Unfortunately was closed (on a Tuesday at midday) so perhaps closed permanently?

Love it

It was a good experience for me, the price was reasonable and the food was delicious. What I liked most was the lasagna and pescado.

Pros: A lot of variety and all is veggie.

Good food at a good price

The menu of the day is 4 items from their buffet for S/.10. Free bottomless drink with/without sugar. Good servings and tasty.

Good value

This place was very near my hotel, so for me very practical. there was a large queue in the street for some office also in front of the restaurant which did not look nice, but the place itself was fine.

There were many dishes to choose from. the staff did not speak English, so i'm not sure what I ate, but it tasted alright. Nothing very fancy, but for 10 soles you could choose 4 dishes on a well filled plate and you got free camomile tea.

average food and reasonable prices

A authentic restaurant with average food and reasonable prices. You have to ask for vegan options and explain what vegan means (no dairy, no eggs, no cheese). When I was there just four options were vegan.

Glad it was there

There's nothing else vegetarian in this area, and I was hungry, so it was just the right thing. The pre-cooked food is displayed behind glass and you can get combo plates of 2 or 3 items. Everything was fresh and good.

Pros: quick, convenient, inexpensive

Cons: arroz naturel is not exactly brown rice

Good food, good location, good price

This place was good for a lot of different reasons. They don't have haute cuisine for pennies, but it's a great value.

First of all, I like the concept of the buffet where you can see the food you're ordering. This really helps when you're in a foreign country. Even if you don't speak Spanish, you can simply point to what you want.

The price is only 7 soles, as of October 2014. For that price, you choose 4 items in the display which they put on a plate, and that includes a glass that you fill with either sweetened or unsweetened tea.

The flavors were good on the 4 items I ordered. The only thing I didn't like is that the food wasn't very warm.

The location is good if you are in the historic center of Lima, where a lot of tourists go.

All in all, a very good value in this part of town.

Pros: Price, Location, Buffet style

Cons: Serving temp not hot enough for me

Also then had a piece of Chocolate cake lovely. Staff smiled and were friendly.Place was nice and busy.

Pros: Good food, Good value, Good basic

Food so so, service terrible

After finding this restaurant on Happy Cow decided to go there for lunch. There were three of us, we were on vacation. We started off with some juices that were good, but could have been better if cold. One person ordered the hamburgesa, which was okay but salty. The other person had the broccoli battered in egg dish, he said it was delicious. I ordered a plato economica, arroz jardinero con platano (rice with veggies and bananas). One person got his meal, but it took almost 20 minutes for the next dish to come out. They ate when they got their dish so the food wouldn't get cold. They had both finished and I still hadn't received my food. The waitress never checked in on us, so I finlly got her attention and ask about my food. She said they had run out of that dish. When asked why she didn't bother to tell us, she said she just found out, 40 minutes after we ordered. She was unapologetic. Fed up, but hungry I ordered the arroz chauffa without egg. It tasted fine, but the bad experience ruined the whole meal for me.

Pros: cheap-ish $2-3 per meal, close to tourists sights, food decent

Cons: terrible service, unfriendly staff
