The food was tasteless, the service wasn't good and slow (although we said we were in a hurry). The food was expensive for it standard (they only except visa - no MasterCard)

Great restaurant, always eat here when I come to Montevideo. The food is really amazing and service is also great. They have a new girl attendant now who is just as good and kind as the other one.

This is one of the best restaurants we have been to in South America. And it's lovely that all of their dishes are vegetarian. Very fresh food, and you can tell that it's an experienced chef who loves to cook. We ate here twice, and ordered menu of the day both of the time. Just amazing food in a cozy... More

This was one of the best vegetarian meals I've had - and in a city where ham is thrown into every vegetarian meal it was very welcomed. The decor is beautiful, the food was incredible and the staff was very nice. My only tip is, don't expect speedy service. Like most places in South America you'll be there for awhile.

We went to Namaste thinking it would serve Indian food, but instead of being disappointed, we discovered a rich selection of freshly prepared vegetarian food, including veggie chivitos and tasty salads. They also make great cocktails and there is a fun space where you can sit on the floor at low tables, and where there is a selection of games... More

Great veggie food and a relaxing atmosphere. Try the veggie Chivitos or milanesa with a cold glass of kiwi juice. Can't go wrong with the service and menu!

Took the girlfriend there... I called beforehand to see if they did curry and they said that they did. The menu was just Uruguayan food but vegetarian (doesn't really work). They tried to make up for it by putting wasabi in everything we ordered. Was just grim. Like most places in Uruguay...the customer service was lacking a lot and they... More

As soon as you walk in, you are warmly greeted by (who I assume is) the owner of the joint. He shows you around with a nice smile and calm demeanor. You can choose to either sit on a table or on the ground - the last which will mean you need to take your shoes off. The menu offers... More

I have to agree with the reviewer who already said this in Spanish. I used to think it was hard to find vegetarian food in Buenos Aires, but it’s easy compared to encountering it in Montevideo! I was happy to find Namaste after a few days of so-so vegetable tortas, although I was disappointed to see that there was almost... More
