BEST. RESTAURANT. EVER! - Edit

Hands down my favorite restaurant I've ever eaten at (from before I was vegan to now). My partner is omni and he agrees. Our server was wonderful and the food was phenomenal, well priced with big serving sizes. I wish this place existed back home. Go here!

Pros: Everything!

Cons: It's not in my hometown.

Very good quality food - Edit

I had a lasagna and it was outstanding. My friend had the burger and chips, which I didn't think was nearly as good as the lasagne. Quantity wise they did better than I.

I also had a smoothie...the first one I had didn't taste quite right - seemed like there was an under-ripe banana in the mix so I complained. They took it back and exchanged it for a different one no hassles which was good. Turned out there was an under-ripe banana in the mix -odd given how abundant ripe and tasty bananas are in Peru. What replaced it was quite good. By local standards this place is expensive but worth it for a one off I'd say.

Pros: Rectified poorly tasting food, Very tasty food

Cons: Quite expensive by local standards

MUST TRY - Edit

If you are in Cusco you must go to this restaurant. The food is excellent, the menu has plenty of options and the waiters are really cool. It is a great option if you want to taste the peruvian cuisine.
The VeganKing approves this place! It made me really happy :)

ONLY FOR BUSINESS - Edit

Peruvian food is based on a variety of condiments to change the flavors of the products in their nature, and the concept of Peruvian as such does not exist, since it is the combination of international cuisines. The Green Point food is this classic Peruvian food and it is sold as vegan. Many times salty and greasy. There are many tourists who prefer that type of food and confuse that vegan food is good because it is like the classic Peruvian food but without meat. Most dishes in this restaurant are full of oil which does not make it healthy in general terms. There are many kitchens that without the use of oil and salt, they feel lost and limited to be able to serve food. The coffee that was served to us, they sold it as organic and we know that Peru is far from being considered a country selling organic products and even more in the area of ​​Cusco where its main river that crosses the Sacred Valley is extremely contaminated. In the soup that we were served, there were small stones and to save the bad moment they offered us not to charge that plate. They have the only intention of marketing and selling themselves as the only ones that exist in Cusco and in the capital of the Incas there are more options and healthier in many aspects than this place. Having been twice in this restaurant is more than enough.

Pros: Is Peruvian food as they claim

Cons: Salty, Greasy, Business only

Cheap breakfast and set menu lunch option - Edit

Although the menu is a little expensive there are some cheap options if you go for breakfast or lunch. My boyfriend is not a vegan was blown away by the taste of our breakfast sandwich. For 16 sol we got a sandwich, fresh squeezed orange juice and coffee. As we were leaving we saw the set menu for lunch for only 15 sol. They had the dishes on display and my non vegan boyfriend can't wait to come back for lunch!

Must Try in Cusco - Edit

For many of my Peru trips, this was the only restaurant I would eat at. There is such a variety of things on the menu, their set menu is always tasty and generous, and I feel you always get a "bang for your buck" with the portions of everything. Their cheese board is a must-try! It's beautiful and huge... in the United States it would probably be a $30 appetizer and not nearly as tasty as theirs.

The restaurant is very popular, especially around lunch! A definite place to visit when in Cusco, even if you are a non-vegan :)

Pros: vegan, tasty, well-priced

Cons: busy, space is very small

My favourite restaurant in the world - Edit

I lived in Cusco for 6 months and i ended up coming here at least 2-3 times a week. The food is incredible, the staff are the sweetest you will meet. If you have not been here you have not lived.

Pros: Too many to list

Cons: you have not been here

Really decent all vegan goodness! - Edit

The place is all vegan and has a large menu so you have so many options when you visit! Three of us ordered a starter, main and drink each. The samosas and dumplings which we got as starters were an amazing plant based adaption! I got the veggie lasagna as my main and it was delicious! My friends ordered the sushi which was good but not great and a traditional Peruvian dish (tacu tacu) which just wasn’t for us. Overall awesome dining experience!

Pros: Entire menu is vegan!

I felt spoiled here - Edit

I was surprised to stroll along the streets of the San Blas neighborhood to see a place that was explicitly vegan with a shopfront as well as a restaurant. The shop sells kombucha, vegan cheeses, mushrooms, breads, pastries (some gluten free), and various crafts.

The restaurant was amazing. We were lucky to get in when there was not a line. Maybe 20 minutes after we arrived, there was a line that was several parties long.

We ordered tea, an appetizer, and an entree to share (there are entrees for two people on the menu). Before even getting any of the food we ordered, they brought a special appetizer out to us that is something they are trying out to add to the menu. It was bread and a special sauce to dip. When I told them I was gluten free, they brought out a second tray just for me with gluten free bread and my own cup of the dip. I was very appreciative of that because it takes a restaurant that really cares to actually understand that I could not use the same dip as glutinous bread with my allergy.

The food itself was incredible. We had the mushroom ceviche and the tacos for two. The ceviche itself was some of the best I have had and came with marinated sweet potatoes that were the bees knees. The tacos were on homemade tortillas that my partner and I still talk about as being the best tortillas we have ever had. We were so satisfied at the end of the meal and we were taken care of so well. It was a great experience.

Pros: All vegan, celiac approved, tastes so so so good

Cons: none

The lunch special is really special! - Edit

We had the almuerzo set, which is fantastic value for money. You get a soup starter, side salad (you fill your own salad plate from a buffet), main dish (of three choices) dessert, and a drink. We were both very full and very happy.

