A bit average - Edit

Food was not well-labelled as to its vegan status. Quite expensive if you have a decent appetite... Food itself was reasonable and staff were friendly. You do get a nice view overlooking what's going on in Calle Florida.

no longer tenedor libre - Edit

Went back to Granix this year. The buffet is no longer "eat all you want" but is weighed at the cash register by the kilo. It does stop one from eating too much! They no longer have their wonderful soups but the food is still great and despite some other reviews, the salad bar is one of the best in Buenos Aires: very fresh, very extensive and very vegan. The cooked food is vegetarian, some vegan. The food is great and a wonderful place for lunch in downtown Buenos Aires, without having to resort to pasta or cheese in other restaurants.

Pros: great food and variety, good value, clean and friendly

Cons: long lines at lunch time (sometimes)

Nice atmosphere - Edit

Has lots of engredients for good and healthy salads you can mix yourself, two soups, pastas, some tortillas with eggs, postres. Juices are not natural. the choise is poorer than in most of chinese take-away places, but every dish is available until the end of the working hours. We enjoyed it.

Good buffet - Edit

Actually, buffet price costs 42 pesos and it is reasonable, since it includes beverages and desserts too. Great variety of hot dishes, like tartes and pasta, as well as salads and vegetables.

Pros: healthy cuisine, good price, friendly staff

Wholesome and large buffet - Edit

We had lunch here last monday and just made it before they closed around 3 PM. You pay 29 pesos a person when you enter and from there on it's all you can eat. Started out with a very light 'Sopa Borsch' followed by some salad from the salad bar and some of the main dishes 'Pastel de Puerros','Apio con Hinojo' and 'Quiche de Repollo'. Although it was very colourful and filling we kinda missed a bit of flavour since it all tasted not spicy and besides salt the Argentinians don't seem to add anything else to their food. But all in all a great place to go in an overall meat orientated country.

Pros: plenty of variety, very cheap, easy to find

Cons: no spicy flavour, not many drinks, only lunch

Simply Georgeous - Edit

Granix Restaurante is owned by Adventists. They are very conscious to select raw materials and the result is a heatly, fresh and delicious food. Highly reccomended!

Pros: Variety, fresh food, nice atmosphere

Cons: only for lunch

stop here if hungry - Edit

Having a veg buffet in a busy crazy city was nice! It was upstairs in a large seating area. The first time we went there were several vegan options, the second time didn't seem to be as many. I was still fed well though. My husband, who speaks Spanish, says that the jello looking dessert was of the cow hoof variety. I think he asked. All in all it was a nice place to sit down and eat.

Pros: big seating area and quite, plenty to fill up on, clean

Cons: use caution with the jello, lots of dairy items

Good vege buffet. - Edit

This is a good option in the touristy microcenter.

Food is buffet style, but I found it a bit bland (except for the tofu schnitzel). Not bad overall.

30 pesos is good price, but Spring seems less expensive and better quality.

Pay as you enter. Open for lunch only.

Pros: location

Cons: hours

A Sure Favourite - Edit

I have been three times to Argentina in the last 5 years and have eaten at Granix each time. It has always had a very good variety of both self-service savoury dishes and desserts and found that because there were so many options I usually left not needing any later meal for those days. The last visit was in early last month (June) and would always recommend it. It is reliably 100% vegetarian.

Pros: Consistent, Good Food, Central

Cons: Lunch Time Only

A pleasure - Edit

Granix, down town BA, is a thrill. Abundant buffets, good food, great choice and very decent prices: End November 2007 25 pesos for lunch that is € 5.50. Try to get that in Europe and tell me the spot!

Jeffrey 02 Nov 2009 - hi Dr. Nielsweid, I found your review very helpful. When I was in B.A. it was so expensive and hard to find a good place to eat. This sounds like quite a deal to me.

Good Selection...Decent Taste - Edit

There's a big selection of food here--salads, soups, main dishes, deserts. A lot of stuff is ovo-lacto, though vegans can find some good finds too. A few foods that are not typically encountered by "Norteamericanos" were in the buffet, including cooked breadfruit. There were abundant pasta and rice dishes. The food wasn't particularly spicy...that's probably the biggest disadvantage...and dinner hours might be nice too.

Pros: big selection, some unusual dishes, good location

Cons: not spicy enough, only lunch hours

Average food in a convenient location - Edit

There are 2 sections to the restaurant; all you can eat for 20 pesos, and a takeout area where food is sold by weight. If you take out, there are no tables anywhere nearby to sit and eat. The buffet includes salad, entrees, dessets and drinks. I found the food to be lacking in flavor and the price is high for Buenos Aires, but a good value if you eat a lot. I don't think they add any salt during cooking. The dining room is large, nice and air conditioned. Located in a shopping mall right on the Florida pedestrian street. When inside the mall, look for an alcove that says "Edificio Mitre" and walk up a flight of stairs to the restaurant. Open only Monday through Friday for lunch from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Pros: Location, Variety

Cons: Lack of flavor, Relatively high price
