I loved this place. They make the most incredible fried plantain, the staff are lovely and service is quick. The veggie burgers are REALLY yummy, and so are the rice dishes! For any vegetarian, this will become your favourite place in the city.

Massive portions of tasty veggie food. Good for those wanting to cut down on spending as you can share most dishes.

Fair prices, and lots of options. Lots of tourists but the food is enjoyable. Not the most service minded waitress but no problem either.

10 soles set lunch every day. Very tasty, salad buffet, good attention of the waiter. Five minutes walk from the plaza de Armas. It's the most economic vegetarian/vegan option in the city center, I truly recommend it.

Salad for start in case yo decide a local menu. Interest options and flavours, of local traditional but veggie food. We went back several times... Never disappointed.

El Encuentro is conveniently located very close to Plaza de Armas. It is not a fancy place, sort of hole-in-the-wall, but boy, they have an amazing selection of vegetarian and vegan food! Fresh juice, fruit salad, fancy barista-style cappuccino, and of course, very tasty faux-meat...More
