This place runs in two parts: a take-away section and an eat-in, all-you-can-eat buffet. We went for the buffet - there was a good range of choices - chickpeas in a tomato sauce, roquefort pizzas, carrot souffle, soy stew, ricotta tart - and a fresh salad bar with good crisp veggies. Juices and desserts were included in the price. All the hot food is a bit 'nice school cafeteria' quality - tasty and filling rather than creative and gourmet! - but there's lots of it and it all tasted good. Well worth a trip. (This restaurant is located one floor up, inside a small shopping mall, nearest the Florida entrance. So be on the lookout for the mall entrance - it was just a small opening in a security screen on Florida when we were there.)

The best thing about Granix is that you get a huge variety of vegetarian ( and vegan) food from many different cuisines - a welcome change after days of eating Argentinian/Italian, the usual option for vegetarians, which is tasty but a bit monotonous. At least 12 starters, an excellent salad bar,about 10 mains, and about 10 desserts - drinks also included ( no alcohol). Plenty of pulses and vegetables - a rare sight in Buenos Aires! I would recommend going for a late lunch when you are really hungry - not after a large breakfast as we did! It isn`t the cheapest option ( about £10 a head) but is very popular. Also a take out bar which is probably a lot cheaper. It`s an all you can eat cafeteria rather than an atmospheric restaurant but there are plenty of those around and you can stock up on protein and vitamins here if you are vegetarian and find a lovely local place in the evening!The biggest problem is finding it - it is upstairs in an improbably glamorous covered Galeria off Calle Florida and not really signposted. We nearly gave up on it but it was worth the effort. Find 165 from neighbouring shop numbers and look for the stairway on the right hand about 1/2 way up the mall. Once you are on the 1st floor it is obvious.

Three of us ate lunch at Granix during December, 2012. Although you can purchase takeout by weight, we did the all-you-can-eat buffet (tenedor libre). The food was healthy, tasty, and with plenty of variety. There were more than a dozen appetizers, another dozen main dishes, an amazing salad bar, a half dozen different deserts, and several juice options. We paid about 70 pesos per person and concluded that it was good value. Ambiance is not remarkable, but it is reasonably good for a lunch. Once we were at the address (Galeria Guemes, Peatonal Forida 165), it took us several minutes to find the place until we realized that the access to the restaurant was up some stairs from within a covered shopping mall. By the way, the phone number is 4343-4020, and the hours are from 11:00 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. Happy eating!

Went for a sit in lunch here and it haf ask the atmosphere one might expect from a mall-based buffet. Good value as you can stock up all you can eat. 57 pesos when we went. Not the tastiest veggie food, but lots of it!

This was a great find in my opinion. $13USD for all you can eat lunch and juice/soda. I'm not a vegetarian but welcomed the change from the typical steak and Parrillas. There were a lot of salads, quiches, soups, pastas, lentil milanesas and desserts to choose from. The atmosphere is very cafeteria style. The food was great. The restaurant was upstairs through the Mitre entrance in a shopping galleria on Florida Av.
