Amazing vegan meals! - Edit

This place blew me away! My meal was incredible - calzone with fries, chocolate macadamia brownie for dessert and kombucha to drink! The cheese in the calzone was stringy and delicious! Also love how they don’t use plastic ❤️

Pros: All vegan, English speaking, No plastic

AMAZING - Edit

I was so excited to find this restaurant was pretty much next door to my hostel. If you are in Quito- this is a MUST GO!
There is an outdoor herb garden, house made kombucha, amazing views, and you're at the top of a humble park in the city.
The staff speaks English and Spanish, and I loved that my server even said "We don't believe in borders here". So happy to visit a place that my perspectives were shared with others.
They offer a volunteer program short term for food trade (in the kitchen possibly and in the garden).
This restaurant also donates sales to animal rights groups and sanctuaries- writes "activist restaurant".
I ordered the kombucha with an almond cheese calzone, which came with a side salad. THIS WAS THE BEST PIZZA/CALZONE I've EVER had in my life. This restaurant not only supports a community, but is sustainable and lives up to their values and ethics. The food is amazing and while I sat and at my meal, I had a clear view of the valley below and the mountains with Cotopaxi in the background clearly! It was unreal!
I'M IN LOVE with this place and one day will be back 100%

Pros: landscape views/location, donations to nonprofits, pamphlets about AR, FOOD IS ON POINT

Cons: higher price range

Spectacular view and food - Edit

We stopped at Tandana for a respite at the midpoint of our full day tour of Quito and surrounding areas, bringing our non-vegan tour guide with us (or vice versa, I guess). The ambiance of Tandana is great, with a spectacular view looking out over a majestic valley with steep hills. We sat in a row of chairs at a counter in front of the large picture window, and enjoyed the view throughout our stay.

Our lunch choices included tofu curry, calzone, and black bean burger. All were excellent, with the calzone (including vegan cheese and vegan ham) getting highest marks. Our non-vegan tour guide said he enjoyed the burger very much, taking the extra effort to separate the patty from the bun in order to more fully taste (and judge) the flavor and texture of the patty.

We didn't have time to stay for dessert, but took a puff pastry, Milhojas, to go, which was very good.

The restaurant has an excellent, laid back, vibe, with nods to socially conscious causes, such as a sign at the entry saying they welcome refugees.

Pros: Beautiful restaurant, Great food, Socially conscious

Cons: None

The gold standard in vegan fare - Edit

Finally made it to this place when my being in Quito and their hours of operation coincided. This is now hands down my favorite restaurant. My buddy and I tried a good variety of what was on the menu . Every thing was good. You may want to try adding the falafel to the carrot soup, they really compliment each other especially when you add the avacodo dip that comes with the falafel to the mix. If you like chocolate like I do the brownies with macadamia nuts are way too good!

Pros: Service in every respect, The view, Quality and tast of the food

Cons: None at all

Fantastic food and amazing vista! - Edit

What a wonderful find Tandana was for us thanks to happy-cow. The vegan hamburger with potatoes and arugula salad was one of the best we've ever had. Other tasty items included quinoa soup, pizza with vegan ham, and falafel appetizer. Pedro was most gracious and happy to tell us more about this new non-profit restaurant that has been open for only 4 months. We highly recommend visiting for a meal and taking some extra time to enjoy the unbelievable view from inside or on the rooftop.

Pros: Excellent food, Good value, Friendly staff

amazing! - Edit

Great vegan restaurant in a hip part of Quito. The food was incredible - we had the curried vegetables and tofu and the margherita pizza with homemade cheese, so so good. Plus all the proceeds go towards the foundations mission of animal rights. Truly spectacular, not to miss for veg/vegans (or anyone!) in Quito

Nice vegan restaurant with great views - Edit

I had one day in Quito and had hoped to try a couple of the places listed on Happy Cow, but this is the only one I made it to. Luckily, the food was very good. We ordered quinoa soup, bruschetta, calzone, and a stir fry with quinoa. We also had strawberry and pineapple juice. For dessert we ordered their brownie and a chocolate chip cookie - don't judge, we skipped breakfast!! The only thing I wouldn't get again was the chocolate chip cookie. We had someone drive us there so I can't say anything about how easy it is to find. The views are very pretty and we watched a storm roll through over the city.

Pros: All vegan!, Good food., Nice service-spoke a bit of English if you need it

A MUST FOR VEGANS. - Edit

THEY SPEAK ENGLISH! A chic place with great food and a beautiful view from the window. I even got a second meal to go to save for dinner because this place is a rare gem and a must for vegans traveling to Quito. The employees are so friendly and patient when sharing and practicing languages. And I really like what they are doing. Also the map may be a little confusing, but it's on the corner of the road.

Amazing restaurant! - Edit

This is a restaurant not to be missed. The food is excellent, and presented elegantly. In our two visits, we had the quinoa soup, the veggie burger, the bruschetta, and chocolate pie. Everything was amazing. The "cheese" for the bruschetta was made in house - and by far the best imitation fresh mozzerella we have ever had. There is a nice choice of craft beer. The location is breathtaking - huge windows overlooking mountains and the valley of Guapulo. Each detail of this restaurant was done with upmost care - the tables and chairs were handcrafted from reclaimed/recycled wood and metal, the glasses and light fixtures from recycled bottles. The founders are all vegan and committed to animal welfare and nature preservation. Proceeds from the restaurant go to these causes. One of the owners spoke to us at length about their commitment working on legislation to protect animals, and to prevent animal testing. I wish we had a place like this near home - I'd be there every day!

Pros: Gorgeous view, Excellent all-vegan food, Involvement in social causes
