I visited Samsara at least once a Day for the past two weeks. The menu is very similar to the restaurant in San Marcos. Amazing vegetarian food with many glutenfree options and delicious desserts. My favorite place for sure, why Cook when you can have...a delicious meal for only 50q.More

I ordered their most popular plate (the Lao Tzu...stay away, seriously) and it was absolutely HORRENDOUS. A mound of Luke warm vegetables topped with a sauce if you want to call it that, with stale rice. I proceeded to take it back and understand if...there was some kind of mistake. The server rolled his eyes at me and said he'd take it back. He never came back out to address the situation. Upon paying, he charged me for the dish and KEPT THE CHANGE! When we addressed this situation calmly, he said there was nothing he could do. No service, no hospitality, no desire for feedback. Worst food, and unfortunate experience all around.More

I (vegetarian) and my girlfriend (vegan) have tried every vegan / plant-based / health-food restaurant in Antigua and Samsara is by far the best! Firstly, they’re the most affordable. We dont feel like we’re being upcharged as vegan tourists in a non-vegan culture, which we...sometimes felt at other restaurants. Secondly, their portions are generous! Most times we packed a little box to go because we couldn’t finish our two plates. Thirdly, and most importantly, the food is just INCREDIBLE. The perfect balance of flavor, texture, color and temperature. Each plate is a work of art. Fourthly, the staff is extremely friendly and flexible (packing things to go, ordering ahead, etc.) We ate here 3-4 lunches a week during our stay in Antigua, so naturally, we tried the whole menu. Everything is a hit.More

Still my favorite health food/yummy food in Antigua and the only place I know where you can get kombucha on tap. For the first time I sat in the back room and the waitstaff wasn't so attentive to us there, but when you're out in...the main room they can see you better. Lots of gluten free and dairy free desserts and lots of gluten free/vegan options in general.More

enjoyed the flavorful vegan fare. LOVED the Samsara platter, the babaganoush was smoky and delicious. Great quinoa croquettes. LOVED the wok with tempeh. Great curry and ginger flavor on spirals of 3 different veggies. healthy and delicious! My son got the "cheese" spirals which were...good but I liked the Wok better. Lots of dishes coming out looked great. Only thing I didn't love was the cheesy yoga/new age music that seems to be the standard in vegan places.More

We liked the vibe of this place. It was clearly popular, it had nice decor and interior and the menu was bursting with wholesome and healthy vegetarian dishes. We tried the wok bowl and found it very pleasant. Prices were reasonable.

We found this small cafe/restaurant on our walkabout of Antigua and were attracted because it offered organic local produce and lots of vegetarian alternatives for one of our group who was a vegetarian. Great atmosphere and great food. Also sells lots of locally produce merchandise.

Four meals here in four days in Antigua - everything I tried was delicious, healthy and healing; the menu is extensive, ambiance cozy (pay attention the symbolism of decor and books ;), food made and served with love and smile .... big two thumbs up...from a rather picky vegan ;)More

I went to Samsara for breakfast and ordered the tofu scrambled, which comes with a small side of hummus and avocado slices. The food was SO amazing, full of flavors and with the right level of crunchiness on the vegetables. I also ordered a kale/banana/smoothie...that was very rich and silky like. Everything was delicious and prices were good for the size of the food ans its quality. Totally recommended.More
