Handy location, but bit of a strange one!

The best thing about this place is the location, it's right down the street from the Castle, and as there's not much else in that area in terms of veggie and vegan options, it's handy if you're really hungry and need to eat in that area. The outside seating is lovely - it's in a little sheltered courtyard and was very peaceful - a nice welcome break.
However, if you're strict vegan, this might not be the best choice for you. The menu is in English, but it's a little bit confusing. For an easy life, we opted for the 'all you can eat' option which is a set meal. It comes on a canteen style tray and they come back when you've eaten it and ask if you'd like more of anything. The food was a little bit strange and not very hot. There was a lentil soup which was nice enough, then a possibly vegan curry which had pineapple in it and was OK, but I probably wouldn't eat a lot of it unless I was desperate, there was a small portion of salad which I think contained some pickled veg - so fine, if you like pickled veg, some bread, which was nice, and a pudding which was berry yoghurt (didn't eat it as try to be vegan)and a sort of sweet dumpling thing which I tasted a little bit of out of curiosity but didn't finish as I wasn't sure what was in it. I wasn't unhappy, it was fine and I'm just always happy when I get something that I can eat OK, but I wouldn't recommend it as a gourmet option.
They do juices here too - you can get wheatgrass juice. You could probably get something a bit more standard if you took your time over the menu and worked things out but we were too hungry! It's very reasonably priced too, so a good budget option, particularly if you take them up on the 'all you can eat' offer. We didn't finish our first tray so didn't test them on this.
Handy location, Peaceful setting, Good prices
Food a bit strange
