Restaurante Veggie House

San Jose, Costa Rica


rating star

We only are here once, but they had great options for vegan and gluten free - had the portabello burger, which even had gluten-free and vegan buns. Amazing find! Also one of the owners was extremely nice and gave us a bunch of advice on where to visit in Costa Rica.

If you are trying to travel vegan in Costa Rica, you won't find many restaurants that feature that word on their menu. My son and I wanted to check out Veggie House because we were staying at Hostel Bekuo near San Pedro mall in San Jose, and we saw the name on a map. The restaurant is only a couple of blocks from the hostel, right next to the main entrance of the mall.
We were feeling hungry, so we went there right after we arrived at the hostel, and it proved to be our favorite place to eat in all of Costa Rica. Every menu item is a visual treat and worth a gourmet rating. We felt very special each time we went there, breakfast, lunch or dinner. If you are in San Jose, you really need to try this place out. The staff is so friendly and the food is just the right blend of heartiness and nutrition and presented so attractively. Prices are very affordable, scaled to attract anyone who wants great vegan food, whether local or international travelers. The restaurant looks a bit small on first impression, but some of the seating is hidden from view. If we lived near there, we would be definitely be regulars. Be sure to ask what the featured menu items are for the day, and save some room for some decadent looking dessert. They do great take out too, if you want to pack a lunch for the sightseeing.
