Everything from start to finish was absolutely outstanding. Best new restaurant in Brighton
This was my second time at Pabellon and again their food was ecstatically delicious. The beautifully designed plates are not all about the looks, the taste is out of this world - definitely try the tuna and tortilla, the goat's cheese is a great innovation as well. If I could, I would try every single dish on the menu! The staff were lovely, welcoming and warm - almost like you feel at home but you are in this nice restaurant! Also, love the simple decor but when you discover the toilet area you see where the taste comes from, very stylish yet simple. I cannot recommend this place enough. As a Spanish tapas lover, this is by far the best in town!
Another fantastic evening!! Such perfect tapas well prepared and paired with great wines and great value too!!!
Brilliant!! Simply brilliant!! Relaxed high quality tapas at a great price with great wine! Bravo!!
Brilliant restaurant! This was my first visit. Strongly recommend booking as this place isn't big and it gets busy. Prompt service, fantastic range of Spanish wines, fantastic food and very friendly staff. Heads up - there are no menus given out. The menus are on the wall, or you can ask the staff. If you are a group of more than two, you get a table, and if two or less, you sit at the bar. Absolutely recommend if you want a quick dinner before going on somewhere else or you want to hang out with friends for an hour or two. There is something for everybody on the menu!
The restaurant was superb! The food was a complete adventure for the senses!! The calamares and beef shins were my favourite!! Staff were friendly and attentive, the chef's introductions of each dish was a lovely personal touch! I had a thoroughly enjoyable evening and will definitely be back soon, thank you Pabellon 👍😊x
Lovely staff, great service & delicious food. This is not your regular high street chain tapas restaurant. It's tastier & freshly prepared. If you're looking to feel stuffed then this isn't the place for you. BUT if you're looking for a tasty selection of small dishes, packed with flavour then Pabellon is the place for you. Try the white Rioja too its gorgeous.
Very attractive dinning room and cheerful, very efficient service. Excellent but pricey wine list and any queries about a particular wine were met with the offer of a taste - we selected a very pleasant white organic at £28, although this appeared as £30 on our bill. Our 7 dishes were well flavoured and beautifully presented. They included a crisp calamari dish with a gentle ink sauce and a perfectly seared cod steak with a robust ‘bisque’ style sauce. Our only criticism would be that the ‘local’ bread was four thin half slices of regular toasted bread and two half slices of untoasted - hesitate to say fresh. It was redeemed by an excellent tapenade and quality olive oil - not sure it warrants the £4:00 tag. The other disappointment was the lack of actual chicken meat in the delicious Pollo al ajillo - it is probably difficult for the kitchen to know if the chicken pieces are mostly bone and skin - in our case we were bone heavy and meat lite. At £30 a head, we felt we had enjoyed a stylish, tasty, if expensive, lunchtime snack.
We decided to sit at the bar area as this would extend our dining time. The waiting staff were very welcoming and friendly and the service was well paced. The added advantage of sittting at the bar means that you can see the food being prepared and presented before service which was fantastic. The passion the staff have is evident and definitely comes across in the food and wine choices. The food was outstanding and I can’t recommend this wonderful restaurant enough! We most certainly will be back!
Service was really good. Staff are very friendly and informative about the menu. The food was delicious. We ordered two tapas plates each and shared between three of us. If you were very hungry then three tapas plates each would be plenty. The crispy squid was gorgeous, really fresh squid and light crispy batter. I can't give top rating however as the pudding was a little disappointing and when I say little, it was tiny. A lot of money (£6) for three weeny little doughnuts which were slightly undercooked too. Also the acoustics are dreadful, it was really loud. Overall it was a good evening.
