In the shadow of a volcano

Posted on 01 / 30 / 2014

I was only passing through for the night and had a walk through town in the afternoon before heading out for dinner in the evening. The buildings are very unassuming from the outside and Sabe Rico was no different. At firs the chocolate shop threw me off and then when I walked through to the back it felt like I was in someones garden - but scattered arround in their own little corners were tables. Great atmosphere and lovely gardens. I had a fantastic vegan gluten free meal - with a guacamole starter and hybiscus drink. I found the lentil stew hit the spot and left very satisfied and motivated enough to wtite a review!

I cant compare to anywhere else but when I left I thought back to 2 American girls I saw with a domino pizza box in their hands and thought to myself they have come all this way and are missing out on a great experience - all in the shadow of a volcano.

Pros: Wide selection , Has organic / local meat options, Traditional and international
Cons: I was eating alone, cant give it 5 stars

Decent choice for vegetarians, but a bit hyped

A good number of vegetarian/vegan options, but a lot of meat on the menu as well. Staff is knowledgeable. Beautiful garden. Food was okay and not particularly great value (small portions). The place seems to be a health-food store, food seller, and chocolateria as well. The chocolates were not great. Overall, they seem to be trying to do too much with the result that the core business - good food presumably - may suffer. Nonetheless, it has a lot of choices for vegetarians.

Many tasty options, beautiful garden

Posted on 01 / 11 / 2013

The food was really good. The menu has a vegetarian section and other vegetarian options in other parts of the menu. Most were vegan or could be made vegan. I especially recommend the amazing portobella sandwich, so delicious we both ordered a second (it's really small though, you may *have* to order a second). The lentil stew was fine but boring. The chili relleno was tasty. The garden we ate in was really beautiful. It was lovely.

Pros: pretty, yummy, many options
