Really friendly staff, great tasting food, good atmosphere, we booked in at opening time and things very quickly got busy, so I would definitely suggest booking before arrival, I cant for the life of me remember what we ate apart from scotch egg and pork belly tacos, both of which were amazing, we also had another taco and some other starters, oh and some churros, each dish was amazing, really, really tasty, got some tequilla shots with the meal as well. Only thing I would say is you probably need 3/4 tacos each to feel full as they are a bit small but at £8 each things start to get expensive, overall though really tasty, great experience, Ali was the man in charge and was very attentive, highly recommend
The staff here were amazing, attentive and friendly - cant fault them.
The place itself was cool and funky, but the food...was a little lacking. The sweet potato croquet were 5/5 but the rest was a little disappointing.
The chorizo scotch egg came with corse salt on top whitch wasn't necessary when chorizo is salty anyway, the salsa and guacamole needed the salt or something as they were a little bland and the taco's all tasted the same. For us the food was just a little disappointing.
I went here based on the reviews but unfortunately was slightly underwhelmed. The decor and vibe are very cool I’ll say. Another positive was that the tacos were very good, homemade tortilla chips as well were really nice. The bad was there was No kids menu so found it hard to feed my little ones. Very limited menu. Also found it a bit pricy for what we got and we left still a bit hungry. Everyone was friendly but it took a while to get drinks and had to keep trying to get someone’s attention for bill and to amend order. Overall it was good, not great.
Wonderful food, so fresh and tasty! We tried things we've never had before, like grilled squid tacos, and they were incredible! Thank you so much for giving us an unforgettable meal.
We came here for my 18th birthday and will definitely be returning! The service was excellent - Ali was so helpful with recommending the best dishes, and even threw in a few appetizers on the house! He also made my night by adding on free churros (with a candle as well!)
The appetizers were also delightful - particularly the chicken croquettes, chorizo scotch egg, and sweetcorn fritters. The margaritas were also phenomenal and would recommend the hibiscus specifically.
For our main course, we ordered the pork tacos, which were flavourful, tender and far superior to any I'd ever had before. We also had the squid and halloumi tacos, which were equally delectable - I'd still choose the pork ones every time though!
Halisco is perfect for groups or a family dinner. I would recommend to anyone looking for an authentic Mexican restaurant with delicious food and excellent staff. Thanks for making it such a memorable birthday!
We were staying nearby overnight and just walked in to this Mexican restaurant and were happy to be seated,I didn’t understand the menu or the setup but was soon enlightened, the food here was quite simply the best Mexican food I have ever eaten.
Thank you and we will be making a special trip to Brighton just to eat here again. 5 stars!
Looked for a resturant to represent my love for my partner and trump. Really close to local trump supporters #makechristmasgreatagain
We went to eat in Halisco, a small restaurant specializing in Mexican food.
The environment immersed you in the world of Mexico, which from one moment to the other I would have been involved in a battle between Mexican gangs.
The waiter was very hospitable and friendly which seemed to have known each other for 20 years.
The food...really good, cheap and fresh.
At the time of payment, the waitress told us that she would only accept cash... But where did we end up!?! In Zimbabwe???
Mannaggia all'anima dei Messicani e quelli stra muort' dei Mariachi!
Amazing Mexican. Authentic and tasty. Great service. Would recommend for any date or family visit. Absolutely delicious and a real hidden gem in Brighton. Front of house was top notch. Can’t wait to come again.
Absolutely excellent food, and superb and knowledgeable service. The drinks are delicious, highly recommend sampling the mezcal and the margheritas. The pork belly taco is second to none!!!
We were a large group of 12 and made to feel so welcome. We were offered the whole function room at no extra cost, allowed to play our own music, dim the lights and generally make the space our own. Ali waited on us and was so helpful with what to choose from the menu and threw in extras for our vegan guest. He also made our night by bringing down a good few bottles and deserts on the house. Fantastic atmosphere, lovely owners and the food was fantastic. We specifically requested spicy margaritas which were not on the menu but we were not let down. The scotch bonnet margaritas are definitely a winner! Made my birthday night very special. There are very few gems like this in Brighton - this place is definitely #1! Thanks Ali!
Came for our friends birthday and the food was amazing! They were so accommodating for our party and Ali was particularly great! Thanks for a great evening
Food was awesome. Great prices and well prepared dishes. Tapas style, lots of cool little sides. Tacos are supreme. The pork belly taco is elite and should be advertised as the chefs special.
The service is super friendly, helpful and they managed to get all orders right all evening despite such a large group! The server Ali is an absolute champion.
We had a brilliant meal at Haliscos for my friends birthday - it is worth a visit when in Brighton!!!
Incredible food. Super accommodating, friendly staff. Cannot recommend this place enough. Ali is a legend!
The service was great, our waiter Ali was lovely and looked after us so well. Tacos and plates were so delicious. Such a lovely night!
Was really impressed with the atmosphere and the staff food was spot on 100% would recommend to friends and family for a night of good food and friendly service
This is a fabulous little restaurant which serves reasonably priced, delicious Mexican food. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful too. I was a bit dubious at first as it’s basic to look at but visited with my son and his partner who had been before. Wouldn’t hesitate to go again but be aware it’s cash only.
Bottomless Brunch with a large group....food was AMAZING...kept on coming....all the guac....all the beans...all the chips....all the dips....all the prosec....great staff
Deeeeeeeeeelicous. Tasty chicken. Chicken. It wants me to write more words however I believe very tasty chicken is suffice. We came for a bottomless and they were really accommodating (obviously)
