Hermoso lugar

Tienen una extensa carta con gran variedad de platos. Las porciones son generosas y muy ricas.
El lugar es muy acogedor, particularmente el espacio “chill” donde la luz es más tenue y tienen mesas bajas para comer sentados en el piso.
El personal es muy atento y amable!

Pros: Variedad de opciones, Atención del personal, Espacio chill

Comida deli y lugar precioso

La onda del restaurante lo es todo. Tienen muchas opciones veganas. Recomiendo mucho lo que probé: gnocchi rellenos de queso con salsa rosa y de postre el lemon pie

Amazing food and restaurant

One of the best places to eat vegan food in Montevideo. Even though the restaurant is vegetarian, they have improved over the years and offer a wide variety of vegan options in the menu. Prices are a little bit expensive but totally worth it, the food is amazing.

Amazing experience!

I love this place, it is one of the best and also first vegetarian restaurants and since then has improved and incorporated many vegan options. They've a fusion cuisine with many items to choose from, including plant-based adaptations of local-dishes. Smoothies are super nice and nutritive. Vegan items and ingredients are clearly labeled. The chill area is super nice as an alternative experience where you can take your shoes off and sit on cushions on top of a beautiful carpet.

I love their pizza and, their vegan ravioli (the fried ones are great) and vegan gnocci. The chivito is also very nice.

Fantastic food!

I didn't want to leave Montevideo without trying a chivito... thanks to Namaste I could have a vegan one. The restaurant is very beautiful and the lady who waited on me was really nice.
The chivito was incredible (I'm sad I have to go back home and won't have the time to have another one) and the fries that came with it were tasty as well.

Pros: Nice ambience , Great food, Vegan uruguayan dishes available

Average and expensive food

The service was good, but the food was average and by far the most expensive meal we've had in South America... It was the first meal we ate in Uruguay, so we thought the prices might be standard, but we've since found much cheaper (and better) vegetarian and vegan food in Montevideo.

Pros: Friendly staff , Vegetarian and vegan options

Cons: Really expensive , Average food

I ordered a few times the Vegan chivito, but around 4 or 5 times they send me vegetarian chivito, and once i had to wait until the other day to have a solution. Never again

Pros: Delicious food

Cons: Not paying attention, Many mistakes

The prices are affordable and they even have 2x1 offers.

high price, small servings

The food in this place is rather expensive for what you get. It could have had more taste too.
The staff was friendly and the ambiente is nice.

Lovely Decor, Decent Food

The decor of this restaurant is reminiscent of that which you find often in Asia. Very relaxing and calm.

My meal started with fresh bread with a delicious dip. I ordered some ravioli stuffed with pumpkin. I liked the flavors, but felt the dish was way too heavy and dense for my taste. I think I ordered wrong, as the food other had looked great

This is probably one of the best restaurants where I have been in my l'asta trips abroad. The owners and the people working there are nice, attentive and smiling, the atmosphere is relaxing, and the food is great - simple, fresh, well cooked.
Basically vegetarian with good Vegan options such as the sorrentinos ( just adored them).
Princes are moderate.
Absolutely recommended.

Pros: Fresh, well cooked food, Nice people, Laid back atmosphere

The owners I assume? Or people who worked there were so friendly, welcoming, and kind! They offered us chivitos and made sure mine was vegan. The food was great, and the atmosphere was so serene and just a beautiful space. What a great meal. The vegan chivito was delicious especially with the sauces!

Pros: atmosphere, food quality and taste, the people who work there/owners

Cons: lack of option of salad on the side?

One of my vegan favorites in Montevideo

A cozy restaurant with a nice atmosphere and friendly staff. You can choose to sit at a table or on cushions on the floor, which makes the atmosphere much nicer! If you choose the second option, you have to take out your shoes!
This is a nice restaurant to go for a romantic dinner and the food is very tasty.
From time to time, they also organize shows (indian, brazilian music, etc) that you can enjoy while you eat.

Pros: cozy atmosphere, tasty food

The prices might not be the cheapest, but I think it's worth it because the food is really good, with really big servings, the service is impeccable, the place looks so beautiful and the atmosphere is very relaxing.

You get what you pay for :)

There's many vegan choices!

Only thing they could improve would be the desserts: they could have more vegan options than only fruit salad :/ But I didn't even get space in my stomach for that!

Pros: Relaxing atmosphere, Great food!, Big portions!

Cons: Could have more vegan desserts.

Very good food with a nice and attentive service

I was there on 15 Feb 2013, a Friday evening, with my girlfriend. At this day they only opened at 8:30pm. It was well attended, but not crowded, giving a nice atmosphere in the room with the chairs. If you feel like sitting on the floor in their other room, you could have a rather private dinner, no customer was using it at that time.
They don't label the vegan options in the menu, so you have to ask, and speak Spanish. But then they are very flexible to make a dish vegan, e.g. instead of mozzarella they'll use tofu for the chivito.
The chivito on a plate (260 pesos) was very good and I was happy to enjoy a traditional Uruguayan meal in a vegan version.
The doblado (215 pesos), my girlfriend had, was also very nice.
We also chose 10 small spring rolls (160 pesos) and a salad (200 pesos) as a starter.
Rather high prices, but also good quality and a very nice and attentive service, so absolutely recommended for a nice dinner in the evening.

Pros: Very good local specialties, Easy to find location, Very nice and attentive service

Cons: No English menu, Vegan food not labelled, Prices not for a daily visit
