Really good food

This restaurant is now called Bouque Garin and it offers an amazing vegetarian buffet for R$20,00 Monday - Saturday and R$25,00 on Sunday. It is an all you can get and there is plenty for vegans as well. Buffet includes juice, water, coffee and tea. They also have a small store with many homemade items.

Pros: Excellent Food, Good Value, Friendly Staff

Good Taste and Variety

I liked this buffet--probably the 2nd best I had in Brazil after Refeitorio Organico in Rio. They had a lot of vegetarian versions of Brazilian dishes, including feijoada. Big salad selection. This was all you can eat--currently at R$16.50 (if I remember correctly) and included juice and desserts. I give this 4 stars, but it's probably really closer to 4 1/2 (if it were completely vegan, it'd get 5).

Pros: good veg feijoada, tasty, good selection
Cons: not vegan, though vegan-friendly, isn't open for dinner

One of Brazil's Best

5 Posted on 07 / 09 / 2008

Visited this restaurant on all three days I was in Curitiba and the fact I went back meant it was of the best standard of any I visited in Brazil this time. There is a wide option of salads and cooked foods and plenty for any vegetarian and vegans to choose from. The restaurante stays open from 11am until 3pm. Although limited in English the owners seemed justifiably proud of maintaining their standards that went beyond just a business interst that extended was essentially central to their lifestyle.

Pros: High standard, Clean, Wide Variety
Cons: Lunchtime only
