Gourmet vegetarian restaurant. Everything prepared with care. Everything completely delicious. Come for lunch and eat a full course meal with the locals. Very loved place right in town.

This is a gem of a place in Saint Jean - and indeed the whole of France: a warm interior with funky cardboard furniture, a small but perfectly formed menu that changes each week and a chef who cooks everything fresh under the eyes of...her guests who are both convinced vegetarians and other meat eating regulars who come back because they love the place. There’s nothing fancy here and that’s why it works - guests sip on freshly pressed fruit and veg juices (with plenty of ginger and carrots) while they watch Dina cook their generous and healthy plates of vegetables. There are also vegan options and a fabulous regular night where a local storyteller comes to entertain diners.More

Have been meaning to try this little restaurant for ages, finally managed for lunch. Such a little gem. The food was excellent as was the service. Would definitely recommend.

Do not go here....we have never been yelled to by a waitress until now. Food was tatseless, overcooked, not creative at all and way too expensive. Service is terrible...wait for hours before you get attention and when you say something about it they start yelling...at you (!). There is also a sign that says "paying by card only at € 20 or higher". Our bill was € 50+ but no cards accepted )?). Also when we asked about it, she started shouting again....terrible! If you do not want guests and serve people - don't start a restaurant!More

Had a quick lunch here. Food was really good as was the service. Unfortunately we were the only ones in and so there was no atmosphere. Would recommend to none vegetarians like myself who are looking for interesting food.

Have visited in the past and had a good experience. More recent visit was disappointing. No real choice on menu. Disinterested staff. Main interest seems to be providing smoothies which are good. Everything else seems to go by the board. Leave it for a while...to see if it improves!More

Went for a family lunch, were presented with a very limited menu. Choices made and then the wait.... after a thirty minute wait I chased up Madame who told me it would be at least another ten minutes. I asked if it could be faster...as we only had to leave in thirty minutes. I was told tough. Not her problem. We asked for the bill and were then told they don't take cards. This is not mentioned anywhere on the menu or in the restaurant -Any cards inc French ones. Appalling attitude, appalling service. Go to le scorlion it's better in every way.More

Wonderfully fresh ingredients and generous portions. Pea soup was delicious and carrot pâté full of flavour. A nice quirky place to have lunch and feel very healthy afterwards. Very friendly staff too!
