eating because you simply don’t want to miss out. Service is impeccable, and the chef is at hand to make recommendations or answer questions. A small but perfectly formed restaurant which will leave you feeling like you’ve had THE meal of your life
