“Worse than terrible.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

From the moment we arrived, we were met with that bad service most people have mentioned already. The young, bleach blonde haired man was prepared to turn us away (even though there was a high table that we could wait at while a table became free) while the other girl who was there sat us way up the back. His attitude remained cold, 'too cool' and rude the whole time. Our drinks came after 30 minutes of waiting, the excuse being "oh the big table took up your drink time". Fair enough, but shouldn't you have got the quick 2 person order out of the way before starting the 12 person order?

We both ordered the 'Lumberjack' breakfast with vegan bacon. Big mistake. The scrambled eggs came with no ingredients other than egg (no salt or cream/milk mixed in) and the vegan bacon tasted like what an old inner sole would taste. French toast was dry and bland.

The atmosphere is definitely not what one would expect looking at the menu or the website. It's cold, rude and pretentious - nothing like the cool, relaxed vibe we were expecting.

We waited at our table for a while before finally getting up and paying at the counter as we left.

This place sucks, avoid.

“Food is ok. Staff is nice though. Free wifi.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

The food is ok, nothing to write home about. It's moderately priced and was close to our hotel (Arcotel). The staff was super nice though.

“excellent service great breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

We used this restaurant for breakfast as we were staying nearby. The food was healthy and excellent. the brown seeded bread was terrific. Great choice of breakfasts including pancakes and waffles and fruit and cereals and egg dishes. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. food was beautifully presented. Would recommend breakfast here. As it is vegetarian, I would not recommend it for w hearty dinner

“Vegetarian restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Again, we checked the trip advisor and thought that we should try this place. on our last night.

As we entered the door, it smelled beautiful and the food looked so freshly made!

We were seated and the waitress brought us the menu. We started reading and noticed there was no meat on the menu. So, we asked the waiter and he showed us the 2nd page. It actually had an add-ons colum with a choice of 3 to 4 meats (80g each) for 6 Euros.

We looked at each other and really felt like eating meat as we haven't had lunch that day.

So, we got up and left.

Nothing wrong with the restaurant, but we really wanted to eat more meat (at least 125g) but not 80g. What a shame.
