Chamuyo Argentinian Restaurant Brighton


62 Middle Street

☎️ 01273 748448


Eva and I only just heard about Chamuyo (slang meaning to "sweet talk" someone) last week (it has been open for almost a year), and went there for the first time on Friday night.


Chamuyo is a lively, busy cheerful restaurant. As the autumn sets in I would recommend you ask for a table away from the door (which was open to keep the staff cool).


The menu has an excellent selection of Argentinian steaks and meats including, rib-eye, fillet, chicken etc.


The service is friendly, professional and efficient.


Eva started with the chorizo Spanish Red Chorizo cooked in Malbec wine, with caramelised red onions. This was piquant and flavoursome, it was an excellent starter.

She then opted for the sirloin steak, a tender chargrilled succulent piece of meat that was full of flavour. I would note that the accompanying chimichurri sauce was a tad oily for our taste.

I started with Morcilla (black pudding), a plump succulent pudding that had been braised not fried. It was lovely.

I then had the 350 gram rib-eye steak. This was exceptionally flavoursome, with just the right amount of fat. It cut like butter!

My only criticism of the rib-eye, was that it was served on a wooden platter (a pet hate of mine); this means any juices either dribble off the side or are soaked up by the wood.

The bill, which included, service, wine and several sambucas (health and safety prevent them flaming them) came to £117.

Overall Opinion

We will most assuredly be going again, but next time I will ask for my steak to be served on a plate ;).

Don't Fuck With Traditional Italian Cuisine!

Full agree with the chef here.

BTW, that also means to don't put cream into carbonara!
