“Very nice (mostly vegan) food in a cosy location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

The waiter (I think he owns the place as well) was very friendly, the food was delicious and we ate there two times (we only stayed two days in Coimbra). It was not easy to find the place.
Very special was the dessert of the day (a very nice vegan tiramisu).

“Definitely worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2010

I was extremely happy to find a vegan/vegetarian restaurant in Coimbra. The place is perhaps not the easiest to find, back of a shopping centre, on the 2nd floor but this place is definitely worth a visit. The waitresses spoke English and were passionate about the food and happily to explain each dish to me. Unfortunately, the restaurant is not as busy as it should because of its location and also because of the mentality of the locals, so If you do visit Coimbra, please show you’re support and visit Molho de Brocolos.

“Excellent organic vegan food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2009

Considering we've found very little vegetarian food eating out on our trip in Portugal, we were delighted to find this place. A great range of certified organic vegan food plus a couple of vegetarian dishes with egg and one meat-based meal. The location isn't great, tucked away on the 2nd floor at the back of a slightly run-down shopping centre, but the food and staff make up for it. Very nice to see that the staff really care about the food - where it comes from, how healthy it is, how it's prepared, how it's grown, etc - and the service is excellent, the waitress explained everything on the menu to us in English and provided a gluten-free variation on one of the dishes. They even had vegan whipped cream (aka chantilly)! Loved it.

“A great find near Santa Cruz”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2009

Looking for something different and hopefully a great salad, my fiancée and I took the time to seek out this quaint little restaurant. It was quit a search, with the restaurant located on the second floor of a partially empty shopping mall called Avenida. There are no windows and the restaurant shares the mall's aging bathroom, but it's clear the owners put a great deal of effort into making the restaurant as clean and comfortable as possible. Service is outstanding, with everything explained clearly and kindly. The food was good as well; the tofu is superior to the seitan, although both are good. However, the salads are the real stars in these meals. Some of the best salad I've had in Portugal or elsewhere. Heartily recommended.

“Excellent vegetarian restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2009

While travelling trough Portugal, finding vegetarian food isn't always that easy. In Coimbra, we found this nice restaurant (after a lot of running around... it's located on the second floor of a somewhat shady shopping center), and it was a nice change. The prices are reasonable.

This small restaurant offers a selection of diverse vegetarian or vegan meals and even one beef-burger for those who have to accompany their vegetarian/vegan friends. Organic products are used almost exclusively.

We had the two soups (both good, but the beetroot soup was better), two meals (especially the tofu prepared in an oven was excellent) and two desserts (the homemade coffee-soaked-cookie-soy-creme-cake is definately worth a try). The wine we had was excellent as well.

The service was very comforting and ready to explain everything.

Definately worth a visit!!!
