We dropped in to FFF for the first time at the weekend and were impressed all round. The service was attentive without being overbearing - staff really seemed to know and care about both the food and creating a really relaxed dining experience. The tempeh...More

Lovely creative vegetarian food. I've had their set menu a number of times and it never disappoints. However, it never quite wins over Terre A Terre - the rival fine dining restaurant in Brighton. However, welcoming staff, good food, nice atmosphere. Def worth a visit.

Nice, but not sensational, vegetarian food. We both had the Cauliflower Falafel which was tasty, if a little dry. I do, however, think at £15 for a single portion the food is very overpriced for what was primarily a plate of bulgar wheat. I took...More

Although they try to cram in as many tables as possible, there is still a pleasant atmosphere. The food was delicious. My super food salad was plentiful and tasty; my husband loved his beer-battered halloumi and chips. We had no room for dessert. I would...More
