Amazing food

Had the chile relleno and the enchiladas, both amazing.
Cozy interior with outdoor seating available.

We had lunch when they opened, my partner had torta Cubana sandwich, and I had 2 small plates of moreliana and tamale. Very tasty and good service

Chef's kiss

What can I say that hasn't already said. Authentic homemade street size corn tortillas for fabulous tacos. KFC, Rajas and Barbacoa were off the hook!

Pros: Flavorful , Mouth-watering , Tacos

So good!

Service was great and the food has been sooo good! Been twice and going back again tomorrow. I had the tacos and mushroom pozole, likely getting enmoladas tomorrow 😀 she gave me this sauce on the side that is very spicy but so good 🤌✨

Edit: went back for my last day in town. I got the enmoladas and a KFC taco. Again so good, everything I had was delicious. I think my favorite was the crunchy tacos.

Came here to try vegan versions of Mexican food and was not disappointed. Super friendly staff that speak English, and delicious flavourful food.
The enchiladas are worth ordering. The pozole is yummy but the star of the show to me was the tortilla soup. I didn’t know what to expect but mmm.

They also make their own tortillas!

Some really interesting options on the menu that I haven’t seen before which was great! We shared nachos to start and then enchiladas and crispy tacos for mains. The food was all really fresh and delicious and comes in decent portion sizes. The lemon pie is also worth ordering for dessert if they have any left!
We got there just over an hour before closing and it was pretty empty but filled up after we arrived so you might struggle to get a table depending on the time.

Scary good!

I had to choose this title, because the KFC tacos tasted like KFC and it was scary but sooo good. I will def be back, looking forward on trying their cesar salad which includes KFC chicken😮. To be very honest I wasn't too fond of their pozole, however thier whipped cream lemon pie was sooo good!!

Playa del carmens best vegan spot

Love this hidden gem: their KFC oyster mushrooms are UNREAL! 🤤 and the pozole is the best in town. If you’re still hungry, try the lemon cake. The whipped cream is drool worthy

Pros: Great service! , Great atmosphere!, Great food!

We asked for recommendations from our server and everything was delicious!! The Baja cauliflower tacos were my favourite, and the blueberry lemonade was very good. Amazing authentic Mexican vegan food, with so much flavour. Going back tomorrow for more tacos and to try some of their vegan donuts!

Nunca tomaron mi orden

Llegue con el tiempo contado ya que tengo un vuelo más tarde, al principio todo bien me ofrecieron la carta, después de mi llego una familia de extranjeros a la mesa de alado a quienes se les tomó la orden primero que a mi y se les sirvieron los alimentos, estuve 20 minutos esperando y el mesero me decía “en un momento te la tomo” y seguía haciendo otras cosas, nunca llego ese momento, tomé mis cosas y me fui.

Pros: Si eres extranjero te atienden primero

Cons: No te atienden

Bad service and very poor food quality

I ordered a fresh juice and the nachos. The waiters served the glass with their fingers at the edge which shows poor hygienic standards. The nachos came with a disgusting yellow sauce that should probably have been a cheese imitation but tasted like a mix of rotten vegetables (potatoes?) and a strange spice. I ate the guacamole that was served with it but they charged the full price. I do not recommend this.

Authentic vegan mexican food

If you need any indication of how much we liked this place it's the fact that we visited 3 times! There were so many things on the menu that we wanted to try and the staff were so friendly. The flautas were my favourite but I also enjoyed the enchiladas, Sope, tortilla soup and tacos. The food had a really authentic feel and the portions were big. Definitely recommend if you're planning a trip to PDC

Pros: Super friendly staff, Fully vegan, Great drink options

Cons: Felt so much hotter inside than outside!

Enchiladas and Tacos

We had the enchiladas and tacos which were equally great. Loved the atmosphere, the chill music and the friendly waitress. Would totally recommend this place for local, honest and delicious Mexican food.

Best Service

We had some of the best tacos ever here.
3 tacos for $130 pesos I loved all three:
Kentucky - with breaded oyster mushrooms
Choripapa - with chickpeas and potatoes
Barbacoa - with cauliflower and adobo sauce
They even make their own tortillas.
We also shared the Enchiladas with beans cheez, rice and avocado for 155 pesos. Delicious and not too spicy.

Water of the day was 25 pesos - it was pineapple and perfect on a hot day.

We definitely want to return to try more things.
Service was beyond friendly!

Pros: Amazing service , Homemade tortillas , Good prices

A vegan haven amidst the Playa chaos!

Fantastic food and a great venue with lovely staff. All your Mexican street food favourites, but vegan. Fresh tortillas made on site by a team of women. Can’t recommend enough.

Pros: Everything is vegan, Lovely owners and servers , A welcome break just a few blocks from 5th Avenue

Cons: That it’s not nearer home!

The best vegan Mexican PDC

I have made it my mission to eat at every vegan spot in PDC over the last 5 weeks, and can say Plantivoros is easily in the top 3 of the city.

The menu is entirely authentic vegan Mexican, which is rare around here since most places sacrifice quality of their dishes by adding a plethora of different cuisines to their menu in hopes of grabbing your business. Plantivoros on the other hand keeps it to what they’re good at, and I appreciate that!

I’ve ate here a few times and everything is great, but naturally some are better than others. The nachos with Pibil rocks, their enchiladas are bomb, the tacos are great, the tlacoyo or quesadilla is fire. The only critique I’d really have is that the bread for my Cuban torta was a bit dry, but they do give you a side sauce for a reason. Otherwise it was great.

The staff is super friendly, and prices are right. It’s a plus that it’s a walk away from 5th Ave, so far touristy. If you’re vegan, give it a try for sure.
