Arcobaleno is a multi-faceted all-day LGBTQ+ café, bar, restaurant and event space. 

We all need a space where we can feel safe and seen, meet like-minded members of our community, and spark those serendipitous meetings with friends not yet acquainted. As Queer spaces have become fewer and further between, we want to cultivate community and connection in the Brighton scene and offer a place where everyone can feel embraced.

Our menu features something for everyone, including a unique twist on traditional breakfast dishes with Maltese flavours that are sure to delight your taste buds. Try our delicious pastizzi, ftira, or bigilla for a unique and authentic Maltese experience. We serve food all day!

We regularly run free shows on Friday & Saturday nights which have been super popular with our local community as well as local students. Come and see what all the fuss is about!

  • A word from the chef:

    A myriad of influences make up the culinary landscape of the island of Malta. As civilizations and invasions traversed the land, the traditions and tastes of neighbouring and colonising countries were gradually woven into the fabric of Maltese cuisine. You’ll find strong influences from the Italians next-door in our Sicilian staples and seasonal, rustic flavours, as well as a genuine appreciation for hearty, home-cooked food. We’ll be serving up Mediterranean style meals cooked with love—and a contemporary twist.
