Liked it , didn't love . Too much soy products for me . Loved the pumpkin seed albondigas soup ! Would return for lunch , though hope they could get more inventive with vegan cuisine outside of soy . PS I am not a vegan - just enjoy meatless meals on occasion !

I am so grateful for this place! I've been to PV a number of times, and I always eat here at least twice while I'm visiting. They have a wonderful variety of food and it changes each day, so there is always something new to try. They usually have some kind of tea or fruit drink that is yummy as... More

Our last trip to PV (six years ago), this place had been a lifesaver for us vegetarians. This time, we found many other places that served us excellent vegetarian food, but I am happy to report that Planeta Vegetariano remains one of the best options for hungry vegetarians. The food is absolutely "pure" and it tastes wonderful. The service is... More

This cheerful place offers a great selection of vegan and vegetarian food, buffet style! We had several homemade salads with the greatest sunflower wheat bread, kabobs, pumpkin seed 'meatball' soup, curried veg and chilled oat milk. Friendly and relaxed place for a healthy vegetarian meal.

On our first full day in PV we searched for and found this small restaurant near the main church in old town. We arrived just as they were putting out the freshly prepared lunch buffet. There was a nice selection and the food was very good. When we first arrived there was only one other table of diners. Within 20... More

I think it was my third day in Puerto Vallarta that I discovered this place and after that I ate here twice almost every day. Fuel up in the morning, out for a day of fun and then back for dinner in the evening. It's been almost a decade and I still think about this place. I've talked to other... More

Loved the albondigas soup made of sunflower seeds . All the salads were delicious , especially loved the cauliflower " ceviche " great hot & cold buffets . I do wish there was an alternative to the soy kabobs as I avoid soy and would enjoy a " meaty " feel . Hint hint !

Well recommended by the locals, it was very good vegetarian mexican food although we would have liked more variety. The food was good though, quite yummy and it was not hard to find as it is right beside the church.

I'm not even a vegetarian, but Planeta Vegetariano is one of my absolute favorite restaurants anywhere in the world (and I've been to over 60 countries). It's not fine dining -- just plain, simple, healthy food made with wholesome ingredients, delicate spices, and lots of love. It's all buffet, but the choices are different every day. Nearly all the options... More
