First Review by J-Veg

Really good restaurant - Edit

Symbiose is a great all-vegan restaurant with a small but lovely menu. I went here with a non-vegan who was pleasantly surprised of how special everything tasted; they didn't feel that anything was missing.
Expect to pay a little more for truly great food. One of the best places to go in Leipzig, if you are looking for something special.

Pros: Lovely small menu, great food

Amazing food - Edit

I found the food absolutely amazing. I had some sort of vegan "roast" made of lentils and mushrooms and other vegetables, with a sumptuous vegan take on smoked cheese and hollandaise sauce. Don't forget to try their local bio beers, too. The short menu encourages me: it's probably freshly prepared.

Cons: couldn't pay by card

Symbiose 02 May 2017 - Hey Frank, thank you for your contribution. We know we are not cheap, but we have reasons:
1. we only use organic ingredients
2. we do not use any processed food or ingredients
3. we do not use tap water for any food or mixed drink. We run our own reverse osmosis purification plant, which even feeds the coffee machine.

So, we don't want to be cheap, because this would mean we could not reach our goals. But we have reasonable prices.

We look forward to your next visit.

Your Symbiose Team

Schmackhaft und freundlich - Edit

Für uns Kleinstädter ist schon die Auswahl an Gerichten eine wahre Freude. Wenn sie dann auch noch gut schmecken und Ambiente und Service stimmen - umso besser! Wir hatten einen Linsenbraten (sehr lecker) und eine Rohkostplatte. Die zugehörigen Dips waren allerdings nicht roh, aber egal. Außergewöhnlich fanden wir auch das Getränkeangebot: Von Gerstengrassaft, den ich hier erstmals gekostet habe, bis zu mehreren Lassis ist alles dabei.

Symbiose 02 May 2017 - Hallo, vielen Dank für die Stellungnahme. Das Ambiente ist neu, wir hatten gerade umgebaut, und sind noch nicht ganz fertig. Der Linsenbraten ist noch nicht lange auf der Karte, vielen Dank für das Feedback. Vllt solltet ihr noch wissen, daß wir ausschließlich Bio-Zutaten verwenden und keinerlei Leitungswasser nutzen, sondern ausschließlich mit Wasser aus unserer hauseigenen Osmoseanlage arbeiten. Das gilt auch für die Drinks und den Kaffee.

Lieben Gruß Eure Symbiose.

Awesome healthy food! - Edit

It took me one year to visit Symbiose since moving to Leipzig, and I'm glad I finally did! The food is beautifully presented and tastes awesome, worth every penny. The menu changes every week so boredom will never be an issue, and they use very seasonal ingredients. Mine and my boyfriend's dish were both great. And the blackberry tiramisu... need I say more? :)

Pros: Seasonal, Healthy, Changes weekly

Cons: A little more than I'd usually spend

Opt for the brunch! - Edit

The brunch is quite good with a lot of homemade salads and and things to put on your bread. A la carte is alright. One can feel that they are trying to be inventive and come up with new ideas - which works in some cases and in some it does not. Unfortunately I have experienced slow and inexperienced service occasionally.

Pros: homemade

Cons: pricey, slow service

Perfect - Edit

The first thing I would highly recommend to you is the sunday's brunch from 11 - 15 o'clock. Paying 14,50 € you will have the best breakfast buffet you will ever get! Everything is handmade, vegan and regional.
The staff is really friendly and you can also ask the cook after his recipes.
Having lunch or dinner is also really great but for students a bit expensive.
It's totally worth it! In summer, you can sit outside. But attention: Always make a reservation!

Great menu, fantastic choice of drinks - Edit

Very delicious food, I've had a carob drink which is hard to find. A bit pricey but it's worth.

Delicious Sunday brunch in a relaxed atmosphere - Edit

Having been for brunch before at the cafe that was once in the same location, we were pleased to hear that this place did veggie brunch with a focus on organic and regional ingredients.

Most of the food was vegan (with the exception being a plate of cheese) and included a mixture of hot a cold stuff, such as: bread, croissants, spreads/dips (e.g. hummus, guacamole, jam, chocolate spread), salad, fruit salad, fake meat slices (seitan), German-style potato salad, yoghurt and cereal/muesli. The hot things were a Mediterranean vegetable bolognese, a bean and mushroom casserole, potato soup, roasted pumpkin wedges, boiled potatoes, curry falafel and a pear and chocolate crumble.

The quality of the food was good and there was a good variety on offer to please most. The focus on seasonal produce was great. We paid €12.90, which includes a drink, with children between 5-11 paying €6,90 and children under 4 eating for free.

One thing to note is that although they open at 10, the hot food isn't brought out until 11:30.

Pros: Focus on organic & regional ingredients, Good value, Friendly service and relaxed atmosphere
