First Review by MatthewBright

WOW! So wonderfully authentic mindful plant-based cuisine - Edit

This most divine eatery has a simple menu with only few items but each soo flavourful and even prepared with intention and mindfullness. Order the beetroot burger! 😍🤤
This microwaveless kitchen even caters to the Ayurvedic diet.
It is decorated with charming yoga and Indian inspired remnants housed in a beautiful little house on the hillside on the rustic cobblestone streets by the castelo S jorge.
Indian owner and lovely local portuguese staff 🙏😇
HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Pros: Mindful cooking practice, No microwaves, Open late

Cons: Seating only for about 25max, Minimal alcoholic drinks (if that matters)

Exceptional - Edit

This place is a little gem in the Castelo district in Lisbon. We fortunately stayed in a hotel on the same street so I was able to eat here a few times. Each meal was large enough to fill me up, and the dishes were also creative and delicious. The place is quaint and with plenty of character.

Pros: great food, good value, lots of options

Cons: none

Ok. High Prices, Meh food. - Edit

Cozy little space in a great part of Miradouro. The vegan nachos caught my eye but for €5 you only get tortilla chips and hummus. Not nachos lol. I tried the cheesecake which was actually why this review gets 3 stars. Although again, the price was spent compared to other vegan eateries in Lisbon. My wallet is more amazed than I am.

Pros: Fully Vegan

Cons: Spendy

It was alright - Edit

The food wasn't anything special and it was a bit pricey, the desert was good though. Staff was competent. If you are in the area you can give it a go but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit.

Cons: - Limited options, - A tad expensive for the food I was served

Below average - Edit

We were not too sure about this place but it's near the castle so we stopped there for lunch on our way there.
The food is quite average, small menu, the things we tried were less than impressive, also a bit expensive for what it is. Service is neither fast nor friendly but if you're really hungry and in the area I guess it goes

Délicieux ! - Edit

De passage à Lisbonne je me suis arrêtée dans ce restaurant accompagnée de deux personnes non veganes. Nous avons tous été ravis de notre repas, les plats et les desserts sont délicieux ! Et l'ambiance du restaurant est très sympathique. :-)

Pros: Restaurant vegan , Bonne ambiance , plats très bons

Disappointing - Edit

After reading the reviews and as we were staying in Alfama, we couldn't wait to try this place

The reviews are certainly mixed and we were on the side of disappointment. Great location, quirky interior but the food was pretty bland.

Possibly if you're from an area with few vegan options, this place would excite you, but personally, I felt this place could do a lot better and could provide a more varied selection of food. We had the lasagne, salad bowl, nachos, ice cream and chocolate mousse - I'm afraid to say, none were particularly good with no seasoning or texture.

Simple dishes with a reasonable price - Edit

We went there for dinner. We took 2 portuguese rancho, it was very good. Nothing special, just it was good and we enjoy our meal. My wife took a very good dessert (spice cake) and loved it and... I took another main course. The first one was enough, but well, I prefer salt over sugar so... Again, it was simple and very good (spinach, curry, tofu and rice).
It's not the best meal you'll have, but it's a good place to go :)

Pros: Waiter was nice, Simple

Great find! - Edit

Tucked away in the old town, this is a great little vegan joint. Good selection of tasty vegan dishes and also mix 'n' match smoothies. Would defo recommend a visit. Friendly staff, speak good English.

I felt I was robbed - Edit

The food was very simple and had nothing special. Moreover, the plate is very small and had only one or two spoons of the main dish and side dish. It does not justify the price of 9,50 euros per dish at all. I usually get full easily but when I left there, I was still hungry. Sad but true.

Cons: too expensive, small portions

Amazing stew - Edit

Vegan menu of the day with choices of salad, soup, noodles, and stew. We got the vegan sausage stew and it was phenomenal. Price was €9 which was reasonable. We also got the nachos with salsa but were not amazed, and would probably skip. Our waiter was super helpful with all of my allergies and made sure that everything was ok for me to eat.

Pros: Helpful waiter

overpriced, nothing special - Edit

Friendly staff, food was ok. 3 of us wanted the curry but there wasn't enough for all of us to have it.. the curry itself was basic and didn't have many toppings aside from tofu. 9.50€ for just a bowl of rice noodles was pretty steep.

Small place, friendly staff - Edit

I was looking for a place to have lunch, and even though we had GPS and were right in front of the restaurant we didn't realize we were and by mistake ate at the restaurant next door! So be careful and note that if they haven't opened yet, the restaurant is nearly invisible if you don't know what you're looking for.
But eventually when we realized our mistake, we bought takeaway desserts to make up for it. They were good, but nothing that I think I would be eating on a regular basis. Sadly I didn't have the opportunity to eat their savory dishes.
The staff were very friendly in explaining the ingredients.

Pros: Good location, Okay desserts

Cons: Very hard to find if not open yet.

ok .. but don't expect too much - Edit

As I said in the title, that restaurant could be much better. The place is lovely and the waitress is nice.

