I had breakfast there with my sister who is vegan and we both loved it! We tried the huevos rancheros and mexican tostada, both delicious and generous portions, we could had done it with just one meal. Plus each dish came with the option of gallo pinto or fruits. And they have a 2x1 during breakfast (they apply a set discount regardless of what you orden, which doesn’t really limit you to get 2 of the same or a lower priced dish). Also, for those with pets, the people next to us had their puppy, so I guess pets are allowed.

I took my girlfriend to this restaurant before and we really enjoyed the food. Tonight we ordered the Mexican wrap to share. When we got the wrap, the fries it came with was ice cold and the soup was barely warm. We told the waiter that our fries was cold so he took it back. We were obviously expecting freshly cooked fries along with the customery apology. Instead we received the EXACT SAME FRIES that were refried and dark brown that TASTED DISGUSTING!!!!! (our waiter never uttered a word). We had a bit of the soup, which was now almost cold and ate the wrap which was actually very good. We have eaten here several times before. But now, i would advise people to go eat here at your own discretion. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! Mantras, you have lost our respect and the respect of our many friends who frequent your "restaurant". You have lost our loyalty. We will not eat there again, gross!!! This 3rd world behaviour is unacceptable. Your new mantra should be "Que asco!" I would give you a minus one star. But you get a one star because we enjoyed your food in the past.

Enjoyed lunch on the back terrace which is quite pleasant surrounded by plants and lots of fresh air.

The portions are quite large and filling. It was difficult to choose from all the veg options. Overall the food was tasty.

Next time I will pass on the fresh juice as it was green but tasted like water.

I find it so frustrating when a restaurant advertises itself a 'vegan' and then they serve you food that has cheese -_____-

Really great, fresh food. Creative cuisine. I highly recommend the bowls. Friendly staff, even when I had an issue of them not putting cream into my drink as stated on the menu, they dealt with it nicely (I had to prod a bit and not give up, but response was fine). Drink would be boring and overpriced without the cream.
