Unbelievably great

5 Posted on 08 / 26 / 2014

I loved, loved, loved this place. Every time I went it was delicious. Just note that it's in a fairly obscure location, and they really do not like people getting there after 3:30... it's basically a magical vegetarian garden in someone's home. The honor system cash box just emphasizes how truly special this place is. Note that it's the same family as the other two veg places in the area, but the taste, style, and setting is much different. If you only have time to try a few vegan places in the city, get to this little place and enjoy. Keep in mind that it's at the end of a tiny, almost hidden little alleyway, and is not marked from the outside. Just follow the directions and you'll get there; it's a little gate on your right-hand side, right before reaching the end of the street.

Pros: Magical, Scrumptious, Great staff
Cons: Limited opening hours, Hard to find

A vegan oasis in Rio de Janeiro

5 Posted on 01 / 25 / 2014

Vegana Chacara is simply awesome! Located at the end of a small dead end street in Botafogo, with no sign, you might wonder if you're stepping into someone's private yard when you lift the latch on the gate. Inside you're greeted by friendly staff and can sit either outside in the lush garden, or inside. There are two plates of the day, varying by day, and each consists of a soup or salad, followed by a main plate with several different portions on it. The food was excellent, and substantial servings to boot. Desert is also included in your 30 Reais (about $15), and the warm banana torte is a home run. Payment is cash only, in an honor system box, and don't forget to tip your server separately. Lunch only, until 2:30 PM. If you are looking for vegan or veg food in Rio, this gem is well worth seeking out!

Pros: beautiful setting outdoor/indoor, excellent food, relaxing, restorative oasis
Cons: lunch only, slightly challenging to find

Excellent

I had an excellent lunch here today, which I really enjoyed. It was soup followed by a savoury pancake with rice, beans and green vegetables, then a delicious banana cake for dessert. Everything had a very health-conscious feel to it, but still managed to be very tasty. I loved the relaxed, calm ambience and the beautiful garden, and the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. Love this place!

Pros: Great food, Set in a beautiful garden, Staff are friendly and helpful

Beautiful people and calm place.
It looks like a regular house, very clean and calm place in the city.
They serve great food: one is the traditional feijoada and the other is a plate of the day.
The food is very balanced and fresh.
Best part: voluntary payment !!!

Pros: all
Cons: none

    Why only 3 stars if there were no cons?

Beautiful and nice food!

Hans Staden is a tiny street in the middle of busy Botafogo. With only houses, its very quiet and relaxing. The house of Vegana Chacara is the one with the more exuberant garden, full of flowers, trees and various plants. There in the shade of the outdoors tables, the customers can enjoy the choice of the restaurant. They have a daily offer, with better price and 2 or 3 fixed options. The day option includes salad and dessert and people can choose to eat a whole or half portion. To drink, self made juices and teas. Its an amazing experience!

Pros: ambience, friendly staff, excellent food
Cons: open hours
