We had an extremely disappointing lunch here. Everyone else in the restaurant, bar one other couple, ordered the set menu, which was a very heavy looking baked dish we didn't fancy on hot day. We ordered the falafel and roast tofu from the menu, this...More

Our first dinner in Sucre was here and it was very nice. They advertise as vegetarian however also do some meat dishes. My boyfriend had the chicken curry and I had one of the tofu & rice dishes. Both were a bit too salty but...More

Atmosphere is a bit dark and boring but the dinner was really good. Vegetarian Falafel as well as meat was good prepared and fresh. Not the hippest place but good alternative for good food for fair a price.

It is always hard to get good vegetarian food around south america but they really put an effort in their meals. The staff might be a little slow but the lunch menues are a delicous and super cheap splurge even for non-vegetarians!
