The food looks great, tastes great! I was here with 2 of my friends, but they have larger tables for bigger groups (for six)

This is the best vegetarian place I've been seen in the area. The food was great and you should come here with an empty stomach. The personal is really nice and kind. Lovely experience!

It's a great place to sit outside. The music is good (decent sound system as well), the place looks very welcoming (lots of wood, colorfull). The service is attentive and friendly. Most important of all: The food is good. Nevertheless my plate (a Moroccan rice dish), which was tasty, was very simple and I think - based on how cheap... More

The garden is nice during the summer but inside it's just too small and crowded. Some food are excellent but I also had some which I just couldn't finish. I'd say go and try it, you will probably find something even if you are not vegetarian or vegan.

Pros first: - it's close to the city center, quite a good location and its garden is nice (if you are trying it in the summer). - great for vegetarians/vegans/raw vegans or simply fans of veggies.
