BRAVO award winners for

Eat Well for Less

Best Cheap eats brighton 2024

Luckily for us, when it comes to cheap restaurants, Brighton really delivers. And just because you’re on budget (let’s face it – most of us are!) you really don’t have to face poor quality ingredients, skimpy portions or junk food. There’s certainly no need to compromise on taste around here! 

Eat Well For Less venues are smart with their overheads, save on waste, source produce well and pass the savings on to you. We’re even more grateful for these brilliant foodie options given, let’s face it, rather straightened times. With the Eat Well For Less winners list in hand there’s no need to miss out.

And the winner of the BRAVO for Eat Well For Less goes to – Halisco. Huge congratulations to the team.

First place


With a menu of recipes created in Mexico’s Jalisco, this super-popular and affordable Preston Street restaurant is one of the most vibrant in the city. Run by a pair of dedicated brothers,  there’s a fantastic selection of Mexican street food, small plates and tacos which use seasonal ingredients and authentic spices to create that authentic flavour you love. And of course there’s fresh guacamole and tortilla chips. Through great vibe, great music, dangerously good margaritas and cold Birra Menudo into the mix and it’s little wonder you voted in droves for this Eat Well For Less 2024 winner. 

Halisco has also placed in the Best Cocktails, Best Restaurant and Best Takeaway categories.

Second place

Kemptown Village’s Nanima Asian Kitchen & Cafe is a hidden gem for food enthusiasts, serving truly delicious, authentically flavoured and wonderfully affordable pan-Asian dishes. Dishes are served cantine-style with set prices for different combinations – depending on your appetite. Catering for diverse palates, the daily-changing menu will include options like Thai curries, Chinese stir-fries, dhal, laksa or banh mi, which bring loyal customers back time and time again. You’ll be treated to warm hospitality and a relaxed dining experience too, all at a very reasonable price. 

Nanima has also placed in the Best Lunch, Most Sustainable, Best International Cuisine and Best Vegan Food categories. 

Third place

Tucked away in Brighton’s Open Market, the people behind Smorl’s houmous set out to provide delicious, affordable, vegan food and have succeeded at every turn. Serving falafel pittas, crunchy salad boxes, flavour-packed wraps, a signature falafel bolognese and more, every plant-based dish is generous, fresh and moreish as well as being wonderfully nutritious. Smorl’s is a seriously tempting option for anyone looking for great food at a great price – and that’s pretty much everyone really, isn’t it?

Smorl’s has also placed in Best Vegan Food, Best Lunch and Most Sustainable categories.
