Whenever I am in Brighton I always try to visit Food for Friends and have done so for at least 10 years. My recent visit was good but the main dish was slightly disappointing. I was also given several menus to look at but was not told that some dishes were only served at certain times. This became apparent when... More

The food here is very good, they do have different dishes to other vegie restaurants, it is served nice and tastes good the wine is outrageously expensive for not particularly good wine and why they think adding twelve and a half percent service charge to the bill is the right thing to do, amazes me the service is good and...

Went for dinner with my meat-eating husband and vegan best friend. I am vegetarian. It took us a long time to decide what to order because I am used to settling for the only vegetarian item on a menu when we go out to eat, so to have literally the entire menu to choose from is amazing. The photos of... More

We had come to Brighton for a few days as a quick break. We had no plans for the evening and just popped into this restaurant, we did not even know it was veggie, as we are not vegetarians. What a great find. The food was excellent and the service and staff superb. I would really recommend this eatery to... More

Came here with half vegetarian/half meat eating company and everyone found something that they loved on the menu. The menu was full of delicious, healthy ingredients and much more interesting recipes than your average veggy restaurant.

My Wife and I visited this restaurant recently, the greeting service and food where all excellent. My Wife is a vegan and I am a carnivorous meat eater so my visits to vegetarian restaurants are to say the least lacking in anticipation, I am pleased and surprised to say this is one place I will definitely look forward to revisiting:-)...

This restaurant offers excellent cuisine, especially for vegetarians. This restaurant is tasty and healthy food! Everything was delicious and beautifully served. The waitresses were friendly and welcoming. Be sure to go there again when we are in Brighton.

As a vegetarian, it is not very often that I am able to find a wide variety of delicious dishes available to me on a menu. I have eaten in many vegetarian restaurants around the UK, and Food With Friends is the best one so far. Its flavours are inventive, and its combinations of ingredients are inspired. Highly recommend this... More

My boyfriend and I stopped at this veggie restaurant feeling daring, and we weren't disappointed! We're both meat lovers, who have never dreamed of going vegetarian, but the experience was a delight. I originally thought only one option on the menu would suit me, but realised that many of their dishes sounded very appetising, and they looked it too! I... More

My meal at food for friends was fantastic. I had the Portobello mushrooms stuffed with feta, sun-dried tomatoes and pine nuts, served with turnip and potato dauphinoise, fine beans, red and green pesto and crème fraîche and Sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce and vanilla ice cream. Both courses were amazing, absolutely delicious. The service was excellent. I was dining... More
