Modern, classy, vegan cuisine and very affordable. Atmosphere was relaxed and cool, staff were very helpful. Menu all sounded great. Hoummous starter really good (smoked paprika!). The quinoa and spiced sweet potato dish was excellent. Will be back very soon. Real tap water!

My partner is vegan and I've become used to only having very limited choices when it comes to eating out with him - Indian, Thai or Chinese restaurants mainly. He especially struggles to find vegan food on holiday, so when we spotted this place online we felt it worth a long drive to go for dinner, having been surviving on pasties and the odd not-great pub meal.
It was certainly worth it. The restaurant is small and the surroundings clean and pleasant, the staff friendly. However, the food was outstanding.
Everything we had was wonderfully prepared: full of flavour, attractively served and filling too! Unusual flavour combinations lifted vegan staples like refried beans and hummus out of the ordinary and made us really glad we came. The desserts were rich and delicious too - especially the chocolate brownie and chocolate & hazelnut ice-cream. Heartily recommended!

We had lunch here. There is a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere and the friendly, attentive staff were more than happy to explain the menu. The refried beans with squash and avocado tacos were as good if not better than any we had in Mexico earlier this year! We are not vegan or even vegetarian but did not miss meat at all in the dishes we chose because they were full of interesting flavour combinations, really tasty and beautifully presented. The food we saw being served to other customers also looked so good it was a pity we could not manage to eat more. Delicious!!!

Very good food for vegans and vegetarians. I wish there were more than three main courses on the menu. I had the humours for starters, quinoa for main and vegan ice-cream and they were delicious; recommend them all.

Highly impressed with the food at this place. Had a spiced quinoa salad and it was finger lickingly good. The hummus is also fantastic. Good service and enjoyed the friendly relaxed atmosphere.
