I love coming to El Mexicano! Whenever my friends are in town I take them there, and it’s always great food and a great experience!

Perfect from start to finish

We came across El Mexicano whilst looking for somewhere to eat before seeing Muse in the Brighton Dome. What a find! We shared Quesadillas and Queso Fundido for starters, wonderful dishes! So tasty and well cooked. We then had chili con carne and chicken enchiladas. Both dishes were amazing, my companion commented that it was the best chili he’d ever eaten and my enchiladas were delicious! We had 3 alcoholic drinks each, one being a mojito cocktail, and still the bill was only just over £50. A real bargain and a very tasty one at that! If we are ever in Brighton again we will be sure to visit again as the food was superb. Thank you!
