Delicious vegetarian food. Sticky toffee pudding was delightful
Lovely food, and nice atmosphere.
Fabulous little vegetarian restaurant. Well located in central Brighton. Atmospheric and cosy.
Amber, our waitress was an absolute delight, helping with our menu and generally being on hand despite it being an extremely bysy evening.
I have been coming to Food For Friends for over 15 years now and I am never disappointed. The food is of a consistently high standard and there's always something different on the menu every time I come here, as well as regulars which reappear in revised versions. Most dishes are available as a vegan option, so there is always plenty of choice. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone who appreciates good food, vegetarian or otherwise.
Menu is so small now, food is still good but not amazing like it was a few years ago.
Had a lovely birthday meal! Great atmosphere. Delicious unique food and amazing presentation. Great service, with birthday truffles on the house. Will definitely be coming back.
I had a great time at food for friends - the service was great and our waiter Manuel was amazing. He was happy to help us with anything and created a really nice, open and friendly atmosphere.
Would recommend this place to all my friends.
Well worth the trip down from London! Could not recommend FFF enough!!!!! :) 12/10!!!
I'd seen the Christmas menu and all the rave reviews online and decided the only Christmas dinner I'm able to eat this year (due to medical reasons) should be at Food For Friends. So we went down last Sunday to have a very early Christmas feast.
Unfortunately due to an administrative error the staff had failed to appreciate this would be the only time I would be able to eat a Christmas meal, and unfortunately the Christmas menu wasn't yet available.
I explained to the staff the details of my medical issue and that my dad had flow in specially from oversees to spend time with me so we could enjoy Christmas early and they went out of their way to make it a Christmas meal to remember. The food was divine, we had a full 3 course meal, starting with their beetroot soup, the vegan roast (with the addition of brussel sprouts to make it more christmassy) and vegan chocolate mousse and truffles to finish; all washed down with a wonderful bottle of organic prosecco!
Although there was the initial hiccup ALL of the restaurant staff made me feel like an absolute princess, we had Christmas crackers, candy canes and a Christmas card signed by all the staff :)
I'm hoping that the medical treatment works and my dad has already promised me the first solid food I'm going to have when I get better will be at Food for Friends!
Thank you all for being so amazing, you bought the true meaning of Christmas to me on the 2nd December!
love and good wishes to you all!!
Amazing Vegan and vegetarian Sunday roast. Highly recommended but make sure you book.
Very good food and service and would recommend even if you’re not vegetarian
Good food and good atmosphere all local products and nice service recommended, we will be back 🙂
The most delicious food I've had the pleasure of eating in absolutely ages! Fresh, packed full of flavour, well presented!
Great place if you’re after something tasty that’s not run of the mill
Really good atmosphere and pleasant service. Food was average overall. The mushrooms were very tasty but the halloumi burger was heavy and not as expected. However it was a cosy and enjoyable evening overall.
Great experience and lovely food . Just wish they did the sharing plateau for 2 persons as a starter .
Amazing food. I had a salad and it was delicious. I was not disappointed with my healthy choice.
We were recommended here by friends and and ate here last thing on thursday. I cannot thank them enough. Gorgeous food, really prettilly presented by super friendly and attentive staff. Definitely a must eat venue and we wil definitly go back.
Very innovative vegetarian and vegan food. Plenty of options for five dining which aren't just poor imitations of meat based foods.
We had a very good evening. Each of the dishes were prepared with care.The cocktails were lovely too!
Booked for my partners birthday, it was great, the food was AMAZING! our waitress was Brilliant and the local Sussex wine on the menu was so nice that i took a picture so I can buy it. Highly recommended and not highly priced either.
Lovely evening. Great staff. Good is always better than expected. :-)
We had the sharing platter, olives,bread skinny fries and cheese cake to follow. The cheese cake wasn’t to my taste very gritty but everything else was very good. Organic Prosecco also good.
We had a great meal, absolutely perfect. We ate quite late in the afternoon so very quiet in the restaurant.
Service was quick and efficient. Very enjoyable and will return.
Delicious food and lovely staff. Would highly recommend!
The sharing platter was delicious, especially the scotch egg. Would love the recipe!
Great service, lovely lovely food, staff very helpful, my only slight complaint is the toilets weren’t very well kept.
Service not great on 2 occasions - manager quite offish when complained - food fairly good but expensive for what it is.
Absolutely amazing food - I just don't know how they come up with the flavours. I love that the food is fancy but the feel of the restaurant is smart casual. Lovely, friendly staff. Great for special occasions.
Fantastic food, service and overall attention to detail. Reasonably priced for the level of quality. We had a really lovely lunch!
Staff helpful chatty charming
Gave good advice on what to eat
Nice food at Sunday lunchtime with imaginative and tasty choices. Clear menu with options for vegans and those with allergies. Service was friendly and efficient perhaps even too speedy with no gap between courses to chat. Could have felt more leisurely and relaxed for Sunday lunch. Tables quite closely packed in and ours was behind delivery door so no view for people watching which is part of the fun.
I had been to the restaurant before but this time the selection of food & the actual food was disappointing.
Unfortunately one dish was cold when served as were the chips 🍟 although this was dealt with extremely quickly and compensation was given re chocolates to share and a free glass of wine
Great options for vegans and nice choice on menu. However food quality wasn't great - chips were undercooked, halloumi and mushroom burger was ok, but not worth the high price. Range of ice-cream flavours was vanilla, chocolate and strawberry, so not much choice there.
Lovely food, overall a good option, interesting menu, well presented
Very enjoyable evening and lovely food. Staff were excellent, our waitress was particularly friendly. The 'Birthday girl' on our table was made to feel special. Good to have a vegetarian menu. Although we do not live in the area we will return to this restaurant when next in Brighton.
Amazing food, great service. Lovely decor, a very good night for us.
Food For Friends never disappoints! Always friendly staff and ambience but most importantly incredible food. Veggie and vegan options available and they make dietary requirements (e.g. gluten free) clear on the menu. Great for date nights and special occasions. I've taken my partner for her birthday two years in a row now and we always have a great experience.
Good, but not as good as I remember. Food was good but not great, service ok but rushed for food slow for drinks. Was one of my best. Now fab but not sparkling
Fabulous food, great atmosphere and helpful and friendly staff. Great for vegetarians but one of our party is a carnivore who also thoroughly enjoyed her meal. Would definitely go again.
