First Review by stuart

convenient and nice

My hotel was near Praca de Espanha metro station. Even though I had printed the Lisbon, Portugal listings prior to my trip - this listing was so far down that I was completely surprised to find this restaurant just outside of my hotel. I went here for dinner and found it to be quite nice. The staff was very kind and the prices reasonable. I greatly enjoyed the foods that were identified as vegan, although I didn't get too carried away because of the warnings in other reviews. I steered clear of the deserts and even the soup. There is always a chance even when trying to be careful I may have consumed something non-vegan (I had beans, rice, puréed carrots n seitan). If I could be certain my choices were truly vegan I would give this place more stars because the food was tasty an plentiful.

Pros: nice and friendly atmosphere, tasty food, nicely priced buffet
Cons: uncertain if staff was accurate with vegan identif

Beware of this Restaurant.

The atmosphere is nice and modern, the food is cheap and tasty and it can be a nice dinning experience.

Despite this, I urge you to be very careful.
I used to go to this restaurant a lot and stopped for a few reasons:
The owners are greatly misinformed.
If you must enquire regarding the food, do so to your waitress and make sure she confirms with the kitchen.
On several ocasions I asked of one of the owners and I was given wrong and contradicting information regarding which of the dishes were Vegan.
The owners do NOT know what they are serving.
Personaly I think they only made a veggie restaurant because they were "in" a few years back.

Also, I do not appreciate being lied to! One of the deserts I enjoyed the most was their vegan cheesecake.
Until one day when my boyfriend's "vegan" cheesecake tasted like goats cheese.
I got upset and enquiered further about this dessert they swore to me was vegan, only to hear that: "Maybe that one isn't. But the one you ordered is! Except maybe the crust... The crust isn't but apart from that, all vegan!"

Needless to say I no longer trust a word they say regarding what's in the food and I never went there again.

I saw a review regarding animal gelatine, and although I never knew this, it does not come out as so farfetched to me at all.

Pros: Good Value, Modern Atmosphere, Tasty Food
Cons: You can't trust the food!, Misinformed owners and staff., They have lied about the food before.

Modern Vibes

An extremely modernistic place serving great food in this business / commercial part of the city. At €6.95 for a lunchtime buffet we have a bargain here. You pay a little bit more at night but it's worth it. Wine is only €7.95 a bottle. Result. The food is good, very good with plenty of vegan choice. Tofu, seitan, pulses, vegetables, salads, soup, dips and sauces. Very impressed. Get yourself here for a treat, it may be quiet at night on certain days but go and enjoy

Pros: food, staff
Cons: location

Attention! Even though this restaurant calls himself vegetarian, the desserts are made with meat, bones and animal fat, the gelly they use is the animal one kind

Cons: Lie, Use meat and bones

I need to come back!

I was on my way to the coach station and leaving for Portimao, so I just quickly passed by. I had a little bit of everything for take away, and I loved it all! Staff was friendly as well, wish I could have sat for a bit longer or return to this place at some point.

Good value, tasty veggie food

We are a vegetarian family and generally struggle to find suitable food on holiday. This was one of the restaurants we had found on our pre holiday internet search and we had dinner here. The set price of 10 Euros (I think) for the buffet (drinks & dessert extra) seemed good value with a huge choice of imaginative salads, soup & hot dishes (pasta, seitan curry, rice, aubergines with cheese & tomato & tofu with a mustard coating). The young woman who served us was very friendly and helpful. All the food was fresh and tasty and the bonus was that the restaurant is very close to our hotel (the Corinthia). We probably wouldn't have ventured here had we been staying more centrally as it is a bit off the beaten track. We would definitely eat here again when next in Lisbon.

Pros: Good, fresh salads, Lots of choice, friendly staff
Cons: Not central location

Several vegan options

A veggie buffet with several vegan dishes. Soup of the day was vegan when we went, several salads and 2/3 main dishes. Sadly none of the desserts were vegan. But enough for a nice meal. Bit out of the way in the commercial district.

Pros: well cooked food, clean, airy, good choice of drinks
Cons: out of the way, no vegan desserts

Really nice salads, beans and drinks. Hot dishes were not on the same level, but good basic food anyway. Overall the place is really good, but the location is problem. It is simply too far from the center. If you happen to be in the neighbourhood, I definately suggest to try this out.

Pros: salads, drinks, friendly staff
Cons: location

pleasant meal

reasonably priced buffet, many interesting salads, several hot dishes. tasty, not spiced like North American vegetarian food. relaxed, pleasant room. worth the trip out of the way.
