Ok but not many choices

Posted on 08 / 27 / 2013

Seems to be a vegetarian restaurant. They have a few meat substitute dishes.

The menu is obviously in Spanish but none of their staff can speak English which made life a little difficult. After a few "sin huevo, sin lactosa"s, they got the picture.

but not many main course dishes to choose from. Seems to be mainly Italian style, which seems odd for a Latin American restaurant.

Price I thought was reasonable, but I don't have much experience in this country to compare it with.

Pros: Veggie restaurant, Clean
Cons: Not much choice

It was OK

Posted on 01 / 03 / 2012

At around 12:10pm they have a lunch buffet. And this is actually a real "buffet," all you can eat. But it was $9.90 a person, which is a lot pricier than the other vegetarian restaurants, but it IS all you can eat!? The day I went they had a little salad bar, some baked veggies, potato/cheese empanadas, homemade fuax meat, a tasteless soup and a really awful chowmein. They also served a choice of juice drinks or jamaica. One of my friends with me really liked it, I didn't care for their buffet much personally. And the whole place has some kind of Sai Baba/Diksha quasi-spiritual motif going on. Meh. I prefer the cheaper and more homely "Sol y Luna" restaurant near the university. This was was out of the way too. Oh, and for directions, it's just West of the Mascota and Azales intersection. They have their own parking too.

Pros: decent variety, all-you-can-eat (buffet time), Nice drinks come with buffet
Cons: Pricey, Awful chow mein, tasteless soup

Decent Selection

This is a decent vegetarian restaurant--though deep in a residential neighborhood at the west end of town. I went for dinner, and they didn't have the buffet then (just for lunch), but they still had pupusas (some of which can be made vegan), veggieburgers, tamales, tacos (Salvadoran style), fruit juices, etc.

Pros: has vegan options, friendly staff
Cons: a bit out of the way, a little expensive
