We went to this restaurant for lunch and returned voor breakfast the next day. The food was delicious, and also the juices I can highly reccomend! The owners are a super friendly couple, the man invited us on a little hike through the jungle in their enormous backyard to the river which was beautifull. The restaurant is very cozy and... More

This seems like the only vegetarian restaurant in town. The food was good, but much more expensive than other options. There was a smoking area out front and we were getting smoked out while we ate. The owners were friendly and welcoming.

The restaurant was good and the owners are quite friendly. It is located right on the main street so it is easy to find. It isn't a bargain (for Ecuador), but they do have good vegetarian eats. Entrees cost between $6 and $9.

Came here for dinner - I had the quesadilla and my friend had the chickpea burger. Both were filling but not overwhelming portions and it was very hearty and tasty food and the fries were very good. The place is a little quirky but has a nice warm atmosphere and the staff are friendly. We were here on a Saturday... More

Had the vego burger and chips ( AKA "fries" ) with a fresh fruit juice. All delicious and freshly made. This is not "fast food" - so expect to wait some time even if your order is first on the list for the staff.

Vegetarian comfort food is pretty much spot on. I ordered the felafel sandwhich thinking I wasn´t hungry enough for a burger, but this it was massive! And rather deceptively, a wrap rather than a sandwich. But it was fresh and delicous and I came back the next night (despite not actually being a vegetarian). I came here by myself initially...

for vegetarian food to be good for non-vegetarians, it has to be SO GOOD.. this wasn't even fine.. The quesadillas had so little cheese it looked like a joke.. come on! its quesadillas (cheese must be pouring through the sides...) it had 4 DORITOS in the middle and some tomato sauce.. and olives.. not a good mix.. the falafel sandwich...

We only stayed in Mindo two nights but we ate at la Leona de Mindo two times. The menu isn't very large but everything is fresh and delicious. It has a great atmosphere with friendly people and great music. It's located close to the central park. We tried their veggie burger, burrito, and chimichanga. We also tried the banana "batido"...
