Have visited this iconic place many times over the years when in Santiago. The place remains the same, fabulous vegetarian food, huge menu, and impeccable service. You won't be disappointed. Went there time after time after time. Not cheap but then again here you are paying for fresh quality food.

I went to this restaurant after reading their menu features "Quinotto", being a quinoa lover I absolutely wanted to try it. Once there I discovered a little gem and I returned twice. Located in the centre of Santiago, it can be very busy for lunch when lots of employees of that area choose it for their meal. At dinner it... More

Good if all you want is vegetarian chilean food. Orange juice was good as was the lemon tart and coffee.

Very popular with local business men and women for lunch. It's got a good menu with some interesting options. I ordered huevos rancheros, and it arrived like lightning. However, it was not the huevos rancheros that I would expect anywhere else. The ingredients were all fresh but lacking in a mole or seasoning, so the whole plate tasted a little... More

We had had this restaurant highly recommended by a walking tour guide, who said it had vegetarian meals and in particular we should try the Chilean bean and potato dish "porotos". We visited at about 1 pm and when we went it, the restaurant appeared full - everyone was standing at a long counter with their meal. This was off-putting... More

At first glance it seems like a vegetarian's heaven in Santiago, the menu has so much choice and variety. However, the atmosphere was a bit bleak, as were the staff, and the food arrived after about two minutes. It appeared to have been ready prepared, and was pretty dull and tasteless. Disappointing experience.

If you want local and healthy food this is the place to be! You can eat there or take away and have a picnic in the city centre and do some people watching ;) If you do want to eat there, go to the first floor. I deff recommend the empanadas, fresh salads, fruit juices and torta de choclo <3... More

A decent choice for vegetarian food in Santiago, with a large & well-priced menu (including fresh juices & a tasty seasonal vegetable quinotto). Food is quick to arrive & served in huge portions, but I found that the staff weren’t overly friendly & it took a little while to get the bill.

This place is amazing! Our family of 6 ate lunch here, and everyone left stuffed and happy. I am the only vegetarian in the family, but everyone, including the kids loved their food. Everything was fresh, and delicious. Portions are huge, so unless you are really hungry, don't think you will finish a fresh juice, soup and a main. The... More

The food was delicious and so healthy tasting! We had the Quinoa salad and Naturista lasagna and carrot juice. Very fast service and relaxing atmosphere. A must visit for everyone! :-D
