First Review by gazpacho

OK - Edit

I would actually give around 3.5 stars, the current score is lower than this so I went with 4. Some things are changed from previous reviews: price is lower, and you get a choice of potatoes, fries or salad with the burger instead of always fries. The food was good for what it was, there could have been a few more vegan choices but overall it's a nice place for a quick meal.

Pros: Good value, Some vegan options

Bland food. Cosy interior. Nice staff. - Edit

Let me start by saying that the restaurant is very nice and cosy. They have a semi-open garden space where you can sit and eat. Also the staff is very friendly and is willing to think about the vegan options.

Unfortunately they have a very messy menu, where they make no distinction between vegan and non-vegan meals, so make sure to ask.

Next to this we ordered the burger menu, which was a simple plate with a tasty but very greasy chickpea burger, some fries, some ketchup (which was kinda slapped on the plate) and some (dry) salad. It looked plain, tasted plain, but costed €16,- (!!).

The homemade iced tea (lemon/ginger) was great by the way. A simple glass costs €3,50, which is okay I guess. We also ordered plain water, which was also a simple glass (no bottle or any indication that it was more than simple tap water), that ran about €1,80.

All in all we paid €38,- for a two very very underwhelming meals. Two stars just for the staff! Will not recommend :(

Pros: Cosy garden space, Very nice staff, Staff thinks about vegan options

Cons: Expensive, Bland food

nice brasserie - Edit

nice restaurant but I was dissaponted about te fact you could have fries with your food. My mom already went here and said this was new. I am a healthy foodie and didn't expect this from a veggie restaurant.
Big plates and friendly staff though :)

Pros: cosy, friendly staff

Cons: greasy food

MMaree 14 Dec 2016 - Dear Steph, not all vegetarians/vegans are 'healthy foodies' and love fries every know and then. Let's not make ethical living about health or we will push away people that love fast food from time to time :)

Friendly veggie restaurant - Edit

We were directed to this restaurant as it was just a few minutes walk from our hotel. All dishes are vegetarian and we choose from the "burger" section of the menu. The veggie burgers were made from fresh ingredients, well flavoured and served with salad and fries. As an added bonus several of the menu choices were also gluten free. Very friendly staff and pleasant environment
