Of the Central American countries I've visited, Panamá and Costa Rica seem to be the best for finding good vegetarian fare. Nonetheless, it's not always available at every restaurant, and it's sometimes hard to find in a menu when it is available (especially if you're...More

Service was on the poor side, but I had been here a few years ago and wasn't surprised, and it didn't bother me too much. However, I ordered a veggie burger and not only was it terrible, I wasn't even sure what the stuff on...More

If you like the 'menu of the day' you are in luck for lunch with a variety of good vegetarian food, drink, soup, desert, etc. A la carte is ok but there deserts are excellent.

Vishnu has a few locations around the city, we went to the big one that's more like a sit-down restaurant than a take-away place. The price is amazing, so very affordable for what you get. That being said, the ambiance is a bit like a...More
