This charming little restaurant is tucked away off a steep lushly-planted "street" that does not allow vehicles. You either trek up or down depending which direction you're coming from to get to it. Once you enter and find a table, you can set your stuff down and waste no time going up to the buffet. The woman overseeing the restaurant,... More

Wonderful vegan and vegetarian buffet restaurant that's also very economical. Great hot and cold choices. Lots of vegan stuff. Changes on a daily basis. Really nice service from staff all around. We went there almost every day during our 5 day stay in Puerto Vallarta. We tried other vegan/vegetarian restaurants but kept going back to Planeta Vegetariano because it was... More

This eatery came highly recommended by our friends. They were so right! Delicious, very reasonably priced, and perfectly located near the cathedral. The lasagna made of sweet potatoes and beans and their tempura made of garbanzo flour were heavenly. I'll comeback to PV just for this!

This small restaurant is a little gem! We enjoyed all that was on offer in the buffet. The pasta with pesto was really tasty and so were the chickpea-rice balls. This place is fine for vegans too. $105 pesos for all you can eat. This was such a pleasant relief from the all-inclusive buffet!

We went here for breakfast one day. The restaurant is very small and up a set of stairs so we almost missed it but its very close to the chapel. For such a small place they had a large variety of food in their buffet. They had the standard pancakes and fruit type breakfasts as well as an array of... More

Found this place behind the Cathedral on a tiny uphill street. Cozy little restaurant featuring all you can eat vegetarian food. Lots of salad options with grilled peppers, zucchini , squash, carrots, mushrooms, broccoli, and cauliflower. Also, had chickpea and cucumber salad, sauteed spinach,macaroni salad and potato salad. The main course options were large stuffed poblano peppers (Chiles rellenos) with... More

Planeta Vegetariano serves an all-you-can-eat vegetarian food buffet with a Mexican slant. On this visit they had a variety of vegetable side dishes, salads and fruits, a delicious soup that I think was chayote based and a wonderful stew with peppers, squashes and seitan. Everything is self-serve buffet except desert, which this night was delicious moist cake. The restaurant is... More
