Made our anniversary special
Beautifully cooled food, well presented, and lovely flavours from the charcoal grill. Lovely to see the working kitchen. Friendly service.
Wonderful meal at Kindling. Exceptional food and service.
The food offering is sublime, portions are just right, high quality produce and execution by the chefs is first class.
So so great. Delicious food would come back again and again!
Wonderful service and delicious food! Will definitely be back.
Never fails to impress. Food is outstanding, service is great and ambience is relaxed.
Really easy booking system, lovely environment and friendly staff. The food was a welcome change from the run-of-mill, it was tasty and well presented.
Such a friendly team and amazing food. We sat at the bar and Holly and the staff were so attentive, helpful and good humoured. The gnocchi and halibut dishes, in particular, were outstanding. We have been a few times before and will certainly be coming back.
Beautifully presented and delicious food, and a calm, professional service. Thank you Kindling for a lovely evening.
Delicious food & the service was very good. It was our first visit & we would return. It was quiet for a Sunday afternoon, but when busy it would be very COVID secure.
Excellent service. Loved the food. Very different and we tried some new flavours. Real attention to detail. We'll be back
Very accommodating of my food allergies. The food was beautifully cooked and well presented.
A real treat for the taste buds.
Myself and my wife visited Kindling for lunch, it was quiet ( covid hitting places hard of course ) but the staff were very welcoming.
We only had a single course but the food was excellent. I had the beef which was as good as I’ve tasted for a long time. Thoroughly recommend
David was the perfect host and arranged everything beautifully. The food was sublime, the ambience perfect and everything was just right for a romantic anniversary date. Thank you!
Four starters and four mains on the menu, plus two(?) specials, might not be enough. Brill with orange and capers, chocolate and cheese for afters, both super. Lovely service.
Out ot town friends insisted on returning to Kindling and want to come back again. My 5th visit i think and it remains one of my favourite Brighton restaurants .Great food , excellent service , not rushed , social distancing observed etc
Lovely mix of flavours and attention to detail. Really enjoyed it
Wow, fantastic experience. Simply the best food we've had in Brighton, and one of the best anywhere. Simple, exceptionally well cooked food and first class service. Go.
We were recommended Kindling by a friend and it didn't disappoint. They helpfully seated us at a table that had plenty of space nearby for our pram, and the staff were so freindly and helpful all evening. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. Great ambience, not too noisy, perfect lighting. Would definitely go again!
Friendly staff, fantastic food and lovely to sit and watch the chefs at work.
Fabulous unusual food, great attention to detail, and informative service
We had the most delicious, creative and exciting lunch. Fantastic food and great service. So highly recommended xxx
Really exciting food - beautifully prepared and served. Loved it and will go again.
Amazing dairy cow beef- best i’ve ever had! A generally lovely evening
Nice food and pleasant, willing staff. A little overpriced and, given that it wasn’t terribly busy, the staff were a little lax in offering water, fetching pepper etc. They needed reminding from time to time that we were there. I run a dining club and will bring the group there again but not until next year when, hopefully, they will have their acT together a bit more
Absolutely delicious food and nice atmosphere. Service was excellent and got us through in time to go to a show without rushing us.
We had a great meal at Kindling. It was a really nice evening. The food was exceptional and the service was also really good. We will endeavour to return to what is without a doubt one of the best restaurants in Brighton.
Absolutely delicious food, friendly service, great wine list. Very lucky find, just walking around finding somewhere to eat - would definitely go back
Innovative menu all sourced locally and merits a Michelin star !
Great no waste ethos. All items are gluten free - a real bonus for me.
Fresh and delicious however a tad pricey.
It was my first visit to Kindling and it was a wonderful surprise to walk into such a fantastic restaurant.
The staff from the very beginning were excellent and recommended some great dishes.
The desire is excellent and a lovely place to spend an evening.
The only disappointment fir me was the sexy cabbage. It was not as quite as sexy as I’d hoped it was a little to tart in taste but that’s just my view otherwise the food was lovely.
Thank you so much and I will be back soon I had a lovely evening.
One of the best meals I’ve had in Brighton for a while
This is my new favourite restaurant!! Seriously good food, that I can’t stop thinking about.
I mentioned that it was our anniversary and we were spoilt with extra dishes and being seated by the chefs (who are awesome).
Only improvement would be to turn the lights down a little!
Thank you for such a wonderful evening
Simply the best.
I cannot rave about this place enough, it's one of those places we'll not forget.
On arrival we sat around the kitchen area, and from the offset the service, atmosphere and food were fantastic. Holly, Toby and Ben were the friendliest people, and we got to experience a really intimate side as we could see them preparing everything. The wine was exquisite, the food unbelievable, and this was possibly the best dining out experience we've ever had...
Honestly, this restaurant is incredible. The food was phenomenal (and I’m a food snob!), the service was great and the atmosphere was equally professional and homely. I would definitely go back here again the next time I’m in Brighton.
The food here is ridiculously good! it is small plates of really incredibly tasting food. All locally sourced, fresh, clean, gluten free naturally (it's the exception they use something contain gluten) and just wonderful! We had ex-dairy cow steak which was INCREDIBLE!, pork, fish, the best Hispi cabbage I have ever eaten....the list goes on. The flavours are so cleverly put together. Holly and Toby are a great team. They know what food is brilliant together and they know how to make it sing! Beautiful place and an incredible experience...incredible seems to be the word of the moment - but others fail me, honestly brilliant!
Kindling is always on point and one of our go to places as locals. Short but excellent menu and outstanding cooking and service. Bit quiet on Sunday lunchtime but that didn’t bother us. Think they were rushed off their feet on Saturday eve and over Eat out to Help out.
Great food great service. Would return, fantastic all round dining experience.
