The Timeout description of Sol Semilla aka Voy Alimento aka Bar des Artisans raised unmet expectations. We paid a very large price for a very small pile of adequate but uninspiring food. We were starving at the end of our meal. We felt exploited. Vegan food can be much much better than this & much less meagre. I always wondered why vegans looked so scraggy, now I know. They live in Paris & frequent substandard vegan restaurants. If this place was to add another name to the list, I'd suggest Le Anorexic Vegan. The only plus point was the lovely, lovely service. Thank you for lightening an otherwise disappointing experience. For those who want to experience vegan food at its best and most generous look no further than the Garden Cafe in Woodstock, USA

Time Out says
If ‘veganism’ sounds like a bland and tasteless proposition to you, beware: Sol Semilla, the Bar des Artisans, may just change your mind. This jolly spot is home to a happy and good humoured veganism, which makes good use of super foods – those natural ingredients (copaiba, urucum, acai, acerola, purple corn, etc.) which are crammed with vitamins and minerals. These are also sold in the grocery store under the brand ‘Alimento Voy’. On the restaurant side, they toss salads, create colourful dishes, spice juices, spoon out delicious soups and produce amazing healthy desserts.
