Never disappointed (unless we cannot get a table). The outdoor setting is fantastic, so is the food and so are the staff.

Not specifically. There are meatfree dishes but they usually contain fish or seafood. You can always opt for just vegetables. If you want vegetarian, you should go to a vegetarian restaurant, of which there are few.
