“Serendipity!”
Reviewed December 24, 2013

Wandering around the Poblado district I came upon this little gem. They have a choice of two kinds of veggie burger: garbanzo or lentils. I had the lentil bonus (with onions etc) and as a combo with chips and a home-made fruit juice mix. I sat outside on the sidewalk under a roof as it rained. It was the kind of pleasant experience that makes a trip. Prices seemed quite reasonable. The menu is fairly limited though I hope to try the veggie lasagna.

“I hate giving vegetarian restaurants negative reviews but......”
Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

Eating tired Microwave reheated processed fast food is not a pleasurable experience even in a meat free environment

“Possibly the worst meal I've ever eaten!”
Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

My friends and I were excited about going to this vegetarian restaurant, we love vego meals, and love a good lentil dish. However, this restaurant was nothing but a disappointment. There didn't appear to be any lentil dishes at this lentil restaurant.. And anything that may have been a lentil product appeared more like deep fried bread. We tried several dishes from the menu and they were all horrific and extremely greasy. The lasagne in particular looked like a heart attack on a plate with a huge strange cheese flap on top and the flavour of cheap gone off red wine. There was no atmosphere, and the staff seemed unhappy. The only good thing about this restaurant was the free filtered water... But it wasn't enough to wash the taste nor the grease away.
I seriously do NOT recommend this restaurant. There are many other fabulous restaurants just down the street.. Go to one of them!

This place was a welcome blessing! I got my non vegeterian brother there three times...one time it was actually at his request!
