Very kind waiters with very fast service. All the food tasted very fresh. The quesadilla, the nachos and the fried cauliflower were incredible. The restaurant had a very nice atmosphere and I noticed how everyone looked so healthy.

We had a fully vegetarian guest out from India and decided to pop in on Easter Monday. We chose the hummus with bread , natchos, quesadilla and the fallafel wrap.

Plant is a genuine Vegan restaurant, where the food is tasty, well presented and varied, the non-vegans among us also loved it! All this in a warm ambience with great service.

I had a breakfast that became lunch with a friend. The food was beautifully prepared and we were told upfront what wan't available on the menu which was a lovely touch. Water is served without asking (or payment expected) which is another lovely small touch. The service was efficient and the waiter was knowledgeable. It was a wonderful experience.

Food was fresh and original. Great vibe with live band on the Saturday evening. However menu was a bit limited and there were no desserts. I was really looking forward to some nice vegan cakes and desserts.

This vegan spot absolutely stands out. We enjoyed tasty and filling meals (recommended by the waiter), which exceeded our expectations. The waiter was really helpful and answered all our questions and recommended meals. Its centrally located with a cozy and chilled atmosphere. As a vegetarian, It was great to have a lot of options to choose from.

We are vegetarians but anyone would like this delicious food. We had lunch here every day for five straight days and always found something good to eat. If you can, go on Tuesday or Saturday evening, when they have a great band. Can be a bit of a wait when they are busy, but the food is definitely worth waiting... More

Lovely space and organic design, very careful choice of ingredients and options available, even if they were not always available during our visits. Delicious gluten free brownie! Found live music very loud and somewhat disturbing...for the place and dimensions.. Thank you for having us!
