Great veggie burger - Edit

Stumbled across this restaurant while visiting Barranco neighbourhood and was pleasantly surprised. One of the best veggie burgers I've ever had. Would definitely return.

Delicious - Edit

Original vegan menu options inspired on the Peruvian cuisine. I took the 'chorizo' and it was the best treat I could get after the long flight to Lima. Also my non-vegan friends really enjoyed their dish. I ordered the vegan chocolate cake 'para llevar' as a guilty pleasure for breakfast the next day: heavy but tasteful.

I've eaten here nearly every day - Edit

Being an oil, salt, sugar, and flour FREE vegan means there are few dining options available for me. Although I'm fairly certain there is a little oil and salt in the dishes here, I suppose I should "live in the wild side" sometimes... and the food here is beyond tasty. from Portobello Saltado to oyster mushroom tacu tacu, I'm impressed at how they pull off classic Peruvian meat-based dishes in a way that's every bit as pleasing to a SupraVegan (former MegaCarnivore).

This place gets my highest marks and is a pleasure to eat there every time.

Pros: everything is ridiculously tasty

Cons: a bit pricy and I'm fairly certain a lot of oi

Great almost vegan restaurant in a hip neighborhood of Lima - Edit

I’ve visited this place for lunch in June 2016

Most of the menu turned out to be vegan; however several (vegan) things, including crepes that I really wanted to try, were not available.
Anyway, I loved the plates I chose. They were fajitas and burger on the plate. The only remark is the amount of food; I did expect a little bit more, considering the price and the fact that this restaurant is located in Peru.
As dessert I had raw crepes (since they didn’t have the normal ones), which I enjoyed very much.
This one is place on my comeback list when in Lima again.
Hopefully it’ll become fully vegan by then.

Pros: very tasty, location

Cons: not 100% vegan

Pros: Healthy, Really tasty, Nice decoration

Cons: Price

Great Vegan Food - Edit

This place is great. I think they are mostly vegan, except the option to offer cheese on their pizza. The food is good, the service timely. They offer a variety of foods. We ordered the black bean burger (no bun FYI) and the picoso wrap. It was a little more expensive than other places we visited but I think Lima is generally more expensive. Would definitely come back.

Pros: Good, fresh food, Fast, Fun, casual atmosphere

perfecto! - Edit

I'm impressed with the service. very friendly. totally vegan. I got the vibe that the cooks take this not only as food,but also as an art. my hungry boyfriend had a vegan pizza - I thought it could have been bigger, but he was satisfied. I went with the burger. they have many options for the burgers, and I went with black bean. I didn't know but I also got a side of coconut cooked fries and a beautiful large salad. they had "raw" cook books that were really fun to look at.

Tasy selection of Vegan options, Great wine - Edit

This hybrid restaurant seems to be more western-themed in the style of their dishes, which was very appreciated as many of the vege restaurants we have sampled in Peru were either raw-focused or had bland flavors.

We started with the garlic mushroom "toast" which was fantastic.

For entrees we tried the vegan lasagna (no noodles - very earthy and filling) and the Chickpea Hamburger (strangely, most vegan burgers in Peru seem to be served without a bun which was also the case here). The flavor was good and the fries were delicious.

All dessert options were raw.

The wines we sampled were organic and delicious - the best we've had since being in Peru.

Overall worth a stop here when in Lima, especially if looking for good flavors. Oh and unlike many of the other restaurants we have tried the staff was helpful/friendly.

Good food, nice atmosphere in Barranco - Edit

I found this to be a nice place with pleasant atmosphere. The daily menu is 16 soles as of May 2015, more than places in Miraflores, but the food is slightly better and it's close to Barranco's main square. The meal includes juice, appetizer, the main plate, and dessert. The day I went, the appetizer was a veggie shishkebab, and the main plate was quinoa with mixed veggies and a scrambled egg on top. The service is attentive and they have free WiFi. Strangely, nearly every customer here was foreign, where in Miraflores they tend to be Peruvians. Also, there's another veggie place only two blocks away called La Calandria at Calle 28 de Julio #206.

Pros: Food good, Near Barranco's main square, Pleasant surroundings

Cons: Price, compared to Lima restaurants
