Very nice staff - food was ok - Edit

It is an all vegan restaurant on an island that is not vegan-friendly per se so that alone earned this place the first 3 stars. The 4th one is for the super friendly staff who even asked for our music wishes. Although we walked in right before closing time we received a warm welcome and were not rushed at all. The food was ok, nothing to write home about but decent. We ordered the Samosas as starters, which were good, and then the Vegan and the Jamaican platter. For dessert we had an apple pie and a chocolate lime tart. It is rather expensive compared to other places on the island. But then again it is the only all vegan place here as well!
BEWARE: The address here is missing the street number (80) so the map leads you to a different place :) you have to keep walking up the road for about another 100m to find the vegan heart :)

Pros: Friendly staff, Only all vegan place on the island

Cons: Rather pricey , Food just ok, Lots of deep fried dishes

Never again! - Edit

Everything was bland and deep fat fried. Started with the samosas which were the only good dish I ate. “Bio organic beer” was Carlsberg and 3€ a glass “Bio organic wine” was the exact same as the wine the shop next door was selling for 2.15€ a bottle... all drinks arrived after the food also.

Bearing in mind the restaurant was empty they only had 1 small bottle of water available for our table of 4. For mains we had “Vegan Lust” all deep fried and very oily, the only part of it that actually tasted of anything was the cheesy bacon (again deep fried... for some reason), the other unidentifiable fried oily lumps I couldn’t tell you what they were. The “Jamaican platter” was more of the same shaved carrot that came with the samosa starter and some half cooked tempeh ‘chicken’ with zero taste to it! The Japanese “Gyoza” plate was again.... deep fat fried oily mess. Was meant to be dumplings but that was not what was served. For 70€ it was one of the most expensive meals had in Madeira and by far the worst.

Left feeling very disappointed, ripped off and with a very upset stomach from all that oil!

For an empty restaurant you’d think they would be a bit more prepared, example, re stock their bottled water? The real Maderian, Fawlty Towers experience topped off by a crescendo of crashing pots and pans heard from the kitchen as we awaited sight of someone to ask for the bill.

Never again.

Pros: Can’t think of any

Cons: Oily, Expensive, Bland

Easy place with the kids - Edit

This place has a great atmosphere and we think the place is nice with families and also for longer eves with the adults. It was nice to see an all vegan menu and we tried to order different kinds of meals. We ordered some of the plates and smoothies. We didn`t realize that meals all had the same base with different deep fried things. Well, the kids loved these meals and we adults liked them too. Nothing special but good. The smoothies were really good!!

The vegan burger we desided to eat some other time, but failed this because the place was on their christmas holiday few weeks and was closed. We think that a burger tells a lot of the kitchen like the soup as well. We would also liked to taste the other options on the list, wich sounded intresting.

A good place to go as a vegan. Kids gave five stars to this and we grown ups four. Let the kids talk this time and we give five stars to this.

Pros: All vegan place, easy to eat

Quite expensive and average quality - Edit

Although the taste was quite good I have to complain that quite much of the rice was hard or dry. The prices are up to ~14€ which is similar to „The Ritz“ which is one of the most expensive Cafés/restaurants and offers two very delicious vegan dishes between April and October (cannot recommend the winter menu).

Pros: vegan, friendly staff

Cons: quite expensive , average quality

Good enough - Edit

The food was good but it could be tastier. It was very plain although the concept was very interesting, with all the dishes looking appealing. I had the zushi which was lacking an authentic flavor and it seemed it wasn't seasoned enough. Again, very plain.
I am really proud to have a vegan restaurant in Madeira and I really support the island going vegan. However, I think there is room for improvement and I support this restaurant fully! :) PS very nice deco!

Happy food, good music, friendly people - Edit

This place was exactly what I expected to find, although the finding part was a bit hard because the street is cut in two and they were on the other part than where I was looking.
I had the samosas and the sushi with some ginger beer which was not on the menu but it was offered when I asked for non alcoholic drinks. The samosas were good but quite fat from the fryer. The tempeh sushi was delicious!
Good price for Funchal and very friendly staff.
They had some reggae on the speakers which got me in a relaxed mood to enjoy my food and the company I found here.

Pros: Many choices, Friendly staff, Good vibes

Cons: Quiet place, we should promote them more ;)

Not bad - Edit

This place is hidden discreetly away off the beaten track and take a bit of finding as it’s quite anonymous until your right on top of it. Layout is rough and ready and nothing special. Decor is very rudimentary and basic. This is a cafe rather than an auspicious eatery. Indeed it even has a small garden in the middle of the floor space which is quite quaint but impractical. Food is ok - quite a decent choice with. Japanese theme. Servings are large so do not overestimate your appetite. However the meals are quite heavy and stodgy as they use lashings of fried ingredients such as Seitan. I definitely recommend the fries (or chips as we Brits call them!) - really yummy! Their organic beer is very nice, a tad East’s but very palatable.
All in all this is ok as a make-do vegan eatery in a town that lacks such venues.

Pros: Quantity of servings, Service is polite and courteous , Fries (or chips) - yummy

Cons: Off the beaten track, Rudimentary decor and furniture , Food is a bit stodgy

Very expensive - Edit

Good food but not worth the price. Very expensive drinks should be half the price.

lunch - Edit

This restaurant had a very nice environment, with some zen and Indian mantras songs being played in the background. The staff was very friendly. The food was good but I wished it had more diverse fresh vegetable options. Overall a nice experience. Being the only vegan restaurant in Madeira I think we all should come here and help them grow.

Pros: nice environment, extremely nice staff

Cons: I wish the menu had more fresh and diverse vegetab, I found it a bit expensive for the food served
