I've been a vegan for over 25 years' but I'm no raw foodist, which is really what this place is all about. I enjoyed my falafel and salads but I'm not sure I'd make a return trip. The energy balls were excellent though :-)

If you like your food with a dose of hypocrisy here's the place to come. The first thing I asked for was a coffee but was condescendingly informed by one of the staff coffee wasn't served because it wasn't healthy - he obviously missed the health warnings about smoking as he seemed to have no problem puffing away outside. They sell bottles of water there which they proudly label "fluoride free" but also sell a large selection of green teas (green teas containing more fluoride than tap water). I came here for their advertised buffet for 10 Euro but they don't seem to know what a buffet is and instead had an average set menu of hot chocolate, mains (salad and little bean patty curiosity) and tiny dessert. That said, the dessert was quite nice and the rest of the staff friendly. Won't be going again though.

Really great tasting food at extraordinary prices (€10 will get you a special that will leave you full to the brim and grinning lazily). The owner, Pat, is passionate about serving food that is really good for you and will make you happy too. The evening meals, if you're lucky to catch one, feature exciting experiments that show just how good vegan cooking can be - flavoursome, with great variety of texture and colour).

It's a great place too to meet some of the many more free-spirited and alternative people of Cork and to find out what's going on in that world.

The carpeted raised area at the back, covered in cushions and featuring plenty of thoughtful decor is the perfect place to chill out and there is a bookshelf full of inspiring reading on everything from ayurveda and nutrition to celtic astrology (that's a favourite of mine ;-) )

This is a true gem in Cork. I have been quite a few times now. The setting along with the food is something that is unique and unbelievably tasty! There is an area at the back in which you can take off your shoes and sit on cushions, relax and enjoy your food. There are tables at the front. The smoothies are amazing also. My little girl who is 8 adores the green smoothie and I'm sure she got her vitamin intake in one go in this place! I would highly recommend this place and everyone I have brought to it agree it is wonderful. They do a buffet on Wednesday and Thursday nights and it is only €10 for 3 courses! Vegan, vegetarian or even carnivore you will not be disappointed here.

This is a great resturaunt with a really creative menu that makes super healthy foods exciting (check out the raw pizza to see what I mean). The atmosphere is really welcoming with a bright colourful decor, displaying art from local artists and an oriental style section at the back where you can sit on a raised floor area with cushions and a low table. There is a real community feel with raw buffet nights and craft nights, and lots of health realted books left out for your perusal. This is a healthy resturaunt with real integrity. Overall its worth a visit just for the experience -you won't come across this kind of cuisine often.
