We had a fixed menu, the main being a plate of several different interesting dishes. It is a lovely atmosphere, looking like a large house more than a restaurant inside. Strange to be called Vegetariano when you can choose to add fish to the meal, but Patagonia is not great for veggie food so this is a real gem. Nice friendly staff too.

We were so over meat in bariloche that we were craving vegetarian. We’d already had Ren Vegetarian (also 5 stars) for lunch so looked up this one. Was a little walk out of town which we welcomed after just circulating the town centre all week. It’s a set menu for the day based on seasonal stuff. So you can choose whether you want soup, salad, mains, dessert but there’s only one choice for each.
It was perfect, between my dad and I, we got a soup, salad and a shared main (portions for two) and it was more than enough food. Absolutely delicious and it’s a family run business so the waiter and waitress were lovely, great English and they also give you a gorgeous hole brewed tea at the end. NOTE: if you’re like me and can’t take caffeine before bed, don’t drink it. Was scrumptious but has black tea so was tossing and turning all night. It all came to less than 500pesos for two of us without tip, super reasonable!

In meat rich Argentina, vegetarian food, other than pizza and pasta can be hard to find. This place is a great find. The fixed menu of fish or pure veg makes the choice easy, but a blackboard description of what is on offer that day would help even more. The variety of veg on one plate was good and all very fresh and tasty. Very friendly service too in a cosy cottage setting.

You will be offered vegetarian or fish, which comes with the same sides on the plate, about 7-8 in all. Be aware most of these are cheese heavy so not suitable for vegans. There is no menu and we weren't even told the price. Two meals and two glasses of wine came to 470 pesos. They accept card payments. Unfortunately there were only two people serving and it was too busy for them alone. We waited more than half an hour (no exaggeration) after initially asking for the bill before we were able to pay and leave. This was after I had to get up from my table twice to chase up the bill. I think they simply forgot originally, but made no effort or apology when it was made clear we'd been waiting so long. This spoilt the night and I wouldn't say the food is so good it makes up for it, so I wouldn't recommend eating here based on my experience.

The restaurant does not offer a menu, but a variety of options that include a huge dish with a variety of dishes that cater a variety of vegetables. It is possible to obtain a version with fish as well.
We were 3 adults. We started with 1 soup and then shared 1 and 1/2 trays. It was more than enough (we had some left overs).

I would only say that the acoustics is not great, so it got a bit loud when full (even though the tables were not closely packed).

They offer a glass of a mixture of fruits and tea, which helps digestion.
Do not miss on it. Specially if you are in the company of vegetarians/pesquetarians.
