    Our family of four visited here on a Sunday evening. Definitley book ahead, it's small and very popular. We enjoyed a really good selection of tapas that made us feel like we were on holiday in Spain despite Storm Dennis battering Brighton outside! The portions are generous, we ordered a couple of dishes too many, but they were all so good it was ok with us as it meant we got to try more things. Highly recommended.

    Visited with my family for lunch. Three of us had the £15 menu of three tapas, and one of us ordered three tapas not on the £15 menu. When the tapas arrived they looked great, very generous in size, more like raciones. All the tapas were delicious, fresh and well cooked and presented. The calamares were excellent, tortilla yummy, and the croquetas superb. We had a jug of sangria and finished the meal was some coffee and churros. The bill was £111, including a 10% optional service charge which I was happy to pay. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. The tapas were better than many I have had in Spain. All that was missing was the sun in Brighton!

    Visited on a Tuesday evening before the Theatre and we took up their special offer (you'll need a leaflet from the Theatre Royal to get this deal). It was fantastic value for money. The staff were really friendly and efficient, we had a lovely free glass of fizz and then ordered a house white which was extraordinarily good. The food arrived very quickly and in my opinion was better than I have eaten in Spain! Top notch place, can't wait to go back!!

    Great fresh food, good white Rioja and attentive service - fritta mista, croquettes and padron peppers particularly excellent. Oh and the stuffed churros! Will definitely return. Excellent overall.

    In planning our trip to Brighton this was a restaurant we decided we wanted to visit due to the numerous excellent TA Reviews. I am very happy to say that we were not disappointed. We arrived early evening, mid week, without having pre booked a table and the restaurant was very busy. We were fortunate that a couple left a table as we entered and were seated very quickly. Good service and very good range of dishes and quality of food from the tapas menu. The food is not over expensive and they have very nice house red at less than £20 a bottle. Once again TA Reviewers served us well. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and as we are in Brighton in April with friends we will pre book a table. Recommended

    We were recommended Tinto , so gave it a try before attending a theatre performance next door. Somehow, did not have great expectations, mainly due to having been to Spain few times and had fantastic tapas there. Wrong ! From the welcome, sangria and the food , all was perfect! Highlights were the cod, meat balls and ham croquettes, not to mention the Churros which we shared as rather full at that point. 3 tapas each are more than sufficient! Even two of you go for a starter / dessert . We will return to try the paella, looked absolutely appetising! Booking essential . Enjoy!

    Really nice food and house wine, with plenty of gluten-free options clearly marked on the menu. Would particularly recommend the patatas bravas and the chorizo!

    I really can't fault Tinto Taperia: the food and wines are excellent and good value. The ambiance and sound levels are just right. Above all, the staff are charming and the service is perfect - they are always on hand just when you want them.

    Visited here before heading to a gig, found this little gem after searching reviews for Brighton restaurants and saw this one had glowing reports and they weren't wrong! Absolutely delicious tapas, we ordered quite a few dishes and even a special from the board, it was busy for 3pm but a very pleasant atmosphere, servers are friendly and toilets lovely and clean. Will be back soon!

    Five star review for a five star restaurant. Service was fast and attentive without being pestering or overbearing. The food was authentic Spanish cuisine, full of flavour and worth every penny. Very affordable considering the ambience, service and quality. We will be visiting again, but make sure to make a reservation!

    Knowledgeable and friendly staff, not to mention incredible food. The staff really do take care of you hear, they take into consideration what you want and deliver. The food really was a taste of Spain.

    Restaurant location excellent as situated next door to the Theatre Royal in central Brighton.Small intimate place,traditionally decorated, with regular tables but also high stools as well. The service is friendly and attentive and the menu is traditional and reasonably priced.The size of each dish was quite substantial and very flavoursome.The only criticism is that the Gambas Pil Pil were cooked in too much oil for our palate.We booked the table for 6 p.m and by 7 p.m the restaurant was full so very popular.Would return and perhaps to sit outside on the patio in the summer months

    Freezing weather + hungry bellies = enticed in by the warmth and ambience we were very pleasantly surprised. Great hospitality and great food. Only gripe, small portions for price. Also, being that we both work in hospitality we couldn't help but notice the spotless kitchen (very important)! A well run restaurant. Thanks heaps

    A very nice tapas bar in central Brighton. A good selection of dishes with helpful polite staff. All the dishes we had were tasty and well presented. Portions for some a little small for the price. A nice wine list too. Would go again

    Having followed this restaurant on Instagram for a while, we were finally able to visit and were not disappointed! We hadn't booked but called in to see if there was any chance of a table, they were full but we left our number and fortunately we got a table around 9pm on Saturday night. The staff were attentive and the food was all delicious. There was a great atmosphere and we all really enjoyed it. By far, some of the tastiest tapas we have had for a while, we will definately be back!
