““Food tasty and healthy. Very pleasant environment. Excellent reception.””
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

We went last night to the restaurant "El Vegetarian" and would like to tell our very good impressions.
We were very well received by a gentleman who seemed to be the owner and that - always smiling - struggled to explain the dishes in Portuguese, translating names of vegetables and fruits with patience. The environment is very nice and cozy.
As a starter we chose soup and as a main dish we chose vegetarian to share which, including bread with carrot paste that was served when we arrived, made us really satisfied!
There was an option of dish with fish too.
They serve beer and wine, but we opted for fruit juices, which were very tasty.
The meal is delicately finished with a fruit tea, herbs and a little honey.
Until now,the best restaurant in Bariloche in our opinion.

“A great value for vegetarians and omnivores alike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012 via mobile

Everything home made and with a clear dedication to all details. The place is very cute the ambiance tranquil. The food is great and simple and surprisingly inexpensive for the value. We ended up going twice on our short trip to Bariloche

“A welcome vegetarian treat in Argentina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012 via mobile

After eating pretty stodgy and unappetising food for the past few days, arriving at El Vegitariano I knew I had come to the right place. The service was great, the food tasty and full of vegetables and the ambience and decor perfect. I would eat here again!

“A different, interesting choice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

This was a very different restaurant to any other we tried in Argentina. It serves fish and vegetarian food only and has no menu so to speak of. We were given a choice of 2 soups, pumpkin and tomato, and 2 platters for main course: only vegetarian or a mix of vegetarian and fish (cod).We, and our 4 children shared 2 platters. The food was potentially interesting, e.g. beetroot gnocchi and spinach soufle, but the flavours didn't match the descriptions, which was a shame.

In all, I would go back if I were with people who wanted to try it but I probably wouldn't choose to go myself.
