I ate here for three nights while attending a nearby conference. The steak hot plate was good, with mash and hazelnut salad. The specials are tasty and worth a look. The only meal I was disappointed with was the salt and pepper chicken, which looked so juicy, but was a bit dry. The beer isn't great. Service is good and the atmosphere is relaxed and quiet.

The special, braised rabbit leg was delicious but the small serving of vegetables was overpriced. In addition, half of them were cold.

We don't have fast food healthy restaurants in Florida. This place would be a regular for us if it was close! There were so many choices and most all of them were organic or prepared healthy. And flourless desserts were a bonus! It was great to be able to walk in and eat in a few minutes without waiting for a server. It's more a cafeteria style or walk up type place, and it was amazing! Wish we had one here in Orlando!

Everyone in our party had the Big Plate wherein you choose a main item (our party had: albacore, salt/pepper chix, chipotle barbq chix, and the grilled veggies), added the mashed potatoes and the salad (with various offerings for the salad). I found the tuna optimally cooked - just the right amount and great quality such that it was melt-in-your-mouth great. Overall the chix items were fine (although they were the end pieces and had tendons or other issues which were a bit hard/chewy) as was the grilled veggies. The biggest complaint all of us had was with the seasoning - it needed more. If you didn't have the skin to the chix, there wouldn't have been much flavor. The mashed potatoes were good, but nothing spectacular. The salads were very flavorful and did have the right amount of dressing for most of us.

We also had the cheese plate which was a big hit with a good variety of unique cheeses. The biggest complaint being not enough bread.

Prices seemed very reasonable for dinner, would be pricey if the same menu is used for lunch.

Loved the setting of this particular location not very far from downtown.

Would definitely go again.
