Delicious breakfast

We had a lovely breakfast this morning at Playa Detox. Cute spot, friendly service. Sat outside by igaro Blanco (150 year old tree) First off we shared some hummus and fresh crunchy seedy tostada chips. I had the enchiladas verdes filled with fresh avocado and a green smoothie. My husband and son enjoyed their verde and Rojo chiliquiles and smoothies. We will plan to cone again on our next PV visit.

Pros: 100% Fresh Healthy vegan, Delicious sauces, Friendly service

Quite good, will come back to try other offerings

We had the red chilaquiles and the hotcakes; both were very good. The service was great and friendly. We will definitely come back and try something else. The only downside was that we sat at one of the two tables outside and smokers kept coming right in front of us and stink out the air; next time, we’ll sit inside.

Came back to Playa Detox today but this time for lunch. Once again, it was excellent. Our waiter, Augustin was was most welcoming, polite, friendly, efficient, knowledgeable
. The food was delicious and well presented. After 2 visits within the week, I gotta give it top marks. And yes, I will come back before heading back home in a couple of weeks.

Back for a 3rd time on this trip and this time, I had the Taco Barbacoa ( red cabbage, onion, special seasoning with a squeeze of lime and hot sauce). Delicious 😋

A great first stop in MX

The food. Obviously the FOOD! But we also loved the pet friendly vibe as well as the preservation of nature. If you pay attention you can see that one window or part of the building was built around the beautiful large tree that sits in front of this sweet spot.

Pros: Fully plant based - no guessing here , Kid friendly , Pet friendly

Best Vegan Burger

I enjoy going to Playa Detox. Their playa burger is probably the best vegan burger in Vallarta (that is not beyond meat). Everything else is okay. I would say other foods need a little more flavor.

Pros: All vegan, Breakfast, lunch and dinner options

Cons: Pricey, Hit or miss

Very nice location with Mediocre Tasting Food

Came here and was pleasantly surprised with the environments. It’s well developed and nice hangout spot. Menu had many options and are all vegan. Food arrived and was somewhat dissatisfied with the taste. It really lacks flavor and needs improvement on this area. Burger was pretty good but el pastor tacos really don’t taste well.

Pros: Great location with chill environment , Reasonably priced , Completely vegan

Cons: Staff don’t speak much English , Lacks taste and flavor, Don’t order al pastor tacos. Tastes horrible

Wholefood all vegan place

i shared the burger, thai zoodles and falafel with my friend and took a choc cupcake to go

The zoodles didn't look to amazing at first sight but wow o wow the flavor was on point
Also the burger was super good the falafel thing was ok
I really liked the cupcake as well

I love that they use healthy ingredients and it's an all vegan place 🙏🙏

Every time I eat it gets worse

Too expensive for what they serve. The are is not a very turĂ­stic place for what they charge. Quality of food is average or below. UPDATE: I have tried this place around 3 more times after my last review and every time I try it gets worse and worse, to the point that I was served green enchiladas with a very acid flavor and they needed to replace them for red enchiladas. The flavors are generally very strange and they do not represent tasty Mexican dishes. I am not trying this place ever again since my last visit.

Cons: Very weird tastes, Got a very acid green salsa in my dish

Needs improvement in taste

The food tastes weird. We had pastor tacos (the taste was unfortunately really bad), Avocado sandwich was fine (but it was mixed up with tuna sandwich) and enchiladas which also tasted a bit weird and random in flavor.

We tried it several times, but every time at least one dish doesn’t taste good. Not recommended.

Pros: Fully vegan , Good service

Cons: Expensive for the taste of the food

I really really loved the pancakes! I also had a smoothie I really liked!
The juice was not really cold and also the taste was not really special I wouldn’t recommend it.

Pros: Nice atmosphere

Cons: Far away from the center

Best vegan restaurant in Puerto Vallarta!

During my stay in Puerto Vallarta, I went to Playa Detox and I was positively surprised with the ambience, food and beverages they offer.
I ordered a gluten-free burger made out of lentils, and for dessert I had a cacao cheesecake. Both dishes were delicious, and I will definitely go back.
I totally recommend this restaurant.

Pros: Healthy vegan dishes in the menu, Ambience, Service

Very disappointed

Detox is a good name for this place but take as a warning that you may have to Detox after eating there. I was sick for 3 days after having a Happy salad which should be renamed Sad, first of all the salad was more like a soup, it was a small portion but had a least a half cup or more dressing, made maybe to cover up the wilted greens that were part of this Sad salad, now I love lots of dressing but this was soupy.. I always ask when traveling about the sanitary conditions and was informed by the help that all the food is freshly prepared and they showed me the ozone machine that purifies the food. So I felt somewhat ok with ordering, but as it turned out the food was not fresh and the machine doesn't work.
The desert I had also was not fresh, the nuts on top looked like they were old.
The guacamole was ok, looked fresh but don't know about the purity.
The vege juice was ok.

so yummy!

This place is incredible. Order anything, you can't go wrong here! The coconut ceviche was my favorite. The smoothies are so fresh and tasty too. I wish I had this place back at home!!
