Great concept where the restaurant provides food for people who cannot pay. It's a 3 course meal. The food is nutritious, but average at best. Don't go there expecting gourmet food.

No. There are several anonymous staff members who are working there as a result of challenges they have experienced drinking alcohol. As a result, no alcohol is allowed on the premises out of respect for these volunteers.
