“My favourite place in Brighton- by far!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

I thought being a carnivorous meat eater, I wouldn't ever become a fan of a vegetarian restaurant, how wrong was I!?
I love going to FFF, the atmosphere is relaxed but very welcoming in a top central location in Brighton. Whilst eating fabulous food you can see people bustling by the large windows..
Getting back to the food; it's colourful, you can see that there's creativity and inventiveness going on there, it's fresh and it all works beautifully! I took my husband, also a carnivore, who like me loves the place! Great stuff :/)

I am not a veggie but however came here for a sunday lunch with my meat eating boyfriend, we really did love the food, it was extremely tasty, was a good contender to a meat restaurant.

“Somewhat dissapointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

All I will say is....
We booked a table approx 2 months in advance for lunch for my partners birthday. On our arrival the restaurant was busy (Friday 2pm) and although we said we have a table booked the young lady took no notice and asked us to wait for the next available table with others, which turned out to be a small table squashed in the back room by the door.
I wasn't expecting, roses and a fanfare but recognition and a reserved table would have been less than rude, we were bang on time!
Unfortunately by now the sour taste and sinking feeling had set in and the meal had no meaning, we quickly ate up and left.
Not a memorable birthday lunch unlike the wonderful evening meal in the 'Terre A Terre' the night before.

“Delicious Veggie in Brighton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

First visit to Food for Friends and we weren't disappointed. Delicious and well presented vegetarian food using local ingredients. Great relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff too. I can't fault it and will be recommending to others!

“Very good food & service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

This is the first time we have visited Food for Friends and found the food very good and would return there next time we visit Brighton. We started with the bread which had just been taken out of the oven & was still warm. The waitress also bought us another type to try as soon as it was ready in addition to plate we already had. The main course was very good and there was a lot of choice on the menu. The waitress we had was very friendly and took the time to recommend dishes. Would recommend this restaurant.
