Enjoyed lunch on the back terrace which is quite pleasant surrounded by plants and lots of fresh air.

The portions are quite large and filling. It was difficult to choose from all the veg options. Overall the food was tasty.

Next time I will pass on the fresh juice as it was green but tasted like water.

I find it so frustrating when a restaurant advertises itself a 'vegan' and then they serve you food that has cheese -_____-

Really great, fresh food. Creative cuisine. I highly recommend the bowls. Friendly staff, even when I had an issue of them not putting cream into my drink as stated on the menu, they dealt with it nicely (I had to prod a bit and not give up, but response was fine). Drink would be boring and overpriced without the cream.

We don´t have many vegan places in San José now, I guess they need competition in order to improve! They used to be really good. Now they always lack ingredients, so when you order, they come back a few minutes later to tell you that they don´t have some ingredient for the dish you intended to eat, so ALWAYS have a plan B and C. I can manage that, but last time they said they didn´t have beans, and when I said I wouldn´t eat there, then they said they did have beans... so it is eaither they are getting too lazy to prepare certain meals or they just don´t care about customers at all, I got the feeling they want to scare away customers so they have an excuse to shot down the restaurant... I really don´t understand... I won´t come back there! I don´t recommended at all!

We've been there twice now, and both times the food was absolutely great. Very tasty, great selection of international dishes, and enough of it to satisfy even a very hungry person. All this at resonable, if not cheap, prices.

Food is served in a half-open space, with maybe the only thing to complain about being the kitchens loud fan. But choose a place not directly next to it and you'll be fine.
