Paradise for vegetarians, hell for vegans...
Posted on 11 / 09 / 2013
As a vegetarian, I would have probably ranked this restaurant with four cows. But, as a vegan, and because of the excessive use of dairy products (in almost every of the interesting dishes, even the houmous!) and the lack of vegan alternatives, I definitely rank this restaurant with two---unhappy---cows.
The restaurant offers unlimited hot and cold vegetarian buffet (including different pies), unlimited soup and unlimited dish of the day at a very reasonnable price. The staff is friendly, and is aware of what veganism is even if the restaurant is not really vegan friendly. The location is practical and the place very nice. However, as a vegan, it is not really good value for money because there is very, very few choices, only in the cold buffet, with mostly a flavorless taste. Moreover, vegan choices are not clearly indicated, and worst, some of the dishes, whose ingredients are written in front of the buffet and appear to be vegan, contains in fact milk, without it was written! That is the case of the houmous. Why milk in houmous?!
Concluding, go if you're vegetarian, avoid if you're vegan. Needs a lot of improvements to be interesting for vegans.
