One of the best vegetarian / vegan restaurants we found in Colombia - tasty food, good mix of vegetables / protein (compared to the usual carb heavy options elsewhere). We tried around 4 different dishes (lunch menu), they overlap somehow, but each time it was tasty. Great soups, nice service and half the price of other places.

Excelent option for vegetarian. It has really good options and very healthy food. It has breakfast and lunch for a good price.

After reading the reviews, we couldn't wait to try the food. When we got the food, it was disappointing.. It's OK, but not much taste. Basically vegetables with beans and brown rice on a plate.

We were recommended to Girasoles in the Walled City by another American couple who found it to be quite tasty. Since we are also Americans who sometimes eat vegetarian meals, we trusted their judgment on taste. First - There is only one meal on the menu daily. That is, everyone is served the same thing. This is not an issue.... More

I was excited to visit this restaurant after I read numerous reviews about the food and service. I left feeling underwhelmed and hungry. My family and I arrived for breakfast and we each ordered one of the fixed meals listed. Please be aware that you will receive exactly what is listed on the menu; nothing more, nothing less.

You will not have to make any compromises if you decide to dine here. From every respect they get 5 stars. It's a cute little health food store and restaurant. The staff is so polite and nice. Meals are fixed but you can customize if you don't want a particular vegetable or whatever. Besides being vegan, they accommodate for gluten-free... More

Whenever I go to a new city, I trying to find various restaurants that serve vegetarian food and try them. On this trip, it was recommended that I try Girasoles. It turns out that it is just around the corner from my hostel. The food is absolutely delicious and very creative. In fact, I've eaten here five times on this... More

Unfortunately, we did not have an experience like others on TripAdvisor. Apparently there was a special occasion where only one 'daily' dish was on the menu. And it was just tasteless and unimaginative. They closed down half the place and turned off the lights while we were still eating. We don't know why...

They have about 7 vegeterian (mostly vegan actually I think) options. I had the "Inslate piment con caldo arroz" so the Pepper salad with cold rice. It was refreshingly nice and served with a bean soup. There was a soy based meat repacement included! The flavours were amazing and you also get a free juice :)

Vegetarian option in the centre. Good price. From breakfast to dinner, right in the old town centre. There a different meal everyday, wich is perfect for workers, as well as tourist. Quit fast to be served. They unfortunately close early, 7.30pm. It is cheap too.
