A standard Ecuadorian lunch place frequented by locals (be prepared to share a table with someone else). Set lunch menu ($2.25) includes small salad bar, soup, main course and dessert. Lunch is all vegan with the exception of cake made with eggs at times. Also serves breakfast with fewer vegan options. Price: Inexpensive more-less

El Vegetariano was hopping when i arrived around 12:30 for lunch.

Food was great and on this day the lunch special was all vegan, so i got to try a variety of local flavors and everything was good.

Table sharing is the norm during the busy hours, which for me was a plus, as i got to meet a friendly local.

Enjoy!

Pros: Tasty local food, reasonably vegan-friendly, very inexpensive
Cons: Not open for dinner

First time on apply cow and was delighted to find vegan food in Quito! This was wonderful!! $5.00 for 2 complete lunches: brown rice, squash soup, entrees, empanadas-- wide variety! All delicious!! The atmosphere is simple and no frills. Went there on 2 consecutive lunches and found a great selection of soups, main dishes, empanadas, etc both days.

Pros: Delicious, Cheap, Goo selection

I've had lunch at El Vegetariano several times, and while it's not as good as nearby Govindas, it's still a nice place in the old town of Quito. The restaurant is frequented by locals, street vendors as well as businessmen, and can sometimes be crowded. The staff is friendly, but does not really know what's vegan and what's not. If you're in doubt, ask the lady at the counter instead of the waitress. They don't have a written menu, so some spanish is necessary if you want to know what's todays deal.

Pros: Good value, Fast service, Not touristy
Cons: Little untidy/unclean, Vegan uncertainty
