“Love it, veggie heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

I am truly sad I don't live anywhere near Rotterdam, because I would be a regular customer here if I did. What an amazing place! All food is biological and vegetarian, home-cooked and delicious. Buffet-style restaurant (also take-away). You pay for the weight of the food you pile onto your plate. Lots of variety and choice, soups, salads, deep fries, desserts etc. Each dish has all ingredients listed, so gluten, sugar and lactose-free options are easily found. A true inspiration for the homecook who wants to try some new vegetarian/vegan dishes. I love it!

“Great food and variety!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Buffet style, pay-by-weight, and really delicious food! Lots of variety and dishes that are not often vegan unless you make them yourself. Vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free are labeled. They also sell beer and have a nice indoor dining area, as well as some tables outside.

“Exceeding my expectations!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Staying in the Netherlands for around more than three weeks i wanted to try out some different sort of taste. My friend being a vegetarian asked that we had lunch there. Well i was pretty surprised by the very palatable dishes at a very reasonable price. I even travelled from Delft to Rotterdam just to enjoy the food again before returning back to Mauritius. Worth a try!!!

“Best (and pretty much only) vegan place in downtown Rotterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

This is a beacon of light in an otherwise meat-and-cheese dominated city. A buffet place with an estimated 80% vegan dishes, which are fresh, very tasty, and plenty (the other 20% do contain dairy and/or eggs, but no meat or fish). The ambience is lovely - simple, but stylish furniture, two levels, and, as is customary in a buffet place, self-service. Price of food according weight of your plate. Also try their fresh veggie or fruit juices and yummy pastry. There is only one downside: The place is closed on Sundays. Otherwise: my favorite restaurant in Rotterdam.
