Went to look for Lotus on our last visit and found the owners had sold it and is not De Plaats. Nice bar area and excellent veggie food. Very friendly and will be returning there in November.

Tried to visit because it looked great on Trip Advisor only to find it hear closed down. Another restaurant had taken over the site. They were friendly and it looked ok but we didn't eat there.

I was recommended this restaurant by the owner of the guesthouse I was staying in and I was not disappointed. I ordered the large vegetable plate (which featured a selection of vegetarian food and salads) and my partner had the moussaka (which was probably the only non-vegetarian meal on the menu.) Both were delicious and tasted fresh and homemade. It... More

Nice cafe that we hunted for in the town, and found this vegetarian place for lunch. Great atmosphere with good hot food in the cold weather. Really enjoyed the drinks, coffee and food.

We had a very simple lunch consisting of: 4 cheese quiche, and vegetable lasagne & small salad. Everything was fresh, tasty, & delicious. Many other dinners... More

We popped in here for lunch one day and were lucky to get a table, as it is obviously very popular. The menu is quite simple, and they are only open for lunch, but the food is absolutely lovely. Whether you are vegetarian or not, this place hits all the right spots. We had the veggie lasagne and the lamb... More

This restaurant was recommended by Rick Steeves for its value. But my husband and I found it overpriced. We were especially upset to pay 1.6 euro for 8 ounces of tap water. The chocolate pie/cake is ordinary.
