Terrible Staff and Bland Food - Edit

My girlfriend is gluten free and asked if the falafel dish contained any wheat or gluten. The waiter checked and came back and said there was no gluten. The dish came out and had five dishes, one was wheat bread, one was pearl barley salad and one was BBQ sauce with wheat thickener. She said (kindly) that she couldn't eat that since it had gluten and if she could have more falafel instead. Long story short, the owner came over and was unnecessarily rude about the situation and made a scene. It was uncalled for, especially since we checked beforehand. The food was very bland and disappointing. Massive disappointment.

Pros: Vegan options, Central location

Cons: Expensive, Rude owner, Poor food

bring your own Seasoning - Edit

This restaurant has alot of dishes and you order most of them vegan. Really like 90% of the menu is vegan if you can communicate with the waitress. The food is good but not as jaw dropping as it sounds. The food is not very flavourful. Ask the waiter for salt and pepper to get some more out of your food. Desert can be ordered vegan. Get the truficas (this is one is very delicious though) for dessert or the french fondant.

Pros: most vegan options in Tulum, authentic food, good dessert

Cons: missed some seasoning

Lack flavours - Edit

Disappointing unfortunately. Nice service, chilled place and very attractive menu but the food and the drinks were average. Smoothies were watery, my boyfriend's burger was just a dry vegan patty in a dry bun (and a lettuce leaf), and my tacos lacked condiments too. A shame as it's 100% vegetarian and vegan but I found the vegan food from Enso restaurant so much better.

Don't bother - Edit

This food was extremely overpriced and very small servings. The vegan tacos al pastor didn't have any flavor. We all left hungry and regretted eating there. The tip is included in the bill as "gratuity" but then it lies by saying that the tip isn't included. A lot of the things on the menu weren't actually available and there is no vegan cheese to alter vegetarian dishes to make them vegan.

Pros: Nice atmosphere

Cons: Very expensive, Small servings, Food not great

Vegan Mexican - Edit

So this was my go to place for lunch & a few dinners. Portions are good. My only complaint the service can be really slow during breakfast/lunch. The owner came to our table & apologized for the wait and gave us a dessert in the house.

Pros: delicious , seating available

Cons: slow service at times

Pesimo - Edit

Pesimo servicio, he sido cliente frecuente cada vez que voy a Tulum, siempre fueron amables pero esta vez, los meseros ya son otros, groseros, chamacos que no respetan al cliente, me ataco un mesero, meserucho de 15 casi se ve, ademas de ofenderme le siguio y me ofendio mas y porque mi marido (quien no habla espanol)m no sabia que estabamos diciendo empeze a hablar en Ingles y el chamaquito asqueroso me exigio hablar en Espanol porque estamos en Mexico y que le valia que mi marido no hablara en Espanol, que cuando hablara con el, le hable en espanol y cuando hable con mi marido, le hablara en Ingles. Insolencia tras insolencia, aun cuando fui a preguntar por el encargado todos se rieron, todos los de la cocina, le llamaron a alguien y este llegando yo ya me iba y le comente lo que paso y porque estaba yo furiosa de tanta insolencia y falta de respeto le dije "guey" al mesero y me dijo que primero que nada el tiene nombre, en eso momento me di cuenta que no iba a logra nada, que tanto los meseros como el gerente son una bola de mal educados. insolentes, irrespetuosos a una mujer, mas grande que ellos y ataques verbales. Nunca me trataron o nos trataon de esa manera en ningun lugar. Quien sea que sea el dueno deberia de saber que al cliente no se le ataca una y otra vez y tampoco se le hace menos. Soy Mexicana y Americana y en America se habla el idioma que quieras y nadie me ha exigido hablar lo que ellos quieren, menos un pelafustan hippie barato de barrio que tienen como mesero y gerente, Soy vegana y apollaba este lugar, me perdieron como cliente de todos los dias. Groserisimos y mandados los meseros y encargados, y si, me puse mas grosera yo cuando se me falto al respeto. Verguenza de ser mexicana me dio, pero no todos somos iguales. Pelados asquerosos.

Too expensive for average food... - Edit

Food is good but overpriced.

By supporting their prices you will contribute to have less local food and local prices.

