Respond to Review of Terra Restaurante Natural
Review: It's not often that I instantly loved a place so much it excited me just thinking about it - but this one did. Set quite high up in the old town the location is quite special, there is plenty of indoor seating but if the weather is right, just head straight for the truly beautiful and tranquil tree-lined wooden decked garden at the back. The buffet at €15.90 is not cheap but the range and quality of food is truly exceptional including all sorts of hot and cold salads, soup, pizza, casseroles, tofu, seitan, rices and other quirky dishes combining Middle Eastern and Mediterranean influences. Everything seems to be organic here incuding the wine, hence prices are considerably more than the other vegetarian buffet places in Lisbon. On a good night there we've experienced a combination of great staff and a wonderful atmosphere. However, on the most recent visit in September 2015 the staff were simply not interested and just went through the motions. Whist the rustic magic of the place is still there it could definitely do with a little facelift. After you hand over the best part of €50 to the jovial staff member, the 'house' joke of receiving your change in chocolate coins at the front desk is a little worn now.
