Review: We weren't blown away by this place but it was ok all the same. The ambience is lovely - it's really nicely done out in natural woods with some modern touches... feels very new and trendy. The menu is not huge but sufficient nonetheless. Most of the best options are listed on the daily specials list, so the experience will be different depending what day of the week you visit. We ended up with quite a lot of proteins and not so many veges. The juices were not the super vege concoctions we prefer either, instead being mostly fruit based - some interesting and unique combinations though, including the use of herbs and spices in them. The food arrives at the table very quickly after being ordered, so they must be pre-made..obviously fresh would be better, as you don't get that buzz you get from freshly prepared meals. The taste profiles are also not quite up there with the best - we suspect the chefs are not all that accomplished. They are trying though and the vibe is positive and upbeat, so kudos to them. No English is spoken but they have an English version of the menu. Ordering involves finding the Portugese equivalent and pointing to it. All in all, not a place we will be running back to, but if we are in the area and hungry, we will probably try our luck a second time. It's certainly doable.
