Delicious lunch

I have eaten so many times here and every time the food they serve is amazing. The almuerzo is a bit expensive (for Sucre), but its very worth it. Delicious soup, always two vegetarian segundos for election, a juice and dessert. I can't say anything about the food a la carta but the lunch is an... read more

El Germen is a decent restaurant. The food is healthy and the service slow. But, if I'm going to sacrifice and not eat meat . . . I will be heading over to Condor Cafe, Sucre's other Vegetarian option. Even for a meat lover like me, the smells that waft into the street from Condor Cafe call to me! But... More

It is always hard to get good vegetarian food around south america but they really put an effort in their meals. The staff might be a little slow but the lunch menues are a delicous and super cheap splurge even for non-vegetarians!

Had the soya burger to start and the grilled tofu as a main - great food especially the tofu. The service was fine and the atmosphere nice and cosy.

There is some truth in a lot of these reviews but our experience was as follows: Quite dark... Not all lights on but they switched one on where we were eating. Doesn't give a welcoming impression. The staff are nice if a little slow. There was one other table apart from us but still I had to get up and... More

I ordered the Papas a la Huaciana, and they were okay, but not amazing, and they took forever. My husband ordered the menu of the day, and it was a much better value, and seemed to come out more quickly at the tables where everyone ordered it, but it still wasn't all that impressive.

We went in this place, too much calm, i wold say boring. We ordered soups and potatoes crockets and spatzle. Everything was with bad cheese, and no taste. There is so much nicer place in Sucre...
