You get led to believe this is some kind of Brighton institution as its been here a while, but unfortunately this restaurant relies too much on this notoriety!! It sits right in the thoroughfare of the tourists mooching around the lanes but if you lived here i have no idea why you'd waste your money. Went yesterday with my boyfriend for his birthday (he's spanish) and the food was disgusting. He was a bit offended as neither was there any spanish conversation from who I assumed was the manager, in fact he spoke english with us! As for the food, imagine if Tescos did little plates of pre-made tapas, then take it down a notch. Nothing tasted very fresh. I see that a lot of people like it, I can only imagine they havent spent much time in Spain eating authentic tapas. Everything is bumped up with bleach tasting salad straight from the 70s to make it look bigger. You could have fitted the amount of pulpo (octopus, over £6) on one fork once you'd pushed the salad aside. Terrible value and not very nice. Calamari dry, and consistency of a car tyre. It put a dampner on his birthday to be honest as we paid £43 for lunch with one drink each. Only positive is that waiting staff were friendly, but theres no love whatsoever in their food, for that, go to Ole Ole instead, we only didnt because they are shut Tuesdays!
