Just OK - Edit

This restaurant seems to have two sauces - garlic aoili and spicy aoili - that they put on everything. Half of the menu is something sauteed with a side of either or both. The polenta dish was deliciuos. The baguettes were toasty and good. The red sangria was not even good enough to get halfway through. The home-made chips were stale and cold but probably are good when hot and fresh. Overall - nothing to write home about and not enough variety for us veg'ns to justify going back for. The service was pretty lacking too and I wondered if that had to do with the fact that the tip is automatically added to the bill and no tipping is allowed.

Pros: polenta

Cons: service, boring options

A wonderful find - Edit

I was desperate for something healthy and not soaked in grease like most Indian and Thai food is (my two usual vegan stand bys). I did a search on happy cow and this restaurant was with in walking distance of my hotel downtown so I decided to give it a shot. I was wonderfully surprised by the amount of vegan food they had available on their menu. Everything we had was delicious especially the gazpacho. I recommend this restaurant if you are a vegan stuck downtown and craving some tasty healthy food!

Pros: DELICIOUS, small and large plates

Cons: A bit pricey
