I was there with my girl friend, we take a menu of the day and a menu Lakshmivan and both were amazing. The soup was really tasty, the juice just amazing (one of the best i ever had) and the rest of the meal was also tasty. I wish i had more time in Arequipa to come back to this... More

I dont normally leave reviews but after suffering 3 days of food poisoning-if I spoke good Spanish I would have reported it. Secondly the service was the worse I have experienced as they refused to accept the fact that they brought the wrong main dish despite both of us saying the lad wrote down the order wrong. Normally Vegetatian restaurant... More

If you want something else than pollo and meat, walk in here. The milanesa with mushrooms and mashed potatoes was just excellent. The jugo mixto is delicious. Highly recommended family run vegetarian Restaurant.

I ordered the set menu and it was tasty and fairly reasonable in price, I think if you order anything else other then the set menu it may not be as good hence the negative comments. The set menu is really nice and i would highly recommend it.

We took a gamble based on previous reviews but were really happy here. I'm quite a fussy eater too! Not the most atmospheric place maybe but good service (we were in a rush and they were extra quick when we told them this) and lovely food. I really enjoyed the tofu salad and my boyfriend who isn't veggie loved the... More

The lakshmivan menue is nice but it takes a bloody while till you get your food. Staff ran out and bought ingredients while we were starving... The price is good for european budgets but definitely not cheap for peru! My husband went hungry for another dessert...

Cannot believe this place has such bad reviews, which is why I'm leaving my first ever review. We found this place on our first night in Arequipa and the food was so good that we went back the next night. We both had the set menu the first night and curry dishes the second night. The food was full of... More

My girlfriend and I found this wandering around town and wish we hadn't. We ordered garlic bread, pesto spaghetti and a roasted vegetable sandwich with french fries. 35 minutes later we were given 6 pieces of burnt toast (4 pieces were the crust), boiled vegetables dumped between two pieces of stale bread (no french fries) and a watery pile of...

I popped in here for what I thought would be a quick lunch because I was in the mood for vegetarian food. I ordered a soup and salad. After 30 minutes of waiting a mediocre soup came. After an hour, despite asking for it again, still no salad, so I paid for the soup and left.

We went there a couple of times due to the fact that they are one of the only places in town that offer vegan food, but this place is very overrated. The 20 soles menu was very disappointing, and it was the first time in my life that I had a burger without a bun and vegetables in it. The... More
