“Delicious food, a hidden quiet corner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Brac is on a small street and unless we had looked for it, we would not even have noticed it walking by it. But once you walk through the narrow and dim entrance, it extends to the inside and is a quiet peaceful, relaxing corner with delicious vegetarian food. Great for lunch, dinner, or just to sit, read and relax with a cup of tea or some wine. Definitely worth a visit.

“Go go go, but make a reservation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

First of all make a reservation as it's not a very big restaurant, but it is worth the effort. I went with my parents and none of us are vegetarian (both my parents are avid meat eaters). It was fantastic, a calm relaxed atmosphere, great wine, fantastic food, huge portions and the price is not high. If you ever wanted to try a vegetarian restaurant but never have, then make this your first!

“Alternative and cosy setting with great veggie food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

You won't find it by just wandering around, but it is worth going there. Be sure to make a reservation

“Veggie Wow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

The Brac had been recommended to us and once we found it, we were not deceived!
We loved the veggie food (although we are not vegetarians) and can only recommend it. The service was very friendly and price/value absolutely top. My husband had some cramps during the night but I think this might be due to not being used to the oil/herbs etc.

“My word, how wondrous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

My mom and I are visiting from California. Brac was recommended to us by a local, who is not vegetarian and loves the establishment. Suffice to say we were lucky to have been squeezed in early without a res (necessary!) and we were enraptured by the creative, fresh (literally and figuratively) extraordinary cuisine. I would like to marry the cook! Simple, yet inventive. The ambiance is fun too. Books abound. I could eat pasta every day, but it was so refreshing after doing so for two weeks as a vegetarian in Italy, to have something new and fresh. Highly recommend this spot. Really special. We made a reservation for two days later!
