Wonderful home cooked meals - Edit

The space itself is nothing fancy but the food is excellent. I really like the soups they make. The staff is very friendly. They have a "soup plate" which is usually fresh slices of papaya. They have nice fresh fruit juices like pineapple and lulo. Every time I go there it's so cheap I have to leave a big tip.

Great food - Edit

A great vegetarian restaurant with lots of vegan dishes, food is very tasty and portions are huge. 4500 for a lunch as for august 2016. Very popular place for locals. Coffee is not so good, so better drink something other.

Pros: Tasty, Big portions, Cheap

Cons: Bad coffee

tasty food & great experience - Edit

I love this place!
At lunch time the place is full with locals. You have to wait for a seat till somebody finished his/her lunch. You have a lot of interaction with the locals.
First you have to ask for a paper so you can write 7 dishes from the day menu and hand this to the waiter. The food is very tasty and the portions are big.
Don't miss this place!

Pros: tasty vegetarian food, cheap, contact with locals

Vegan Friendly - Edit

I went here today for lunch&couldnt understand alot of the menu as i have little spanish so the owner welcomed me &guided me to a student who translated the menu to english. There was great choices mostly vegan. I liked how you could decide what you wanted as more places just give you what is on the menu with little choices. Serves was fast,cheap&very helpful

Pros: Cheap, Fast, Friendly

Cons: No English Menu

A great lunch restaurant - Edit

Maná serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. For lunch you choose 7 out of 10-15 different meals (starters, mains, salad and drink) for 4000 COP (June 2013).

The owner and his family are vegetarians since "for ever" and makes great vegeterian food inspired by the local flavors and food tradition!

Lunch is served until 2pm (14.00). Beware, not everything on the menu is available if you arrive late - and if you arrive around noon the place is crowded!

Pros: Price, The colombian flavors

Cons: It´s packed around noon

Wonderful, affordable vegetarian food - Edit

The set lunch is filling, tasty and very affordable. It is competitively priced with other inexpensive restaurants which is very nice, because many times in Colombia, the set lunch at vegetarian restaurants costs more than non vegetarian restaurants.

Pros: extremely affordable, tasty, fillilng
