Amazing food!

Wow what a treat to have this sort of food here. They have a whole range of items in the menu, raw, vegan, vegetarian, smoothies, juices, deserts, pasta, wraps and breakfast. The raw pizza was delicious and serving sizes generous. Definitely worth a visit!

I've had a great range of things from their menu and I can assure you that everything I've had it's been great. Super healthy without being "brown food" Mantras not only has delicious food, it also has great service and great prices.

I went for lunch at Mantras and they had an amazing selection of lunch specials. It's a beautiful small place, I sat in the little outer patio.

Mantras provided me a spinach stuffed plantain that was delicious. The restaurant is worth the walk if you are staying downtown.

Well, this place is located in the really charming neighborhood of Escalante so the oasis reference is more of a culinary appreciation.
