About Circo

Dear diners, please be aware that bookings for one or two people will be seated at the chef’s table. If you would like a regular table please contact the restaurant directly.

Spanish cuisine is exciting and vibrant, and it makes for fantastic, sociable evenings when lots of small plates can be shared with friends and family. The story of Circo began in Ibiza – the famous White Isle – where the team were inspired by proper tapas and the role food plays in everyday Spanish life. This, combined with tastes of Southeast Asia, makes the modern tapas experience at Circo one of the most unique in Brighton. Situated on Preston Road in Brighton’s London Road area, Circo attracts food-loving locals and tourists alike – avoid having to wait by booking a table in advance!

More about Circo, Brighton

Circo is all about colourful, vibrant and real food. Lee Shipley is the man behind this Brighton jewel who, inspired by the White Isle of Ibiza and plenty of travelling around Southeast Asia, began experimenting with flavour combinations. The result is this adventurous modern tapas restaurant and bar. Circo’s mission is to create food that is fresh and bursting with flavour. It aims to push the boundaries of what you might expect from Spanish cuisine and show the hungry folk of Brighton what real tapas is all about. Situated on Preston Road in Brighton’s London Road area, Circo has become the number one destination for curious foodies from all across the city.

Circo brings people together with an array of inventive dishes that are perfect for sharing, just as Spanish food should be. The menu changes daily – a sure sign of quality – so it’s difficult to suggest particular dishes. Nonetheless, expect variations in the way of volcano chicken thighs, potato and caper tortillas, lemongrass haloumi and flaming whisky prawns to name a few. Circo in Brighton’s London Road area is a taste sensation you simply can’t miss.
