Hidden gem

The buffet restaurant is a bit hidden, you have to enter the building through the lobby of the Ipanema Beach Star and then take the elevator. The buffet still had a lot of options, even though we arrived just an hour before closing time. The staff was super welcoming, one of the cooks even spoke a little German with us. The food was great, and the atmosphere was very calm and relaxing.

Few options

This is my fourth vegan buffet in Rio. The options here were quite limited. But the quality of the food was great. I'm not one to eat raw or organic, but it was tasty. I give 3 stars for the options and the price. Not sure of I'd return though, but once again the quality of the food was great . 50 reais and 60 with card. 50 reais and I'd get double the options in magna or vegano da tijuca

Nice food but NOT ALL VEGAN!

Small buffet with tasty options but our waiter (who was very nice) immediately let us know that their "flexitarian" option that day was a chicken and pumpkin soup, and that if we wanted it vegan (without chicken) they had some in the back and could bring us a bowl. The vegan soup was our favourite dish by far, so it's sad to see them adding this unnecessary meat option to a buffet that was, otherwise, completely vegan.

Pros: Cheap, Good variety between dishes, Free tea!

Cons: Not fully vegan, Some dishes lacked flavour

Good, not Excellent

Another restaurant with vegan options..... I ordered by delivery and had no luck: the food (feijoada and quinoa risotto) was not tasty..... kind of tasteless..... maybe I'll try it again on another occasion.....

Mais um restaurante com opções veganas….. Fiz um pedido por delivery e não dei sorte: a comida (feijoada e risoto de quino) não estava saborosa….. meio que sem gosto….. talvez eu experimente novamente numa outra ocasião…..

Vegan Lunch

I’ve been to many vegan buffets in Brazi, and this might be the smallest. Their food is good, but nothing mind blowing. Their pumpkin soup was probably the best thing I had. The options for lunch were a bit strange to plate together and consisted of salad, two different soups, rice and veggies, a noodle bin that was empty the entire time I was there, hummus and bread. It’s all you can eat for a low price which made it a worthy lunch if you’re in the area.

Restaurante com buffet livre vegano em Ipanema

A comida é muito boa. Tanto no restaurante como pedindo no delivery. Todo vegano, o restaurante fica na sobreloja de um edifício, próximo à praia de Ipanema e ao metro da estação Nossa Sra da Paz.

Grande desconto para pagamento em dinheiro (abril 2023)

Pros: Totalmente vegano, Ambiente agradável, Gostoso

Muy buena opción vegana

Desapercibido desde afuera, hay que entrar a un edificio que parece un hotel y tomar el ascensor hasta el piso "P", donde se encuentran el spa y el restaurante. Spazziano tiene un buffet con comida caliente y fría, y hace un descuento por pago en efectivo. La bebida y los postres se pagan aparte, pero los precios son razonables. ¡Vale la pena volver! #Veganuary

Pros: Muchas opciones veganas, Muy buena atención, Todo lo que puedas comer

Cons: Es difícil de encontrar la primera vez, No está bien indicado desde afuera

Wonderful, tasty, healthy vegan fare. Not a fake meat in sight.
Open from midday to 4pm daily.
Buffet style with a relatively small selection but everything is delicious.

Pros: All vegan healthy food, Delicious , Friendly staff

Hidden little gem

I really enjoyed the variety of options they had. Everything is vegan and tasty. They gave out energy booster shots to everyone sitting down. Would highly recommend coming here if you can find the place!

Directions: walk inside the hotel, head up the elevator to level P and you’ll see the restaurant there. Enjoy!

Pros: Plenty of vegan options, Calm place to enjoy your meal

Nice selection

Very fresh and god quality food. Four or five salad varieties, three or four main dishes and a dessert.
You pay a set price. Ten reais less if paid by cash.
Only one dish wasn’t vegan. Most dishes don’t have sugar or gluten. Heavy on mushrooms for main dishes.

Many delicious options!

I loved walking around seeing more delicious looking dishes than I could fit on my plate. So I got three plates and everything was great!
