Best Vegan Option in San Pedro

We practically became VIP customers at this restaurant. We went for lunch and dinner practically every day. Good food, not too expensive and quite honest. It practically "saved" us during our time in Atacama. The service was good, although not excellent, but very pragmatic. The location is good, in downtown.

Praticamente nos tornamos clientes VIPs neste restaurante. Íamos no almoço e no jantar, praticamente todos os dias. Comida boa, não muito cara e bastante honesta. Praticamente nos “salvou” neste período em que tivemos no Atacama. Atendimento foi bom, embora não excelente, mas bem pragmático. A localização é boa, bem no centro da cidade.

Very good

The seitan estrella was tasty and filling but not particularly healthy. Had a chocolate something for dessert and it was pretty good as well.

Good options

One of our best meals while in San Pedro. Most of the menu is vegan, besides 1 or 2 things. Their fries were delicious and their abundance burger hit the spot. We were able to pay by card with no problems. The server was really nice and attentive.

From what we could gather almost everything was vegan or could be vegan.
We had a seitan dish and a soy meatball dish and both were delicious!
Lady serving was very friendly and there was a nice atmosphere.

Pros: Many vegan options, Food is tasty, Fair price

Melhor opção vegana em San Pedro do Atacama

O Estrella Negra me pareceu a melhor opção para veganos em San Pedro do Atacama. A comida é muito boa e farta e, apesar de alguns pratos vegetarianos, as opções veganas são bem variadas.
Fui 3 vezes e experimentei o Seitan Estrella (foto), um spaghetti à bolonhesa vegano e o crepe de nutella vegano.
Uma dica é que o Estrella Negra também oferece muitas opções de doces no balcão para levar para os passeios no deserto, como bombons, alfajores e pedaços de torta.

Pros: Comida saborosa, Ambiente agradável

Cons: algumas opções vegetarianas

Foreigners, beware!

When we arrived we asked to the waitress if it was possible to pay by card (tarjeta), she said yes. We ordered the food then: one menu of the day and one sea ty ceviche (veggie). It took a while to get ready and the ceviche was too acidic. But the problem wasn’t that… when we were about to pay the SAME waitress said that pre paid card (like Wise card) didn’t work in the restaurant!!!!
I was already pissed off to use another card (I had to use my credit card from my country that charges for international purchases) and the credit machine in the restaurant charges 1.031 pesos chilenos more just because it was a international transaction!!!!!
Don’t go there!! It’s not prepare to receive foreigners!!!!

The best in San Pedro

Cute restaurant in the main street of San Pedro, very easy to find. Unfortunately, when I went there they didn't have a lunch menu, so I had to order from the regular menu which is not that cheap. But they have many options and most of them are vegan, so it was even difficult to choose! I had the Pastel de Choclo, a traditional dish with a base of corn. It was really good! The dish itself was tasty and creamy, and the salad that came as a side was fresh and well-seasoned. I definitely recommend this place as it is by far the best option for vegans in San Pedro.

Lovely place!

The menu of the day costs CPL10,000, is a 3-set menu, and has 2 options for starters and mains. Tasty vegan options available. Very friendly service and incredible vegan baked goods - try the vegan snickers if you can, it’s quite the treat!

Almost fully vegan!

This place has tons of vegan options from empanadas, tacos, pastas, falafel, and soups! 95% of their menu is vegan, they also offer regular cheese which makes this place not fully vegan. Food is delicious! They always have a menu of the day which includes a soup or salad with choice of main course and a dessert…all for $8. We stayed in this town for 6 days and came here almost every day. Try their empanadas, they’re large and filling!

Pros: Many vegan options , Friendly staff, Inexpensive

Tasty falafel

We came here on our first day in San Pedro for the lunch menu. It costs 8000 Pesos and consists of a starter, a main dish and a dessert. In our case the menu was a mushroom ceviche, a main dish consisting of rice with falafel and a vegan mayonnaise as well as a fruit tart with a wine sauce for dessert. It all tasted quite good except for the main dish being quite bland as there was only a bit of sauce and just three small falafel next to the rice. Also, the portions were not that big for the expensive price. Also keep in mind that it takes some time until you get your food, we waited for longer than an hour before our main dish arrived.

Pros: Vegan option on lunch menu, Vegan sweets for dessert

Cons: Not completely vegan, Quite expensive, Small portions and long waiting time

Friendly and local

I visited multiple times and had the daily menu. Sometimes they offered veganised local dishes, and I loved that they actually used a protein replacement (e.g. Pastel de Choclo with seitan). Staff was very friendly and spoke decent English!
