Nice space, but average food

If you are in the area and hungry this place could be ok for lunch. We personally can't see why you want to eat here when an all-you-can-eat organic buffet is in the same area though.
The ambience here is nice - very light and airy, in a space that feels like a renovated train carriage (but isn't). It's tastefully done out.
Service is all in Portugese. Menu is a choice of A plate or B plate. We ordered both and both were quite average but ok I guess. Lots of cooked food and beans, if that's your thing. Taste profiles reminded me of what was on the dinner plate when I was young in Australia.. which is not a compliment really ;)
In a city with so many organic options we were caught a bit off our guard when we noticed the soy sauce provided contained MSG. Health is obviously not of the highest priority here, but you can kind of tell that from the balance of the food offered anyway. Not terrible, just not optimal in terms of greens/veges/raw inclusions.
We probably won't be back.
