First Review by Reuclai

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

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.

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

Unique, small, friendly, vegan - Edit

I really like this place. All vegan. The night I went, it was pretty busy, and there was only one staff person on the floor -- but he was way friendly, and attentive. It took awhile to get the food and to eat, but it was worth it. Lots of raw items, as well as cooked. They really like spirulina and other green algae here, and, if you like, you can get it mixed in with lots of items, including in one of the salt shakers. The atmosphere is unique, with cool stuff all over in this small, comfortable nook. Highly recommended.

Pros: Good food, Friendly staff

Cons: Not a fast place (if that matters)

Unusual and good food! - Edit

I've been twice in this restaurant and both times really liked my meal. The main dish was always a new combination of cereals, vegetables and sauce, part of them were exotic ones that I've never ate. I discovered and like all these new flavours. Some of the drinks are strange but some other are really good. Do not hesitate to ask for precision about the ingredients.

The place in itself is small and they don't take reservation so if you want to go by group, go at the opening to be sure to have sufficient seats. The staff is friendly and I didn't find they were slow.

Pros: exotic food, vegan, friendly staff

Cons: small sitting area

Overpriced, overrated, nice service - Edit

A very large price for a very small pile of adequate but uninspiring food. We were starving at the end of our meal. [edit by staff]
The only plus point at Sol Semilla was the lovely, lovely service. Thank you for lightening an otherwise disappointing experience.

Pros: The waitress & other staff

Cons: The size of the portions, The exortionate pricet

don't understand what people like about it - Edit

Small and uncomfortable, expensive and small portions, not such a warm welcome, strange and not particularly pleasant atmosphere...
I don't like the idea of criticizing vegan/organic places, but frankly... thank God there are more and more alternatives nowadays...
