Really Solid Food

My wife and I was told that this place has the best mojitos in San Ignacio. We stopped by as we were exploring downtown and I was excited to see that they had a few vegan options, considering that the country is very meat heavy. We were advised to make a reservation to come back for dinner as it can get crowded.

We came back for dinner the next day and was not disappointed. There is not a vegan appetizer so I ordered a salad. With some salt, pepper, and the balsamic dressing it was a great start to the meal. For my entree I tried the chickpea curry and it was fantastic. My only complaint is that it was kind of a small portion and I could have eaten more. Since we were taking a tour to Tikal the next day and I was unsure about the food situation, I also ordered the Gado Gado (added crispy tofu) to go. I just had to try it warm and it was absolutely amazing.

If you’re in the area and need a good vegan meal that is not simply rice and beans and veggies, give this place a try!
Oh, the mojitos are great as well 😊

Pros: Several vegan options , Good drinks , Friendly and great service

Cons: No vegan appetizers , No desserts

Incredibly good!

My husband and I went here to eat today. Although there were only two vegan items on the menu, they were both incredibly good. We had the Indonesian dish, Gado Gado, and the Tomato Curry Chick Peas.
Everything about the place was lovely. From the caraf of cucumber water, the rich, fresh iced tea, the kind attentive staff, to the perfect dishes, we really loved the whole experience.

Pros: Incredibly good entrees?, Great staff, Beautiful building overlooking a park

Great couple of options

Friendly staff who knew what vegan was, we ordered the gado gado noodles and the tomato and eggplant pasta (just get no cheese as the previous review mentioned). Think there was another option or two but we didn’t get them. Food we had was great! Some of the best we’ve had in Belize.

Pros: Yummy food, Reasonable pricing, Good service

Cons: May need to book, Nothing labelled as vegan

Not the best but great option in San Ignacio

Like most places in Belize, will substitute ingredients for you, but beware, they make mistakes! My bf ordered pasta, telling them we're vegan and he would like to take the cheese off. It came with the cheese, they remade it without cheese, but we then realize the bread had butter on it. They were very upset about their mistake.

However! Food here is great quality, very tasty and they have 2 vegan options (without requiring modifications) on the menu. They tell us they sometimes have vegan chocolate cake. We also came here earlier during the day and got vegan pizza and vegan panini.

We're here during Easter and we find this our best option (Buddha bowl Belize is closed). Honestly they're not used to catering to vegans but very willing to learn.

Pros: Handful of vegan options, Happy to substitute ingredients, Takes visa

Cons: Makes mistakes

Nice ambiance

I originally posted this business on happy cow as they had always been very accommodating. During covid adjustments did not favor non meat eaters. Hopefully things will return to good.

Pros: Willing to adjust and accommodate, Best pina colada no cherry juice please, Good service

Cons: Pricey, Few options especially covid adjusted

Beautiful place, few options

I had the Gado Gado and it was delicious. The pizza looked quite delicious as well (they have a real pizza oven). But lots of meat and seafood in the menu.
Despite that I really enjoyed the cosy and beautiful place. Free wifi.

Not many vegan options, but modified

Disappointed for not having many vegan options, but they modified the pizza and they had the vegetable platter which was good. Nice atmosphere

Pros: Nice atmosphere, modifications made, By request

Cons: Expensive, and not many vegan options

Not many options

I was hopeful about going here with my group after seeing it was on Happy Cow, but there were very few options, and even fewer appealing ones. The server also didn't seem to know what vegan was which made me less confident.

I opted for a curry, which was super spicy! Luckily I like spicy food, and found it tasty, but be aware if you don't!

Pros: Tasty curry - very spicy!, Nice atmosphere

Cons: Few options, Staff might not know about veganism

It Would Be Perfect If All Vegan...

Yes, beautiful setting. Disappointed so many animal based selections offered. After endless questions about Vegan content, I ended up getting a simple salad. The dressing looked good, yet when I asked if it had honey, they said yes. They got me the 'ol reliable balsamic vinegar & oil dressing. Spent much time explaining the need for totally vegan restaurants, which the chefs & staffed took in with polite manner.
The entire problem with Belize, is the outdoor barbeques along the streets and the inquisitive tourists who settle for it. Outdoor street barbeques smoke is invasive and even walking to a vegan friendly restaurant is spoiled by having to pass by the smoke.
I would return for there salad for sure.

Pros: easy to walk to uptown a bit, lovely green setting

Cons: serves meats

A few good options, beautiful spot, a little pricey

A few vegan/veg options - we got the vegetarian wontons (very good), gado gado (pretty good but a little oily), and my partner got the veggie burger which I don’t think is vegan and loved it. Beautiful spot and good service.

A lovely lunch spot though pricey.

Decided to try this place as close to my hotel and based on the reviews. After the waiter had mentioned the daily specials, I told him that I was vegan. I chose the felafel in a pita with Israeli salad and tzatziki. When the dish arrived and I look at the tzatziki, I asked if there was any dairy in it as looked creamy. He said there was mayonnaise. I told him that I had mentioned that I was vegan. He went back to change it. He informed me that the dish would come out with no dressing but I didn’t want it to be dry. I explained how easy it was to make a tahini dressing with water, tahini with lemon juice etc. I asked if easier to change my dish ( it was quite busy and had waited a while for food to come out) but server told me that it would take longer so stayed with initial order. Felafel sandwich was delicious as was the vegan dressing they made. Was disappointed how small the portion for Israeli salad was ( a few forkfuls if that) and informed the waiter of this and was brought out some more which I appreciated. It is a lovely place with beautiful setting, food is fresh and there are several vegan options just make sure that what you are getting is completely vegan. Unfortunately no vegan dessert today😞

Pros: Several vegan options, Lovely setting

Cons: Bit pricey for amount of food you get, Double check your order is completely vegan

We had the gado gado and the house salad. The gado gado wasn't good (and sure wasn't similar to the real thing) and the salad was ok and small

Pros: Very nice sitting , Good service

We got the vegetarian wontons with guava dipping sauce, so good! And the Gado Gado was very flavorful and filling. Nice quiet garden setting.
