If you fancy livening up your summer with a hit of Latin flavour then a trip to Mexico could be just the ticket. Alternatively you could simply try some top-notch Mexican restaurants. Jamie Walker has once again taken to TripAdvisor to find out where to find some of the best in Brighton.


Preston Street, Brighton

Five stars (296 reviews)

This is a very unassuming spot but one that serves excellent food in a laid back, fiesta-style atmosphere.

The relaxed setting and amazing tacos are the perfect combination. Try the sweetcorn fritters too.

Aylac2017 said: “You need to believe the hype surrounding this little gem.

“The food is always flavoursome, and they always provide amazing customer service.”

Dos Sombreros

Ship Street, Brighton

Four and a half stars (739 reviews)

Your typical Mexican cuisine is on offer here.

It is another spot for a party atmosphere and plenty of fun.

The fajitas and margaritas are what they are best known for so be sure to give them a try.

The Colonnades, Brighton

Four stars (687 reviews)

A national chain that is laid back and serves great grub.

The interior is almost pub-like, with table-top games and a relaxed seating arrangement.

There is a chilled vibe that will put you at ease as you dig in to the authentic Latin food.

Molly_fisherUK said “The quality of the food in this branch was really impressive.”

Pakal Taco Bar

St James’s Street, Brighton

Five stars, 44 reviews

This is a small spot in Kemp Town that looks like a cafe from the outside – but don’t be fooled by its appearance, this place is a hub for truly authentic Mexican food.

It has recently moved to its St James’s Street location.

Everything is beautifully authentic and fresh and one fan reported: “The staff member was so friendly, warm and genuinely cared about our experience.”

Jess_Connolly said: “Absolutely maxing food.

“Very authentic and the cocktails are great too.”

Las Iguanas

Jubilee Street, Brighton

Four stars, (676 reviews)

Another national chain that is very popular across the country with a range of food that will satisfy all tastes and flavour preferences.

You would expect a national chain to serve good food and for the most part Las Iguanas doesn’t disappoint.

“The ambience is brilliant and the food is delicious and well presented.”

La Choza

Gloucester Road and Western Road, Brighton

Four stars (915 reviews)

Some amazing Day of the Dead-inspired artwork covers the walls of this restaurant.

It is colourful and bubbly and the food matches in terms of flavour.

For small snacks or big meals this is said to be simply one of the best spots in the city.

Carlito Burrito

York Place, Brighton

Four stars (260 reviews)

Great decor is becoming a theme of these restaurants.

The look of Carlito Burrito is brilliant and the food seems to match that.

It’s usually busy and that can only be a good sign.

Lawson C said: “Great Burritos, lovely tacos and margaritas to die for. Staff were great.


North Road, Brighton

Five Stars (25 reviews)

There may not be many reviews for this restaurant, but every single one is excellent.

That’s an impressive achievement and if these early reviews are anything to go by then this could be in the running to be one of the best spots in the city.
