“REALLY healthy food that tastes REALLY good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

To start... Fabrizio & Sandra are just great people. I think we would prolly have hung out at Luv Burger even if the food was marginal.

Even better that the food is so tasty. Their burger is tasty. I love the BLAT (coconut bacon!!!). We would do the 8AM yoga class and get the smoothies after. The pancakes are really tasty and come with a ton of fresh fruit.

They homemade kambucha (sp?) was also top notch.

Go to Luv Burger!

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

They have a great selection of healthy food options and the food is amazing! Not only is the food great, they have excellent cappuccinos, and a lovely (shaded) patio in a pretty courtyard. The staff was also very friendly.

“Good vegggie burger”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

Restaurant was next to the place we were staying and I was excited to find a vegetarian restaurant in CR, actually I should say it was a vegan (no cheese, dairy or eggs) restaurant. You can only eat so many plates of beans and rice, before you need something different. Nice to have a tast of home. I had the veggie burger with grilled pineapple and toasted coconut (in place of bacon) and BBQ sauce. They make their own patty and they were quite tasty and the staff was very friendly. They had indoor seating and outdoor seating in a nice courtyard. Pricing seemed a bit high, but I guess they were in line with what places on the main street were charging. Burger did not include fries or any sides- had to be purchased separate.

“Fantastic burgers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

One of my favourite places in town to have a healthy meal. The ingredients are fresh and truly good quality. If you are looking for a cool environment and healthy place, look no further.

“Great food in a wonderful town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

Chose to go here after a recommendation from the Samara info center. We arrived at 5:15 and they were closing for the night (hours are normally 10 - 5), but they stayed open for us and our family (including two finicky kids) were able to eat a great meal. It's great to find such a well done vegetarian meal

I wouldn't hesitate to eat here again and wish we were staying longer in Playa Samara to do just that!
