Respond to Review of Vegetariano Social Clube
Review: I went there four times - mostly because it's about the only place I found that was open in the evenings. My first experience, the buffet, was frankly pretty terrible - the too-salty comments made by others rung true, and it was very expensive compared to far better vegetarian buffets elsewhere in the city. The soups are good, but expensive - the homemade toast that comes with the soup is amazing; this toast also features in the hummus "couvert" appetiser that I had twice and would thoroughly recommend - though it's better to share as it's pretty big. Main courses were good but nothing exceptional nor even excellent - this place likes to think it's gourmet but it's nothing by international vegetarian standards. The ginger organic caiprinha, on the other hand, is a true classic and if you drink alcohol you must try it. The passionfruit version is also excellent once you get past its look and consistency of frogspawn. So yes, the place is good, but expensive, and if there were other evening options I wouldn't have kept coming back. If you go there without sky-high expectations driven by some of the rabid reviews here, you'll have a better experience than I did.
