This place had good options for vegans and vegetarians -- it's basically make your own salad or wrap. For any vegans or vegetarans out there, there's only 2 dressings/sauces that you can have -- and if you get several items they all end up tasting the same because of the only 2 sauces you can use.

Dropped in for brunch in this fast foodish pseudo- heathy option restaurant. Food was ok but overpriced. Place lacks any charm there are far nicer places around. The staff look thoroughly miserable to be working here.

Staff were inexplicably rude when we asked about ordering a juice off the menu. There were five people behind the counter and no one attending the customers for several minutes. Food is ok but no organic choices. The wraps and the smoothies are quite nice. This place is overpriced considering the appalling service they offer.

This is a nice clean, friendly spot, well air conditioned, and a good spot to cool down on a hot day. They have a wide variety of cool drinks and fresh sandwiches made to order.

In the span of two weeks, I probably ate at Gokela at least four times! The food is fresh and filling, and it's good for you! Even if you aren't a health nut, the food tastes great and there's lots of variety. It's hard to find proper smoothies when traveling abroad, but Gokela nailed it!

While this is not exclusively a vegan restaurant, it does have perhaps the healthiest and freshest vegan options of any restaurant in Cartagena. You can create your own salad with a green, four other vegetables and two other choices (nuts, chia, quinoa, etc.). The amazing thing is that the vegetables are not only fresh but organic. There are vegan wraps... More

Amazing flavors and great choices for salad, warps, juices and smoothies. There's everything you need to stay healthy: from strength smoothies to weight loss juices. Great place.

My wife is vegan and that creates some challenges during travel. We had seen Gokela on Advisor, and stopped in. Excellent! We each had a Canasta a tu Gusto, about $3 bucks and filling , and a Jugo Detox about $2.50 US. The restaurant is very clean, organized, and the food is tasty. Great spot to put something natural in... More

Enjoyed a freshly prepared salad bowl at Gokela. It was fast & felt like a healthy take away. Different options available for vegetarians and meat eaters alike. Price relative to the walled city. 17,000 pesos for the Chicken & bacon cobb salad. Also serves burritos, rice bowls, protein bars and treats. If you try here & like like it try... More

Do not waste your time visiting this place if you have serious food allergies. Had the worst experience today after I ordered a salad. I explained in Spanish I was allergic to onion and apparently they could do the salad without onion. My server obviously did not pass this onto the lady making my salad and when I saw her... More
