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...

Beeing vegetarian, there are normally not many options to eat in South American cities. I visited this place with a group of friends and we've ordered different dishes, The salad was yummy, so was the potato cake and the spinach soup - only the quinoa dish was not as tasty as we expected. The prices aren't cheap but not too... More

The food here is nice and healthy. It's not the fanciest or the tastiest vegetarian food, but it is a good alternative in what is a limited vegetarian market in Sucre. We had the menu del dia quite a lot while staying in Sucre for five weeks and this is incredibly good value. 20 bolivianos for a three course lunch:... More

The chicken curry is thai style and very tasty. The papas rellenas were very good, but you can get much cheaper ones elsewhere in Sucre so probably worth trying something else on the menu as the food is very good.
