They usually unlock the door at street level a little after 12 noon. Go upstairs and pick any table (most tables were occupied by 1220pm, so I would get there early, and be willing to share your table if necessary).

I went twice while I was in Tunja. Both times the set meal included a big bowl of soup, juice drink, dessert, and a plate with 4 items. The first time I went, I didn't think there was enough protein on the plate. The second time there were beans. Both times the meals were very heavy on starchy items (example: rice, beans, plantains on one plate).

I wish there had been some veggies, such as broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, etc. Anything green would have been nice. This was the only veggie place in town that I could find. The meal of the day is 8.000 pesos as of January 2014.

Pros: Location, Price
Cons: Too much starch/carbs on the plate, Food not unique in any way, Flavors nothing special

the best recommendation: mobbed with locals

I found this restaurant by chance as I was wandering around Tunja looking for something to eat. I walked upstairs to find all the rooms completely jam-packed with locals. I told the staff I would return later, but they wedged me into a table with a local grandmother, who proved to be quite charming. When I jokingly said there were a lot of vegetarians in Tunja, she said, "No, just a few, but it's because the food is so delicious." There is no higher endorsement of a restaurant.

And indeed the food was delicious, starting with soup, then a big plate of brown rice and several prepared veggies and salad. Papaya juice and a small dessert rounded it out, for 7,000 COP. BTW, the woman's plate was smaller; she said she was having a "medio" (medium), so that's available for light eaters.

The set lunch was vegan, but I did see fried eggs going out on some plates, so it's not 100% vegan.
