Respond to Review of Bar Ecologico Gaia
by Tara HD
Review: We expected more from the restaurant, especially since it advertises itself as part of the slow-food movement. In fact, the dinner started well enough with good tapas, very good soups and an excellent juice of the day. However, the main dishes (one with pasta, the other with bulgur) were rather uninspiring. They looked nothing like in the menu, lacked salt, had way too much (tasteless) tofu in it and my partner's dish was partly lukewarm. Also the vegetables displayed in the counter (and also in the supermarket next door) did not enhance the experience. They looked way past any best before date and we wondered if they really used such vegetables in their dishes. Service was very friendly but a little confused. She didn't take notes when we ordered, came back after a few minutes to ask us again about our order since she had forgotten parts of it even though we were the only guests there.
