Great food in a fashionable psychedelic environment - Edit

We were stoked by the ambience by the first sight. We ordered a menu del Dia and a burger. The soup and main dish was almost as cold as the desert which was rise&soy pudding, although extremely delicious! Its beautifully served with colorful eatable flowers. The burger really good too, the bun was awesome and not the usual white wheat. All in all the taste wasn't blowing our minds but still delicious and served with a fresh salad on the side - the healthy version of a burger menu ;) The price was as high as the psychedelic environment. Definitely one of the more expensive ones we've been to in Colombia (21500 for a burger). Sweet and friendly English speaking staff. We visited the new address and it's only two months old. A lot of seating variations and possibilities amongst Plants and plastic animals. So if you want to trip over some delicious food we definitely recommend you to fall over Verdeo in Medellin.

Conocí a Santiago Cruz - Edit

Jajajaja si lo conocí mientras ambos disfrutábamos un delicioso plato en este estupendo restaurante (obvio el estaba en otra mesa). Pero ahora sobre la comida, es deliciosaaa y si mi bolsillo me deja iría cada semana. La atención es muy especial y el ambiente es perfecto para tomar fotos para instagram ?

Pros: Ambiente hermoso, comida deliciosa , mejor shawarma vegana

Very nice atmosphere - Edit

The restaurant is very well designed with a lot of plants and wood inside. There's always a free table so no need for reservations.
I think it should be $$$ instead of $, for Colombian measurements it's not at all cheap. The rice plate is too small portion, order the wrap or burger instead.

Delicioso cuando hay dinero - Edit

Los platos son realmente deliciosos, pero sería bueno que no usaran queso en casi todo, de hecho la implementación de alternativas veganas a los lacteos, sería bastante interesante, por lo demás es excelente, tienen una carta super variada, preguntamos si podíamos tener la proteína de la hamburguesa asada y resultada que todas son así, es decir que no van fritas, la atención es muy buena, el sitio hermoso, los precios son altos acorde con la ubicación del local, hay que ir con buen efectivo :)

New Location - Edit

The best veggie restaurant in Medellín.
A few minuts of last location at Provenza.
Manila, calle 12 #43d-77

Pros: excellent food, vegan options, nice ambient, friendly staff, big portions.

Cons: Parking

not pleased - Edit

A friend and I ordered what we felt would be balanced and as the menu described. We were both disappointed. Perhaps the restaurant can have the servers assist in choices. Tom Kyai is my favorite soup. However, based on prior experience and the fact that I have worked with Asian chefs, it seemed the key ingredients were missing

Pros: location, decor

Cons: prices, food

Overrated, disappointing - Edit

First, most of the options have cheese, its not really very vegan friendly, we had like 3-4 options.
The hamburger had a pesto too salty, my partner and I noticed it. The criollas potatoes are made with WAY TOO MUCH rosemary (romero). The place is not inexpensive (as its listed), and for the food you get is very expensive. On July 2016 the hamburger costed around $20000.
You get way better options in Poblado, just steps from this restaurant.

Pros: good space

Cons: expensive, not many vegan options, too salty

esta bien - Edit

Good for travelers - Edit

I had dinner here tonight and it was excellent. The food is quite inexpensive, by North American standards. All of our party enjoyed the food. Another reviewer said they weren't English friendly, but our server spoke serviceable English and we were offered English menus. Everything is clearly marked as to whether it can be made vegan or not.

The portions were perhaps a bit on the small side, but they're so inexpensive you could just order more. If you're very hungry, get an appetizer and an entree.

I will be going back.

Pros: Delicious food, Friendly staff, Inexpensive

Cons: A bit hard to find

GREAT - Edit

I was impressed by the creative attractive menu and the very cool decoration and vibe of the place. The food was the best I have eaten in a long time! We left very very happy and satisfied. Thumbs up for the people running this place.

Great area, great food - Edit

Went here on a Sunday evening so not sure why it says "closed Sunday"

Had a big falafel wrap and beer. The wrap fell apart but all the food inside it was great. I recommend going here and trying it

Pros: Nice space, Good food

Decent food, small portions, pricey for Colombia - Edit

I ate here on a Sunday afternoon. I ordered the milanesa de frutos secos and the juice combo of the day. The food was good, but not enough green on the plate for my taste. The total came to 24.800 COP (they add a 10% tip to the bill). About what you'd pay in the USA, but pricey for Colombia (compared to the other places I've visited).

Pros: food good (it's cuisine), portions small

Cons: crowded on Sunday, prices double what lunch costs elsewhere

Worth a visit - Edit

A nice and trendy place with a good vibe. A lot of different options on the menu. We tried their burgers once which where good but the best thing where the small potatoes on the side! Absolutely delicious!
Also tried one of their set lunch menu, chili con quinoa with a fresh salad for starter. That meal was really nice too. Only thing I would complain about would be the juices, dont even bother trying them out. Expensive with no taste really, just watery.
It is more expensive than other veggie restaurants in the area but still worth a visit I'd say.

Pros: Atmosphere, Location, Nice food, many options

Cons: Expensive, Juice with no flavour

Great atmosphere, good flavours - Edit

This is perhaps the vegan-vegetarian restaurant with the best atmosphere. Its beautiful, colourful, comfortable, bright... just great.

The lunch menu costs around 16,000 COP ($5 USD) and today included a juice (ok), white-bean soup (delicious), salad (normal), pasta as main dish (ok BUT NOT WARM ENOUGH!). This last one was really a bummer.. how can you have such a place and not make sure that the main dish is warm enough??

But still.. the place is so nice, that it deserves to be visited. And, some of the food was excellent.

Pros: Atmosphere, Location, Some courses are excellent

Cons: Not warm enough main-dish

Nice trendy place with good food - Edit

I ate here once and had a nice time. The food is delicious and personal friendly. Tortellini comes in quite small portions, for dinner unfortenately not enough. Lasagne is big enough. HappyCow does not show the correct place on the map, check the address. Meals are relative expensive, 20.000 to 25.000 for a main dish and around 5000+ for a drink. But a nice ambiance!

Pros: Nice atmosphere and nice music

Cons: Expensive

Sometimes great, sometimes lacking - Edit

I honestly don't eat here very much. Why? For three reasons: they are more expensive than their rivals (i.e. Veg Station). Their menu is too innovative, it contains too many unusual dishes that don't fill me up. And their meal of the day is not always substantial. Having said that, their meal of the day sometimes rocks! That is one reason to come here. The other is because this is a great social spot to meet people. You can make friends in Verdeo but you would take them to Zorba.

Pros: Occasionally great meal of the day, Location, Exotic menu is okay sometimes

Cons: Expensive, Menu too insubstantial

Must go - Edit

If you eat anywhere in Medellín, make it Verdeo - the restaurant loved by omnis and vegans alike! Verdeo serves fresh, creative veg food in a beautiful location. Unfortunately, the price guideline is outdated - expect to pay 18,000 plus for dinner. Pro tips - check out the mini-market (vegan pesto aoili!!!) and ask to see the dessert menu (raw tamarillo-banana tart!!!).

Pros: Creative food, Beautiful restaurant, Awesome mini-market

Cons: Somewhat expensive

Oh yeah - Edit

They hit the nail on the head here. Amazing food, warm staff, great location, very well decorated and they were even playing some classic jazz tunes. Need I say more?? Love this place.

Pros: Amazing food, Awesome ambiance, Warm staff
