First up, the atmosphere here is great: dim lighting, clean, spacious. But that's about where the positives end for me. While the menu is long, and it sounds inventive, there's not much here that's actually that original. And for the price, it's just not worth...More

This might be one of the oldest vegetarian restaurants in europe. The buffet is huge with so much choice and different tastes. I never saw a vegetarian restaurant like this. It's amazing.
