Everything is nice, but if you're used to food with more salt or seasoning, you may find it rather dull. The passion fruit-based juices are not as interesting as their names might indicate. The salad dressing was very good, but the vegan "feijoada" could have more mushrooms and tofu. I'm not vegan, but I greatly appreciate the vegan and vegetarian... More

Found this place on trip advisor. The staff were fantastic. Unfortunately this did not reflect the food. As a vegan restaurant I thought it might be more experimental with food but the green salad came out as lettuce and a bit of vegan Mayo with a radish on top. (Pictured) the main course was inedible and the drinks were less... More

Everyone says Brazil is not the place for vegans. Well it seems that Brazil is changing! This place was a cosy and stylish restaurant with a thoughtful and diverse menu. Food was prepared quickly and it was very tasty. Great experience of vegan inspired Brazilian food.

The only thing to complain is that i found the menu was quite small ( i think it's because i am used to my... More

Yes, vegans strive to maintain good health, but we can also use some tasty treats now and then. :) For me, this place is a bit too much on the healthy side. The day's offerings (a tofu quiche and feijoada) tasted bland to me and my fiancé. I realize we come from the US where food is more spiced, but... More

This is a very unique restaurant. They offer two dishes a day, one is always gluten free. No one spoke English when we were there; however, they have an English menu you can ask for. The location is a .8 mile walk from the Botafogo metro station along a bustling street with lots of shops. It's very easy to find.... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Rio. It has become a little bit expensive these days - like everything else in the city - but it worths a visit. They have a fixed menu with 2 options per day, according to the seasons. The juices are really great (try the passion fruit + ginger one), as much as... More

It is hard to find a vegan restaurant in Rio but Vegan Vegan is very good. We were able to have traditional Brazilian food vegan style. It is located in Botafogo and as tourists we had a bit of trouble finding it but the meal was worth it. The cashier was very nice and spoke some English so it was... More
