Mediterranean
A warm Mediterranean welcome from our family run tavern.

Hospitality like no other with flavours ranging from as far west as Portugal, moving through Spain, South of France, Italy and reaching the eastern coast of Greece. Through our tasting menu you can experience the different influences on our cuisine.






Found in The Lanes of Brighton, conrner of Hanningtons Lane & Meeting House Lane, we will be cooking up a storm in our yard. We welcome you to enjoy a few of our small plates & to sip a glass of wine under our gnarly aged olive trees.

So, if you looking for a place to eat in Brighton, Lanes, with a great outside garden, or get cozy indoors for drinks & a bite...
look no further.

Enjoy our Wine, Tapas & Steaks

This was our 3rd visit to this lovely resturant. It's perfect for a family meal or catch up with friends. The staff are lovely & never rush you to order. The food and drink selection is very good. My only suggestion to them would be to change the hand dryer dryer to paper towels especially at this moment in time.

We liked the home cooked style of the food here. Flavours are good too. However there is a real lack of green. There's no side salads and there's no simply steamed green vegetables. The food is either fried or stewed. I wouldn't go here again until they make the menu less brown and more green. The people who work in this place seem pleasant. Some patio heaters for outside winter dining would be good.

Opened in September 2015, it was a wonderful experience for my partner and I. Very good service, high quality food at very reasonable prices and a very nice atmosphere. Had a chat with the owner, Alex and he was very welcoming and friendly. The restaurant is setup to also take large bookings, has a balcony for private hire and a courtyard for the summer. Highly recommended mediterranean food. Thank you for dinner.
