I had no idea how extensive their menu was. All freshly prepared and with non animal products and delicious! I tried about 7 dishes in the short time I spent in my holiday and will come back to Cancun just to eat there. They are new for what I heard from the lovely staff but with the quality of food and sooo tasty seems like they have all the experience. Cakes and desserts are unbelievable and all very healthy. To think that I only came to have a fresh fruit smoothie and ended up trying many things. I will recommend it to everyone, even the meat eaters will find it truly amazing. I am a fan of mexican food and could not believe their enchiladas. Yummy fab food. To think that the idea of veg cheese would make me doubt. Not any more! The owner Janet came to our table to ask how everything was and so did she to every table while the place was busy. I honestly think that the only fault is they do not advertise enough as we came to know about it by chance during a shopping trip on a rainy day at the Cancun mall. Just loved it.

Vegan Planet and the lovely waitress that works there really made our trip much better than it turned out to be. The food was excellent and the staff very friendly. Can not speak highly enough of this place.

We only found out about this place, opposite the Plaza Outlet, in town, the night before we left, and kicked ourselves. It is sparkling clean and modern, and everything was tasty and filling and fresh, truly fresh with juicy tomatoes, shredded greens straight from the garden: the chili pasta with cauliflower and broccoli, the almond milk with nutmeg, the cashew cheese enchiladas, the pastries. Everything is organic, fresh, and the chef is apparently a genius, trained in US, the kind who makes you realize that eating healthy food is not a chore but a godsend. It is new and has just opened in the last few months, and I hope they advertise or no one will find them!

First off, I have to say we are not strictly vegan, but we are definitely passionate about high quality ingredients & mindful of the impact of our choices on our health, planet, and animals. So we were THRILLED to have found Vegan Planet! We hosted a large gathering there and also ordered our wedding cakes - would do it all again in a heartbeat! Chef Miguel is truly passionate about his work, and he is a creative genius!

My husband and I got married in Isla Mujeres on Jan 3. We hosted our first family dinner a couple of days before the wedding at Vegan Planet. Although not everyone in our family is vegetarian, each and every person in our party (of about 16!) absolutely loved the food. The menu is incredibly varied and all items are made with the highest quality of ingredients. I had the mole enchiladas stuffed with potatoes and topped with a hazelnut crumbled 'cheese' that was to die for. Several people had the lentil soup, which was hearty and full of veggies. All of the drinks & desserts were equally delicious.

We ordered five cakes for our wedding, which we had to transport to Isla Mujeres on our own (FYI, we did not find any bakery or independent baker in Cancun willing to transport to the Island because most cakes do not arrive in good conditions!). Luckily, our cousin in Cancun was able to pick up the cakes and transport them in her car on a ferry to the island (long & logistically complicated journey but so worth it!!). Miguel provided the cakes in a ready-to-assemble fashion, with containers of toppings for each cake, and a friend of mine decorated them before the ceremony. THE CAKES WERE A HUGE HIT!! Everyone loved them!!!

Hoping to connect with Miguel, as we know he provides cooking classes in New Mexico & Cancun. The restaurant, the restaurateur - really and truly - simply the best all around.

This is one of the few exceptional dining experiences in Cancun. The food was tasty with as much organic content as possible. The portion size was generous and the price was very reasonable.


The chef, Miguel, was helpful in directing us towards organic produce and the restaurant also carries an interesting array of culinary options to make your own healthy smoothies and sweets.

Don't miss the mock ice cream.......both flavors are great !
