Wahaca Brighton

One of the most noted across the town's restaurant scene and a Mexican restaurant by The Lanes in Brighton, the Wahaca menu is Central American-inspired through and through. The street food-style offering includes the likes of slow-cooked brisket, vegan tostadas and avo-chicken quesadillas, while bigger meals come in the form of gut-busting burritos.

Carlito Burrito

Injecting some fun into our list of best restaurants in Brighton for Mexican food? Carlito Burrito. This colourful venue is not only known for award-winning street food like burritos, nachos, tacos and quesadillas, but also the bar - serving the best margs, mezcal sips or beers from Mexico.


After an authentic pick for a Mexican restaurant in Brighton? Casazul has to be up there for its tiny menu of tacos at an Open Market location. A really highly rated spot, this is worth a visit for both vegan choices and meaty moments galore.
