So, the food is great! I have been there a few times and everything I had was great. The atmosphere and the service though not so much. I understand it is a busy restaurant and it is a small place so you will be a bit 'cosy' when eating. But sitting four people at a table that would comfortably sit... More

You might be frustrated if you're looking for a table at a specific time, we just got put on a waiting list and waited for a call! That's just how they roll, so plan your visit with it in mind. The food is intensely tasty, no matter what you choose and the staff are always on hand to tempt you... More

Simply the best Mexican food in Brighton, excellent choice and service, The Burrito's are quite simply delicious and satisfying, very filling. the theme of the place is authentic too, it feels like a Bodega or something, easy to forget it's in the middle of town! Quite simply an excellent place to dine.10/10.

Nothing particularly flashy but so wholesome and delicious. We went for some nachos, a prawn burrito bowl and a pulled pork burrito and some cocktails and everything was so good. Friendly service but nothing OTT. Quick, cheery and will definitely return on my next visit.

A group of 12 of us went to La Choza to celebrate my birthday. We all left saying we will definitely be going back again! We shared a range of the different nachos then mains. I had the achiote chicken quesadilla which was delicious! Brilliant independent, proper Mexican dining with great staff and amazing food.

My friend and I came to have a meal just randomly. We searched Mexican food and La Choza was the first place to come up. Being a non-chain restaurant we were skeptical at first but considering it looked very busy we thought it must be nice. There was a wait of about 15 minutes but the host took my number... More

Not a massive menu but still plenty to choose from. Very well cooked and presented food, fresh and tasty. Great atmosphere, fun Day of the Dead decor. Some nice fresh juices would be good. Would lovely something like this local to me and would visit regularly. Decent gluten free choices.

Went to Brighton for the weekend and came across this place. Had to wait 20 mins for a table but it was definitely worth it! The guy doing drinks and taking the bookings was so friendly and all the staff there were really helpful. The food was absolutely delicious, maybe even one of the best meals I've had! Really fresh...
