Fresh but uninspired
Posted on 07 / 09 / 2010
We stopped in here in July 2010 for lunch. We were staying in the neighbourhood and were glad to know there was a vegetarian place so close. The restaurant is cheerful and nicely decorated, seems like a great place you'd like to spend an afternoon with a friend having some food. There were several other diners in the small restaurant at the same time as us, most of them locals.
Hopeful, we spoke with the waitress/owner (?) and she told us the selections of the day. There were a few flavours of tarts (like quiche) and she recommended the eggplant/quinoa dish. I ordered that. Unfortunately it was a plate of undercooked, crunchy quinoa with thick slices of lightly seasoned eggplant on the side. It needed to be further seasoned or come with a sauce - the meal was unsatisfying and unappetizing. My partner ordered a tart and she enjoyed it but is only for those two eat eggs.
All in all, I was very disappointed. I hope it was just a case of poor ordering on my part. She did say the eggplant dish was delicious so I have to wonder. This area is in desperate need of more vegetarian places to eat so I hope this is not representative of the food here. Too bad.
Our meal consisted of two mains and cost us an outrageous 25 Euro. No drinks, appetizers, or dessert was ordered.
