Who says healthy food doesn't taste great? Food was the best thing during the stay! Breakfast and dinner will be served at the Flow and lunch is served at Mojo Restaurant.

Their menu follows the "Earth to Table" concept bringing together their four pillars which are Mind, Microbiome, Skin and Energy. Seafood, meat and vegetarian options are all available and there are plenty of dishes to try out every day.

You will see fermented pickled vegetables are repeated in many dishes as a garnish but this is a great way to sustain their food waste and they go well with absolutely everything. Make sure you try their homemade kombuchas too!
