This is by far the most outstanding restaurant that I've been to... And, I'm an omnivore! "Food for Friends" has become hubby and my grand surprise for visiting friends and family and has never disappointed. If you haven't tried it yet, you're missing out on a whole new take on food.

What a lovely vegetarian restaurant! I only ordered a main of a halloumni burger with portabello mushroom, but it was just perfect. The sweet potato thick chips were quite a treat. I couldn't finish it all though... Lovely staff too! Warmly recommended.:D

I highly recommend this restaurant! As a vegetarian I normally don't get a lot of dishes to choose from so the only problem the great menu gave me was an impossible choise between all those tasty meals ;)

Four of us had a birthday supper after a glorious day revisiting old haunts in Brighton. My daughter had found this restaurant on a surf, and boy what a find. I'm a committed carnivore, but was very happy to go veggie and I'm so glad I did because I was truly bowled over by the quality of the food. I... More
