My favourite restaurant. Exciting and creative food, cosy and warm setting, friendly and informative staff. Tasty and amusing and a real treat.
A fantastic, innovative meal, in really great surroundings with superb service. We'd definitely book again
Amazing meal, enjoyed every course more than the last. Service was faultless, professional but friendly and personable. Wine matching was interesting and really made the meal enjoyable. Will definitely return!
Amazing experience and the food was delicious. Staff were all wonderful I would really recommend
Awesome service and wine pairing with stunning food!
We had the most amazing evening, couldn’t have faulted any part of the night, food was amazing, atmosphere was perfect! We’ll be back when lockdown is over!
Simply fantastic food in a friendly and unpretentious atmosphere. The service is very much like a ritual as all guests are served each course at the same time and it is interesting to hear everyone’s reactions and comments. I had a couple of definite foodgasms during the meal. I strongly recommend this pop up restaurant.
Food was amazing! So good with the drinks flight as well which I would recommend. It’s a bit pricey but so worth the cost and service was so friendly.
Incredible food and service, thoroughly enjoyable evening.
Food and service superb.
We had a lovely evening, Perfect for our special occasion, the food was delicious, service by all was very good and friendly, we were welcomed with warmth and the atmosphere was warm and delightful. Would recommend to others and visit again. Thank you for such a great time.
A fantastic evening, amazing flavors, a fun menu and wonderful service!
The 4 hour dining experience at The Set was truly wonderful and a great way to celebrate a special occasion. They expertly crafted an amazing vegan menu that was full of unique, rich flavours. We kept getting surprised and impressed. Hard to choose a favourite dish. I recommend doing the wine pairing as we did a combination of getting a bottle of wine but later trying quite a few of the paired drinks so price worked out almost the same.
We had a lovely time, the food was incredible and exciting, and the wine flight was absolutely spot on. We were hosted beautifully, including a special request in relation to the bill. We look forward to another visit for the next special occasion.
Fantastic! Can’t fault it
The perfect balance of attentive service but not overbearing.
We had an absolutely perfect evening enjoying their 14 course taster menu for my partner’s birthday. Easily one of the most enjoyable meals out we’ve ever had. And we eat out a lot! Everything was 10/10 - service, ambiance, food, drinks, timing, music. And wow every course was just a delight - so flavoursome and and unique. We were so excited to see what was next! The meal lasted 3.5 hours and we loved every second. Perfect way to spend an evening and we’ll absolutely be booking again soon. Huge well done to the whole team for creating a truly special dining experience. Thank you!
Amazing menu and incredibly friendly and warm service, lovely to be able to interact with the chefs! Drinks pairings were lovely and felt really special to be able to have such seasonal produce.
Simply inspired cooking with the best of local ingredients Superb service
everything was absolutely delicious. Would definitely recommend!
Really enjoyable evening! Food was interesting and innovative, and the drinks' matches were great - so nice to have a variety of drinks, not just wine. The beer with the cheese was a highlight.
What an absolutely fabulous experience. My husband and I came here to celebrate my birthday and sat at the pass where we could see everything happening. It was a taste sensation from start to finish and wonderful service. We did the drinks pairing too which made the whole experience even more magical. We will be back.
An outstanding and brilliant experience at The Set this week. Such a great team who ooze passion and knowledge about what they are cooking and serving, be it on your plate or in your glass. Thank you.
Another magical experience at the Set. The new tasting menu has been prepared with such care, you feel like you are going on a journey with the chefs. The pairing was soo well done! Tomato liquer ?! Who knew ?! Amazing ! Apart from the insanity good food, what brings us back time and time again to the set, is the atmosphere. It’s a place you can experience the finest Food, but in surroundings that are authentic and make you feel like you are at a home from home. This is no small feat but the team make everything seem effortless. Still my absolute favourite restaurant In Brighton, thank you for an amazing night as always. Isla and Larissa x Ps - the Chicken and Crab dish blew our minds !
