Many vegan options

So the restaurant is vegetarian but, they have many vegan options and were labeled correctly. This is already a plus points for them (except for passionfruit martini with pasteurized egg white).

We chose the outdoor seating. We arrived an hour earlier than our reserved time but, there was no issue to have us seated as right away. The staff were friendly and accommodating too.

We ordered lentil cream soup, avocado salad, dumplings, simple burger, raw avocado, carrot cake, tepache margarita and beer.

The tepache margarita was yummy and so as the carrot cake 😄

Extra: The “bland” comments from others may be true but, if you’re vegan for the animals, it should not matter.

Uninspiring Linguine veggie bolognese

I can't speak for the other dishes, but the veggie bolognese mainly tasted of tomato-carrot sauce, it really lacked both umami and a bit of texture. Furthermore the menu was outdated pricewise so they charged more than shown in the menu. Otherwise a nice outdoor seating environment, and a friendly staff, so might be good for a drink, or maybe another dish would be better.

Doesn’t live up to the hype

I’m always excited to try an all-veg restaurant, even though other review sites had many complaints about wait time & service. I came in for lunch today without a reservation. The hostess said she had a table available in the smoking section. I asked if non-smoking would be feasible & she said as long as I finished in just over an hour when the table was reserved. I replied I could eat that fast as long as the service allowed it. My server took several minutes to come over, and I couldn’t look at the English menu until then. He then took several more minutes to return for my order. I explained that the table was reserved at the specific time that I was told, and he said an appetizer and a main course should be no problem in that time frame. I ordered the pumpkin boulette with horseradish sauce. I then tried to order the jackfruit curry but he said it wasn’t available so I ordered the veggie bolognese pasta. I also ordered a cherry lemonade. The lemonade took several minutes but was very good. The starter took several more and the dish’s taste was completely dominated by the horseradish sauce. It then took several more minutes for my plate to be cleared, and several more for the bolognese to arrive. It was blander than the pasta sauce I make at home. I sincerely have no idea why it was even called bolognese as it just tasted like a bland marinara. But most importantly, it had taken so long to arrive I couldn’t finish eating it before I had to vacate the table. The server (who had barely stopped by) tried to insist there was “no rush” for me to leave the table when I asked for the bill despite what the hostess had specifically told me, which I guess explains his cavalier attitude about my service. The server responsible for the next section walked by my table a dozen times for every time my own server stopped to check on me.

Pros: Excellent lemonade

Cons: Terrible service , Surprisingly poorly crafted food

Highly recommended

Tried the caramelized eggplant (new addition on the menu) and the coconut and jackfruit curry and they were very tasty. Also had a white wine and lemonade and they were amazing. The raw berries and vanilla cake was delicious.
It might be just a bit pricy for some but it's definitely not considered overpriced for what you get

Pros: Beautiful place, Very good and fast service, Many vegan options

I would like to give it 0 stars

I arrived here around 2.30 and got a table inside on request because of the heat. It took the waiter an eternity to come to me. I ordered a water melon soup and pasta with artischocke,dried tomatoes,tofu und a cashewcreme.
It sounded all good on the menu.
And then I waited...and waited..and waited..nothing happened. After over an hour I caught a waiter and asked where my food was. My soup arrived 10min later. The watermelon soup was nice but at this point I was so hangry. After about another 30min after finishing my soup I spoke with another waiter. I said it is not normal that the food takes so long (the restaurant was only half full). He then started with an arrogant attitude saying the food is fresh he doesn't know where I am from but this is not Mc Donnalds good food takes it's time.
Well I am from the industry so no good good can be prepared fast and the food is obviously not fresh. I have been to a restaurant where the food was harvested from a nearby field after ordering and they were faster.
Then when my food arrived I couldn't believe it. The antischocke was not fresh but from the glass and the dried tomatoes had a strong taste of old oil (how do you even manage this in a restaurant?). They used yeast flakes as vegan cheese which was not just stupid but also disgusting since the whole food had a strong taste and smell of yeast. Honestly this was the worst meal I had in a vegetarian restaurant ever! So much ro being fresh. Also the dish itself was blend,boring,the texture was weird.
When I paid the waiter already typed the money into the card reader. I paid and he said service is not included.

That's right service was not included in this restaurant..
Arrogant waiter,disgusting main course,unbearable waiting time and expensive. I can not believe it but this costed me 2 hours of my day..

While I was waiting I had time to read Google reviews. I should have read them before..

Somehow I couldn't give it 1 stars but it should get 1 max!

Best dinner during the stay

Me and my friends went here for dinner and had a wonderful time. All of the dishes and drinks were amazing, as well as the presentation and the people. Highly reccomend, but it’s better to make a reservation.

Nice Experience

It was a nice day outside so I got to take advantage of the patio for dinner. Really nice ambiance, nice decor and very large patio so everyone has there space.

The service was good, friendly and quick. I got the guacamole to start, the vegan burger as my meal (with fries) and a carrot cake. To drink I got a lager and then an IPA.

The guacamole was nice and tasted fresh. It was just missing something though but I can’t put my finger on it. But all in all it was fresh and tasty. The burger was good but not my absolute favourite. I would explore other things on the menu but if I have to order it again I would. The carrot cake was absolutely lovely! Great flavour and it was nice and moist. The beer was lovey, especially the IPA.

All in all, it was a nice experience and I’d recommend going. Just a heads up - the kitchen stops about 1.5 hrs before closing. I went on a Friday and arrived at 9:20pm and the kitchen was closing at 9:30pm. Last call was at around 10:30pm and closing was 11:00pm.

Pros: Lots of vegan options

Cons: A little expensive

Realy nice place to sit in

This is kinf of a more fancy restaurant.
Evry little detail is taken into consideration, from to knife and spoon to the way the food is served.
This is a real restaurant.
Ate a minestrone soup - excellent
A burger with French fries - very good
For desert 2 chocolate bars - it was well done, but if you don't like almonds / nuts taste, it will be too much for you

Drunk a good beer, was unique, don't remember its name.

Pros: Good vegan options, A realy nice place to sit in the evening

Cons: A little more expensive

Fancy-ish food

The food was quite healthy and really good. They had plenty vegan options. Only the waiter seemed a little annoyed and was not too friendly. Maybe he just had a bad day. It's still worth a visit😊

Great place to get a bit 'luxurious' vegan foods

I had a vegan burger and carrot cheescake. It was delicious! I went with people that are not vegans nor vegeterians and they loved it! I highly recommend the place. 😊

Pros: Great and healthy vegan options, Friendly staff, Great ambience

Cons: A bit pricey
