I'd recommend this restaurant if you have a lot of time and you do not have a hearing problem. And if you are not too poor.

It took us 3 hours to eat lunch here, and that time was mostly waiting for the food. Could have been relaxing if we knew before or if the acoustics of the room was better so that you could actually hear what your company was saying instead of being drowned by the slightly louder conversation of the italians at the next table.

The food was nice, but not mindblowing and after 3 hours we were pretty much as hungry as we were when we started having the lunch.

The prices were too high actually.

The owner (or staff - don't know which) was very friendly.

Pros: friendly, vegan
Cons: time consuming, small portions, pricy

Great location, great food. The homemade seitan is mindblowing, best seitan ever.

Please go there. But to the owner: leave the incense, it's not too great to smell that while eating.

Pros: location, food, owner very nice
Cons: smell of incense

We had a meal there & the food was excellent. The owners are vegan, so plenty of vegan choices,with the wine from their vineyard which surrounds the restaurant. The only drawback was the length of time it took to have a 3 course meal with wine & coffee:We arrived at 20.20 & left at 23.20 having paid 77 euros for 3 of us.

Pros: Excellent food, Very friendly owners
Cons: Took 3 hours for a meal, Opens after 20.00 except Sundays, Closed Monday & Tuesday
