“where the locals go . . .”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Delightful atmosphere, with well presented healthy food that is nonetheless delicious and interesting. I often meet friends there for lunch. There's a fixed lunch menu with a vegetarian option (just as good). In the evening it is more expensive. Make sure you call to book a table if you want to eat there at lunch time - after midday it fills up very quickly!

“Good lunch spot and a great concept”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

This restaurant employs up to 20 disabled people and aims to train them in the kitchen, as serving staff, etc. There is a daily set lunch of three courses with a veggy option. Although a short walk from the city centre it is well worth finding and supporting this place. We've eaten there many times and always been impressed by the quality of the food and the value for money, quite apart from the fact that by eating there you are supporting a very worthwhile enterprise.
