My new favourite eatery

I came here with a friend on a Friday evening, having booked a table beforehand. As a veggie for 23 years I can't quite understand why I haven't been here before, and I now feel that I have 23 years of catching up to do! I can't fault anything about the food or the service. We skipped starters... read more

Really enjoyed our meal here to celebrate our daughter's birthday. Great food and so nice to be somewhere where my daughter could have ordered anything! It was also great for my other daughter who doesn't like cheese and for me who is gluten free- even noticed gluten free beer on the menu. I loved the mushroom bourguignon- such good flavours...

Love this place! The food is amazing, really well cooked and presented. Friendly staff and lovely buzz about the place. It's an absolute gem for vegetarians and my meat eating friends loved it too. Put it on your "must visit" list (go for dinner, lunch food is also great but the menu is a little limited) That said, the veggie... More

I had the burrito and it was very good, even speaking as a Texan in the UK! The service was friendly and fast, and they even arranged a birthday brownie for my Sister. I wish I could go back and try more things on the menu.

It was so hard to choose out of all the amazing options. The mix of flavours were interesting and absolutely delicious. We want to go back again and again and eat our way through the entire menu! Highly recommended.

On March 14th I helped my girlfriend to move to Easton. After moving I decided to take her and her friends who had helped to a local restaurant for lunch. Upon arrive we weren't greeted, just told "We won't be able to seat you" by a very grumpy bearded gentleman. I don't have a problem with a restaurant being too... More

Genuinely one of the best dining experiences I have ever had - menu changes regularly but if you get a chance to try the jerk halloumi starter then don't hesitate Caters very well for vegans also, and the staff are very friendly Remember to book in advance (and don't go on monday without checking if its open)

Ordered off of the Christmas menu, I had beetroot carpaccio to start and smoky dolmidos for main. Both of which were delicious and my partner enjoyed his dishes equally! As a vegan it is such a privilege to go somewhere with varied choices and inventive cooking. The service was fabulous and the atmosphere relaxed, it is only small so would... More

I came here with a vegetarian friend with whom I was staying in Bristol, and it's his favourite restaurant. I have eaten here once before and was very pleased, and the food was (mostly) excellent this time, too. I had the jerk marinated halloumi as a starter, which was delicious - I'm used to halloumi being rather dry and chewy... More
