“Great as a vegetarian, but ....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

Good selection, but no air conditioning in the summer, and about $18 for a plate of buffet food and no beverage. not bad but used to be better..I eat at these in Montreal and Toronto also so I knew what to expect.

“perfect for eat in or takeout”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2012

Vegetarian by-weight buffet with well-marked ingredients (gluten, dairy, vegan, etc) and good variety. Food is "ok" to "good" but 5 stars for convenience and knowing they'd have something I could eat. Soy/dairy-free chocolate cake was soooooo good. Got some 'to go' after having it at dinner AND returned the next night for more!

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

5-stars only because it seems to be the only all vegetarian game in town. Great selection, reasonably priced, and some of the dishes were actually quite delicious. They had offerings for a variety of restricted diets including vegetarian, vegan and gluten free.

“Nice vegetarian buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2012

It was nice to have so many choices since my family has such a variety of food sensitivities. The building is nothing special, but the food was good.

“Used to be so much better.....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2011

Every time we visit Québec City we have at least 3 to 4 meals here and it used to be an excellent choice. However this time we were disappointed with many of the vegetarian dishes on the cold buffet table. Soggy spinach sallad, watery coleslaw, dry cheeses. The hot buffet was much better and the dessert table is worth all the extra calories. It used to be difficult to obtain a table at this restaurant. Not this time. You can bring your own wine. When you check out the plate is weighed and you pay $ 22.00 per kilo for the cold and hot buffet dishes, $ 25.50 per kilo for the delicious cakes etc. This vegetarian restaurant is part of a chain with restaurants in Montreal and Toronto.
