First Review by GabBatailleur

yay - Edit

we were so happy to find this place in villa de Leyva. Boyaca is the land of cheese in Colombia--- good vegan options are hard, if not impossible to come by. This was one of the priciest meals we had in Colombia (though it was still incredibly inexpensive compared to the states). The portions were HUGE. The service was good. We were the only ones in the restaurant, but I assume that's because we showed up at 530 on Tuesday, just following a big holiday weekend. So much of the food was organic and vegan options were clearly marked. This is actually my first review leaving on happy cow (though I use it regularly)-- but I thought it was worth it since navigating through food in these small mountains towns in Colombia can be tough. I'd highly recommend it. If we stay another night here, we will end up there for dinner again.

Pros: ambience, clearly marked vegan options, organic + gf options too

Cons: can be difficult to find, hours may vary

Delicious food for everyone - Edit

The food was really delicious! We had the rice dish and a big quinoa rice salad (fotos), the portions were really big and the price is justified! I really recommend this restaurant if you're searching a place to eat for vegans/ vegetarians and omnivores.

great vegan options but on the pricier side - Edit

The location is wonderful and very atmospheric. Make sure you find it, it's tucked away st the main square.Vegan items are labeled clearly and the food is simple but good. We had a plantain soup, a salad and a rice dish, which were all very satisfying. Also the home made lemonade is delicious. But given that my salad was literally greens and veggies with vinager and oil and no special flavours or ingredients, i found 18000 cop a lot of money.

Pros: atmosphere, clearly labeled choices

Cons: rather expensive for what it is

Vegan friendly but... - Edit

Extremely expensive and not that tasty. I think there are 3 vegan options (the Romanera spaghetti which is only spaghetti, a tablespoon of dried tomato paste, black olive slices and mushrooms), a lentil/rice plate (with mushrooms, potato pieces, other veggies) and other than that, there's a soup and a salad... It is EXORBITANTLY expensive for what it is. The portions are tiny. The food is really not that good. Go to "Cocina Coreana" instead. The only good thing about this place is that it is in a cute courtyard zone of VIlla de Leyva, and the place is nice to be in. But the food: NO.

Pros: Nice location, Nice atmosphere, They sell natural products

Cons: Very expensive, Not very tasty, small portions, not very vegan friendly
