Need to specify veganizing

There is need to specify that you are vegan.
I had a vegan mushroom sandwich and a vegan salad (I removed the cheese). It was very good :)
They have chips and guacamole as a vegan starter and a lot of vegetarian options.

Good quality food but only one vegan option

The only vegan option (meal) is the cheeseburger with the black bean patty made vegan. You need to tell them you’re vegan so that they’ll make it with a different type of bread, no cheese, no mayo. It was good! There is also guac and chips and salads that you can veganise. The piña colada is vegan too and sooooo good!!!

Pros: Amazing piña coladas, Good vegan burger

Cons: No actual vegan meal option (need to ask)

Cool place to go!

Large choice of vegetarian options, delicious fat & tender black bean burgers, fries were doing the job along that tender burger I had. My missus got a fat burrito too with tasty guacamole aside. Will come back for sure.
Good vibes/atmosphere, friendly servers. Cards accepted.

Pros: Big delicious portions, Friendly place , Cards accepted

Not as bad as the reviews say

The only real vegan meal (apart from salad and chips) on the menu is the guacamole. Since there are not many options in San Gil I still gave it a go, even locals recommended the restaurant when I asked for a veggie place. It is a heaven for vegetarians. The home made tortilla bread contains milk and eggs.
The black bean patty is vegan and they can make a vegan burger with another type of bread. The chips are average, the burger was nice. And so was the guacamole.

Tortillas not vegan

Went for a late dinner and tried to order mushroom tacos and a burrito. Mentioned we were vegan and server informed us that their house made tortillas contained milk and eggs. I got a salad instead, which was a good size but was very disappointed by lack of vegan options, even though this place has a whole vegetarian menu.

Pros: Good for vegetarians

Server not informed or helpful

Server didn’t know the difference between vegan and vegetarian. I didn’t find her helpful. Only option was a lentil burger served on sandwich bread which was over toasted and hard. The French fries seemed like just massed produced pre frozen and cooked. For a place that has a section on the menu “Gringo Fries” I expected actual real potato fries.

Cons: Jan 12, 2022 sign posted proof of vaccination , Not great service, not knowledgeable about vegan, Not many options, fries disappointing

American/Mexican for sure

The two vegan options were a burger or salad with most likely more variety in salads. We had chips and guac as and it was the best ive ever had. I order the mushroom burger. The burger has to be adjusted to vegan, however is pretty well adjusted. I will say the food did not have a healthy feel and felt heavy, but its what you expect from fried foods and bugers.

Pros: lots of vegetarian options/ clearly sectioned , clear knowledge of veganism, good chips and guac

Cons: only a couple vegan options burger / salad, veggie meat gets a no from me

Nice food, nice staff

I had twice the Mexican salad, good amount for an average person. Very tasty, a tiny bit spicy. The lime/mint frappé is to die for, as well as the iced coffee.

Staff is very nice, the place is modern, nice music.

Good for vegetarians

I found it a bit pricy for the fact that, for example the Mexican Salad comes with beans, but the amount of beans was so small that I had to order another dish afterwards. Also the options for vegans are rare. There is the Mexican Salad, the Burrito and probably a burger. All of them have to be veganized. Which means, when you order a burger there is not much more left than the bread, which probably isn't vegan anyways, and the bean patty. The second time I ate there, I had a burrito. But besides the fact, that it looks huge, it is mainly iceberg salad. So I wasn't full neither. But I decided to have something back in the hostel, because I was tired of ordering so much. I told them that I was not full, by the way, but they only asked me if I want to order something else. Staff is actually friendly and knows which ingredients have to be left away for veganizing it. Atmosphere is nice, with good music.

Great for vegetarians, not vegans :(

Beautiful setting and good atmosphere. Menu is in english, but the two waiters who served us didn't speak English. The menu had a vegetarin section, plus all burgers can be vege. However, no indication of vegan options so after much hand gestures it turns out only a couple of salads are vegan (once cheese removed).

Pros: Clear vegetarian options which look super tasty.

Cons: no vegan options. even the burrito wrap contains m
