So impressed was i with the quality and originality (and value!) of the veggie here i went on both my nights in Salta. Located very centrally its easy to find. I’d have to sat the decor looks a bit tacky (bit too much neon and...acid colours for me!) but don’t let that put you off. I had some of the best veggie food (lasagne, baked aubergine, salads) i have ever had (i live in London with lots of offerings). Literally made me feel buzzing with health the next day! Very good value too. Incredible find. Waiter a little too Ernest, serious, but very well meaning. You have to go!More

Honestly the food is terrible. It’s an insult to vegetarians. We had the quinoa steak sharing meal for 2. It was basically a dry patty with enough stir fried veg for 6 people. It is described as coming with soy and being of Asian flavour,...but honestly tasted of nothing. I should have realised this from the outset when they served a slice of pear, with a chunk of pepper, pesto and a gherkin as an appetiser. Bizarre. I think the better reviews are likely from people who haven’t had good decent veggie food, but in the UK where this is plentiful, this was super gross. Service was alright but agree with the comments that it was slow. But the guys there were nice.More

They try too hard. Vegan food can be simple and good. The server was slow and standing around a lot. Would not recomend.

The good: the food which was truly excellent. The OK: the service (except for speed) The not so good or bad: no wine in stock; no credit card - machine broken; very slow; the bathrooms; the dinig room in general.

Portions are way to little and wayyyy to expensive for what you get... was really dissappointed and had to wait 30 Minutes for a tiny salad...

Huge range and delicious food. We enjoyed everything we ordered. Menu is in English and Spanish and the food is made fresh (which does make it a little slow but worth the wait)

Full vegan menu with many options!!! Super quality food and great service. The buckwheat omelette and the vegetarian lasagna are highly recommended.

As the only vegan restaurant in Salta, I had to try. The food was ok but not as enticing as the menu (in Spanish & English). I arrived when they opened at 1905 and they had run out of beer. The soft drink lemonade should...have been mint and ginger but I think they had no ginger. The menu interpretations were way off, Thai salad was good but no hint of Thai, I think they had run out of coriander too. The paella was nice but the use of seaweed substitute was not effective, and it was topped with hummus! I arrived 1905 and waited until 2020 for main course. If you want an edible surprise this is the place to go. The food is good but not what you expect.More

Ate here 2 nights in a row. Had the menu del dia the first night and then grilled veges the next night. Both meals were well presented and tasty. Service was polite and efficient.

During our stay in Salta, we came twice to this restaurant as it was very surprising and tasty at the same time. We really recommend this place for people who enjoy the healthy but also original and tasty food. Also, the choice for the drinks...was big and original again. Just perfect.More