Good for US but not for Tulum

wonderful service, healthy food - Edit

I was welcomed by a nice waiter who was very thoughtful and made sure I had all I needed.
I decided to have a leon-juice (pineapple, orange, carrot and ginger), a multigrain burger and a chocolate brownie on top. Everything was tasty, even though personally I would have put more spices to the burger - but that's just a matter of taste :)
I paid about 200pesos for everything, which seems ok considering that it was all fresh and healthy food.
The atmosphere there is nice and cozy, even though it is located close to the major street.
I would recommend it :)

Pros: healthy, tasty, fresh, nice atmosphere , nice service

Cons: seemed to be mostly vegetarian, but still plenty , maybe a bit small portions

delicioso - Edit

Delicious food & juices! Many vegan options, most vegetarian dishes can be turned vegan. The ambiance is very relaxing as there are many plants. I recommend the falafel & seed burger. My husband loved the tacos-- make sure to ask for habanero sauce with it. Last but not least, the prices are great!

Yummy burgers and vegan desserts!! - Edit

Had a lovely burger here with yucca chips and finished with the vegan fondant! Yum!! Super friendly service and a little shop to buy vegan products, although they didn't have any milk to buy to take away when I asked. Super conveniently placed just across the road from where the colectivo drops you off from Akumal where we were staying.

Refreshing - Edit

I just happened to come by this nice restaurant. I had the Green Leaf Platter and a juice; Fresco. The dish was very good, I especially enjoyed the falafals. The juice was more like a smoothie, but I very much enjoyed getting some fruit.

Pros: Yes, there were both vegan and and veggie options.

Delicious chocolate pudding - Edit

This place has a lovely atmosphere, we went here 3 times while we were in tulum! They have a good amount of vegan choices on the menu. Some of the main meals were a bit bland, there's room for improvement there. However they do a delicious vegan chocolate fondant pudding, the best sweet thing we've had in Mexico so far.

Avoid the green juices! - Edit

Had vegan tacos which weren't bad (flavoursome, though they used fake meat/some sort of soy protein or another alternative, when I prefer fresh vegetables) but the green juice where pineapple was supposed to be the main ingredient, was terrible!! Completely flavourless with big chunks of mint floating about. Could barely take 2 sips.

Cons: terrible drinks

When you try to do everything good... - Edit

The major problem in La Hoja Verde is that they try to do too many different kinds of kitchen. They surely fail with italian ones and mexican isn't superb too. Most of the things tastes like frozen food but I don't believe it's possible cause the waiting time is quite long. Cocktails are quite good. Inside decoration and prices are like in any typical mexican bar.

Not many vegan options - Edit

I got a pizza here and the stir fry wok noodle -- the pizza was good flavor wise, but it wasn't anything special. The wok noodle a bad idea, very bland and stinky in a bad way. I was starring at the menu for a long time because I couldn't figure out what to get. They had vegan proteins for sale in their restaurant but do not use it in their menu. Nothing attractive here.

Updated from previous review on 2016-12-31

Pros: Good smoothie, Convenient area

Cons: Not enough vegan options, Uses too much cheese in menu

Try the mushroom empanadas with black bean and green tomatillo sauces! - Edit

Great vegan eats for half the cost or less of the vegan options at the beach resort restaurants. My husband and I spent 425 pesos for 1 fruit smoothie, 1 small bottle of still water, 1 large salad to share, 2 entrees, 1 dessert, and 1 espresso. Delicious! It was busy on a Monday night 6:00-8 pm. Tasty, inexpensive, creative and well crafted Mexican vegan food.

Pros: Local ingredients such as cactus!, Inexpensive , Friendly service

Good eats in town - Edit

I was drawn in by the vegan tacos sign but ended up getting a burger. I was really glad I did as it was a delicious burger made
Primarily of seeds with a curry flavouring. It came with a delicious salad and chips. I was a bit dismayed that I ate some of the dip which wasn't vegan but that was quickly sorted and many apologies were made. Service was tranquillo and I enjoyed my dinner. Good place to go for the vibe and close to the main square.

Pros: Location, Tasty, Pricing

Cons: Coffee was not great, Food not quick to come out