Updated from previous review on 2017-09-18

Pros: Good value, Great vibe

Amazing restaurant, favourite in Cusco - Edit

This place was amazing!! Went three times over the course of our trip. Their lunch special is so delicious and also a fantastic price. The service is amazing and it has great atmosphere. Also loved their desserts, the chocolate chip cookies and the energy bar. Wish we could have tried more on the menu. If in Cusco, you must go!

Pretty Dope - Edit

Huge portions, very tasty, high-quality entrees, excellent, filling desserts.
I was starved when I went here and ordered wayyy too much, not realizing that the appetizers and enters are gigantic. The service was painfully slow but even if I wanted to deduct a star for that, I'd have to add another star back on for their commitment to the environment--if you want to take food home, you have to carry it home on a real plate in a paper bag and buy the plate from them (4-5 soles) and they'll give you your money back if you return it after the fact. That was pretty gangsta and I gotta respect that 💯.

I also had ceviche for the first time in my life...I hated it but if someone likes ceviche, I have a feeling they'd love this vegan version because it's everything I'd expect from a fishy dish (slimy, tart, and swimming in lemon juice).

Pros: Big Portions, Fair pricing, They don't use plastic bags/containers

Cons: Slow, mediocre service

Amazing - Edit

We go all the time and we love it, and we've taken all our family and they love it too. I recommend the sharing platters like the cheese or the tacos. The service is also fantastic and the atmosphere is really chilled and fun. Can't recommend highly enough!

Pros: delicious comfortable loads of options good for sh

Was disappointed but I would give it another chance - Edit

I ate there once, ordered the lunch menu. Maybe I was unlucky, I found the meal boring and tasteless. The place was a bit too busy and crowded. But I've hear good comments and I would try coming back again and giving it another chance.

Pros: Nice self-service salad, Lunch menu is fairly priced

Cons: Boring and tasteless lunch menu when I was there, Too crowded

Amaaaazing - Edit

Was in Cusco a few days and ate here 5 times. So delicious. 15 soles for salad bar, entree, main, dessert and a juice is a good deal too. All the food we had was really good. Suggest getting there 30 mins before peak meal times as it was normally busy and there was sometimes a wait for a table.

Nice food but too busy - Edit

When I arrived they only had tables left in a covered outside area. This would be fine in daytime but at night it was really very cold, despite the heater. It was a very busy place, so people had to share tables with strangers, not ideal.

I had a vegetable stir fry that was really quite tasty. Absolutely nothing wrong with the food, and the service was friendly. But it was a lot more expensive than some other good vegan options in Cusco, and it was not very relaxing.


Pros: good food, friendly and efficient service

Cons: very crowded, expensive

Not to Be Missed! - Edit

If you're a vegan and in Cusco, you had better get yourself to Green Point. If you're not vegan? I recommend the same.

I must have tried nearly the entire menu during my 2 weeks in Cusco and everything was superb. I also met the owner and he is an incredible chef with great vision. He also offers vegan cooking classes!

Favorite dishes:
Mushroom ceviche - AMAZING
Samoas
Vegan Yogurt

Pros: Delicous, s/15 Lunch Menu is great deal, Good vision

Cons: Very busy at lunch time

pas cher et délicieux! - Edit

On a pris un menu à 15 soles - on avait le droit au 4 plats (!), tout était délicieux! Salade, soupe, vegan moussaka (and ceviche) ainsi que le dessert.. on a pris également les deux mega cookies take away pour plus tard et ils étaient délicieux! Dommage qu'on a découvert ce Resto au notre dernier jour au Cusco..

Pros: menu copieux et pas cher , la nourriture délicieuse et bien présenté

The best food, and vegan, too - Edit

We picked our Cusco Airbnb because it was located a 1/2 block from the San Blas Green Point, and we're very happy we did. Green Point demonstrates that the best food, taste, nutrition, and presentation, is vegan food.

Upon our arrival in Cusco, we enjoyed a breakfast consisting of green juice, chai, and chocolate waffles. We dined at a communal table on the small upstairs outdoor patio, and enjoyed the company of a fellow traveler.

We returned the next night for dinner, and were seated at a communal, indoor table upstairs, in a small room with a nice ambiance. [Note, the tables downstairs are smaller, so generally not expected to be shared.] The raw lasagna was fabulous, as was the pumpkin soup. The cooked lasagna, garlic bread, and Peruvian stir fry were also very good. We took home tiramisu and chocolate mousse, of which I thought the taste of the tiramisu was just okay, but really enjoyed the rich, dark chocolate of the mousse.

The restaurant also has a convenience shop located next door, where we picked up a loaf of dried tomato bread and carton of almond milk.

The service was excellent and friendly. Green Point is very popular, and at peak times you may have to wait for a table, or share one of their larger tables with other guests. Twice we shared our table, for part of our meal, with friendly tourists, and enjoyed doing so on both occasions.

The prices were very reasonable by U.S. standards, and well worth the money for excellent vegan food.

Pros: Food selection, Cusco vibe, Food quality

Cons: Crowded at peak times

Okay food - Edit

We ate their fixed menu which was mediocre. The place was really crowded and hence we were asked to share a table with 3 strangers - we agreed since we didn't know where else to go find veg food. The place was sprawling with backpackers. It seemed kind of dirty. The food was okay - nothing to write home about. It was cheap though 15 soles for a soup, salad bar, main course, drink and dessert. They only had 1 server so he was trying his best to keep up with all the crowd. The cashiers and manager had no smile on their face.
