Quinua y amaranto abrió sus puertas en agosto del 2005, posicionándose como la primera tienda de comercio solidario en el barrio La Candelaria. Su propuesta como un restaurante de comida saludable fue cogiendo forma, ofreciendo un menú diario variado, nutritivo y con precios justos. Buscamos asociarnos con pequeños productores que puedan garantizar la procedencia orgánica de su oferta. Empanadas de Quinua, Galletas de Avena, Semillas de Chía, Cafés Orgánicos, y otros productos hacen parte de esta continúa búsqueda por una alimentación plena y consciente.

Small charming place that serves one meal to all. On the day we went it was a soup, salad and lasagna. All good. 6 people cost about 45 USD.

While I am not a vegetarian, this restaurant is a proof that excellent food may come in different forms and ingredients. The whole menu, that is very reasonable priced, comes with soup (spinach), main dish (something like vegetarian moussaka or lasagna) and dessert (quinoa con...leche). The restaurant is very small, 10 minutes walking from Museo del Oro. Charming and beautiful.More

They only do a few things and do them well. Try the traditional dishes at this stop. It’s really quaint and cute. Expected to sit close, but that adds to the charm.

If you eat a lot in this place you will have to order twice, but in the other hand the flavors and the plates are good vegan options

This restaurant typically has set menus of the day that you can get for around 20,000 COP or less and they come with a starter, main, and dessert as well as a juice or tea. The main far is vegetarian, however, on Saturday's they also...make a killer Ajiaco soup which is the famous dish of Bogotá. It's a potato based soup that includes a mountain of shredded chicken, corn on the cob, capers (they take the flavor to another level!!) and is served with half of a huge avocado and with an arepa. I couldn't have been more full after I finished it all if I had tried!! The women who run the business are so friendly and you can see tourist and locals alike entering the building at a constant rate to get some of the delicious far. The other great thing about set meals is that the time from when you order to receive your food is almost instant! I couldn't recommend this any more highly.More

The restaurant is situated on narrow street in Bogotá’s la Candelaria area. It is a small restaurant with an intimate feel to it. There isn’t a lot of space so sometime diners share the main table which seats up to 6 diners with four additional...tables in each corner of the room with ability to seat 2 diners. I arrived in the afternoon and there was a set 3 course menu. Starter was a tomato soup, which was very nice and flavoursome. The main was rice with beans and lettuce & guacamole which I enjoyed and found very refreshing! Desert was a a type of Jam which was okay. Overall a really good experience the staff were really polite and nice would definitely recommend a visit as the ambience is great!More

Located in the old historic area of Bogota, this restaurant is mostly recommended. They served a set lunch which includes fruit juice, main dish (change every day) and a desert. It is a small place with few tables only. Not to be missed
