Arrived on a Tuesday at around 19.20, restaurant about 60% occupied, great atmosphere and very friendly reception. Neither garden nor rooms upstairs being used and maybe 3 tables outside at the front. Theoretically no great pressure on kitchen/serving staff. Order taken by owner; one salad...More

Spinoza's separate vegan menu (ask for it!) offers plenty of choice. We tried about half of the dishes listed (we dined twice at the restaurant) and were never disappointed.

We had initially avoided Spinoza's because it just did not look appealing, but at 1800 it still had the sun shining on the outside seats so we gave it a go. Long story short: €93 for 2x starters, 2x mains, 2x dessert, 1x Spinoza coffee...More

Used to come here 3 times a year, this time I came with my girlfriend for a nice diner. We could pick our own table since we were reasonably early. After we sat down the waitress seemed tired or something, anyway we ordered some drink...More
