Delicious! Best vegan option in Playa - Edit

We had a delicious and extremely reasonably priced meal here. Everything is vegan. Delicious fresh coconut water and Jamaica juice for drinks. Incredible guacamole! Tasty in-house tortilla chips. Ordered one of the specials made with squash and sweet potato and some fabulous tacos. Very vegetable-forward. I wish we’d had time to return so I could try more things on the menu. Service was lovely - so friendly and warm and attentive! A reminder that in México it’s generally considered rude for a waiter to bring you a check without asking for it so don’t assume it will come to you before you request it. Like many great restaurants, the food is made with love and everything is given care. This is not a place to come if you’re in a rush - savor the food, relax in the garden courtyard seating, and enjoy!

very bad - Edit

The food was very bad and the service was TOO slow. The couple next to is got their meal after us. The worst is that they arrives first. Note I picked 1 star not 2. But the app did not let me choose only one.

Great breakfasts, nice place - Edit

La Senda had a great set of options, particularly for a light meal: breakfast or lunch. We had the sweet crepe, the chilaquiles, the molletes, the cacao smoothie and the cacao bowl. I definitely recommend the cacao bowl and the smoothie, both had rich and deep flavors and were both light and filling, just like the best vegan food. Staff were nice and spoke English and there was a lot of seating.

Pros: Food, Staff, Location

not the greatest, serving size are small - Edit

The size servings are too small for what you pay. Taste is ok but not the greatest. We had chilaquiles and a cai bowl which looks like ice cream with not much fruit. I needed to ordered extra beans for the chilaquiles which cost me almost as much as the chilaquiles themselves. Prices are high for what they served and the quality of the food.

A bit disappointing - Edit

Had breakfast there and found the portions pretty small, especially the vegadillas which were just 4 small tortillas folded with their yuca cheese, and a teeny tiny cup of salsa. Chilaquiles were good, but everything was pretty bland. Maybe just made a bad choice or came on the wrong day, since most other reviews made it sound amazing. Service was great, friendly and attentive. Won’t try it again unfortunately, left still hungry and went for burgers at Marvin’s....

Pros: House made with quality ingredients, Nice service

Cons: Bland, Small portions

Great place and great people - Edit

We visited la senda various times and food and treatment was always great! Try the tacos and the sweet crepe as well as the drinks! The smoothies and juices are great and exactly what you need with the weather.

On our last day we didn't know what to do with the mex pesos as changing back to eur was not really worth it. We bought pet food and brought it to la senda asking if they knew somebody and could give it to an animal shelter etc and the guy working there keept it and said he would make sure that it was given to people helping animals :)

A great place, with great people and great food which i will miss back home!

Pros: price, quality, nice people

Cons: small place therefore sometimes no table free.

Amazing food & drinks, friendly service, central location - Edit

Visited here twice, once just for a milkshake (divine) and once for lunch. Had the Aztec torta with mole sauce and loved it, wish we were staying in Playa longer just to try the whole menu, so much choice I felt spoilt!!!

Pros: Everything!

Not enough stars here.. - Edit

Best vegan place I have been to. Fantastic foods (tried almost all the menu), amazing friendly staff, cute place. Most of the menu is gluten free (or possible to get them gluten free if you ask). Several awesome raw options. Well worth the money, good portions.

Great food, service, and ambiance - Edit

Everything about this place was great. We were told they are one of the longest running vegan places in Playa Del Carmen. We had the guacamole (chips especially are amazing), lentil burger (good but a bit plain), chilaquiles (good), pancake (super sweet), and amazing green juices. Outdoor seating and great decor.

Pros: fresh food, great staff, old school establishment

Cons: some dishes weren't super flavorful

Vegan Paradise! Outstanding food and customer service - Edit

La Senda is one of our all time favorite vegan restaurants! We have been there for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! Their crepe "salado" is our favorite. It is like a vegan omelette made with chickpea flour and filled with veggies. I love their aqua frescas and other homemade drinks. We left Xcaret late one night and got there close to their closing time, they were nice enough to make us dinner and even made pancakes for the kids who were craving them from a previous visit.

Pros: Foods Tasted Amazing, Late Hours, Great customer service

Cons: Small

So yummy - Edit

Went to this place last year.
The restaurant is very cute and the people are very nice.
I don't remember exactly what I've taken for the main plate, it was a portobello mushroom that replace the corn tortilla and it was delicious. For the desert I take a chocolate cake made of dattes and it was also very delicious.
If one day I return to Playa I will step by again for sure !

Pros: All vegan , Not pricy, Delicious

not the best - Edit

i'm having difficulties with this place and giving it a rating.
the first time i visited, they got everything wrong: my drink was served hot instead of cold as requested, the food was a completely wrong dish. nothing too bad, as both was replaced BUT waiting an extra 15 minutes at 9pm when you're already really hungry isn't the best experience.
what made it worse was that the food ordered was everything but delicious. all parts were covered in maca sauce - and i came to realise that i really dislike this sauce. there was no way in eating around it somehow and enjoying it. the waiter avoided our table. probably because he saw the look on my face.

from this experience, i'd usually avoid visiting again. but, i did. and i'm glad.
the service was lovely and my nori rolls were fantastic in taste & presentation! they were very filling too! unfortunately, this time, my friend wasn't too happy. she had cheesecake, that was still frozen, which is kinda weird even though i understand the need of cooling things in a hot place like playa, a fridge should usually do? unsure if that cake was actually fresh or prepared way in advance...

so, altogether i'd say you kinda have to be lucky with both service and your choice of food. there's better options in playa though!!

Annual visit - Edit

Second time vacationing in Playa del Carmen, second time visiting La Senda. While In Search of Yum in Playa, La Senda makes the must do list every time. Two of us shared the spaghetti made with zuchinni and carrot noodles. The serving was so generous we boxed the rest for a take-away. Definitely yummy,

Pros: Yummy food, Happy staff, Creative hand wash sink

Vegan in so many ways - Edit

Vegan not only because of the food they serve but also because of their knowledge about what they serve and what's important to you when you're on a specific diet. They are also very kind, polite, helpful and open to opinions. That's cool and we didn't even come to their menu! The drinks are fantastic, absolutely hi class. Breakfast is delicious (pancakes and granola!) and after 12 pm you can try some other things like pastas or burgers. To be honest, I wasn't really impressed with the latter one but it was OK. Place is still highly recommended.
