Food for Friends
The restaurant caters for people with special dietary needs, there are vegan and gluten-free options for many dishes on the menu, as well as freshly baked vegan and gluten-free breads, cakes and scones every day.
Varied and imaginative veggie food all beautifully prepared
Whilst the food was fine and the general ambience ok we found the service poor. The first course came reasonable swiftly, but we ordered a sweet, which still hadn't come after twenty minutes. It was a straightforward pudding with little preparation required. I asked the waitress where it was and she seemed confused. I asked for the bill, and cancelled the pudding. The (I think Duty Manager) came up to me with profuse apologies, and explained that the ticket had got out of order and that was the reason for the delay. However, my suspicion is that the waitress forgot to place the order. To be fair, the duty manager did offer us a free drink by way of apology, but by that time we were fed up and just wanted to go. We have been to Food for Friends several times and not had an experience like this before, so I'm not saying I don't recommend it, and I did leave a tip because my belief is that the money is shared out among the staff, so it wouldn't be fair to the ones who were doing their job because of one person who wasn't. It will be a while before we return.
Beautiful and calm atmosphere, accommodating and friendly staff and most importantly the food is phenomenal. The risotto and brownie with pistachio gelato is some of the best food I've ever had. Worth every single penny.
I booked Food for Friends to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food was superb and service was excellent. I definitely come back here again!
Really enjoyed our meal …and appreciated the special effort made for my friend’s 50 th birthday
As someone who has been a vegetarian for 8 years, I can honestly say vegetarian restaurant food can be very one note. This is not the case at Food for Friends, it was clear that allot of thought had been put into creating vegetarian dishes with a variety of yummy flavours and different textures in the perfect balance. This is thoughtful and interesting vegetarian food that could satisfy even meat lovers. The lively but relaxed atmosphere was perfect for a lunchtime setting.
I went to this restaurant with my boyfriend to celebrate my 21st birthday and we both had an amazing evening! The staff were lovely, the food was excellent quality and the portion sizes were great. The staff went the extra mile and gave me a birthday dessert which I wasn't expecting. Overall a great restaurant and evening :)
Incredible vegan food with lots of interesting dishes to choose from. Would really recommend the crispy tofu starter and roasted roots salad- very tasty and filling! Amazing and friendly service. I'd come again!
I love this restaurant. The food is always very tasty and the menu varied. Being vegetarian its also good for you!
Lovely service and fabulous food. Will certainly come again, but next time order less food :)
Another wonderful experience at Food For Friends. Service was impeccable, food was beautifully presented and delicious. The cost reflects the venue, service and food quality.
Always delicious food, well presented. Good value for money. Would highly recommend.
Very highly recommend. The food, location and atmosphere are always excellent. Never fails to delight.
Very enjoyable evening with great service & very tasty food & cocktails
Great food, lovely flavours. Great service will go again
I had taken a friend here for her birthday. It was my first time at Food for Friends and it was a wonderful experience. Each dish was delicious, presented beautifully and were good sized protions. The staff were so friendly (but not intrusive) and the prices were very good. I will definitely be coming back here.
Good quality and beautifully presented food. Attentive and friendly service
Interesting menu, great service, fresh food, sat in the window watching the world go by - what’s not to love!
Having read good reviews for this restaurant for vegan food we thought we would try it for our anniversary weekend. The lady serving us was from Norway, very helpful and a pleasure to talk to. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. We really appreciated the anniversary treat, very kind.
We will becoming here again when next in Brighton.
Best food experience we’ve had in a long time! Highly recommend
The setting and the environment was welcoming and pleasant.
The initial service was fairly prompt for the drinks, starter and main. There was a substantial delay from ordering to receiving deserts/ coffee.
The main courses were flavourless for all choices. We could not complete the food.
The starters were good as were the deserts.
This is THE best place to eat in Brighton. Every time seems to be better than the last! Never fails to impress.
What an amazing restaurant! As a vegan this is the first time I have been to somewhere to eat that is vegan/ veggie only and a 'proper' restaurant rather than a cafe. I took my non-vegan Aunt and Uncle and they were just as impressed as I was. The staff were lovely, friendly and so helpful. I could take my dog in and they provided water and doggie treats for him. The food was fantastic. Spectacular presentation and amazing flavours. We had an unforgettable experience and will return next time we are in Brighton. Thank you!
Great little place, food amazing and just right for a vegan and a vegetarian....! Lots of choice and a glass of wine. We will be back thank you
Lovely food, service professional. Highly recommend
Lovely place, great food, fantastic staff. Will be coming back.
Love the food even we are not vegetarian. Good presentation and tasty! The only downside is the space not much room to move around specially with COVID restriction
Worth trying once.
Maybe go there when they have brunch going on.
We have been trying to get into this restaurant for a few months and it was worth waiting for. Great food, and real interesting spin on vegetarian. The staff were great and very helpful.
Food was amazing (as always), service friendly and eating outdoors in the sunshine is lovely, when the weather is with you. FFF always gets it right. Highly recommended
Recommended by a local friend, absolutely could not fault this place. 2 vegetarian teenagers and a granny all very happy. We will definitely be back thank you!
Excellent service, staff friendly and professional at all times! Food portions very generous and a high standard
Excellent restaurant. The staff were very friendly and attentive and the food was delicious. Really great place for Veggie and Vegan food. Would highly recommend.
Wonderful service, friendly staff and great location.
Food was good and we will definitely be back
I love this place! The food is exquisite, the cocktails wonderful and the atmosphere really lovely with just the right vibes. It is pretty pricey but perfect for a wonderful treat :)
Very disappointing food,and service after a superb dinner the night before .We had to wait 45 minutes for food to arrive , chips were luke warm , childs menu not the same as previous night and all in all very disappointing.
Great place for vegetarians
The food is well thought out & presented.
Not sure about the Banana fish & chips but the food is tasty
Great food, professional service and a really enjoyable evening.
GREAT service and food, took two vegan friends who loved it and for myself and partner, as meat/fish eaters, we enjoyed everything that was served - delicious!
We've been coming here for a number of years and the food is fantastic. Food for Friends is definitely worth a visit.
