Delicious food and nice staff - Edit

Menu consists of plate of day - regular or raw and/or soup of the day. I had the plate of the day which is a mix of salads and superfoods and absolutely phenomenal. They also have delicious teas. Staff is really nice and knowledgable.

Pros: Nice staff, Delicious food, Warm atmosphere

Cons: None

Nice colors in your plate. - Edit

You can get a tasty array of ingredients in your plate. I got all essential amino acids with rice legumes.

You can get a conventional plate or a plate with only raw food.
To my knowledge, it's the only restaurant of its kind focusing on proposing super foods every day.

The biggest tv channel in France was actually filming there about the super foods trend. (I may or may not be in their report...)

Pros: Focuses on super foods

Cons: Little choice

Wonderful experience(s)! - Edit

Loved everything about this place. The staff was warm, friendly and accommodating. We went for lunch on the first visit and had the assiette du jour. It was a hearty, filling, well balanced plate with a lovely variety of flavours. We came back for dinner and had the assiette du jour again, which was almost more than we could eat. If you are lucky, the staff will bring shots of juices for you to try. We had the good fortune of meeting Jean Francois, the founder of the company, while we were there. He was lovely and interesting and took the time to speak to us in his best English about the various superfoods, their origins, and their benefits. He invited us to visit him at the bio market which takes place on Saturdays. The whole experience was enjoyable, uplifting and educational.

Pros: Staff, amazing food, warm, inviting atmosphere.

Cons: None! It would appear that reservations are recom

Tasty Plate of the Day - Edit

We had the plate of the day, which consisted of a well-balanced mix of cereals, beans, and vegetables.
The plate was flavorful and the portions were correct.

As a dessert we tried the vegan cake which had lucuma and banana. It was tasty; however, (1) it was tiny; and (2) I didn't taste the lucuma at all.
Drinks were also good, albeit on the small side.

The menu is quite limited (it's either the plate of the day or the raw plate or a soup), but it's fresh.
The service is quick and friendly.

All-in-all, I'd recommend it for the plate.

Pros: tasty plate of the day, friendly service

Cons: limited choice, a bit overpriced

Thanks for dinner - Edit

This place really does not disappoint! Do yourself and perhaps your friend a favor and go get some plant-based and just pure good food at Sol Semilla. Much more cannot be said. This down to earth and nature filled place should be visited when in Paris, France.

Thank you,

Pros: Down to earth place, Tasty plant-based food, Makes you feel good

Cons: Some of the items on the menu are less tasty, as the other items, so pick the right ones *winky face

Big portions and great food - Edit

I really enjoy Sol Semilla when I'm in Paris and feeling hungry and want something interesting and hearty. My favorite two plates are the raw plate, which is a lot of vegetables and other raw foods; and the cooked plate which has fewer vegetables but more grains and cereals. An emphasis is put on unique and "super" foods which comes through in the many drinks and soups on offer. Some I've really enjoyed and some are just ok by my palate. Prices are reasonable considering the size of the plates. It's not the biggest place, so seating can be tight. I advise getting here close to opening times to secure a good table or seat.

Pros: Delicious, tasty fare, healthy , good vibe

Cons: Can be difficult to find seating

disappointing - Edit

Healthy doesn't have to mean tasteless, I was very disappointed by this place. The restaurant is nicely decorated, the waitress are nice but the food is really boring. Not much choice on the menu and 5euros for a small glass of juice is quite expensive.

Pros: service , ambiance

Cons: expensive , tasteless food

Good cook and raw - Edit

Both raw and cooked fish were also macrobiotic. Plenty of option for desserts. Very creative juices.

nice place - Edit

Nice place with original food coming mostly from South America. They sell superfoods also.
Good spot close to a canal.
Plates could be a little bit bigger.

boring food :( - Edit

Quite boring food and expensive. The place is cute and has a nice atmosphere but the food was not of my taste, it simply didn't have much flavour. Maybe I just had bad luck and came on the wrong day.

An excellent vegan superfood restaurant close to Canal St Martin. Very nice atmosphere! Great concept!! Offers also a raw dish.

Super foods! - Edit

Very cosy little restaurant/shop where you can discover a variety of super-foods. The daily dish consists of several different dishes that all contain a super-food. You can buy the super-foods in the shop part. The staff is very friendly and happy to answer all your questions.
The atmosphere is very cosy and relaxed; also there is a very friendly cat in the restaurant :).
The daily dish is a bit pricey (15,50 EUR), the same goes fore the super-foods store.
The place is located near Canal St Martin, so great location.

Pros: Novelty , Friendly staff, Super-foods store

Cons: Value

Tasty, if a bit expensive - Edit

Really enjoyed the different flavours in my L'Assiette du Jour and (rice) milkshake. It's a bit on the expensive side for the size of the portion, but very enjoyable none the less. Cozy atmosphere, friendly service.

Pros: Tasty dishes, Atmosphere

Cons: Expensive

Experimental and exciting - Edit

My mum and I were looking for a light meal before our Eurostar return to London. This place is conveniently located near Gare L'Est. We both had the raw plate, which was beautifully presented, delicious, different and light, leaving room for some yummy raw desserts. The superfoods seemed very reasonably priced and I bought quite a few things (only to lose them at somepoint on the journey home argh). Can't wait to visit again.

Pros: decor and friendliness, experimental thoughtful food, great location

Really good place for Vegan & Super aliments - Edit

I really love the concept of this (tiny) place.
I loved the cooking truly Vegan with Super Aliments.
It's convenient too to be able to buy some of those inside the shop.
The negative points are the lack of space, the unfriendly staff and the inability to make a reservation.

un vrai voyage - Edit

Nous avons été séduites par ce petit restaurant qui permet une évasion en tranchant radicalement avec le cadre urbain de l'extérieur. Le décor est chaleureux aux airs de campagnes et de chalet. Nous avons été transcendées et rassasiées par les mets aux saveurs diverses mais harmonieuses; le dessert fut de la pure gourmandise. Un très bon accueil également avec des serveurs qui expliquent patiemment le concept du lieu et l'aspect nutritif des aliments et super-aliments sélectionnés; et une ambiance vraiment détendue. Le prix était très raisonnable pour la qualité des produits. Nous reviendront très certainement.

Pros: le cadre, le prix, la qualité