We want there yesterday for lunch. We shared the nachos with hummus and olives as a starter.. It had nothing special.. It was just cold tortilla and hummus/avocado/herbs salsa.
For the mains, I had a quinoa salad. It was tasteless and overcooked (really overcooked, it seemed like a quinoa puree), that's sad because the salad on the side had a nice fennel dressing. My boyfriend tried something like a pie, sorry I don't remember the name. His plate was too salty as much as the bill. We spent more than 30 euros which is expensive for Lisbon for a lunch like that.

I guess, we went there on a bad day, It can happen sometimes but we won't go back.

Great food [EDITED] - Edit

EDIT 10/05 : I came back twice after that initial review. I tried a piece of apple struddle & another night I had the rice noodles with veggies and fried tofu. Both were really tasty. Staff is getting friendlier every time I visit. I really enjoy this small restaurant :)

//

I stumbled upon the restaurant by pure coincidence, after walking around in the neighborhood. I knew the name of it since I had searched for vegan places in Lisbon a few months ago, so I took my chance and went in.

I ordered a mango juice (not homemade) + the ice cream with fruits/nuts....super refreshing and tasty !
Then since I was also looking to try it out, I ordered a piece of banana/cinnamon cheesecake....with a dates/walnuts base, it was SO delicious and not too sweet nor heavy either ! I was impressed and more than delighted.

The staff was a bit busy but I have talked to some of them, and they seemed nice.

I will probably come back there another time!

Disappointing - Edit

I had high expectations for this place based on the good reviews. I ate nachos and orange juice. The nachos were packed tortillas, the hummus was awful and it was a struggle to drink the juice because it seemed like they throwned whole oranges on a blender! On top off​ it the staff was quite rude especially the guy. I will not go back!

Pros: None

Cons: The food wasn't​ good. Rude staff

Vegan in Lisbon Works - Edit

I was really surprised by the tasty food in this place, my non-vegan boyfriend loved it and we actually came back two more times to eat here while we were in Lisbon. Staff is friendly, the atmosphere is cozy, desserts are also good, came out happily satisfied.

Pros: Comfort Food, Cozy Setting, Nice Staff

Nice vegan cafe - Edit

We visited this place last august when we where traveling in Portugal. We really enjoyed this cosy and cute place. The food was home-made-like and good. The prices were also very reasonable.

Pros: Home-made food, Quite cheap

Cons: narrow menu

My favorite place in Lisbon - Edit

Probably my favorite place in Lisbon, nice, friendly and warm atmosphere. Food is top quality and very flavorful. There are different dishes to try every day but don't miss the polenta with seitan topped with soy cream. It's delicious!

Pros: Triumph of flavors

Sattvic Food - Edit

This little cafè-restaurant has a nice relaxed atmosphere with a friendly staff. The menu selection is not too wide and all vegan. It can be an option if you are in the center. The quality is ok even though some things can be improved. I asked for a ginger juice which came with all the ginger pulp in it and was not easy to drink. The food we ate lacked a bit of character and the cakes are on the dry side. All in all I will still recommend it. I went there for dinner with a friend and came back the day after for cake and coffee in the afternoon. Nice music in the background!

Pros: Central, Conscious eating, Friendly staff

Cons: Quality of food can be improved

mediocre food and bad service - Edit

Unfortunately my experience here was not good.
To begin I ordered their "cold pressed juice" which came out wrong and also came out with chunks of carrots. It was more like a smoothie so I had to ask for it to be filter out pieces.
We the had "nachos" which aren't really nachos. It's a side of store bought salsa and some olives.
Then the entrees came. The curry lentil stew was poor tasting and the polenta incredibly oily
The veggie strudel and the couscous were ok. If you absolutely need to stop and eat there which was our case, get that.
We were never given silverware as promised and no napkin in sight.
The place was super dead so there is no excuses for that. Would not recommend.
The total for nachos 2 juices and 2 entrees , 29 €. Not worth it.

Chaotic - Edit

Stuff not that nice. One of the girls had no clue about the menu. I wanted the polenta dish but then I was informed they do not have polenta anymore. The alternative was a lentil salad with couscous. I asked if it was served warm or cold since it was really cold in Lisbon that day - they told me it was cold. So I ended up eating a soup, which they did not know of what it was made. It was nothing special so sorry for my bad recession.

Pros: Homemade cakes, Place inside, Prices ok

Cons: Bad stuff, Lack of dishes shown in the menu

Very tasty - Edit

I had the satvic masala dosa and I did not regret it. It was absolutely tasty.

For dessert, we shared the chocolate salami and some sort of chocolate pudding with cookies served in a cup. I was glad to be able to sample a vegan version of the popular salami, and it was pretty good. I much preferred though the chocolate pudding with cookies, which, oddly enough, reminded me of the ice cream+oreo cake my grandmother used to make.

The waitress was very nice.

Pros: friendly staff
