We were disappointed with this lunch it was just OK, nothing to rave home about. We paid $14000 for the set menu which included freshly squeezed juice and a light pumpkin soup with cream to start. Then for main we had browned rice, carrot sautéed in a light peanut sauce with beans and a small light salad. It was "alright",... More

I wish this restaurant were in Brooklyn! Delicious, healthy food that draws on fresh ingredients and whole grains. We went back the next day to have the menu del dia for lunch again! The first day our menu included passion fruit juice, amaranth soup, brown rice with pesto, a baked empanada stuffed with sweet potato & quinoa, salad, and a... More

Quinoa seems to be the superfood of the moment so I thought I'd give this place a try whilst in Bogotá. I'm very glad I did. It's situated close to the Botero museum in a quaint little building. I sat down for a three course dinner of soup, then quinoa with mixed vegetables and salad, fruit juice then syrupy mango... More

After reading all the reviews, and being vegetarian it became my mission to dine here. As others have pointed out, it's situated two blocks to the left (towards Monseratte) of Museo Botero. What a delight, the food is well seasoned and scrumptious. The cafe is set in a beautiful intimate colonial space. After having a few set veg meals, this... More

In a country known for meat and chicken, it was a pleasant surprise to find this small totally vegetarian restaurant two blocks from Museo Botero. The service was great and the set price lunch was good. I would suggest you say for their salsa picante. The food was simple and mildly spiced but the salsa was fantastic. The two of... More

This place offers brilliant home cooked veggie set lunches for a great price. If you are fed up of rice and salad set lunches then this is a great place to go. They also sell food and ingredients to take away at the front. Really cute little ladies who serve you too, nice place to refuel!

Went with family for lunch - 1 of 4 of us vegetarian. It is a set menu with some variability. With not much spanish, we looked at what others were eating and drinking and went with that. Absolutely fantastic! One of the best vegetarian meals I have had - left nothing on our plates. Ambience: a small friendly boutique like... More
