We went to this restaurant after 10 days of trekking and it was exactly what we needed. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, fresh and healthy food. We wanted to try every single salad! We highly recommend it to anyone in need of some non-fried food !!

The greenery ambiance turns you zen. The veggie pasta is mouthwatering and kale quinoa salad is really good. Amazing cocktails. I recommend the ginger mule. So refreshing.
