Satisfying and Filling, Not Fancy

19 Dec 2011

Amaltea was right around the corner from the Hotel Soho (and across the street from an Indian restaurant we didn't get a chance to visit. Closest metro is Urgell.

The owner is a vegetarian and Hare Krishna and the food reminds me of Hare Krishna meals. The prix fixe dinner was quite substantial, with a soup, entree and dessert. Neither of us could finish our entrees. This is a low key restaurant with no frills - this is not a gourmet!

If you are in this area and want a filling vegetarian meal this is a good place to go, but I would not necessarily travel out of you way to eat here. That is not to say I did not enjoy my meal or the service, just don't expect anything fancy.

Massive Portions, Busy, Unlimited Wine!

19 Dec 2011

We came here for lunch as it was around the corner from the hotel we were staying at, the All Seasons Prado. It was extremely busy and packed but we were seated relatively quickly.

The lunch was prix fixe only and included unlimited wine (other options were available), appetizer, entree and dessert. It was just way too much food. My husband loved that they simply plunked down a bottle of wine at our table (white for him, red for me) and just let us drink away.

The food was not bad, definitely satisfying, but nothing exciting or gourmet. Neither one of us could make a dent in the entree because the appetizer was so filling.

I wanted to eat everything on the menu!

There were so many choices at Gobo I was at a loss at what to order. We came with many meat eaters and they all enjoyed it as well. The silliest thing we ordered was the 'avocado tartar' was is basically fancy guacamole without tortilla chips. Everything was so tasty and flavorful, I can't wait to go back.

Authentic Italian on a cute side street

23 Mar 2011

I went here based on it being on a list on HappyCow.com. It happened to be right behind my hotel, which was near the Cavour metro stop. If you go, take the metro to Cavour, get out and go down the steps - that's Via Urbana. There's many cute little places there to explore as well.

My dish, the orrichette with turnip greens I found a little salty. My husband had something in a cream sauce, so when we shared each others' dishes it balanced out a bit.

I paid total 22 euros for the two dishes. We went for dinner on a Saturday, a bit earlier and had no wait.

Beautiful presentation, expensive, ok food

V-note touts itself to be an upscale vegan establishment. The location on the upper east side is right next to Candle 79. I went there at 6:30pm on a Thursday and the restaurant was empty, but filled up during the course of my meal. The restaurant is not so small that it is cramped, and it has a nice bar. I ordered the ravioli in cashew cream and it was very heavy! I couldn't finish it all. Overall, I enjoyed the experience, but likely won't return because of the price and the food was 'ok' I like a bit more flavor and spice in my meals. But very beautiful presentation, decor, and friendly waitress (who was also vegan).

Nice food, crowded, bit expensive

02 Nov 2009

My husband and I choose this place as it was on Happy Cow and it was reviewed by a guidebook we were using. The service was friendly but the place is VERY SMALL. We choose the menu option, where you get 1 soup, entree, and 1 dessert. I ate the soup, my husband ate the entree (a burger), and we shared the dessert (chocolate pot). We both enjoyed our meal, which came to Euro 25.

Clean, spacious, and great food

02 Nov 2009

My husband and I are of Indian origin, so we enjoy spicy, tasteful food. We really enjoyed our selections at Loving Hut. We were allowed in when they noticed us peering in and looking at the menu inside (as they open at 6pm for dinner). The portions were large enough to satisfy. Highly recommend!

Finally, Great Indian in Stamford

03 Nov 2010

I visited Navratana in mid May 2010 for the first time and loved it. The other Indian restaurant I visited in Stamford (Dakshin, lunch buffet) a few years ago made me feel I couldn't get good Indian in Stamford. So I was really pleased with Navratana, not to mention it was all veg! I ordered the veg thali. I work in Stamford and can't wait to go back. Prices are reasonable, and it is not a bad place to have a business lunch.

Beautiful Space, Beautiful Food!

19 Dec 2011

I am so glad I came to Teresa Carles! The restaurant itself is beautiful in the interior with an open prep area where you can see a display of the menu items). Their lunch prix fixe included an appetizer and main course which was more than enough. I had the soup and my party had the caesar salad. For the entree half of us had the risotto (those that had it said it was a bit under salted) and the other half had a pasta.

This is a wonderful place to have a nice meal in a nice setting. I would go back again!

Bordadores, 3, Madrid, Spain

Cute & Inventive

19 Dec 2011

This was a cute little restaurant not too far from Puerto del Sol (and around the corner from a 100 Montaditos location). The restaurant was a bit pricey for me but the portion size was really large. I could no finish my soup nor could my husband finish his veggie burger.

This was overall a nice experience. We were given bread (watch out, they charge for this, so if you don't want it, let them know!) and also a little medley of appetizers...olives, a cantaloupe based drink, and something similar to a samosa with some sauces. They even brought us more when we asked.

The food was very fresh and beautifully presented. I enjoyed myself!
