Wonderful experience

I'm not sure why one reviewer said the menu was "uninspired". Maybe it was before the new owners took over. There were lots of excellent choices, and everything is made fresh when you order. Great selection of juices and smoothies. My polenta was perfectly prepared. We read a lot of menus that day, and "El Tomato" definitely had the greatest variety of options and the best prices on veggie options in the centro district. Certainly not cheap by Mexican standards, but the portions were perfect, the service was excellent, and the place was bright and comfortable.

Pros: great food, good service , convenient location

Very basic food

This restaurant is not 100% vegetarian. The food is pretty basic and uninspiring and the menu isn't all that creative... but it was a nice place to go for a very casual vegetarian meal.

Pros: Location, Owner is friendly
Cons: Food is very basic, Not 100% veg.
