Description: CocinArte, the city's original vegetarian restaurant,is located in the oldest building of Leon (1620) a few blocks from Central park. The restaurant has a lovely green patio and soft world music is played which makes the restaurant a nice little escape from the buzzing streets of Leon. CocinArte specializes in international vegetarian dishes like falafel, pasta pesto, noodles with a mouthwatering peanut sauce or a flavorful Indian curry or chana masala. But you can also choose for a traditional Nicaraguan dish like Indio Viejo. The House special is "The CocinArte",a sizzling hot plate with sauteed veggie fajitas and vegetables. The menu offers smaller dishes like soups, quesadillas, tacos and salads For the carnivores there is a small selection of chicken dishes. Natural juices & milk shakes (without sugar!) are freshly made at the bar and a fine, strong organic coffee is served. All the food is made to order and ingredients are freshly cut. Packaging and take away is available. Open 12am -10pm, closed on Tuesdays.

“Some of the best food in Leon!”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

We've been to Cocinarte many times and it never fails to impress! The food is fresh, so there's a bit of a wait, but its well worth it. Cocinarte was a hit in our group, as well as bami mani (if you love peanuts), and the chana masala. A little difficult to find but keep searching! The drinks are great too.

Reviewed 8 September 2013

We spend a couple of hours in this restaurant because it was raining. We had a delicious meal, a good wine, and a fantastic dessert. Staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is 'muy tranquillo'. Perfect!

“Thrilling Vegetarian food”
Reviewed 7 June 2013

Very refreshing vegetarian selection! Definately the healthiest food I've had in Nicaragua, even great lettuce (which is hard to find).
I highly recommend the Ensalada Mil Colores. Not only is it colorful, but a great cross-section of vegetables and fruits.
The lady who runs the place is very enjoyable to chat with and speaks great english!
