Nice restaurant

4 Posted on 04 / 02 / 2014

Very nice restaurant. Food was a bit bland but there are some seasonings to put on the food. The staff is nice and the place was crowded at noon. It was located just behind the hostel I was staying, so the location was perfect.
I went on a saturday, so the buffet + a regular orange juice was about 400 pesos - not that cheap, but Montevideo as a whole is expensive so...

Pros: central location, good food
Cons: a bit expensive

Good buffet.

This place offers a good buffet, which has numerous vegan options. If you're hungry you can choose the 'all you can eat' option.

They also have a shop at the back where you can buy fresh vegan snacks like empanadas.

Pros: All you can eat, Good vegan options

Great buffet

If you are hungry in Montevideo, this is the place for you. The all you can eat buffet costs 300 pesos uruguayos. The staff is aware of the (many) vegan options.

Pros: great value, excellent food
Cons: too much fried stuff

great if you're hungry

In a city that serves predominantly meat eaters, this cafe is great. It is close to the Plaza Independencia. The buffet style eatery is all you can eat for 300 Uruguayan pesos. But they don't speak English so touch up your Spanish before coming here.

Pros: delicious, wide variety
Cons: not hugely friendly , a little confusing

A tracional chinese vegetarian restaurant. Is in the best option in the center of Montevideo. In saturday it is a bit expensive, 280 pesos urugayos or 14,80 dolars. Vegans can eat here and find very much options.

Pros: It has free-GMO soy

Very good all-you-can-eat buffet

4 Posted on 02 / 20 / 2013

My girlfriend and I ate there 2 days ago (18 Feb 2013). We had the all-you-can-eat buffet for 280 pesos, drinks are extra, e.g. a fresh orange juice for 60 pesos. It wasn't labelled which food is vegan and we had to ask, so you should be able to speak Spanish. The food was very good and worth the money when you can eat a lot, otherwise you have the option to pay by weight for the take-away food.
They had pizza, unfortunately not vegan. Also for the dessert, only fruits were suitable, not the creams, etc. It would be nice if they offered a vegan version of the so typical dulce de leche.

Pros: Very good fake meat, Many vegan options, Clean and quiet
Cons: Vegan options not labelled, No English spoken, Limited vegan desserts

Bambu Restaurant & Health food shop

4 Posted on 03 / 04 / 2011

I just had an amazing meal there yesterday (03March2011). It is now an all you can eat buffet. It is not cheap, but it is by far the best one in the city for vegetarian food. Excellent choices both for vegan and vegetarian. If it was not so expensive I would eat there every day of this week I am here. You can also buy healthy snacks and drinks in the shop part of this place. Great meal, don't miss it!

Pros: excellent food, clean, relaxing music
Cons: expensive
